An illegal alien accused of killing 89-year-old Sandy Bosch in a hit-and-run accident may never face charges in the United States for the woman’s death.
Jaime Mendoza-Chavez, a 42-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was arrested and charged with deadly hit-and-run in June 2019 after police said he confessed to driving the car that left Bosch dead. Mendoza-Chavez supposedly confessed to drinking two beers before getting behind the wheel, police said.
Mendoza-Chavez was released two days after his arrest thanks to Oregon’s sanctuary state law that shields criminal illegal aliens from being turned over to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by local police.
About a month after his release, Mendoza-Chavez was arrested by ICE and has been in custody since. ICE officials told local media that the illegal alien had been arrested in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1999 and told to self-deport.
Weeks ago, a federal immigration judge ordered him deported — indicating that Mendoza-Chavez may never face the deadly hit-and-run charges against him for Bosch’s death.
Mendoza-Chavez could be extradited back to the U.S. after his deportation, though previous criminal cases involving deported illegal aliens have left many Angel Families without justice.
