OBAMA: Today, I want to update you on some important progress we’ve made to protect our communities from gun violence. As I said in January, these commonsense steps are not going to prevent every tragedy, but what if they prevented even one? We should be doing everything we can to save lives and spare families the pain and unimaginable loss too many Americans have endured.If the President really cared about saving an American life or two, he might consider enforcing the border and immigration laws. Doing that would save many lives, not just one. Too many citizen lives have been lost to criminal illegal aliens because the government permits and arguably promotes the influx of dangerous foreigners.
When hundreds of illegal aliens convicted of murder are not deported, but instead are purposefully released into American communities, we have to understand that the government no longer cares about public safety for its citizens.
Candidate Donald Trump has made a point of demonstrating the human cost of open borders by recognizing the crime victims of illegal aliens. For example, Laura Wilkerson was an opening speaker for a Trump rally in Orlando in early March. Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son Joshua had been tortured to death by an illegal alien. Trump also met with crime victim families in July and August during his campaign travels, remarking on the issue to the press.
On Thursday in Costa Mesa, California, Trump invited several victim families on stage with him, including Jamiel Shaw, the father of a son killed by an illegal alien gangster in 2008.
Jamiel Shaw mentioned that the illegal alien killer was “on his third gun charge” plus “assault with a deadly weapon, battery on a peace officer, resisting arrest.”
Seriously, killer Pedro Espinoza was a murder waiting to happen. He was violent while incarcerated so the authorities could see how dangerous he was first hand. He was a particularly violent character in jail where he acted as a gang enforcer. News reports say he was the aggressor in eight incidents while he was incarcerated, including attacks on other inmates. One officer testified at trial that Espinoza tried to fight him in the police interrogation room. Yet the alien was released onto Los Angeles streets where he shot young Jamiel Shaw III to death a day later.
An illegal alien criminal practically gets a license to practice in the US. Donald Trump is apparently the only presidential candidate who really understands the level of lawlessness that has been going on for years.
