• Mother of Slain Teen Thanks Donald Trump During Senate Hearing: ‘Whether You Love Him or You Don’t, I Felt Heard’

    Laura Wilkerson spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday on illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.

    Wilkerson is the mother of 18 year-old Joshua, a Texas teenager who was brutally murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2010.

    She thanked Donald Trump during her opening remarks of the hearing titled “Oversight of the Administration’s Misdirected Immigration Enforcement Policies: Examining the Impact on Public Safety and Honoring the Victims.”

    She began her testimony detailing how her son was killed.

    “On November 16, 2010, he was beaten, strangled, tortured until he died,” she said. “He was tied up, thrown in a field, and set on fire. His killer, Hermilo Moralez, was brought here illegally by his illegal parents when he was ten years old, so he fit the ‘DREAM’ kid description. He was sentenced to life in prison, which means it will be 30 years before he’s up for parole. He’ll be a 49-year-old man, who I don’t expect to be deported. And I just hope he doesn’t come to live in your city.”

    “This was our family’s 9/11 terrorist attack by a foreign invader,” she said.

    Wilkerson then expressed her disgust with sanctuary city policies that provide safe harbor and anonymity for dangerous illegal aliens.

    Sanctuary city policies scream to the criminal element of illegals in this country: ‘Come to our town USA, we’ll protect you from our terrible policemen. We’ll protect you from these tough American laws, that you — because you had a hard life — are not able to go through the same motion that an American is. It is going to take another life lost by a Senator, a Congressman, the President, even another of today’s heroes, someone from Hollywood before someone in a position moves on this. I urge you: you are in a position to do something about this for Americans.

    “I thank you to Mr. Trump for getting a message out about the nation in two minutes… that countless families like my own have been trying to say for five to six years. It feels good to be heard whether you love him, or whether you don’t, I felt heard.”
