Mexican illegal immigrant was 'drunk' during fatal crash

An illegal immigrant, who has been removed from the United States seven times, had consumed '12 beers and was driving at 100mph' when he crashed his van and killed a father-of-three.

Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, who is from Mexico, was going over 100mph when he lost control of his 2001 Dodge Ram work van and crashed, killing 58-year-old Silvano Torres.

Prosecutor Ryan Lindberg said Garcia-Velasco was driving down Interstate 80 around 1pm on Wednesday when the incident occurred.

Garcia-Velasco told officers that he had consumed 12 beers the previous evening into the morning of the crash, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

During Garcia-Velasco's hearing, Lindberg also said the man had been removed from the US a total of seven times.

This guy needs to be put out of our misery. He obviously has no respect for himself or others.

Why would a work van even have the capacity to travel at 100mph??

A lot of people on here like to complain about drunk driving enforcement. I wonder if they still feel that way...

Inexcusable whether you're an illegal immigrant or white trash from DE

How can anybody possibly get drunk on twelve beers? 😉😉

Because he's only 5'5" and 130 lbs. Thats how.

And where are the goofs who contend we should have open borders??
SEVEN times kicked out and what was the penalty for coming back? A free ride home.
I wonder if the agents dropped him off close to a hole in the fence?
I'm in favor of three strikes here.
Get caught in the USA illegally and on the third offense you are summarily executed.
No trial. No lawyer. And no "rights". left where you were killed or hung on the fence like they used to do with pirates as a warning to others.
Of course, Mexican vacations for Americans would also decrease for obvious reasons.
No big deal.
