Dad Whose Child Was Killed By Illegal Alien Has Message For Media Covering Illegal Immigration
President Trump hosted Angel families at the White House Friday afternoon so they could tell their stories. An Angel parent is a parent of a child who was killed by an illegal alien.
No media in the room was ready for what father Steve Ronnebeck had to say. Ronnebeck lost his 21-year-old son Grant Ronnebeck to an illegal alien who shot him for a pack of cigarettes.
Ronnebeck told his emotional story of his son getting “executed” over a pack of cigarettes.
“Grant did everything he was supposed to do,” Ronnebeck said, “Gave him the cigarettes. The man went ahead and executed him and shot him point-blank in the face.”
Then Ronnebeck directly called out the media, asking why they don’t tell his story. “You don’t hear these stories, and some of our media won’t talk to you about it,” Ronnebeck said, “This is permanent separation. For his birthday, I go to his grave. … We set up a Christmas tree on Grant’s grave.”
Ronnebeck was not done with the media. “I wish some of our media had the same integrity as our president, our vice president, Director [of ICE] Homan, all of you in law enforcement,” Ronnebeck said, “I wish some of our media had the same integrity. I want to thank all of you, especially our law enforcement for what you do. Mr. President, Mr. Vice President, thank you.”
Ronnebeck concluded by saying, “This isn’t a problem that’s going away. It’s getting bigger.”
