The battle over America’s immigration system is in full swing, and President Trump plans on using his upcoming State of the Union speech to appeal to the people with his common sense reforms.
In recent years, we’ve seen disgusting grandstanding by leftists, who’ve brought illegals as guests to the speech, as a means to show their “support” for the non-citizen criminals. To counter, some GOP members have brought victims of illegal alien crime. This time around, the president will bolster his message by bringing his own guest, to signal his intent to prosecute his war against the murderous MS-13 gang.
As reported at the New York Post, taking a page right out of the radical Left’s playbook, Trump will be inviting his own guest to his State of the Union speech, a mom who lost her daughter after the teen was “marked for death” by MS-13 gangsters on Long Island.
Evelyn Rodriguez lost her 16-year-old daughter to the gang, and ever since, she’s become a fierce advocate for schools and the government to do more to combat gang-related violence. They’ve been a significant problem in places like Long Island, where they’ve accounted for at least 23 murders since 2016.
“Nisa and Kayla had been close friends since elementary school, but in September 2016, the two girls were chased down and brutally murdered,” reads a press release announcing Trump’s special guests.
“Their deaths were among a string of . . . Long Island slayings that have been attributed to Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13.”
Last March, six MS-13 members were charged with the teens’ murders, including two leaders of the “Sailors” clique who allegedly authorized the slayings.
Cuevas had been involved in “a series of disputes” with MS-13 gang members in the months before her murder, federal prosecutors said. The dispute reached a tipping point when Cuevas supposedly got into an argument with some of the gang members at school.
“After that incident, the MS-13 members vowed to seek revenge against Cuevas,” the federal complaint states.
A major part of Rodriguez’s advocacy is directed towards schools and how she’d like them to take more responsibility and action to prevent the type of bullying her daughter faced. Last month, Rodriguez filed a $110 million lawsuit against the Brentwood School District, saying that officials ignored repeated complaints that MS-13 members were threatening her daughter.
The suit says Cuevas had been bullied by gang members for years, and was subsequently “marked for death” by a student on Sept. 8, 2016. One gangster “made a throat-slicing gesture towards [her],” the papers state. It was only days later that Cuevas and her friend were brutally murdered.
While Democrats are busy bringing illegals to the Capitol, Trump’s guests will be representing the what happens when the border is allowed to stay open and the government does nothing to stem the invasion.
