If you haven’t already heard, the Democrats brought several illegal immigrants onto the stage at the Democratic National Convention to make a powerful point about immigration. However, their sentiment isn’t sitting well with many people. [Scroll Down For Video]
One of those people is Mary Ann Mendoza, mother of police officer Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, who was killed by a driver who was driving on the wrong side of the road back in 2014.
The driver was Raul Silva-Corona, an illegal immigrant who had been in and out of the criminal justice system for nearly 20 years. He was drunk when he killed Sgt. Mendoza.
So when Democrats brought a young girl onto the stage who was born to illegal immigrants, Mary Ann Mendoza just knew she had to speak out.
“If my son had been a civilian killed by a police officer, thousands of people would know his name. But he was a police officer killed by an illegal and the liberals want to ignore that this problem even exists in our country.”
Mary Ann Mendoza previously issued a scathing open letter to the Obama administration for their policies which allowed Raul Silva-Corona to stay in the country after numerous prior arrests. Here is an excerpt from that letter:
I am writing this letter to you regarding illegal immigrants.
As a tax paying, law abiding citizen of the United States, I WANT my voice heard on this issue. My son, Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, an officer who was with the City of Mesa, Arizona police department, was killed in a tragic head on collision on May 12, 2014 by a wrong way driver on our freeways. This man happened to be an illegal immigrant, was in this country illegally, convicted of previous crimes, no Social Security number, no valid driver’s license BUT he had purchased a vehicle and registered it to drive in Maricopa County Arizona.
The Federal Government knew he, Raul Silva Corona , was an illegal immigrant when he was convicted on crimes in 1994 in Colorado. The prosecutors were ‘lenient’ on him and several charges were dismissed… Why wasn’t he deported?
I am furious that the Federal Government allowed this criminal to stay in this country and KILL my son!
Here is the full interview Mendoza did with Sean Hannity earlier this week.
