Prominent Democrat Advisor Killed in Crash With Illegal Alien in Nevada
Washoe County Jail

A suspect arrested for killing a Democrat operative in a hit-and-run crash this month in Nevada is an illegal alien from Honduras who was released into the U.S. by the Biden administration, according to reports.

Kurt Englehart, a senior advisor to Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), died in a two-vehicle wreck on April 6 in Reno.

“The occupants who fled the scene were later located by police, and the driver arrested,” authorities explained in news release hours later.

“Impairment does appear to be a factor in this crash.”

Elmer Rueda-Linares, 18, was arrested and initially charged with felony hit-and-run but that charge has been changed to failing to stop at the scene of an accident, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.

On Tuesday, the Gazette Journal reported that an immigration detainer was lodged against Rueda-Linares by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on April 8.

“Rueda entered the United States March 12, 2021, at or near the Rio Grande City, Texas, Port of Entry without inspection by an immigration official,” the Department of Homeland Security told the New York Post in a statement.

“United States Customs and Border Protection arrested him, and he was later released on his own recognizance June 22, 2021.”

Incredibly, just two days prior to the date Rueda entered the U.S., Sen. Masto emphatically declared there were “no open borders” during an interview on MSNBC, according to Nevada political activist Courtney Holland.

Englehart, a 38-year-old father of one, had worked for Masto for eight years at the time of his passing.

Rueda-Linares is currently being held in Washoe County Jail on $100,000 bail.

An investigation is ongoing.
