On December 15, 2023, the Broomfield Police Department arrested 37-year-old Jose Guadalupe Menjivar-Alas about a deadly collision that had occurred on Main Street and Miramonte Boulevard three days earlier.

Melissa Powell, 47, was driving the Mazda CX-5 when Menjivar-Alas’ Toyota Tundra collided with it. Powell and Riordan, his son, perished in the collision while riding in the Mazda.

Detectives concluded after the crash investigation that alcohol and speed were factors in the collision.

Following the collision, Menjivar-Alas was taken to a nearby hospital. After being checked out, he was charged with reckless driving-related vehicular homicide, DUI-related vehicular homicide, and chronic traffic offender vehicular homicide. He was then put into the Broomfield County Jail.

Fox News Digital was informed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that MenjivarAlas, an El Salvadorian national, has been removed from the United States four times.

“ICE records show that the subject has been previously removed and has no regard for immigration law,” an ICE spokesman said.

Menjivar-Alas was found guilty of driving while intoxicated (DWI) on August 4, 2007, and again on December 7, 2016, and May 7, 2019. On September 16, 2007, he was also found guilty of driving after intoxication.

On April 14, 2009, Menjivar-Alas’s first order of removal was issued by an immigration judge.

Then, in June 2009, June 2013, November 2014, and January 2015, he was expelled from the United States.

Menjivar-Alas was deported, but he persisted in entering the nation, where he was apprehended multiple times and was now accused of killing a woman and her son.

ICE reports that on December 18, 2023, the Denver field office filed an immigration detainer with Broomfield County.

“As part of its routine operations, ICE targets and arrests noncitizens who commit crimes and other individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws,” ICE said. “All noncitizens in violation of U.S. immigration law may be subject to arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removed from the United States, regardless of nationality.”
