The Remembrance Project was at the White House on Friday (June 22) representing with many family members, the separation of loved ones who were stolen from their families by illegal aliens. At the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, President Trump greeted them with words many of us have waited decades to hear from the Chief Executive:
We’re gathered today to hear directly from the American victims of illegal immigration…These are the American citizens permanently separated from their loved ones — the word “permanently” being the word that you have to think about — “permanently.” They’re not separated for a day or two days. These are permanently separated, because they were killed by criminal illegal aliens.
At the meeting, the president went through the statistics that you rarely, if ever, hear quoted in the mainstream media when it comes to discussing illegal immigration, criminal aliens, or border security. According to a 2011 GAO report (page 4), illegal aliens had committed almost 15,000 kidnappings and over 25,000 homicides. Over 42,000 robberies, nearly 70,000 sexual assaults, and over 500,000 drug crimes. The list is extensive and infuriating.
Since 2011, the State of Texas has had over 250,000 criminal aliens arrested and charged with over 600,000 crimes.
The president nailed it when he said, I always hear that, Oh, no, the population is safer than the people that live in the country. You’ve heard that, fellas. Right? You’ve heard that. I hear it so much. And I say, Is that possible? The answer is it’s not true.
Sanctuary cities over the past year have released over 8,000 criminal aliens back into their communities to prey on American citizens.
Maria Espinoza and her husband Tim Lyng created The Remembrance Project to remember those lives which were stolen from their families by illegal aliens in the hope that this terrible cost would motivate our elected officials to take action, enforce the law, and protect our country and our citizens.
Maria was a guest on Neil Cavuto’s show on Wednesday, and he accurately pointed out that the media doesn’t spend hardly any time covering the lost family members compared to the nonstop attention they were giving to illegal alien kids held in detention.
President Trump said on Friday, For years, their pain was met with silence; their plight was met with indifference. But no more. I told them three years ago when we were together, from day one — just about day one I would say — I said, I hear you, I see you, and I will never let you down.
Thank you Maria, thank you Angel Families, and thank you President Trump.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
