Another Person Killed By An Illegal

Twice-deported Guatemalan involved in fatal car crash that killed 2 men in Indianapolis also faces federal immigration charges

A previously deported citizen of Guatemala, who was arrested Sunday for being involved in a fatal car accident that killed an NFL player and another man, was federally charged with illegally re-entering the U.S. after having been deported, which is a felony.

U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler, Southern District of Indiana, announced these charges Tuesday in Indianapolis.

According to the criminal complaint, Manuel Orrego-Zavala, aka Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, was arrested Feb. 4, 2018, by law enforcement in Indianapolis for being involved in a fatal accident on Interstate Highway 70.

At the time of his arrest, Orrego-Zavala provided law enforcement authorities with the alias, “Alex G. Cabrera.” But officers with U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) soon learned — through cooperation and information sharing with the Indianapolis Metro Police Department — his true identity was Manuel Orrego-Zavala, a citizen of Guatemala.

The complaint further states Orrego-Zavala was arrested by deportation officers with ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in October 2006, and removed from the U.S. to Guatemala in January 2007. Upon his removal, Orrego-Zavala was prohibited from legally re-entering the U.S. for 10 years.

In March 2009, he was again arrested by ERO. In May 2009, he was removed to Guatemala and prohibited from legally re-entering the U.S. for 20 years.

Orrego-Zavala will remain in custody while the case is investigated by Indiana State Police and Marion County (Indiana) Prosecutor’s Office.

The immigration charges will remain pending until the state concludes its criminal charges.

A criminal complaint is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven otherwise in federal court.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney William McCoskey, Southern District of Indiana, who is prosecuting this illegal re-entry case, Orrego-Zavala faces up to 10 years of imprisonment, if convicted.

Pelosi and other liberals are embracing these illegals over born and bred American citizens. Why aren't these politicians behind bars for their illegal acts? They have broken our laws.

So an illegal has to kill two people before they get noticed by the law. Now I understand.

Yet we have zero (ZERO) information from the mainstream media on how many are the victims of similar attacks in this or any other country.
It's like they're saying to us, "It's okay, you'll get over it."

News Flash: We won't get over it in your lifetime, so stop trying to assuage our indignation and reluctance to accept your reality.
