Accident or Anger? At Least 8 Dead Outside Migrant Shelter

Police have charged the suspect in the deaths of eight migrants in Brownsville, TX.

George Alvarez has been identified as the alleged driver of the vehicle that plowed into a large crowd of migrants who were waiting for a bus outside the shelter.

According to some witnesses, Alvarez allegedly sped up as he approached the migrants, but he is only facing manslaughter charges, reports CBS News.

Just an Accident?

Luis Herrera, a Venezuelan immigrant, stated, “It was sudden.

“A woman drove by and told us to leave the area. We started to leave, and in a second the driver came up and was pointing at us, cursing, calling us things like, ‘Motherf—–‘ and other things I didn’t understand.

“When he drove up, he stepped on the gas. Full force. He passed over me,” reports the New York Post.

Brownsville is one of a handful of Texas cities that is being overrun by illegal immigrants under the Joe Biden administration. The city only has one homeless shelter, which is regularly packed with illegals that crossed over.

The alleged driver of the vehicle, Alvarez, was taken into custody by police.

Chief Felix Sauceda said that Alvarez ran a red light, then lost control of his vehicle, hitting a total of 18 people. That seems to be a bit of a different account than what was given by the witnesses.

Six people were pronounced dead at the scene, with another two dying at the hospital.

Sauceda stated, “Investigation also revealed that the driver of the vehicle later identified as George Alvarez … had attempted to flee the scene after impact but was held down by several individuals.”

Alvarez is now facing eight manslaughter counts and 10 counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Bail has been set at $3.6 million.

Victor Maldonado, the director of the Bishop Enrique San Pedro Ozanam Center, stated that the migrants that were killed had arrived just days earlier.
