An illegal immigrant, Karmit Singh, who killed a child in a drunk driving incident, was released from prison after three years and subsequently arrested for two separate DUIs in different counties.

Despite being an illegal immigrant with a history of DUIs and a manslaughter conviction, he was released on bail each time.

The case highlights the debate surrounding deportation of illegal immigrants for drunk driving offenses.

Singh’s actions have sparked criticism, with the victim’s family expressing disappointment at the lack of deportation and advocating for stricter laws.

Tulare County Assistant District Attorney Kirk Davis said, “As he was out of custody, our office had time under the statute of limitations to review the case and file charges.”

Davis added that an “inquiry to Homeland Security is necessary for the immigration status and why they did or did not act on any holds when he was in custody of the Sheriff.”

ICE spokeswoman Denise Hauser said, “We will not be releasing any information on this individual at this time.”

The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted on a bill related to deporting aliens convicted of driving while intoxicated or impaired, with 150 Democrats voting against it.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib said, the bill “would mean that our immigrant neighbors who came here lawfully and who have resided in our communities for decades could be deported and ripped from their families due to one misdemeanor DUI conviction, creating a separate and unequal system of justice.”

Scott Martzen, the father of Maverick Martzen, said, “Our family has been beyond devastated since being made aware that Mr. Singh has not only been arrested once again, but twice, for the same crime that resulted in the death of our son and lifelong injuries for my wife and I.”

“We hoped that he would truly change his behavior. We also had hoped, that once he was released from prison, that he would be deported back to his country. To our disappointment neither things have happened. His additional DUIs have felt like salt being added to our wounds,” continued Mortzen.

“We pray we can find lawmakers who want to join us in our quest to make harsher laws that will give future victims the justice they deserve. My wife and I will continue to honor Maverick in our daily life and do our best to speak out against soft punishment so others don’t have to experience our same devastation,” he concluded.
