Media fawned all over House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for standing and speaking for illegal aliens for about eight hours in effort to push for a DACA bill. But it didn’t go unnoticed that while she was willing to stand all that time for illegal aliens she wasn’t willing to even stand a few seconds for the parents of two American children murdered by MS-13.
Laura Wilkerson, who is still grieving for her teenage son killed by a criminal illegal alien in 2010, didn’t miss Pelosi’s actions, what she would stand for and what she wouldn’t.
“I think I can speak for all angel parents that would say, you know, we wish you would do a shut-up-a-thon,” angel mom Laura Wilkerson said Thursday evening on Fox News, directing her ire at Pelosi. “You know, she just wasted her time, everybody’s time yesterday. She doesn’t seem to get it.”
Pelosi certainly does not. Instead of using the eight hours to speak on behalf of the American citizens who’ve lost family members to illegal immigrant murderers, the House minority leader waxed rhapsodic about illegals themselves, particularly those affected by former President Barack Obama’s since-repealed Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“Our DREAMers hang in limbo, with a cruel cloud of fear and uncertainty above them,” Pelosi bellowed from the House floor at the start of her speech, according to NPR. “The Republican moral cowardness must end. So I’m going to go on as long as my leadership minute allows.”
Pelosi then read stories about various Dreamers.
Perhaps with her priority being illegal aliens, Pelosi doesn’t understand how ‘cruel’ this is to Americans who have lost loved ones like Laura Wilkerson.
When actually face to face with Wilkerson, Pelosi treated Wilkerson with classic indifference, giving her a stock answer and no consideration.
“In 2010, one of the illegals slaughtered my son. He tortured him, he beat him, he tied him up like an animal, and he set him on fire. And I am not a one-story mother. This happens every day,” she said, as reported by RealClearPolitics.
“Because there are no laws enforcing the border. We have to start giving American families first. This is not — bad to not put Americans first. We have family that fought and died for this country. How do you reconcile in your head about allowing people to disavow the law?”
Pelosi responded by defending illegal immigrants as “law-abiding citizens” and claiming that sanctuary city law “enables them to, to be there without being reported to ICE in case of another crime that they might bear witness to.”
This is tremendously heartbreaking:
