Illegal immigrant deported six times in last three years causes AZ car accident
From Fox News:
"Officials say a 29-year-old man who caused a motor vehicle accident that nearly killed an Arizona family on Independence Day is an illegal immigrant who has been deported six times.
"Sheriff’s deputies in Maricopa, Arizona, say Manuel Perez-Vasquez was under the influence of drugs when he drove head-on in the opposing lane of traffic on a road in the town about 30 miles south of Phoenix, Fox10Phoenix reported.
"A woman and her two small children were traveling toward Perez-Vasquez when the mother noticed him driving in the wrong lane.
"The suspect faces charges of felony DUI and leaving the scene of an injury collision."
“She sees a car coming head on… so she immediately pulls over as far as she could off the side of the road and this car still comes and sideswipes [her]… totaling her car.
“Likely all [federal authorities] are going to do is send him back to Mexico and he’s likely to return again, and so this is the problem we have, and people are scratching their heads,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said.
