“Angel mom” Mary Ann Mendoza, who lost her son Brandon because of a drunk driving illegal immigrant, just ripped congressional Democrats in an opinion column for Fox News, pointing out how the left’s priorities are revealed by their invitees to the State of the Union address.
Mendoza praised President Donald Trump for his compassion toward “angel families” like hers and noted that he invited to the speech the surviving family of a married couple murdered by an illegal immigrant.
Not so for the Democrats. Not a single Democrat invited an angel mom or angel family as their guest, nor will most even meet with them at any other time, despite efforts by the angel families to arrange meetings.
Mendoza explained that in 2014 an illegal immigrant with a criminal record killed her son and that the loss of Brandon still pains her and will for the rest of her life.
She said Trump stands up on behalf of Americans like her, but, “Democrats, however, have a different agenda.”
“Their guest list for the State of the Union proves that they care more about political gamesmanship than they do about the safety and security of the American people,” Mendoza wrote.
“Just as they did last year, congressional Democrats are inviting illegal immigrants to attend the prestigious event,” she continued.
“The ploy is directed at President Trump, but it’s a slap in the face to the thousands of Americans whose loved ones have died at the hands of criminal illegal immigrants.”
The grieving mother argued that Democrats are quick to shed a tear for the plight of poor migrants attempting to enter the country, but seemingly steel themselves against any emotion or sympathy for American citizens who suffer because of illegal immigration, whether that suffering comes by way of crime, economic impacts on their communities or the opioid and illicit drug epidemic.
“While my son might be little more than an inconvenient statistic to Nancy Pelosi, he was more a genuine patriot than she’ll ever be,” Mendoza wrote. “Brandon was a police officer who selflessly devoted his life to enforce the laws of our land — the very laws that Pelosi and the Democrats are actively encouraging foreigners to defy.”
OPINION: “President Trump is prioritizing the protection of Americans from illegal immigrants like the one who killed my son, but the Democrats certainly are not,” Mary Ann Mendoza wrote in a recent op-ed ahead of the State of the Union address. https://t.co/phOa6w9lUF pic.twitter.com/xUcvrCJLSg

Mendoza noted that while Pelosi wouldn’t see her among the honored guests in the gallery for Tuesday night’s event, so too would she never see — or anyone else, for that matter — her son Brandon.
Yet, that won’t stop Mendoza and others like her from continuing to fight on behalf of American citizens opposed to the ongoing crisis at the border that has opened up this great nation and those who reside in it to the worst sort of unnecessary criminality and destruction.
“While the Democrats continue to play political games with American lives, I take comfort in knowing that President Trump will keep fighting until our country is secure,” Mendoza concluded.
“As I watch the State of the Union address Tuesday night, I’ll be thinking of Brandon, and praying for our president.”
