Editor’s Note: These family members are demanding accountability from Washington. Very bold! They deserve answers.
Several family members of victims of horrific crimes committed by illegal aliens have invited House Speaker John Boehner to visit the U.S. Border with Mexico with them in a fiery letter provided exclusively to Breitbart News.
“As you leave Washington, D.C. to vacation with your families, our families invite you and your entire family to spend the weekend in McAllen, Texas,” the victims’ family members wrote to Boehner and other lawmakers Wednesday. “We invite you to see firsthand the invasion and lawlessness that is destroying our beloved country, and how you (and others) have given de facto permission and unfettered access to the perpetrators who have killed our loved ones, leaving our families in complete grief and disbelief as to ‘how’ this horrific tragedy was allowed! What about our children, Mr. Boehner? Where is the out-cry for OUR children and American families?”
Signers of the letter include three family members of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was killed by Mexican drug cartel operatives in late 2010. The cartel members were using weapons that were part of Operation Fast and Furious, which has since burgeoned into a congressional investigation into gun-walking and a scandal in which President Barack Obama has asserted executive privilege to hide documents from Congress. Terry’s family members who signed this letter include his mother Josephine, brother Kent, and sister Kelly.
Other signers include Laura and George Wilkerson, whose son Josh was brutally murdered by a DREAMer illegal alien, Jamiel Shaw whose son Jamiel Shaw, Jr., was murdered by illegal alien gang members in Los Angeles, Don Rosenberg, whose son Drew was killed in a car accident by a Honduran man in the U.S. on temporary protective status but driving without a license, and Carrie and Lou Ruiz, whose daughter was stabbed over 39 times by an illegal alien from Venezuela. The illegal alien remains free to this day—a story that True Crime will air later this year.
Juan Benavides, whose brother Jesse was murdered in 2011 by an illegal alien authorities had previously released after rape charges weeks earlier, signed the letter, as did Kisha Lambert, whose daughter Shatavia Anderson was murdered in 2010 by a 22-year-old illegal alien who was previously deported twice and an 18-year-old legal immigrant from Honduras.
Jim Binger, whose 16-year-old daughter Brittany was allegedly raped and murdered in 2005 by a deaf-mute illegal alien who has had trouble for years standing trial because he couldn’t assist in his own defense but will finally face trial later this year, signed the letter too, as did Maureen Maloney whose son Matthew Denice of Milford, Massachusetts, was killed in a hit-and-run accident by a drunken illegal alien who dragged his body for a quarter mile down the street after striking Denice’s motorcycle.
So did Brian McCann, whose brother Denny was murdered in a drunk driving hit-and-run by another illegal alien, as did Carol Vizzi, whose son Justin Goodman was killed in a hit-and-run by an illegal alien who fled the scene, having previously been previously arrested multiple times but never deported. Joining them also in demanding the Speaker stand up for Americans over illegal aliens is Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son Sgt. Brandon Mendoza of the Mesa Police Department in Arizona was killed in a fatal car crash earlier in 2014—the driver of the other car was an illegal alien. Ms. Mendoza has also written to President Obama saying her son’s life was “stolen.”
