'Angel Mom' on Trump's Border Security Plan: 'It's Immoral Not to Build That Wall'
A mother whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant praised President Trump Saturday for maintaining his efforts to fund a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Sabine Durden's son, Dominic, was killed in 2012 when a truck slammed into his motorcycle. The truck’s driver, Juan Zacarias Tzun, was an illegal immigrant with two felonies and two DUIs.
Durden said on "Fox & Friends" that Trump needs to "stand his ground" on border enforcement.
"I'm giving him a standing ovation," she said. "He's doing what somebody should do for America who is in power."
After a meeting with top Democrats on negotiating an end to the partial government shutdown, Trump stood firm on his demand for $5 billion in funds for border security, including for a border wall.
The Democrats could solve the Shutdown problem in a very short period of time. All they have to do is approve REAL Border Security (including a Wall), something which everyone, other than drug dealers, human traffickers and criminals, want very badly! This would be so easy to do!

Other politicians should stand with the president, Durden said, instead of trying to dismiss him and his plans to build a wall.
"It's immoral not to build that wall and protect other Americans from having the same fate that I suffered," she said.
She said that there seem to be other reasons other than money as to why top Democrats don't want to agree to Trump's border wall demands.
"It's insane," she said. "I think politics are being played big time. ... You have to love Americans more than you hate the president."
