The suspect who was arrested  for allegedly killing Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson in a DUI incident on Sunday is a Guatemalan national wanted by the Homeland Security Department’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) authorities for deportation, according to the Indiana State Police. Also killed in the crash was Jackson’s friend, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe of Avon, Indiana.

Sgt. John Perrine of the Indiana State Police said. “[The suspect] was transported to the Marion County Jail, the result of the test for intoxication is pending.”

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.

An Indiana congressman said Monday that the traffic death of a popular player for the Indianapolis Colts football team, apparently at the hands of an illegal immigrant, should spur Congress to approve President Trump’s border wall and other enforcement measures.

“The loss of life at the hands of illegal immigrant criminals should make all Hoosiers sad and ultimately angry,” said Republican Rep. Todd Rokita. “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.”
