    Suspect who ran over Dallas officer is in US illegally

    Suspect who ran over Dallas officer is in US illegally

    DALLAS — Senior Cpl. Ed Lujan remains hospitalized with severe injuries from his head to his toes. The veteran Dallas police officer nearly died Monday morning when he was run over outside a Dallas nightclub.

    News 8 has learned that the suspect — Eduardo Gonzalez-Rios — shouldn't have been in the U.S. He habitually dodges Border Patrol.
    "I think this is an example of why we are so concerned about securing the border," said Dallas County Republican Party chairman Wade Emmert.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to News 8 that Gonzalez-Rios has been deported three times. He was first caught in November 2004 near Harlingen, Texas. He was deported back to Mexico the same day.

    In May 2005, he was caught again near Harlingen and again deported the same day.

    Then — in September 2011 — he was apprehended in Kansas City, Missouri, and deported a few days later.

    "It's unfortunate that this had to happen to the detective," Emmert said. "It's also unfortunate that the system is so broken that it allows one to continue to come through our porous borders, and there are really no ramifications."

    In court documents obtained by WFAA, Gonzalez-Rios admitted to being in the U.S. illegally after being caught near Harlingen. "When confronted with the findings, the defendant admitted to being a citizen of Mexico and to having been born in Mexico," the document said.

    The last time Gonzalez-Rios was deported was four years ago. There is no way to tell when and where he again entered the U.S.
    "Who knows how long he has been here? Who knows how many times he has come back and forth across the border?" Emmert said.

    There is no record of Gonzalez-Rios having been arrested for a crime until Monday morning, when police said he intentionally backed up over Senior Cpl. Lujan in an attempt to flee from authorities... perhaps to avoid being deported again.

    Gonzalez-Rios was shot in the arm and is in the hospital. No bond has been set. ICE does plan to issue a hold once he is transported to the jail. But first he will stand trial in Dallas, and — if convicted — will serve prison time before he's ever deported again.

    Dallas Cop Seriously Hurt After Being Run Over Outside Nightclub


    DALLAS -- Working a second job is a reality for a lot of folks, but for cops, it can put them in even more danger after they leave their day job. Case in point, a Dallas PD officer who was rushed to Parkland Hospital early Monday morning.

    Cops say Eduardo Gonzalez-Rios was kicked out of the Kalua Discotheque for causing a disturbance. Once in the parking lot, he backed his SUV into one officer, then jumped a curb, struck Officer Ed Lujan, and ran him over.

    And get this -- DPD issued a statement saying Gonzalez-Rios "put his SUV in reverse and backed over the officer."

    According to witness accounts, other officers then opened fire on the SUV. They hit the driver, who crashed and was taken into custody.

    Lujan, a senior corporal who's been with Dallas PD for 20 years, reportedly broke multiple bones in his legs and spine, and suffered serious injuries to his neck and head. He's facing a long recovery but at last check, is in stable condition.

    Lujan, like many cops, was working an off-duty security job. The owner of the nightclub, Saul Cordona, says the incident hit close to home, "We've been knowing him well for over five years. He has a son, he has a daughter. And we hope he has a speedy recovery."
    The other officer struck wasn't hospitalized.

    The situation begs the question -- Would these officers have taken extra security jobs in the first place if they were paid better for their day jobs?
    Chief David Brown has said a lot lately that officer pay is a big problem.

    "Of course, we have low starting pay, and we've said that publicly," he told reporters back in October.

    Sunday night's events also beg another question. As bad as Officer Lujan's injuries were, how much worse could it have been if cops hadn't been on the scene to stop that reckless, dangerous driver from getting on the road with the rest of us?

    Good example of why we need to deport them all, which are good and which are bad, we have no idea. They all have to go now.

    Man jailed for running over Dallas officer was deported 3 times

    POSTED:NOV 11 2015 01:03PM CST
    UPDATED:NOV 11 2015 08:20PM CST

    The man police say ran over a Dallas officer is out of the hospital and in jail.

    Eduardo Ganzales-Rios was kicked out of a nightclub early Monday. He allegedly took off in his SUV and backed into one officer and completely ran over another.

    Other officers shot Gonzales-Rios in the arm. He’s been in the hospital until now, but was booked into the Dallas County Jail on Wednesday on charges of aggravated assault on a public servant.

    He’s also being held as an illegal immigrant. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirmed he has been deported three times in the past – in 2004, 2005 and 2011.

    Officer Edmundo Lujan remains hospitalized with fractures and a head injury.

    The president of the Dallas chapter of the National Latino Law Enforcement Organization said recently he is now up and taking small walks.
