Sheriff’s deputy Alexis Hein-Nutz — accused of killing a 24-year-old illegal alien in Weld County, Colorado — — just a week before her 25th birthday — has a criminal record, but federal agents have failed to deport him.

As Housekaart News reports, illegal alien Norberto Garcia-Gonzales, 36, has been arrested and charged with killing Hein on September 18 in a hit-and-run DUI accident a week before her 25th birthday -Nutz.

Garcia-Gonzales reportedly carried a fake green card and a fake Social Security card, which he likely used to fraudulently get a job in Colorado.

New details of the case show Garcia-Gonzalez has a criminal record, but the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has repeatedly failed to deport him from the United States.

In particular, Garcia-Gonzalez was arrested in March 2007 across the US-Mexico border in Arizona. At the time, he was asked to voluntarily return to Mexico.

At an unknown later date, Garcia-Gonzalez again crossed the southern border illegally and settled in Colorado, where he was arrested for DUI in 2011. A year later, he was convicted of DUI.

In 2013, Garcia-Gonzalez was again convicted of DUI and hit-and-run charges. However, the Department of Homeland Security never appears to have deported Garcia-Gonzalez, who remains in Colorado and is now charged with killing Hein-Nutz.

Hein-Nutz joined the Weld County Sheriff’s Office in 2018 as a detention agent for the county jail and said in a Facebook post at the time that law enforcement was “what I should have done.”

Garcia-Gonzales is currently being held in Weld County on $500,000 bail. He was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash and reckless driving causing death.
