Mother Whose Son Was Murdered by Illegal Immigrant Demolishes Establishment Media Lies


“The mainstream media does not let you know what’s really happening,” were the words spoken by Angel mom Mary Ann Mendoza on Friday.

Mendoza’s family is one of the many Angel Families who have been “permanently separated” from their loved ones who were killed by illegal immigrants, Fox News reported.

Her son, Mesa Police Officer Brandon Mendoza, had served for thirteen years in the police department before he was killed on May 12, 2014, on his way home from work.

Raul Silva Corona had driven with a blood alcohol level of 0.238 percent the wrong way across three Phoenix freeways before slamming into Sgt. Mendoza’s car. Customs and Immigration Enforcement confirmed that Corona was in the country illegally, according to Breitbart.

“As you know, they could fill this stage up every day for the next five months of victims of illegal alien crime and it would just keep going,” Mendoza said while holding a picture of her son.

“Unfortunately, we are members of a club of our children or loved ones who have been killed by illegal aliens. There are hundreds of thousands of victims every year who are affected by illegal alien crime — rape, assault, identity theft. These are things that go unreported, unchecked.”

The mother then directed people to go to to see the extent of the crimes committed every day by people who enter this country illegally. And these are the people the establishment media want us to feel bad for — ones who enter the country illegally who later commit horrendous crimes against American citizens.

“The mainstream media does not let you know what’s really happening,” Mendoza said. “And we are here, the members of (Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crimes) are here to educate the public of what’s happening.”

Do you think the establishment media should talk more about these families?

Mendoza was not the only Angel parent to speak at the event Friday. Laura Wilkerson took the stage as well to talk about her 18-year-old son, Josh, who was killed in 2010.

“Josh was brutally tortured, strangled over and over, set on fire after death. His last hours were brutal. None of our kids had a minute to say goodbye,” Wilkerson said, according to Fox News. “We weren’t lucky enough to be separated for five days or 10 days. We are separated permanently.”

Trump echoed her sentiments. “These are the American citizens permanently separated from their loved ones. The word you have to think about it ‘permanently,’ because they were killed by illegal immigrants,” Trump said.

“These are the families that the media ignores. This is a very unfair situation.”

And it is the sad reality we are facing today. The establishment media is busy passing off pictures of children in cells from 2014 as current news and talking about the illegal immigrant families who have been separated while the parents are prosecuted for a few days.

These American Angel families are separated. Forever.

But it doesn’t seem like the establishment media or the rest of the country cares.
