Mary Anne Mendoza wants answers about her son’s death—but, so far, she’s heard nothing from the Obama White House.
Her son, Officer Brian Mendoza, 32, was a police officer in Tempe, Arizona. He was driving home from work in May 2014, when he was hit by a drunk-driving illegal alien who was driving on the wrong side of the road.
Raul Silva-Corona, the drunk driver, was killed at the scene. He had been in the United States illegally for more than 20 years, and had been convicted of multiple crimes in the 1990s—but still not deported.
Since then, Mary Anne has tried to fight to hold people live Silva-Corona responsible for their crimes—and tried to take Democrats to task for allowing illegal aliens to stay in this country despite their criminal record, and even apply for drivers’ licenses.
“I had no idea what a huge problem this was until it happened to me,” she explained, during an interview with Fox & Friends.
“I don’t want any other American family to go through what I’ve gone through the last year and a half of my life.”
But, despite her best efforts, she hasn’t yet been able to meet with Barack Obama, to discuss the issue of illegal immigration.
“I’ve written three letters to the President,” Mendoza explained. “It’s disheartening to see the people he does have at the White House.”
“When I was in Washington in July testifying in the Kate Steinle hearing, the Obamas had illegal students there to talk about the hardships they’ve overcome to get to college, and the very next day had illegal teachers at the White House and we were blocks away from the White House. And, we had been pleading with them to meet with us, to see our faces, to feel our pain and to hear our stories. And maybe understand this problem a little better and do something about it for Americans.”
So far, Obama has ignored all letters from Mary Anne Mendoza—but continues to invite illegal aliens into the White House to hear their stories.
