People are often quick to listen to victims, whether it be a shooting incident or act of sexual misconduct, but it seems that general practice is all but lost by those on the Left when it comes to border violence or crimes committed by an illegal immigrant.
President Trump uses the term “angel families” to describe relatives of victims killed by illegal immigrants. He listens to these victims, but it seems others in mainstream media and on the Left will not.
It could be because these families defy the Leftist narrative.
As the Washington Examiner reports, Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza—who lost her son in a traffic accident after an illegal immigrant hit him in 2014—has called for increased border security in a new advertisement with America First Policies.
“I want to have the border wall funded, we need to have border security,” said Mendoza in the ad, per the report.
Check it out:
Fed up that little has been done to thwart illegal immigration since her son was killed in a car wreck with an undocumented alien in 2014, an ‘angel mom’ is joining President Trump’s efforts to build a border wall.
Holding a picture of her son Brandon, killed when a car driven by an intoxicated driver who was in the U.S. illegally hit his Mesa, Ariz. police car, she said, “The system absolutely failed Brandon, failed myself and is failing America. I just feel like we’ve become collateral damage.”
America First Policies is airing the ad on digital platforms and websites in several swing states that are expected to be critical to Trump’s reelection and Senate Democrats up for election in 2020. It is expected to air until a funding deal for the wall is brokered in Washington.

As Breitbart News reports, the mainstream media networks of CNN and MSNBC have kept these “Angel” parents off of their programs.
From the report:
Since January 1, neither CNN nor MSNBC has booked a single “Angel Mom” — mothers of children brutally murdered by illegal aliens — as guests on their networks, per an analysis conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC).
