Trump Decried For Comment On NFL Player's Death

  • President Trump tweets about undocumented immigrant who killed NFL player

Irsay recently announced that he will be paying for the funerals of both Jackson and Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe who was also killed in the accident. Monroe and Jackson were pronounced dead at the scene by the Marion County Coroner's Office. He says the request stems from the numerous aliases used by the suspect.

Orrego-Savala had been deported twice - in 2007 and 2009 - according to Indiana State Police. "The guy made a mistake and obviously it cost two people's lives", Bouchez said. But he notes that there's already "pretty strong circumstantial evidence in the case". When the driver pulled over, he and Jackson were struck by a auto and killed by an immigrant from Guatemala.

"We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy", the Democratic prosecutor said in a statement.

The Democrat is handling the criminal case against the suspect, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala.

The president used the death of National Football League linebacker Edwin Jackson to hammer Democrats for perceived weakness on border security after authorities revealed the drunk driver who crashed into Jackson's ride share was an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala.

The crash highlights the need for building a U.S. -Mexico border wall, "ending sanctuary cities and stopping illegal immigration once and for all", he said in a statement. The Washington Post's headline read, "Man accused of killing Colts' Edwin Jackson was in the US illegally".

"He's very distraught to say the least", Orrego Saval's attorney, Jorge Torres, said.

Soon after Trump tweeted for more aggressive anti-immigrant legislation in the wake of Jackson's death, critics denounced the president for indulging in a disgraceful bout of blame game and highlighted his duplicity. He was deported twice before.

Orrego-Savala is facing four felony counts stemming from the Sunday crash. Immigrants, it turns out, were not the root cause of these deaths.

A pretrial hearing for Orrego-Savala is scheduled for March 21.

He was arrested following the crash along Interstate 70.

He remained jailed Tuesday but has not been formally charged in the crash.

IN police identified the suspect as Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemalan national. Jackson's roommate, Chad Bouchez, responded to Trump's tweetswhile talking to CBS News and said that the 26-year-old linebacker "would not want that".

As of Wednesday morning, Orrego-Savala was in police custody in Indianapolis. He was charged late Tuesday by federal prosecutors with illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien.

An immigrant who was living illegally in IN when he was arrested in a suspected drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man faces a court hearing. He faces up to 10 years in prison in that case, which would be handled after any state charges are resolved. They say he was walking away when they caught him.

Police believe Monroe had stopped to help Jackson who had become ill that morning.

It remains unclear exactly when Orrego-Savala returned to the US after his last deportation.
