President Donald Trump is fighting for U.S. citizens and seeking to prevent further needless deaths at the hands of illegal immigrants by enforcing immigration laws and pushing for a border wall.
But the Democrats’ new talking point — as well as many members of the mainstream media’s — is calling the illegal immigration and border crisis a “manufactured crisis” that the GOP designed to force the funding of Trump’s border wall.
The Ohio Jobs and Justice PAC (OJJPAC) released a list of victims illegal immigrants killed in the U.S. with descriptions of the crimes and pictures of the victims, showing that these deaths were not manufactured in the slightest.
Trump delivered his first Oval Office address on Tuesday evening, which the major TV networks carried during prime time. The address occurred amid a partial government shutdown, which resulted from Democrats’ refusal to give Trump the $5 billion in border wall funding he has demanded.
The president asked Democrats to join Republicans in combatting the “growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.”
Trump asked the congressional Democrats, “How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?”
“Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now,” Trump warned.
But Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) are still refusing to budge on border wall funding and refuse to see the need for a wall.
The parents of Pierce Corcoran (pictured above), a 22-year-old Tennessean who died after an illegal immigrant struck him by swerving into oncoming traffic, told Fox News host Laura Ingraham Thursday on “The Ingraham Angle” that they were outraged at Democrats for calling the border crisis “manufactured.”
“It’s real. And it really ticks me off when I see Pelosi acting like a three-year-old and saying that it’s fabricated,” D.J. Corcoran said. “[Pierce] is dead. His death is real … It’s not fabricated. And he died at the hands of an illegal immigrant.”
Wendy Corcoran said Democrats “just don’t get that someone has died at the hands of someone else that shouldn’t have been here,” adding that “our government has failed us.”
OJJPAC included Pierce Corcoran’s picture at the top of its list of victims.
“These deaths could have been prevented if Congress and Executive branch would have secured our border and enforced U.S. immigration laws,” OJJPAC founder Steve Salvi said in a statement with the list.
