The Donald Trump campaign is running a powerful television advertisement that features Laura Wilkerson.
The Texas mother’s son Joshua was killed in 2010 by an illegal alien. In the ad, Wilkerson describes the horrible way her son was beaten and murdered by an illegal alien:
The man who murdered Joshua is an illegal alien and should not have been here. The killer hit him in the head with a closet rod so hard it broke into four pieces and then he took him to a field and doused him with gasoline and set him on fire. It was the hardest day of my life.
Wilkerson goes on to say, “Hillary Clinton’s border policy is going to allow people into the country just like the one who murdered my son.”
One of the central themes of Donald Trump’s campaign has been his strong stance against illegal immigration.
Wilkerson’s heartbreaking story has been echoed many times across the country. Donald Trump on many occasions has featured mothers and other family members of those killed by illegal aliens, also known as “angel moms,” at his rallies. Many times these families stories have been widely ignored by the media.
Trump has given them a voice. “Now is the time for these voices to be heard,” Trump said during a rally in Phoenix Arizona.
In late August, according to Breitbart News’ Michelle Moons, Trump said:
What we do know, despite the lack of media curiosity, is that Hillary Clinton promises a radical amnesty combined with a radical reduction in immigration enforcement, just ask the Border Patrol about Hillary Clinton, you won’t like what you’re hearing. The result will be millions more illegal immigrants, thousands of more violent, horrible crimes and total chaos and lawlessness. That’s what gonna happen as sure as you’re standing there.
