An Indiana prosecutor criticized President Trump for his comments Tuesday after police said the man accused of killing an Indianapolis Colts linebacker in a suspected drunk-driving accident was an undocumented immigrant.
Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said in a statement that comments politicizing the fatal crash were "ghoulish and inappropriate," The Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
Curry said that his office would "vigorously prosecute" the case, according to the AP.
We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy, Curry, a Democrat, said. Much of such commentary, including tweets by the president, fails to acknowledge that both Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe lost their lives on Sunday. We will simply seek justice on behalf of the families of those two victims.
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed on Sunday when a Ford-150 struck him and another man on the side of a highway in Indianapolis.
Indiana state police identified the suspect as Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemala citizen who is in the U.S. illegally.
Orrego-Savala had been deported twice from the U.S.
President Trump on Tuesday tweeted that it was "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!" Trump tweeted.
Curry filed felony charges Wednesday against Orrego-Savala. He is being charged with two counts of causing death while driving intoxicated and of leaving the scene of an accident, according to the AP.
The truth hurts the Democrat agenda.
Gee the left has NO problem blaming ALL gun owners the second a shooting happens at a mall, school, etc..then its A OK to politicize it and call to end all gun rights..but when an illegal alien who should NEVER have been in this country, drives drunk and kills a football player, hey don’t politicize it
Things are changing. The judge is going to find that out soon enough.
Illegal kills kneeler hating America...
Is the prosecutor accusing God and not Trump for karma?
Liberals are demon possessed.
I’m betting Indianapolis, where this jag-off is based, is a sanctuary city and he is a DemonRAT. Now what do I win?
This next election needs to be about the hypocrisy of the left. It is so apparent at every juncture of society and media.

The prosecutor is a grandstanding Democrat and an idiot. Obviously.
Who does he think he is? Chuck Schumer?
When guns are illegal inly the illegals will have guns...
Still no statement from the Colts or from the NFL.
Well, Indy is not a sanctuary city, Terry Curry is not a jag-off but he is a democrat. So, you are wrong on two out of three. In fact, although he a democrat, Terry Curry is not that political except when he's running for election. And every politician is political then. He a pretty good guy and he runs his office pretty well.
Curry, a Democrat, said.
Putting his party’s agenda of importing voters above the safety of the citizens.
Plenty who wear R jerseys that are the same way.
Indy is a sanctuary city in all but word and was also the city that directly said they would not enforce RFRA even if it was law and then ran a diversity propaganda campaign.
So youre 0 for 0
Support Free Republic, Folks!
I am getting so sick of judges. The majority probably deserve to be prosecuted themselves.
Has anyone explained why they were standing outside the car in the middle of the night?
“Curry, a Democrat”
And therefore a moral leper who should be scorned. Who cares what filth this reprobate spews?
A number of years ago in Chicago, a little girl and her grandmother got caught in a gang crossfire. The little girl was killed. Witnesses identified the gang leader as a black man with a foreign accent. Police interviewed afterwards said they knew who he was. He was here illegally from Africa and had been arrested previously 24 times. I think mentioning his status was appropriate.
Democrat bastard— GO TO HELL!! ILLEGAL ALIENS KILLED A MAN!!THEY SHOULDN’T BE HERE!!
How is Indy a sanctuary city in all but word and who supposedly said they would not enforce RFRA (as if it were a criminal law to be enforced). You don't have a clue what you are talking about. And you certainly don't know the first thing about Terry Curry
