President-elect Donald Trump promised to crack down on illegal immigration if he was elected. That became reality over a month ago in his stunning defeat of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Now Trump has his work cut out for him and an endless flow of horror stories including Wednesday’s news out of Louisville, Kentucky. After being deported eight times from the United States back to Mexico, an illegal alien killed multiple victims in a hit-and-run accident.
According to a press release issued by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Wednesday, the illegal alien was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal hit-and-run accident. Soon afterward, another charge of illegal entry after deportation was added against him.
These sorts of stories are nothing new across the country. In this case, Miguel Angel Villasenor-Saucedo had been facing deportation for the ninth time when he killed two women in a car accident. The 40-year-old Mexican national allegedly drove the truck that fatally injured both women.
Villasenor-Saucedo fled the scene of the accident without checking the victims that lay dying in the street. Rather he fled the scene before police arrived. In addition to the hit-and-run charge, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Villasenor-Saucedo, who resided in Louisville, Kentucky, at the time of the crash.
Suddenly, after eight deportations of the same individual, police are actively seeking him as a result of the crash, state officials reported. TheBlaze reported that “After the warrant was issued, authorities were alerted that Villasenor-Saucedo was a Mexican national living in the United States.” Meanwhile, two immigrants legally in the country from Cuba are dead because of this man.
Amazingly, it was not until after the accident that many government officials realized that Villasenor-Saucedo had already been deported numerous times. “Immigration and Customs Enforcement began investigating him and discovered that he had been deported a whopping eight times already, and he was again residing in the United States illegally,” TheBlaze’s Sara Gonzales reported.
ICE and Louisville Metropolitan Police Department carried out the investigation. The crash happened in the Outer Loop at Grade Lane. One of the two women killed was identified as 49-year-old Migidalia Morell-Manso. The LMPD traffic unit advised that the two women were involved in an accident and were standing next to their car when the truck driven by Villasenor-Saucedo hit them and then drove off.
How Villasenor-Saucedo was able to evade border agents multiple times is a mystery. “It is unclear how he repeatedly made his way across the border,” the report added. “If captured by federal agents, he will face a maximum of no more than two years in prison,” Gonzales informed.
The number of illegal aliens living in America over the past several years has remained relatively constant. Under the incoming Trump administration, the numbers are expected to drastically decline as more border agents are provided and Trump makes good on his promise to build a wall on the southern border.
Trump will also have to deal with the many large American cities with “sanctuary city status.” That being urban areas that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities concerning undocumented aliens in their jurisdiction. The incoming president has vowed to end the practice which will take time and money to resolve.
