Indianapolis Colts’ Edwin Jackson ‘killed by illegal immigrant’

Jackson was signed by the Colts in January 2016.

An NFL star’s death by an alleged drunk-driver has sparked a political row after it emerged the suspect was in the US illegally.

Indiana police say the driver who killed NFL player Edwin Jackson was a Guatemalan who had been deported twice.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, was allegedly drunk when he crashed his vehicle into Jackson, 26, and an Uber driver standing by the roadside, killing both.

President Donald Trump tweeted his death was a preventable tragedy.

He has long linked violent crime to illegal immigration, and provoked a stand-off with city mayors who have vowed to resist orders to hand over undocumented residents to federal authorities.
