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:

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.
