Earlier, President Donald J. Trump held a press conference during which he slammed the mainstream media for creating a political sideshow out of “separation of families” at the border, while ignoring families who have been permanently separated from loved ones due to illegal immigration.
“No major cameras and networks to their homes, or displayed images of their incredible loved ones across the nightly news – [the media] don’t do that,” Trump said at a press conference with Angel Parents. “They don’t talk about the death and destruction caused by people who shouldn’t be here, people who will continuously get into trouble and do bad things.”
Angel Parents are parents whose children have been killed by illegal immigrants. They are part of The Remembrance Project, which proves support to families of American children slain by illegal immigrants.
“These are the stories that Democrats and people who are weak on immigration – they don’t want to discuss, they don’t want to hear, they don’t want to see, they don’t want to talk about,” Trump continued. “For years their pain was met with silence, and their plight was met with indifference. But no more.”
After a brief speech, he invited several Angel Parents to speak about their experiences losing loved ones to illegal immigrants.
One of the parents, Steve Ronnebeck, told a harrowing story that encapsulated the spirit of the entire event.
“January 22, 2015 Grant was at work on his overnight shift,” Ronnebeck said. “An illegal alien came in wanting to buy cigarettes. He dumped a jar of change on the counter. Grant went to count the change and wasn’t counting fast enough. So, uh, basically, this man pulled a gun, Grant did everything he was supposed to do – gave him the cigarettes. The man went ahead and executed him. Shot him point blank in the face.”

“You don’t hear these stories, and some of the media won’t talk to you about it,” he said. “But this is permanent separation. For his birthday I go to his grave. For Christmas, we set up a Christmas tree on Grant’s grave.”
Ronnebeck continued on to bashed the media for their lack of integrity.
Today’s press conference had the desired effect. It served as a reminder that some parents are permanently separated from their children by murderous or reckless illegal aliens. As Ronnebeck mentioned, it’s happened to 63,000 families since September 11, 2001, and the problem will only continue to get worse.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
