Donald Trump Jr. has been sounding the alarm on voices that have largely been silenced by the mainstream media and ignored by top Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): so-called “Angel Parents” – mothers, fathers and family members of those killed at the hands of illegal immigrants.
The oldest Trump son took to social media on Sunday to post a powerful clip of Angel Mother Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son was tragically killed by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Mendoza was asked by host Sean Hannity if she was pleased with President Donald Trump “holding the line” during the partial government shutdown over wall funding for the southern border.
Families who have been impacted by crimes committed by illegal aliens stormed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office on Tuesday, demanding that the California Democrat “build the wall.”
Pelosi reportedly refused to meet with the families, who have lost family members to illegal aliens, which comes as Democrats have refused to work with the Trump administration to provide national security funding to secure the southern border.
The families gathered in front of the U.S. Capitol Building with Reps. Mo Brooks (R-AL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Women for Trump, and others to “put faces to the statistics of Americans killed or injured due to illegal aliens and the drugs that flow in the U.S. at the southern border.”
After the gathering, the families went to Pelosi’s office where they chanted “build the wall.”
U.S. service members were among the people killed after a suicide blast struck near a U.S.-led coalition patrol in Syria on Wednesday, a military official said.
“U.S. service members were killed during an explosion while conducting a routine patrol in Syria today. We are still gathering information and will share additional details at a later time,” a spokesperson for Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS, wrote on Twitter without specifying the number of casualties.
The explosion, reportedly caused by a suicide bomber, hit near the main market in the northern city of Manbij, witnesses told Reuters. U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported 16 people were killed in the incident, although officials have not confirmed the number of casualties.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders earlier said in a statement: “The President has been fully briefed and we will continue to monitor the ongoing situation in Syria. For any specific questions please contact the Department of Defense.”
Tuesday, Congressman Mo Brooks (R, AL-05) supported and spoke at an “Angel Moms” news conference on the U.S. Capitol grounds on behalf of Americans who have lost family members because of illegal alien crime and America’s porous southern border.
Angel Moms and their family members shared their grief for loved ones who lost their lives at the hands of illegal aliens or because of America’s porous southern border. Participating “Angel Moms” and their family members included:
- Avery, D.J. and Wendy Corcoran – on behalf of Pierce Corcoran, who was killed in Chattanooga, Tennessee when a DUI repeat offender and drunk illegal alien collided head-on with his vehicle
- Sabine Durden – mother of Dominic Durden, who was killed when a DUI repeat offender and drunk illegal alien struck his motorcycle and drug Durden to his death while fleeing the scene of the wreck
- Maureen Laquerre – sister of Richard Grossi, who was killed by an illegal alien in 2009
- Maureen Maloney – mother of Matthew Denice, who was killed by a drunk illegal alien while riding his motorcycle
- Mary Ann Mendoza – mother of Mesa, Arizona, Police Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, who was killed in a wreck by an illegal alien who was high on meth and “triple drunk” (blood-alcohol content triple the legal limit)
Congressman Mo Brooks (R, AL-5) was joined by Congressmen Louie Gohmert (R, TX-01), Matt Gaetz (R, FL-01), Chip Roy (R, TX-21), Andy Biggs (R, AZ-05), Jody Hice (R, GA-10), and Scott Perry (R, PA-10), along with retired Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan.
