Orrego-Savala was living under an assumed name and had been deported twice from the United States, only to re-enter illegally both times.
One of Orrego-Savala’s victims was a professional football player for the Indianapolis Colts, Edwin Jackson, whose promising future was cut short on Super Bowl Sunday due to the “resistance” of liberal Democrats for a tough, common-sense immigration policy. Blame can be placed squarely upon the shoulders of liberal Democrats.
How many more tragic incidents like this must occur before liberals get the picture? Judging by some of the insane responses to Congressman Todd Rokita’s tweet, below, many!

Police have confirmed that the driver who is held in the death of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe was an undocumented immigrant who used a fake name and has been deported twice in the past.
Indiana State Police detectives have determined the driver was 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala. He gave police the alias Alex Cabrera Gonsales after the early Sunday crash that killed Jackson and Monroe.
“Orrego-Savala is in the United States illegally and has previously been deported on two occasions, in 2007 and again in 2009,” Sgt. John Perrine said in a statement. “State police investigators are working with U.S. Federal Immigration Officials and they have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala.”
Orrego-Savala is being held in the Marion County Jail. Investigators will work with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office to file criminal charges in the case.
