More information has emerged on just how an illegal immigrant, who killed a Nebraska woman in a drunk driving incident, was allowed to get out of jail and skip town and future punishment.
Omaha police charged illegal alien Eswin Mejia with killing 21-year-old Sarah Root while driving drunk and street-racing the night of January 31, but in short order Mejia vanished after posting a small bond, skipping out on future court dates and being held accountable for killing the young woman.
Sadly, the day before the crash, Root graduated from Bellvue University with a 4.0 GPA and a B.S. in crime investigation. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help her family as they mourn her loss.
Before he absconded, police had asked U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials to detain Mejia. ICE officials, however, decided to deny the request for an immigration detainer, saying the suspect didn’t meet their requirements for a hold.
