Chicago law enforcement officials took Victor Ortiz into custody
A man who was charged with killing two Illinois women after driving under the influence of alcohol was an illegal alien, according to officials.
51-year-old Victor Ortiz was taken into custody last week by Chicago law enforcement officials after trying to flee to Guatemala for charges against him for reckless homicide, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Ortiz was reportedly drunk driving in Grayslake, Illinois, when he drove across a highway median before hitting oncoming traffic.
Oritz first hit a 42-year-old man, before hitting 56-year-old Barbara Gaulke and her friend, 64-year-old Sandra Forscht.
According to Breitbart: While Ortiz and the man sustained injuries, Gaulke and Forscht were killed instantly in the crash. On June 28, investigators revealed that Ortiz was drunk at the time of the deadly crash.
A law enforcement official confirmed to Breitbart News that Ortiz had initially entered the U.S. as an illegal alien but was eventually able to obtain a green card and then become a naturalized American citizen.

The country’s legal immigration system has various loopholes that allow illegal aliens and visa overstayers to obtain green cards.
For example, illegal alien Billy Chemirmir — accused of murdering at least 18 older adults in Texas — came to the U.S. on a tourist visa and, despite overstaying his visa, was still able to obtain a green card.
In Ortiz’s particular case, the official could not confirm which loophole was used that allowed the illegal alien to obtain naturalized citizenship.
Today, at least 400,000 illegal aliens are living in the state of Illinois, making it home to the fifth largest illegal alien population in the country after states like California, Texas, New York, and Florida.
Last month, President Donald Trump announced a major immigration crackdown, revealing plans for ICE to begin deporting “millions of illegal aliens” next week.
President Trump made the announcement late on Monday night, declaring that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin the process of removing illegal immigrants who are unlawfully present in the United States.
