NFL Player Killed by Twice-Deported Illegal Immigrant

Manuel Orrego-Savala and Edwin Jackson

(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) The twice-deported Guatemalan citizen who hit and killed an NFL player on Feb. 4 will face federal immigration charges for re-entering the U.S. after being deported, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced last week.

Manuel Orrego-Zavala, 37, fled the scene after the accident and upon arrest he provided authorities with a fake name.

Orrego-Zavala struck NFL linebacker Edwin Jackson, who played for the Indianapolis Colts, and Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe in Indianapolis.

The charges announced by ICE are in addition to the likely pending charges related to the two deaths.

CNN also reported that “Orrego-Savala was charged with two counts each of felony failure to remain at the scene of an accident and causing death when operating a motor vehicle with an alcohol concentration equivalent of .15 or more, according to court documents.”

The crash occurred along Interstate Highway 70.


President Donald Trump tweeted after the crash:

In Oct. 2006, Enforcement and Removal Operations arrested Orrego-Zavala and deported him in Jan. 2007.

At the time of deportation, he was prevented from legally reentering the U.S. for 10 years.

He illegally entered the U.S. again in March 2009, was deported in May 2009, and ordered not to legally return to the U.S. for 20 years.

    Well, nothing of any consequence happened the first two times, so he just figured nothing would happen this time. He was correct. Just deported again with a longer return time. Ha! He doesn’t care about that time limit any way.

    Deported. He needs time I. One of our prisons. What he will do is then around, come back under another name.
    In prison he may very well never get a chance to ever walk free again
