An illegal alien was caught drinking and driving a few weeks ago in Texas a few weeks ago. He was simply released back into society rather than deported.
Obama’s backdoor amnesty plan directly contributed to this slaughter! The police tried to give him to ICE, but ICE said he hasn’t broken enough laws yet. Months ago Obama issued “guidelines” calling for a halt to deportations except in the case of major criminals. Obama has made it clear that he believes open borders will keep the radical left in power by stacking the electorate.
A man charged with four counts of intoxication manslaughter is an illegal alien who only a few weeks ago was arrested on another alcohol-related charge, officials say.
Roberto Castillo, 19, remained in the Washington County jail this morning under $2 million bond after authorities say he slammed into another vehicle at the intersection of Highway 36 South and FM 109 about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
Authorities said Castillo’s pickup truck struck a 1998 Mustang carrying four people, who all died from injuries they suffered in the crash. Their identities had not yet been released this morning.
Authorities were carefully piecing together information, including reconstruction of the accident.
“There’s a lot of questions we need answers to,” said District Attorney Bill Parham. “This will be done thoroughly.”
Police Chief Rex Phelps called the accident a tragedy.
“It’s always tough to deal with this type of accident,” Phelps said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families.”
According to reports, Castillo was arrested July 30 after an off-duty Washington County deputy reported he was driving erratically.
Castillo was subsequently arrested by a Brenham police officer and charged with driving under the influence by a minor, a Class C misdemeanor.
He was released after posting bail.
Chief Deputy Mike Herzog said it’s doubtful that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents were contacted about Castillo’s arrest and illegal alien status.
“At that time, ICE was only taking Class B and above (offenders),” Herzog said. “This was a Class C misdemeanor.”
