Anyone who knows anything about me knows I have no regard for Donald Trump. Not as president. Not as a businessman. Not as a human being.

However, there may be one subject where Trump isn't totally full of what a cow pasture is.
An unlicensed illegal immigrant was “grossly impaired” when he crashed into an ambulance and killed a 3-year-old boy, court papers say.


The boy, from Wise, Va., died Monday, a day after the crash. He was with his mother in the ambulance when it was struck and rolled over in Winston-Salem, N.C. Lyndsay Ann Oakes, 27, suffered minor injuries. The boy was not identified.


Jose Duran Romero, 27, blew a 0.19 on a breathalyzer nearly two hours after the crash, more than twice the legal limit, FOX8 Winston-Salem reported late Monday.


Court papers say Romero, who was behind the wheel of a Honda Accord even though he had never owned a driver’s license, had “bloodshot, glassy eyes,” slurred his speech and looked “grossly impaired,” according to the station.


Romero was also in the country illegally, the station reported.


Federal authorities lodged an immigration detainer against him after his arrest. They said he was from El Salvador.


The ambulance was taking the boy and his mother to a trauma center.


Gary Oakes said Monday his grandson had been under medical care before the crash but didn't want to elaborate. Asked how the family was coping, Oakes said, "It's devastating."

This follows another recent drunk driver illegal alien accident which killed an NFL player
.

(CNN)Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man were struck and killed in a suspected drunken driving accident early Sunday morning.

Indiana State Police say the man they believe hit them is an undocumented immigrant who has been deported twice.

The accident took place around 4 a.m. Sunday. Authorities said Jackson was the passenger for a ride-sharing operator, identified as 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe of Avon, Indiana. Monroe had pulled his 2018 Lincoln to the side of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis because Jackson had become ill, according to state police, who said both men were standing outside the car.

The car and the men were struck by a Ford F-150. One of the men was thrown into the center lane and was spotted, along with wreckage from the damaged vehicle, by a passing state trooper. As he slowed to stop for the crash, he struck the body in the center lane, officials said.

Police identified the driver of the F-150 as Manuel Orrego-Savala. Police said he gave them an alias at the scene -- Alex Cabrera Gonsales -- and attempted to flee on foot. He was taken to the Marion County Jail, accused of driving without a license and on suspicion of intoxicated driving.

Detectives said Orrego-Savala is a citizen of Guatemala who is in the United States illegally and was deported twice, in 2007 and 2009. They're working with US immigration officials, who have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement released a statement late Monday saying Orrego-Savala was previously convicted of driving under the influence in Redwood City, California, in 2005. He has other "misdemeanor criminal convictions and arrests in California and Indiana," the ICE statement said.
As you probably guessed it didn't take long before the Racial-Arsonist-In-Chief to seize upon Jackson's death at the intoxicated hands of an illegal alien.

So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!

Which earned Trump a rebuke from the prosecutor's office.


(CNN)President Donald Trump was "ghoulish and inappropriate" in politicizing a fatal drunken driving crash involving an undocumented immigrant, the Indiana prosecutor overseeing the case said.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry filed four felony charges Wednesday against Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemalan citizen who had been deported from the US twice, for allegedly drunkenly operating a vehicle and killing NFL linebacker Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe in Indiana early Sunday morning.

In announcing those charges, Curry criticized Trump and others for focusing on Orrego-Savala's immigration status rather than the tragedy of two lost lives.

"We will vigorously prosecute this matter, just like any comparable crime, not because of the immigration status of an accused, but because two innocent men lost their lives in this horrible incident," Curry, a Democrat, said in a statement.

"We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy. Much of such commentary, including tweets by the President, fails to acknowledge that both Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe lost their lives on Sunday," he added. "We will simply seek justice on behalf of the families of those two victims."
It's obvious Trump cares nothing about Edwin Jackson other than the fact as an NFL player he has a higher profile than an ordinary citizen and exploiting the criminal acts of a few illegal immigrants as if it is a dire threat to the very lives of American citizens is straight from his well-thumbed xenophobia playbook.

That's not to say though there isn't a natural and instinctual disgust people have for drunk drivers killing innocents. Throw in the fact that Orrego-Savala and Romero shouldn't have been in the country at all, and its a reminder how Trump succeeds by appealing to emotion while progressives flail and fail by appealing to reason.

These stories resonate with the man and woman in the street in ways stories about the environment, racial grievance, gender equality and other weightier matter do not. It's why liberals win debates and conservatives win elections.
