Alcoholic Drink and Car Keys Under Spot Light | Illegal Immigrant Kills Three People in Drunken Driving Incident | Featured

An illegal immigrant was allegedly driving while drunk on Saturday morning. The person killed three members of the Thin Blue Line police motorcycle club. He also injured four people.

The Kerr County Sheriff's Office identified the driver as 28-year-old Ivan Robles Navejas. Navejas is a Mexican national illegally living in the U.S. According to Fox News, he had protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] policy. However. it expired in 2015.

A History of Drunk Driving

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents’ first encounter with Navejas was after a 2016 DUI arrest. However, due to the Obama administration's “prosecutorial discretion” rules, they allowed him to stay in the country.

“He did not meet the agency’s enforcement priorities at that time,” said an ICE official.

Navejas was then convicted of “evading and resisting arrest and was currently out on a $65,000 bond” in 2015. This happened after he allegedly beat and ran over a patron at a bar. He also reportedly bit off a portion of the victim’s ear.

“At some point along the line in his criminal history, he should have been arrested and when they found out he was here illegally he should have been in jail or not in our country,” said David Weed who is a rider in the club. “It is that simple.”

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, around 300 members of the national law enforcement motorcycle club were celebrating the group’s birthday. A group of 25 were riding on a remote stretch of highway when Navejas “crossed the median and plowed into them,” as reported by Fox News.

The three killed victims include Jerry Harbour of Houston, retired police detective Joseph Paglia of Chicago, and officer Michael White of suburban Chicago.

Navejas is facing three counts of intoxicated manslaughter with a vehicle and six counts of intoxicated assault.
