Jackson and 54-year-old-old Jeffrey Monroe of Avon, Indiana, were killed Sunday when authorities say they were struck by 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis.
"We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy", said Curry, a Democrat.
Both men were pronounced dead at the scene by the Marion County coroner's office. "We will simply seek justice on behalf of the families of those two victims".
US President Donald Trump has used the death of an NFL footballer allegedly at the hands of an illegal immigrant to ramp up pressure on the Democrats to support his border policies.
Orrego-Savala is charged with two counts each of causing death while driving intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident.
A little more than two years later, in March 2009, he was again arrested in San Francisco and then deported that May. He appeared in court Wednesday for an initial hearing.
Authorities say Orrego-Savala was deported from the U.S.in 2007 and 2009, and he was again living illegally in the US, in Indianapolis.
Federal prosecutors spell his name as Orrego-Zavala, but the federal criminal compliant lists "Orrego-Savala" as among his aliases, according to the Associated Press.
He was prohibited from returning to the United States for 10 years, according to federal officials. And while it's tragic, we can really do something here because just by following the law, would be completely preventable and surely by building a wall we can add extra security so that this kind of stuff doesn't happen by illegal immigrant criminals. Torres declined to comment on Trump's tweets.
"He's very distraught to say the least", Torres said. Mr. Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. "We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this hard time". Jeffrey Monroe, an Uber driver, and 26-year-old Edwin Jackson, who played for the Indianapolis Colts, died in the collision. Orrego-Savala has been deported twice, according to IN state police.
Orrego-Savala had a 2005 conviction for driving under the influence in Redwood City, California. ICE said it has placed an immigration detainer on Orrego-Savala at the Marion County Jail.
Investigators said they believe Orrego-Savala was intoxicated at the time of the IN crash.
The alleged drunken driver in a crash that and another man is now facing a charge in federal court. Prosecutors also said the sample would confirm his identity, noting his various aliases.
Orrego-Savala's only responses in court were answering through an interpreter as the judge explained the proceedings and charges. Jackson and Monroe were standing outside the driver's auto before being hit by a pickup truck, according to police.
