When I heard this, I immediately thought of Kate Steinle. I’m getting sick and tired of Americans being killed or murdered by people who shouldn’t even be in this country. Life is dangerous enough without adding in an avoidable existential threat. As VP Pence noted, this was “senseless and avoidable.”

President Trump on Tuesday called the death of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson another “preventable” and “disgraceful” tragedy, after police identified the suspected drunk driver accused of careening into him as a Guatemalan citizen in the U.S. illegally.

Edwin Jackson, 26, and Jeffrey Monroe, 54, also in his vehicle, were hit and killed around 4 a.m. on Sunday on Interstate 70 in Indiana – apparently while standing outside their vehicle on the emergency shoulder. Monroe was reportedly Jackson’s Uber driver.

Indiana State Police identified the driver of an F-150 truck in the incident as Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, who had been deported in 2007 and 2009.

Orrego-Savala fled the scene but was arrested shortly afterward. Jail records viewed by Fox News on Monday morning said Orrego-Savala, under an alias, was driving without a license.

Orrego-Savala’s blood alcohol level was 0.239 at the time of the crash — three times the legal limit — The Indianapolis Star reported, citing a probable cause affidavit.

    Is there room on the Mall in DC for a ‘wall’ to memorialize people slain by illegals?

    So when it comes down to a dead black guy versus a killer illegal alien, will the Democrats blink? Probably not. The political calculus still favors the illegal alien. Realistically, the blacks are going to remain a reliable Democrat voting block no matter how bad things get, or I should say *because* of how bad things get; it’s the hopelessness that keeps people locked into what they see as a vital lifeline. The illegal aliens, however, may or may not be in a position or have the inclination to sway the election. So as perverse as it seems, sacrificing the black guy on the illegal alien criminal altar is a double-win for the Donks. And that’s why we have a problem.
