Several "Angel parents" -- the mothers and fathers of U.S. citizens killed
by illegal immigrants -- are accusing top Democrats of being out of touch
with regular America after they claimed President Trump is
manufacturing a crisis at the border to win support for the construction
of his long-promised wall.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, D-Ca., used the 'manufacturing' language Tuesday night during
their tag-team rebuttal to Trumps Oval Office address -- his first ever -
- on border security. The Democratic duo argued the president was merely
trying to strike fear into the hearts of Americans in an attempt to get
his central campaign promise across the finish line. But that spin didn't
sit well with those who've lost loved ones due to illegal immigration.
Im just wondering if Nancy Pelosi had one of her children or
grandchildren assaulted in the same way that my son was assassinated if
she would speak the same way. I just wonder about that, Jeffrey Mazin,
the father of Alexander Mazin, told Fox News The Ingraham Angle.
Alexander Mazin, 27, was shot and killed at a gym parking lot in San Diego
in February last year. The suspected shooter, Ernesto Castellanos
Martinez, is reported to be the ex-boyfriend of the woman Mazin had
recently started dating. Martinez, investigators say, is also a twice-
deported illegal immigrant who has since fled to Mexico.
The man straddled him and pumped four more bullets into his chest. My son
died there in the parking lot, like a rat in the street, his father told
Fox News last year. Obviously every time I tell it, the emotion pours out
Julie Golvach, the mother of Spencer Golvach who was shot and killed by
an illegal immigrant at a traffic light in Houston in 2015 also told Fox
News that Schumer and Pelosis comments struck a nerve.
It may seem 'manufactured' to them because they are sitting safely behind
walls, but for those of us out in regular America, we are victims, we are
prone to the victimization of illegal aliens and crime, she said on Fox
& Friends Wednesday morning.
Pelosi, who delivered the first part of the Democratic rebuttal Tuesday
night, said Americans all agree that we need to secure our borders while
honoring our values."
But she added: the fact is: the women and children at the border are not
a security threat, they are a humanitarian challenge a challenge that
President Trumps own cruel and counterproductive policies have only
deepened. And the fact is: President Trump must stop holding the American
people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis, and must re-open the
Schumer, in his remarks, echoed Pelosi in tone and substance, saying first
that Democrats and the President both want stronger border security,"
before noting "we sharply disagree with the President about the most
effective way to do it."
Schumer also reiterated calls to end the ongoing partial government
shutdown and accused Trump of using the backdrop of the Oval Office to
manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in
Trump, in a speech focused on what he described as a growing humanitarian
and security crisis at our southern border, appeared to reference parents
such as Mazin and Golvach. Trump interacted with "Angel parents"
frequently while he was campaigning for the White House, often invoking
their departed sons and daughters during speeches and speaking about the
parents on a first-name basis. His Tuesday remarks were delivered in a
For those who refuse to compromise in the name of border security, I
would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband or your wife whose
life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken, he said. To every
member of Congress, pass a bill that ends this crisis. To every citizen,
call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure
The contentious debate over immigration policy was thrust back into the
spotlight last year as massive migrant caravans tried to make their way
through Central America in a bid to enter the U.S. Meanwhile, a zero-
tolerance policy instituted by the Trump administration's Justice
Department, which led to nearly 2,000 children being temporarily separated
from their families after being caught trying to cross the U.S. border,
also sparked a national outcry.
Some of those from the caravans who are still hoping to get into the U.S.
watched Trumps address Tuesday on television sets inside shelters in
Tijuana, just on the other side of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Many of the migrants have told reporters they fled Central America due to
the threat of violence and a poor job market.
Speaking to Fox News Jonathan Hunt following the presidents speech,
several migrants expressed disappointment in Trump's remarks.
If you don't like obeying the laws you broke to get into the USA, go back
