Laura Wilkerson, the mother of a child slain by an illegal immigrant, said she wishes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi would do a “shut-up-a-thon.”


Rep. Pelosi delivered an 8-hour record-breaking House floor speech on Thursday about “dreamers” ahead of a vote on a long-term budget deal. Pelosi shared stories of people who are in the country illegally in the hopes of convincing Speaker Paul Ryan to include protections for DACA recipients in the deal.

Wilkerson, whose son was brutally murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2010, slammed Pelosi for putting illegal immigrants ahead of American citizens.

Wilkerson son’s Josh gave an illegal immigrant classmate a ride home from school one day, and in return, the immigrant tortured Josh, strangled him, beat him to death, and set his body on fire.

“You know, Nancy Pelosi’s talk-a-thon, I think I can speak for all angel parents that say, you know, we wish you would do a shut-up-a-thon,” Wilkerson said on Fox News. “You know, she just wasted her time, everybody’s time yesterday. She doesn’t seem to get it.”

“Why do you need to offer people sanctuary form the law? And you don’t know about it until it lands in your lap,” she asserted. “Nobody gets sanctuary from the law in this town, I don’t care what color you are or where you’re from.”
