Nothing to see here. Just the sort of laudable behavior that sanctuary states and cities are striving to protect when they block immigration action against illegals for “petty crimes” like drunk driving.
An illegal immigrant, who has been removed from the United States seven times, had consumed ’12 beers and was driving at 100mph’ when he crashed his van and killed a father-of-three.
Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, who is from Mexico, was going over 100mph when he lost control of his 2001 Dodge Ram work van and crashed, killing 58-year-old Silvano Torres.
During Garcia-Velasco’s hearing, Lindberg also said the man had been removed from the US a total of seven times.
After two deportation hearings, in 2009 and 2011, Garcia-Velasco was forced out of the country and the five other times were considered ‘voluntary returns’.
Lindberg also added that Garcia-Velasco had also been convicted of having false citizenship papers prior to the crash, just a day after the Fourth of July holiday.
Just the sort of behavior that the sanctuary movement is striving to protect.
