(National Sentinel) Senseless: A budding young linebacker for the Indianapolis Colts and his Uber driver were both allegedly mowed down and killed by an illegal alien who had been deported from the country twice.

According to various reports, the driver of the car, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, and his passenger, 26-year-old Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson, were both killed. Police arrested a man who identified himself as Alex Cabrera Gonsales, a 37-year-old Mexican national after he allegedly crashed his black Ford F-150 into a car parked along Interstate 70 near Indianapolis.

Reports further noted that in reality, the suspect’s name is Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala. Records show he was deported once in 2007 and again in 2009. It’s unclear how long he’s been in the country this time.

Authorities believe Monroe was a rideshare operator who picked up Jackson and was taking him home. Monroe apparently pulled his car over to the shoulder to assist Jackson who had become ill.

Both were killed shortly thereafter when Savala allegedly smashed into their vehicle with his pickup truck.

The impact threw one of the victims into the center lane of the highway where he was later struck by another vehicle. The coroner’s office pronounced both victims dead at the scene of the crash.

Savala fled the scene on foot after the crash. Police spotted him a short while later on an interstate off-ramp and arrested him.

Jackson, nicknamed “Pound Cake,” recently completed his second season with the Colts. His death and the death Monroe come as Congress races to beat a March 5 deadline to pass legislation regarding so-called “Dreamers” brought into the U.S. illegally by their parents as children.

Trump is considering allowing them to stay but wants tougher border security including funding for his long-sought border wall, an end to chain migration, and changes to the visa lottery system — all of which Democrats and some Republicans oppose.
