The “Angel Moms” of two American sons killed by illegal aliens told The Daily Caller how they felt about the media coverage of migrant parents separated from their children at the border.
The mothers told TheDC that there was huge hypocrisy in the mainstream media focusing on migrant parents instead of American parents who were permanently separated from their children after those children were killed by illegal aliens.
“There is hypocrisy in many ways. The total disregard for American families ripped apart because of illegal criminals, the total lack of concern for children in the U.S. being raped in North Carolina by illegals at disgusting numbers (some months over 400 child rapes by illegals), no concern [for] homeless American children or Veterans who would do anything to have what’s provided [to] these children. Yet, our politicians call it inhumane treatment. Would they rather these kids coming across our borders stay with the adults who aren’t their biological parents but have kidnapped them to get across the border as a ‘family unit?'” Mary Ann Mendoza told TheDC.
Mendoza’s story is absolutely heartbreaking.
Her son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, was killed by an illegal alien who was drunk driving and hit him head-on.
On her website, the Sgt. Brandon Mendoza Memorial Foundation, she writes:
“My name is Mary Ann Mendoza and my life course has been changed forever.
My son, Sgt Brandon Mendoza, was killed on May 12, 2014 in a violent head on collision. He was killed by a 3 times the legal limit drunk and high on meth ILLEGAL CRIMINAL! He had driven 35 MILES the wrong way on four different freeways before slamming head-on into my son’s car. My son had just finished his shift and was heading home after working to keep Mesa citizens safe and his community crime free when his life was taken so tragically.”
“It’s all about sensational headlines,” she also told this reporter. “They have no real concern for these kids. It’s just another way to make this administration look bad.”

“Worse things happened to these kids was Obama was president and [the media] was crickets. In closing, the fact that my son was collateral damage and totally disregarded to support their agenda is hypocrisy at its best. My dead son, a fellow American, is nothing to them! This isn’t worth their time because it would disprove their theory that we need illegal aliens here and we don’t need a border wall,” she added.
Another Angel Mom, Sabine Durden, lost her son Dominic to a motorcycle accident when he was struck by an illegal alien.
The criminal alien who killed Dominic Durden was also reportedly “barely under the legal limit” while driving that day.
Sabine Durden told TheDC, “The hypocrisy is astonishing. The MSM has ignored many of us victims of illegal alien crime for so long. They avoid us like pests. If it weren’t for President Trump, no one would even know much about us. He gave my son a voice that was taken by an illegal. And I’m forever thankful to him for that and for bringing the issue of illegal alien invasion to the forefront. It’s deeply hurtful to see how MSM now ‘cares’ so much for children separated from their parents while continuing to ignore thousands of us separated by death, forever.”
Durden spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, as did Mendoza.
“Not one of the Dems has reached out since they heard about my son’s death. Not one spoke publicly about American victims of illegals. Their fake grandstanding for children is for show and absent of compassion because they didn’t do any of this during Obama’s presidency. We have 1.6 million homeless children, inner cities destroyed and American children in need, homeless veterans and mentally ill people all on their own. No word about them from the left,” she continued.
“Yet they stumble over each other to get to a detention center with their camera crews behind them. They yell and show outrage over illegal aliens who placed themselves in this position. They call them immigrants, which is insulting to true immigrants like me,” she also told TheDC.
“They don’t go to jails and prisons where Americans who committed a crime are separated from their children. They didn’t go run and shown outrage when Obama had illegal alien kids in cages. The Dems are losing their voting base and need illegals to fill those spots. They are willing to step over dead Americans to get their amnesty. They continue to put out the welcome mat for more illegals to come by creating Sanctuary cities and states,” she added.

Durden also added that she has faced backlash for standing against illegal immigration.
“I get called racist, Nazi and my late son was referred to as ‘roadkill’ by an ‘anti-Trumper.’ All this is flamed by the leaders on the left. They are ignoring their own citizens who will never see or touch their child ever again to protect and speak for illegals who broke our laws.”
“What a rude awakening to now have to spend the rest of my life without my only child — my best friend, my heartbeat — because illegal aliens are more important and better protected and get special treatment by the law.”
