IN Rep. Rips Weak Immigration Enforcement After Colts Player Killed by Twice-Deported Illegal

Indiana Republican Rep. Todd Rokita called for increased vigilance in protecting U.S. borders and enforcing immigration laws, in light of news that an illegal immigrant suspected of drunk driving killed two Hoosiers - including Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson – on Sunday.

"The loss of life at the hands of illegal immigrant criminals should make all Hoosiers sad and ultimately angry," Rep. Rokita said while calling for measure to prevent this type of tragedy in the future:

"We must do more to get these dangerous illegal immigrant criminals off of our streets, and guarantee this never happens again by building a wall, ending sanctuary cities, and stopping illegal immigration once and for all."

CBS-4 Indy reported that the suspected drunk driver Manuel Orrego-Savala, who has been deported on two separate occasions, is suspected of killing two people - Jeffrey Monroe and a player for the National Football League, Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson.

Rep. Rokita has been a committed ally of President Trump's efforts to end illegal immigration, build a wall, and stop sanctuary cities from harboring illegal aliens.

In December, Rokita introduced the SLAP ACT (Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians) which would establish the toughest penalties yet for sanctuary city politicians who ignore federal immigration enforcement. Congressman Rokita has been a strong supporter of Kate's Law that would defund sanctuary cities.
