Again and again: Illegal immigrant charged in drunk driving crash that killed father of two

PRINCETON, NC – An illegal immigrant from Honduras has been charged after reportedly hitting another driver head-on, allegedly causing the death of the other driver.

Rolbin Pacheco, 35, was driving his vehicle in the early hours of March 29, 2021, unlicensed, intoxicated and traveling the wrong way on U.S. Highway 70 near Princeton.

Pacheco reportedly struck, head-on, a truck driven by Cheston Edwards, 36, of Kinston, NC.

Edwards was killed instantly.

According to law enforcement, Pacheco walked away from the crash uninjured.

Cheston Edwards leaves behind a girlfriend, two young children, a 9-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter, and other loved ones.

His grieving mother, Mary Edwards, told WRAL News that Edwards had been on the phone with his girlfriend at the time of the crash, and the “phone just cut off while they were talking.”

She added:

“[Cheston Edwards] loved his family, he loved me….

“He was a person that had deep love.”

Mary Edwards had the following message for Pacheco:

“He needs to know that he has hurt me.  Deeply.

“He’s taken something from me that he shouldn’t have taken from me.”

Leaning on her faith, she added:

“I love my son.  And my son loved me.

“I will see him again.  I will see him again.”

Pacheco is being held on a $1 million bond.  He is being charged with felony death by motor vehicle, DWI, reckless driving, and driving without a license.

The Johnson County Detention Center has confirmed that Pacheco is a Honduran citizen and is in this country illegally.  An ICE detainer has been placed on him.

The tragic death of Cheston Edwards at the hands of an illegal alien is a stark reminder that illegal immigration is not a victimless crime.

Sadly, other recent examples abound.

In Kansas City, for instance, illegal immigrant Ramon Vazquez-Carmona, 42, reportedly crashed into an SUV driven by Cynthia “Cindy” Goulding, who had pulled over to assist victims of another wreck.  Goulding was killed at the scene.

Goulding leaves behind a loving family and a husband of 25 years, who found it no surprise that her last act was to be a Good Samaritan.

He told Fox4 News:

“She’d most definitely do it again.”

He added:

“That’s the way she was.”

Vazquez-Carmona has been charged with “felony involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence and one count of driving without a license.”

According to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, Vasquez-Carmona is from Mexico, and he legally entered the U.S. in 2008.  However, he violated the terms of his admission and was deported, only to return illegally in 2009.

Another example of recent illegal immigrant crime comes from Hot Springs, AR, where a pair of illegal alien brothers have been charged with first degree murder after allegedly stabbing a man to death.

On March 14, brothers Gaspar Gaspar Andres, a 36-year-old illegal alien, and Pascual Gaspar Andres, a 26-year-old illegal alien, were spotted by witnesses with victim Miguel Ruiz Ruiz, 32.

The brothers fled the scene, escaping in a vehicle, and Ruiz was found stabbed, lying in a pool of his own blood.  Ruiz died at the scene.

According to Breitbart News, ICE has confirmed that the brothers are illegal aliens from Guatemala.  One has a history of traffic violations, and the other has no previous criminal history, aside from an illegal border crossing.

They were both arrested, and they are being held without bail in Garland County, AR.  Breitbart reports that they face life in prison.

Collier County, Florida, saw another vicious attack by an illegal immigrant.  Local law enforcement arrested a thrice-deported illegal alien after a stabbing incident.

On Thursday, March 4, according to NBC-2 News, Obduliu Godines, 36, kicked open a door at his rooming house and, armed with a knife, declared “I’m going to kill you” as he approached the room’s occupant.

The victim defended himself with a backpack, but Godines was able to stab him in the arm.  Godines then fled and barricaded himself in his own room, where deputies were able to take him into custody.

He was arrested for “burglary with battery and aggravated battery.”

Breitbart reports that ICE confirmed that Godines, an illegal alien from Mexico, had been “previously deported from the U.S. on September 27, 2011, October 29, 2011, and January 31, 2012.”

The above very recent examples represent only a handful of instances of crimes committed by immigrants who have already committed a crime by being in this country illegally.

As this country still awaits a visit to the border by Kamala Harris, who was appointed by Joe Biden as point person to address the border situation, crimes committed by illegal aliens sadly continue to be a reminder that illegal border-crossers are far from limited to those with purely innocent intent.

Angel families sadly know all too well the tragedies that can come at the hands of illegal immigrants.  Here is our recent report on these bereaved families and their please for the Biden administration to take illegal immigrant crimes seriously:

‘Angel families’ who had kids murdered by illegal immigrants call for Biden to enforce immigration laws

TITUSVILLE, FL – During a recent press briefing with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, alongside Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey and the parents of two people who were killed by illegal immigrants (known as “angel families”), a collective call was made for the Biden administration to enforce immigration law and to proactively deport illegal immigrants.

The press briefing was reportedly held on March 30th at the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum.

During the briefing, Governor DeSantis took the time to highlight the state of Florida’s proactiveness with regard to addressing the criminal element versus other states that have had a more lackadaisical approach:

“You’re not going to see people…dangerous people released in Florida like you’ve seen in some of these other states where they get rid of bail and they do all this stuff because public safety matters.

“One component of that is making sure people who are in the country illegally and committing crimes are held accountable.”

The Florida governor was extremely critical of the Biden administration’s handling of immigration, especially with respect to illegal immigrants convicted of crimes here stateside:

“Someone may be here illegally, they commit a felony, they get convicted they get sent to state prison. Well, their sentence runs out at some point, and the appropriate thing to do is for the federal authorities to then take custody, and then return them to their home country, and we think that that worked very well for my first two years as governor.”

It was back on February 18th when the Biden administration issued new directives to Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) in terms of the prioritization of deporting illegal immigrants, which effectively has the agency only focused on illegal immigrants who actively pose national security threats or have been convicted of serious crimes like rape and murder.

Governor DeSantis coined this administrative stance as being a sort of tacit acceptance of those illegally present in the country:

“Now though under the Biden administration, they are basically dispensing with this idea of accepting the criminal aliens, they are not honoring ICE detention detainers and they’re halting removals of even criminal aliens.

“We’ve already had in Florida, a handful of criminal aliens that had finished their sentences, and that detainers were removed by the Biden administration.”

Two parents who had lost their sons due to illegal immigrants present within the community also spoke out during the briefing.

Kiyan Michael spoke about her son who was killed in 2007 by an illegal immigrant who had already been deported from the country twice:

“They talk about the separation of children…but real separation is having to go to the cemetery and look at your child. That’s the only way you can visit them. He’ll never come home. Our children are not coming back.

“Our son, Brandon Randolph Michael, 21-years-old and we live in Jacksonville, Florida. So he’s on his lunch break going to cash his paycheck — just like every other kid, young man — engaged to be married, he had his whole life ahead of him when a twice-deported illegal crashed into our son.

“Just weeks prior, he had been stopped by our local law enforcement, they found him to be driving without a driver’s license and they just let him go. They released back into our community.”

Jamiel Shaw Sr. had also lost his 17-year-old son back in 2008, when young Jamiel Shaw Jr. was simply walking home and was gunned down by an illegal immigrant who had just gotten out of jail:

“March 2, 2008, my son was coming home from the mall…and he was murdered.

“The illegal alien that murdered him already had three gun charges, assault with a deadly weapon and he was in jail the day before he murdered my son with assault with a deadly weapon, using a gun, battery on a police officer, and resisting arrest.

“He was only given eight months in the county jail and he was released in four months. The same day he got out, he was in my neighborhood and caught my son and shot him in the head. He shot him in his stomach and while he was on the ground with his hands up in the air…he shot him in his head.”
