HOUSTON – Currently, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE, has placed a Houston man on a hold who, according to police, let his 12-year-old daughter drive his vehicle.
This is due to the child behind the wheel of the SUV resulted in the death of a man and his dog while out on a walk last week.
According to ICE, holds are placed on those who “arrested on criminal charges for whom ICE possesses probable cause to believe that they are removable from the United States.”
This type of detainment typically requires jails to notify immigration officials before a person is released to allow ICE agents to launch deportation proceedings.
Tomas Mejia Tol was apparently charged with negligent homicide and endangering a child in the death of Enrique Vazquez, age 46.
According to prosecutors, Tol allegedly let his 12-year-old daughter drive his Ford Explorer in an apartment complex parking lot on Friday, August 16th, at the same time Vazquez was walking his dog.
