'Angel Mom': Dems Must Stop Protecting DREAMers & Stand Up for Americans
On "The Story" on Tuesday night, an "Angel Mom" said Democrat lawmakers need to stop importing, protecting and providing for illegal immigrants, and instead focus on the well-being of American citizens.
Mary Ann Mendoza, whose police officer son was killed by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant in 2014, said she is hopeful that President Donald Trump will follow through on his promise to crack down on illegal immigration.
Trump has presented a proposal that would offer a path to citizenship for 1.8 million so-called "DREAMers," and call for $25 billion in funding for a border wall and security. It also calls for cracking down on chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program.
Democrats have said they want a clean bill to give DREAMers amnesty, but Mendoza said Trump and Republicans must link that with broader immigration reform, in order to cut down on the American lives lost to illegal immigrant crime.
"There can never be a clean DREAM Act with all the blood of these innocent Americans on it," Mendoza said. "It just can't happen."
As for the Democrats who are calling for amnesty, Mendoza said she would like to ask them which of their children they would choose to lose to support their immigration agenda.
"Which child do you want to lose at the hands of an illegal alien? Because that's the price they've made us pay," Mendoza said.
She called out Democrats and the mainstream media for lying to the American people about the individuals in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
"They do commit crimes, they don't [all] graduate from high school, they're not all contributing members of society," Mendoza said. "And to lie to the American public to promote an agenda is just not beneficial to this country at all."
