Mother of Teen Murdered by Illegal Immigrant Tells Congress:

From the article:

“Every one of you are in a position to do something that we are not. If you’ve been in bed with somebody who’s given you too much money … get out of the way and let someone get in here that can care about Americans and their families,” Wilkerson said.

Also, this:

“If I would have told my daughter, I’m going to Mexico, and had a man, he’ll bring you over here in a year or two, I’d be charged with neglect as well as I should be. I did not put my kid in harm’s way when he went to school that day. You did,” Wilkerson added. “Every one of you is elected by an American. It is time for you to stand in the gap for Americans.”

------------------------------------------

What Laura Wilkerson said is spot on. Good for her!

Reading just how her son was killed by this despicable illegal, is both heartbreaking and infuriating.

Oh my God. This is one of the most brutal, heart-wrenching descriptions of a murder I've ever read. I suppose to the pro-illegal alien crowd, this woman is just a xenophobe who wants to blame all her problems on "immigrants." Every parent of a child murdered by someone who should've been deported should file suit against local, state, and federal government for failing to protect citizens.

Anyone that refuses to enforce the immigration laws that we already have has blood on their hands.
Anyone that thinks that somehow building a wall is unAmerican needs to have their heads checked for a brain.

We all know that not all illegal immigrants are criminals just like how not all muslims are terrorists but why should we take a chance at all. We need to get a handle on this and make sure that the people that are coming into our land are decent people. We don't need anymore criminals.

I hear about this type of stuff everyday on the radio where an illegal alien has caused harm to a citizen and cost money and suffering. The most common is car crashes that usually involve alcohol.

Illegal means illegal it does not mean "that is OK" That poor mom would still have her son if not for a person that should not have been here in the first place. She is right, our elected need to do their jobs and enforce the laws to protect us. It is so basic. Any candidate that is pro amnesty needs to make way for someone that believes in the laws of the land.
They have blood on their hands.

You should read up on the Jennifer Pena and Renee Ertman murders in Houston in 1992. These two teenagers (14 and 16) took a short cut home and stumbled upon a gang initiation. They were gang raped by all of them, repeatedly for hours, and then strangled and left to rot, like pieces of trash. Three of the gang members were sentenced to death. After the one American citizen had already been put to death, the International Court asked for a new trial for Jose Medellin because he wasn't told he could get counsel from his consulate (the guy was brought here illegally by his parents as a child and grew up in Houston).

Pres. Bush asked the state to comply with the International Court, but the junior attorney from the Texas Attorney General's office successfully argued before the Supreme Court that Texas had a right to follow its own laws. That junior attorney was Ted Cruz.

I remember people around the country were so mad that Texas was going to follow through with the execution because they said it would make it harder for Americans abroad. After the execution a reporter went to Mexico and talked to people about their reaction, and after hearing the details most were fine with the execution. They certainly didn't want someone like that coming back to Mexico. What made me so mad was that they were basically arguing that he should have extra rights not afforded to the American citizens in the case.

What is horrible is that we do have citizens murder but a lot of the time they know one another and drugs are involved but the illegal aliens are extremely brutal and seem to just chose people at random. People they never saw before or spoke to.

I just don't see why there are so many. It is like they bring the criminals of the country and shove them over the border or they are hearing that we go easy on criminals here. I do know that Mexico doesn't play around with their criminals. I had a friend that came legally from Mexico and she said there that they made them work in the salt mines and that pretty much took care of the problem because when they came out, they died pretty quickly after. We nodded to that being good.

We have already seen that locking them up here and releasing them is just seen as an opportunity to do it again.

I saw a clip of her testifying on the evening news, and it broke my heart.

Oops, I bungled their names. It was Jennifer Ertman and Renee Pena, two beautiful teenage girls who were raped in every oriface for over an hour before getting strangled so hard by two guys at once with a belt that the belt broke in two. One girl had her teeth kicked out with a steel toed boot before being strangled. It was such an awful case that anyone living in Houston at the time can remember details about it even all these years later.

At least in this case the perps paid the price.

What a terrible way to die and by foreigners that didn't have a right to be in our country. Makes me sick to my stomach.

Yes, some illegal aliens do horrible things, as in this case, however, Ted Bundy, the Unibomber, and thousands of other similar killers were not aliens. I know the Mother feels that illegals were the cause of that crime, and they were, but aliens do not have an exclusive on evil.

Just sayin'.
