Aunt of Cop Slain by Illegal Immigrant: Obama's 'Words Would Fall on Deaf Ears'
Two law enforcement officers were killed last week in California by an illegal immigrant on a violent crime spree.
Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte - who previously was arrested and deported in 1997 for drug possession and again in 2001 for an unspecified offense - shot and killed Placer County detective Michael Davis Jr. and Sacramento County Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver.
On "Hannity" tonight, two of Detective Davis' aunts, Pam Davis Owens and Vickie Ikenberry, spoke out about a lack of border security, which allows criminal illegal immigrants like Monroy-Bracamonte to repeatedly return to the U.S. after deportation.
Davis Owens said the tragic death of her nephew - which occurred 26 years to the day after his father, also a police officer, was gunned down in the line of duty - makes her entire family angry beyond words at the government's failure to secure the border.
"It's got to stop. There can't be any more like this," she said. "I don't want anybody to ever go through what we've gone through, not once, but now twice."
She added that there has been tremendous public outcry and support, but her family hasn't heard anything from members of Congress.
Hannity asked Ikenberry how she would react if President Obama said he was sorry for her loss.
"I’m not even sure, I don’t know if I can be kind because I think his words would fall on deaf ears," she replied. "I just don’t think I can handle him saying he’s sorry."
"Our entire family is law enforcement," Davis Owens said. "My husband and I are both retired sergeants from Placer County. My folks had to go through losing a son, worrying about us and now losing a grandson."
"My other nephew, Michael's middle brother, is also a sergeant with Placer County. And for the first time in my life, I'm afraid for my own flesh and blood to be doing the job that I spent my career on. It's just horrible."
