    On Saturday, police in Denver arrested Juventino Hernandez-Vazquez, 36, after he crashed head-on into another vehicle, killing one person and critically injuring two others.

    The wreck occurred around 4:30 a.m. on South Federal Boulevard, according to police.

    Police have not released the name of the deceased at this time.
    Hernandez-Vazquez has been charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular assault, and is being held without bail.

    This is not Hernandez-Vazquez's first run-in with the law...
    ABC News 7 reported:

    According to public court records examined by 7NEWS,Hernandez-Vazquez has had other aliases, and had a previous DUI in 2001, a DUI hit-and-run crash in 2005 in Denver and then an assault and resisting arrest charge in Denver in 2009.
    Of course, Denver has been a 'sanctuary city' for many years, as such, illegal aliens are rarely reported to federal authorities.

    In 1998, then-Mayor Wellington Webb issued Executive Order 116, which among other things ordered city officials to "vigorously preserve the legal rights of all of its residents." And, decried the deportation of illegal aliens by the federal government.

    Sometime afterward, the Denver Police Police Manual was changed to read:

    Generally, officers will not detain, arrest, or take enforcement action against a person solely because he/she is suspected of being an undocumented immigrant. If enforcement action is deemed necessary under these circumstances, the approval of an on duty supervisor or commander is required.
    The charge "Hold For Immigration" will be lodged against a prisoner only when a warrant has been issued by the U.S. Department of Justice, or an agency thereof, and then only when the warrant is on an immigration matter.
    Though 'sanctuary cities' were banned by the Colorado legislature in 2006, the legislation has had little practical effect on ending the protections extended to illegal aliens in Denver.

    One of those who became a victim of that city's sanctuary policy, was 43-year-old Denver Police Det. Donald Young.

    On May 8, 2005, Det. Young was working at an event hall when he was shot to death in an unprovoked attack by Raul Garcia-Gomez.

    The Mexican national had already been arrested three times when he murdered Det. Young, but because of Denver’s 'sanctuary policy' he was never reported to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Garcia-Gomez actually worked at a restaurant owned by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who has been a longtime champion of sanctuary policies and amnesty legislation.

    Young left behind a wife and three children.
