A drunk driver in Oceanside, California, pled not guilty to a hit-and-run in which she impaled 69-year-old pedestrian Jack Ray Tenhulzen on the hood of her car.
The driver, Esteysi Izazaga Sanchez, is subject to an immigration hold. She is also subject to felony charges of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI, hit-and-run, and a misdemeanor count of driving a vehicle without a license, Fox 5 News reported.
In 2016 Elizabeth English was killed as she was brutally dragged beneath a truck driven by an illegal immigrant.
Sanchez apparently drove for a half a mile with Tenhulzen’s body partially in the passenger seat, and his severed leg balanced on the hood of her car. Sanchez was ordered on a $1.5 million bail and has a preliminary hearing set for Aug. 9, according to Fox 5 News. If she is convicted, Sanchez will face 15 years and six months in state prison.
This latest tragedy comes on the heels of an effort by four Republican senators to pass “Sarah’s Law.” It would require “the federal government to take custody of anyone who entered the country illegally, violated the terms of their immigration status, or had their visa revoked and is thereafter charged with a crime resulting in the death or serious bodily injury of another person.”
This law is named after Sarah Root, a 21-year-old graduate slaughtered by a Honduran illegal alien who was drunkenly street racing in January.
Deaths of innocent Americans at the hands of impaired illegal aliens is becoming a chronic issue in states like California, where the populations are high. In 2012, Dominic Durden was struck and killed by an unlicensed illegal immigrant with two DUIs; in 2014, Brandon Mendoza was also killed by a drunk illegal immigrant; and in 2016, Elizabeth English was killed as she was brutally dragged beneath a truck driven by an illegal immigrant.
