Angel Moms Slam Cornyn’s Talk of Amnesty: “Not a Joke”

Angel Moms, the mothers of U.S. citizens killed by illegal aliens, are criticizing Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) suggestion that Republicans work out an amnesty deal with Senate Democrats.

This week, Cornyn suggested he and Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA) were working on a legislative plan that would grant amnesty to potentially millions of illegal aliens.

Cornyn later told Breitbart News in a statement that the remark was “a joke.”

Angel Moms, who spoke exclusively with Breitbart News, said the slightest hints of amnesty for illegal aliens in Washington, DC are no joke to them.

Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, whose 32-year-old son Brandon Mendoza was killed by an illegal alien in May 2014 in Arizona, told Breitbart News that “there is no excuse for joking about the working on an amnesty bill” when “the border is in complete chaos and an orchestrated invasion is taking place there.

“American citizens don’t deserve to be second best to illegal aliens in our country…it’s no joke for Angel Families,” Mendoza said. “We have fought long and hard for our innocent loved ones killed by unlawful criminals who went unchecked and who have repeatedly shown leniency in our courts.”

Angel Mom Sabine Durden Coulter noted that amnesty talks in Washington, DC are often followed by massive waves of illegal immigration as Mexican drug cartels use the news to entice foreign nationals to make the trip deadly towards the US-Mexico border.

“Any talk, mention or whisper of amnesty creates a ripple effect to signal to illegal aliens inside and outside our country that there could be a deal,” said Angel Mom Sabine Durden Coulter at Breitbart News. “It attracts more to come.”

Durden Coulter’s son Dominic Durden was murdered by an illegal alien in July 2012 in the sanctuary state of California.

“Next month will mark 10 years since my only child, my son Dominic, was killed by an illegal alien who suffered no consequences for being here illegally for years while committing crimes…why American citizens are they the last on the list of these politicians? What is the reward for them? Does the oath they took mean nothing? said Durden Coulter.

Angel Mom Kiyan Michael, whose 21-year-old son Brandon Randolph Michael was killed in 2007 by a twice-deported illegal alien, told Breitbart News she would “recommend to Senator Cornyn that amnesty always be excluded”.

“Any kind of immigration reform should start with closing the border and vetting those who come into this country,” Michael said.

Angel Mom Agnes Gibboney, whose 29-year-old son Ronald Da Silva was killed by an illegal alien in 2002, told Breitbart News that amnesty for illegal aliens had previously failed to stopping future waves of illegal immigration under former President Ronald Reagan in the late 1980s.

“We did it, under President Reagan, and it turned out to be a complete failure,” Gibboney said of the amnesty. “The flow of illegal aliens has never stopped…officials are not respecting the wishes of their constituents.”

“We need to make our voices heard,” she continued. “We cannot be silenced, as our loved ones have been by open border policies.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) immediately chastised Cornyn’s amnesty suggestion, writing in a statement that such a deal is “a no go” with a future GOP majority. in the room.

Similarly, Republican Review Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) wrote that House Republicans “are united, as are our constituents” against amnesty for illegal aliens. .

Today, there are between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, costing American taxpayers more than $143 billion each year. Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) has long estimated that potentially 2,000 Americans are killed each year by illegal aliens.
