President Trump shared Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza’s story of how an illegal alien killed her son. Trump shared the story on his Facebook page. Mendoza is one of our advisory board members who works tirelessly to get the wall built. She has traveled to the border on several occasions with Brian Kolfage & other We Build the Wall, Inc. board members. She also spoke at our first border wall townhall in Tucson, Arizona last month.
The only thing "immoral" about Border Security is the politicians that do NOTHING as innocent Americans are victimized by failed policies!
Via the Scottsdale independent:
Mendoza: Open borders resulted in my son’s death, please stop the carnage
“Some say building a border wall would be immoral. As a parent whose child was killed by an illegal immigrant, I say it would be immoral not to secure our border once and for all.
Each year, thousands of parents receive the heart-breaking news that their son or daughter has died at the hands of an illegal immigrant or the illegal drugs that are smuggled across our southern border.
Several of those parents were on hand for President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency last month, and my heart went out to them when CNN’s Jim Acosta heartlessly tried to downplay their suffering in order to make a political point.
I’m just one of the many parents who have experienced the tragedy of our country’s broken immigration system. With each day that we avoid addressing this crisis, more families are needlessly torn apart.
I have earned the right to my political opinion on Border Security. Politicians have made it political. My son became collateral damage & they don’t want to meet with me. They OWE me a face to face so I can tell them THEY have manufactured these lies they are telling Americans pic.twitter.com/c6P8eawSjs

This year, illegal drugs — most of which are smuggled in through our unsecured southern border — will take more American lives than the entire Vietnam War. Meanwhile, thousands of American citizens will be killed by illegal immigrants, many of whom are allowed to roam the streets freely despite having a criminal record.
That’s exactly what happened to my son, Brandon, who was taken from us nearly five years ago when an illegal immigrant with a criminal record was driving drunk and plowed his vehicle into Brandon’s car as he was on his way home from work.
The monster who killed Brandon was previously charged with burglary and assaulting a police officer in the 1990s, but he never showed up to court. He was even apprehended by Border Patrol while re-entering the country in 2002, only for a judge to let him back onto the streets.
With disturbing regularity, we see reports from communities across the country of yet another American life ended at the hands of an illegal immigrant who should not have been allowed to enter or stay in this country.
Trump recognizes our effort, sharing this incredible story of one of our incredible advisory board members, Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza. We're beyond honored to have her on our team.

In my home state of Arizona alone, the Government Accountability Office estimates that homicides accounted for 4 percent of the roughly 6,000 illegal immigrants convicted of crimes in 2008. That comes out to 240 homicide convictions in just one state, in just one year. That same year, an estimated 3,000 illegal aliens were convicted of homicide in California.
The carnage is of massive proportions, and yet politicians in Washington still refuse to protect us by securing America’s borders.
The question is, why? Why should families like mine suffer while politicians fret over the morality of enforcing our nation’s immigration laws? Why does Congress continue to pay lip service to border security while doing nothing to achieve it?
The answer has become achingly clear. It’s because politicians in Washington value their own careers over what’s good for the country. As a result, I’ll never be able to hug my son again, or experience the pride of watching him raise his own family.
President Trump is the only person in Washington who seems to understand the gravity of the illegal immigration crisis, and I’m immensely grateful to him for taking action to secure the border after Congress refused to protect American families like mine.”

We Build the Wall Builds First Half-Mile Section of Border Wall in New Mexico – in Four Days
TENNESSEE STAR: The group We Build the Wall announced Monday it has completed construction of a large section of wall spanning between a half-mile and a mile along an open area of the Southern border previously believed to be unbuildable.
According to a story by The Washington Times, the wall section is along the southern border in New Mexico, and the organization says that is a first in the history of the border.
The wall is made of 18-foot steel bollard like what the Border Patrol uses, the Times said.
Just late last week, a federal judge ordered a halt to part of President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration and shifting of money within the Pentagon to make up for Congress’s refusal to fund the wall, the Timessaid.
The new section closes a gap that was between the end of the El Paso, Texas border wall and Mount Cristo Rey, across from the City of Juarez, The Gateway Pundit said.
“The gap is a half mile wide corridor and it’s literally a parking lot on the Mexican side and then you walk five steps and you are in the parking lot on the American side. There’s no barbed wire. There’s not ANY barrier. You just walk from one parking lot to the other.”
In the past, groups over a hundred in size on a typical evening would often come through this particular corridor. And while the border patrol is dealing with all the people down at the bottom of the gap in the flat area the cartels would be sending drugs up on the side of the mountain with no border control interference at all.
The new section of wall is on private property where the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers previously said it would not be possible to build – a belief Kolfage and his team took as a challenge along with builder Tommy Fisher, owner of Fisher Sand and Gravel (pictured with Kris Kobach, left).
Kolfage said his group will sell the wall to the federal government for $1. His cost was between $6 million to $8 million.
Kolfage also tweeted video of the wall’s construction: “The people’s wall is unveiled! The first segment is nearly complete!! DONATE NOW to help fund more walls! http://www.gofundme.com/thetrumpwall ”.
The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has talked about the construction of a new wall at the border, Breitbart said last week, adding that 38 miles as of March 21 have been built.
In a statement provided to Breitbart News two months ago, a CBP spokesperson said the 38 miles of newly constructed wall system “provides new capability by replacing ineffective or dilapidated infrastructure, such as Normandy-style barriers designed only to stop vehicles, not people on foot.”
The majority of the border has remained open as the Department of Homeland Security replaces existing fencing rather than expanding barriers.
