10-Year-Old Boy Allegedly Murdered By Illegal Alien Previously Deported 5 Times

(WatchDogReport.org) – A 50-year-old illegal immigrant was accused on February 15 of killing a 10-year-old boy in a hit-and-run crash in Midland, Texas. The illegal alien, who had already been deported back to Mexico on five occasions in the past, killed the child while he was walking home from school.

According to reports, Rogelio Ortiz-Olivas was arrested and charged with causing a fatal hit-and-run accident and drunk driving, which took the life of Alex Wise Jr. Midland is nearly four hours away from the United States-Mexico border, which is currently facing one of its biggest crisis in decades, with thousands of illegal aliens entering the country every day.

In a statement, the Midland Police Department said on February 8 that the Mexican national was driving his truck when he suddenly hit the 10-year-old boy. The police explained that right after the crash, Ortiz-Olivas decided to flee the scene and left Wise in critical condition.

Witnesses called 911 immediately. However, while the youth was airlifted to a health center in the Texan city of Lubbock, he died the following day from his severe injuries. In a separate statement, the 10-year-old boy was an IDEA Travis student and a person whom his family and friends say was sweet and funny. The family also created a GoFundMe page for Wise and held a memorial fundraiser for him on February 17.

As reported by CBS7 News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said that the 50-year-old Mexican national was first sent back to his home country after illegally crossing the US-Mexico border. Ortiz-Olivas, who was deported on a voluntary departure order, is currently detained in jail under an ICE hold.

While ICE agents have deported Ortiz-Olivas on five occasions since the first voluntary departure, he has managed to enter the nation repeatedly, which experts believe shows the lack of control at the southern border. The 50-year-old Mexican national remains in custody of the Midland Police Department on a $110,000 bail.
