One of the Angel Moms, Michelle Root, recently testified before a congressional committee, asking for Joe Biden’s crazy amnesty plans to be stopped in their tracks.
Root, whose 21-year-old daughter Sarah was killed in January 2016 on the night of her graduation by illegal alien Eswin Mejia, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week to ask lawmakers not to pass the “Dream and Promise Act of 2021.”Breitbart News
Her words said more than we can.
The man who murdered my daughter entered the country illegally. He came in as an unaccompanied minor, committed additional crimes, drove while intoxicated, smashed his truck into my daughter, and then ran away after posting a $5,000 bond. His bail was less than what it cost to bury my baby. He was never convicted. Yes, this happened during the Obama administration when the policy was to catch and release, ignore sanctuary cities, and turn a blind eye to illegal immigration in the interior of our country. Unfortunately, those failed policies are back and the Biden administration has continued to endorse the lawlessness. [Emphasis added]
I’m here today to say that legislation rewarding illegal behavior is dangerous, and it’s a threat to our rule of law.Breitbart News
She also called out the Dream Act specifically.
There are many tragic stories like Root’s, and they’re all because of open-borders policies put in place by Democrats.
It doesn’t take much to enforce border security. It was something the Trump Administration was spectacularly good at, and they accomplished it within a few short years.
But now we’re living through what is effectively Barack Obama’s third term, and the same terrible outcomes are likely to happen again.
Root also went deeper into why the Dream Act is so wrong for our country.
“This is a legalization bill for more than children … this is a legalization bill for criminals,” Root said. “… the bill protects people who simply apply by giving them safe harbor to remain in the United States while their application is pending.”
“It rewards the illegal behavior that my daughter’s killer carried out. It excuses their criminal histories and does not make America better,” Root continued.Breitbart News
She also has a solution to the problem.
Rather than passing the amnesty plan, Root said lawmakers ought to support “Sarah’s Law” which would require the federal government to detain illegal aliens charged with crimes resulting in the death or serious injury of American citizens.Breitbart News
Her full statement can be watched below.
We wish her well in her efforts to block the Dream Act and pass Sarah’s Law.
It’s a far better proposal than the one from the Biden Administration, which would make our country far less safe.
But maybe that’s exactly what the Democrats want…
It looks like we’ll find out, if Republicans don’t put a stop to this.
