Carlos Wolff

My husband, Carlos Wolff, was a Supervisory Special FBI Agent. Carlos was born in Venezuela and came to the United States when he was 8 years old. He joined the FBI as a special agent when he was 25, and dedicated his 11 years at the FBI to protecting America. Carlos’ life ended at 36 years old when he was hit by an illegal alien—on December 8, 2017. Carlos had been in a single vehicle accident. Deputy Chief Fire Marshall Sander Cohen had stopped behind Carlos to help him. As the two men were waiting on the shoulder for help to arrive, Roberto Garza Palacios hit and killed them both. Palacios had overstayed his visa since 2009 and was wanted by ICE in 2015 due to his numerous offense record; which included two DUI's, two counts of endangerment of life, property and person, and possession of cocaine. However, Montgomery County MD refused to hand Palacios over to ICE due to immigration laws that had changed in Maryland. Palacios was then fined $280 for hitting Carlos and Sander, and is currently out free on a $15,000 bail.

Carlos left behind his wife of twelve years, Marla, and their two young children, who were 2 and 7 years old at the time of the accident.

Considering Palacios’ record, he should have been deported in 2015 when ICE requested him from Montgomery County, MD. Our families are going through so much pain and heartache. Carlos and Sander were individuals whom were loved by many. Maryland’s sanctuary laws protect illegals over citizens. We need to see our laws changed so that others do not have to experience this unimaginable heartache.

Marla works part-time and devotes the rest of her time to raising her two young children.
