WATCH: Victims of Illegal Alien Crime Speak Out in Nation’s Capitol

Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC) are holding a news conference now with sheriffs from across the country at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

The group is urging the Trump administration and Congress “to put the safety of the American public first by prioritizing immigration enforcement in all ongoing legislative discussions.”

On Sunday an NFL football player was killed after a drunk and previously-deported illegal alien struck him and another man with his car.

Breitbart News reported:

Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson and his driver were allegedly killed by a drunk driving, previously deported illegal alien Sunday morning near Indianapolis. The suspect fled the scene on foot after crashing into their vehicle. Indiana State Police officers arrested the reported driver later that morning.

Police arrested a man who identified himself as Alex Cabrera Gonsales, a 37-year-old Mexican national, after he allegedly crashed his black Ford F-150 into a car parked along Interstate 70 near Indianapolis, according to a statement obtained from the Indiana State Police. The driver of the car, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, and his passenger, 26-year-old Indianapolis Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson, were both killed in the crash.

The AVIAC website states:

As parents and family of loved ones killed or negatively impacted by illegal alien crime, our goal is to promote American’s safety and security in legislation and public policy.

AVIAC seeks to educate the public on the statistics and impact that illegal immigration has on American lives, our country’s safety and the financial burden it is costing each and every American.

We will work with politicians to ensure our current immigration laws are enforced and any new legislation will have the consideration of our first-hand testimony to ensure the American public will be protected.
