Deported Man Kills Boy In Texas DUI

A five-time deported illegal immigrant has been charged with drunk driving and killing a ten-year-old boy. Rogelio Ortiz-Olivas, a 50-year-old man from Mexico, fled the scene after striking Alex “AJ” Wise, Jr in Midland, Texas while he was walking home from school.

Wise was alive but in critical condition when Ortiz-Olivas left the scene. He died later after being airlifted to a Lubbock hospital.

A balloon release was held in Wise’s memory at his Midland school on Monday. In a GoFundMe post, his family described him as “the sweetest, coolest, funniest little boy you ever would meet.” Following the arrest of Ortiz-Olivas, Wise’s mother Sykia Benson posted his mugshot on Facebook, writing: “He deserves everything he gets.”

Ortiz-Olivas was spotted and arrested when a police officer noticed a “skull-shaped” dent in the hood of his truck.

The Mexican suspect had been first ordered back home on a “voluntary departure order”, which allows migrants to leave the United States on their own without a deportation order on their record. He proceeded to re-enter the United States illegally five times and was deported each time. He was in America unlawfully for at least the seventh time when he struck and killed Wise.

The Midland Country Sheriff’s office has been participating in Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star (OLS) border security mission. The OLS program provides additional funding to local law enforcement to combat illegal immigrant-related crime. Midland is four hours from the Mexican border, and county officials have made a disaster declaration due to the border crisis. A total of 59 counties have made disaster declarations and 52 judges and commissioners have declared an invasion.

Unlike other high-profile cases in which illegals were released without bail, Ortiz-Olivas is being held in Midland County Jail on a $110,000 bond.

This is not the first time an illegal has committed crimes in the U.S. following multiple deportations. A Salvadoran illegal was first deported in 2009 but returned unlawfully five times. He killed a mother and her son in a Colorado DUI crash in December 2023. That puts this week’s Midland incident in an eerie, “Groundhog Day” context.

Americans consume news of the “border crisis” in vague terms, playing out as a drama between Texas and President Biden. However, the consequences of Biden’s wide-open borders are very real to individual families impacted. Just since October 2023, over 3,000 illegals have committed all types of violent crimes, including murder, manslaughter, theft, robbery, battery — as well as DUI and vehicular crimes such as the one that took the life of AJ Wise.

One wonders how many more victims President Biden’s revolving door policy will claim.
