Texas car crash: After a tragic collision at a migrant shelter in Brownsville, the driver, George Alvarez, was charged.
Journalists questioned Mr. Sauceda about whether police had ruled out Mr. Alvarez’s deliberate role in the collision.
At the time of the press conference, according to Mr. Sauceda, the police were still conducting their investigation and had not ruled anything out. According to earlier accounts, Mr. Alvarez was “very uncooperative” with the investigation.
Weeks prior to the incident, thousands of migrants, largely from Venezuela, gathered in the city, causing a state of emergency.
There were no threats of violence made against the migrant facility where the collision took place, according to Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley.
