On Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts informed fans that linebacker Edwin Jackson had died. The professional football player was killed in a car accident. The driver who caused the accident was, it was later reported, driving while intoxicated:
It is with a heavy heart that we share the loss of one of our own.
Edwin Jackson always brought a smile to our locker room and the community. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

But that’s not all there is to this story. The Washington Times reports that Alex Cabrera Gonsales, 37, was wanted for deportation:
Mr. Cabrera Gonsales didn’t have a driver’s license, tried to flee the scene of the accident and had a blood-alcohol level of at least .15 (nearly twice the legal limit), authorities said.
The booking document, which specifies that Mr. Cabrera Gonsales has a detainer request on him, does not say whether was in the U.S. illegally or as a legal permanent resident who can still be deported for a serious crime.
No word yet from our open borders friends about this matter.
Shocking, I know.
