A group of Angel Moms – whose family members were killed by undocumented aliens – made their way inside Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s Capitol Hill office to protest the unresolved shutdown and his flip-flop on supporting a border wall.
Mary Ann Mendoza — whose son Brandon Mendoza, a Mesa, Arizona police officer, was killed by an illegal alien with a criminal record in 2014 — led the protesters , storming the Senator’s DC office.

“We are here because as mothers we protect our families and we know what needs to be done to protect our family, and our children and our loved ones. The politicians who are here in DC are not doing the job and so it’s time that we the people speak up, stand up and visit the people who are not doing our bidding and get the wall done!” She was caught on video saying.
She noted that the ranks of the Angels Moms sadly continues to grow, citing the recent deaths of California police officer Ronil Singh and 22-year-old Tennessee native Pierce Cochran.
Cochran, like Brandon Mendoza, was killed in a head-on car crash with an illegal immigrant driving recklessly.
Also on hand on Tuesday was Sabine Durden, a naturalized citizen from Germany, whose 30-year-old son Dominic was killed by an illegal immigrant in southern California in 2012.
He was a Riverside County sheriff’s dispatcher on his way to work when Juan Zacarias Tzun made a left turn in front of him.
Dominic collided with the car and was thrown from his motorcycle, dying on the spot, The Press-Enterprise reported.
Tzun did not have a drivers license and had two convictions for driving under the influence.
“All we want is a certain amount of respect. Just a little,” said Durden in Schumer’s office. “Fake it if you have to, but for them just to blatantly shut down everything is stab in the heart.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi also refused to meet with a group of Angel Moms on Tuesday afternoon, who protested inside her Capitol Hill office.

Instead, The Speaker hid from meeting with the grieving family members who lost loved ones to illegal aliens crime. Democrats and Democrat leaders refuse to support a bill to fund a Southern U.S. border wall.

The president requested $5.7 billion to build 230 miles in new border barriers, but Democrats offered just $1.3 billion for border security, but said it cannot be used for a border wall.
Why is Nancy Pelosi getting paid when people who are working are not?

Democrats declined another invitation by Trump for a White House lunch to discuss the matter, so Trump infamously canceled The Speaker’s pricey trip overseas to force her to stay in DC. Or perhaps she’ll go back to Hawaii?
Representatives Mo Brooks, Louie Gohmert, Matt Gaetz were just some of the legislators who joined the Angel families and Women for Trump. The group stood in front of the United States Capitol Building, while they “put faces to the statistics of Americans killed or injured due to illegal aliens and the drugs that flow in the U.S. at the southern border,” Breitbart reports.
