Denver’s ‘Sanctuary Policy’ Set Habitual Drunk Driver Free…Now He Has Killed Someone

DENVER, CO (The Denver Post) – The man accused of killing a young Denver lawyer in an October hit-and-run collision had been deported in 2007 only to return illegally to the U.S., where he was arrested twice before the deadly crash, authorities say.

Norlan Estrada-Reyes, 27, who was born in Sulaco, Honduras, had twice been accused of crimes in Denver, including driving under the influence. After a 2013 arrest, he posted bond and was released before U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reached him. In the other case, in 2014, ICE was not aware of his arrest.

Then, on Oct. 30, police say he was behind the wheel of a full-size Ford pickup truck that struck and killed 28-year-old Karina Pulec as she was crossing the street at East 13th Avenue and Broadway, dragging her 50 feet.

Pulec died at the scene. The pickup was found less than a mile away, unoccupied though still in drive.

Estrada-Reyes’ case is the second in the past four months in which a person in the country illegally, who had previous run-ins with police, has been accused in a Denver killing. They feed into the national debate about immigration that heated up Tuesday with the release of documents showing plans by President Donald Trump’s administration to widely expand the number of people who are considered a priority for deportation.

The Homeland Security Department memos — a sweeping rewrite of the nation’s immigration enforcement priorities — explain that any immigrant living in the United States illegally who is a suspect in a crime or has been charged or convicted will be an enforcement priority. That could include people arrested for shoplifting or minor traffic offenses.

  1. Those authorities who let this illegal alien loose should be locked up. Prosecute them as obstruction of justice or as accessories to manslaughter….. This will go on until they lock up Gov. Like Malloy of CT or Denver authorities and PLUNK them in jail…. We should not pay like euro and Nordic women are suffering at the hands of criminal aliens . Lock them up…… Shame on alleged clergy like Bergolio alleged Pope Francis and sorry excuses for SD Cal Bishop. Enough already with excuses for clergy and politicians coddling dangerous immigrants .Period

  2. I agree 100% with Ed of CT and it goes all the way up to Obama. Obama did everything he could to promote illegal alien crime, and he is still at it. Obama has never been an authentic American, so little wonder we have so many outright enemies in our midst.. Arrest, convict and sentence Obama for immigration crime and treason.
