PORTLAND, Ore. – The woman who hit and killed two Forest Grove girls was turned over to immigration officials Monday, according to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, 19, was found guilty of the hit-and-run incident that killed 6-year-old Anna Deiter-Eckerdt and her 11-year-old sister Abigail Robinson, last October. The two girls were playing in a pile of leaves when they were hit by the car Garcia-Cisneros was driving. Garcia-Cisneros then left the scene.

A judge sentenced her to three years of probation last week.

On Monday, Garcia-Cisneros was turned over to ICE and will be held at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Wash.

She's in the country illegally and a judge will decide if Garcia-Cisneros will be deported.

“The immigration judge will determine whether or not Ms. Garcia-Cisneros remains in detention for the duration of her immigration case,” said Andrew S. Munoz, spokesman for ICE.
