Angel Mom Blasts Dems' 'Separation Crisis,' Says Real Separation 'Is A Coffin And Six Feet Of Dirt'


The media spent all week wringing their hands about the “separation crisis,” their term for the fact that the Trump administration had the gall to jail illegal immigrants who brought their children along with them for committing a crime, thusly separating them from their children (you know, like what would happen to any other American who committed a crime).

Meanwhile, on Friday, the Trump administration held an event for “angel families” — families who, as the White House said, were the “American victims of illegal immigration.” These individuals had lost family members to illegal aliens who committed crimes, according to the Washington Times.

“These are the American citizens permanently separated from their loved ones,” President Trump said at the White House event. “These are the families the media ignores. These are the stories that Democrats and people that are weak on immigration don’t want to discuss.”

“They’re not separated for a day, or two days,” the president added. “They’re permanently separated, because they were killed by criminal illegal aliens.”

After their appearance at the White House, angel mothers Agnes Gibboney, Mary Ann Mendoza and Laura Wilkerson appeared on Fox News. When Mendoza was asked about how she felt about being “ignored” by the media, she had a very sobering answer.

“More than the feeling of being ignored is the feeling of — just the desperate feeling that the American public needs to really know what is going on,” Mendoza said.

Should the media pay more attention to the victims killed by illegal immigrants?
“When you have a problem like what is happening at the border you can’t start at the end result and start placing blame,” she added. “You have to go back to the origin of the problem. That is what the parents, the mothers letting their children go with these smugglers and the cartel bringing these children to our borders … that is where the anger needs to be directed.

“It should not be directed at the United States for upholding its laws, and quite frankly I’m happy that the United States was able to step in and save some of the children from the fate they were dealt — and who knows what was going to happen to them?”

Gibboney, meanwhile, called the president a “man of tremendous integrity” who “kept his word about protecting us and giving us a voice.”

“When my son was murdered, I didn’t know for 11 years that the man that killed my son was an illegal alien,” Gibboney said.

“The media doesn’t report truthfully report what the separation of families really is, but I would like to show everybody what real separation of families is. This is what separates my son and myself, is a coffin and six feet of dirt. How is that for real separation of families?

“We don’t owe illegal aliens anything,” she added. “We need to take care of our own. We have military. We have homeless people. We have children living in poverty. We need to take care of our own.”

Wilkerson, meanwhile, described how her son was carjacked and killed by an illegal alien who had been brought to this country at the age of 10.

“He needed Josh’s truck to scrap for some money,” Wilkerson said. “He beat him in the head with a closet rod so hard it broke in four pieces. He kicked him until his spleen sliced and he strangled him over and over and over again until he didn’t breathe anymore. Then he tied him up like an animal and put him in a field and set him on fire. This is forever. I know they don’t understand the meaning of suffering. We will suffer for the rest of our lives on this earth.”

These are the externalities created by catch-and-release policies and the politicians who decry “zero-tolerance” policies. Think temporary separation is bad? It has nothing on what these parents are experiencing.

And yet, the media doesn’t want to cover it. In fact, when CNN broke away from the “angel families” event to spend more time on covering the “separation crisis,” anchor Brooke Baldwin wondered aloud “why the parents were complaining about the news media’s lack of interest in their stories,” the Times reported.

That certainly says it all, doesn’t it?
