President Trump brought Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas, two teenage girls who were savagely beaten to death by MS-13 gang members, to attend his State of the Union address earlier this week.
The President has long been advocating a platform that would curtail the proliferation of violent gangs such as MS-13 in America through stronger methods of curtailing illegal immigration.
Such tactics include funding a border wall to stop the flow of drugs and criminal illegal aliens from crossing into the United States.
The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members.

President Trump took time to acknowledge the girls, Mickens and Cuevas, and their tragic story, during his address.
“Six members of the savage gang MS-13 have been charged with Kayla and Nisa’s murders,” he explained. “Many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors ‑- and wound up in Kayla and Nisa’s high school.”
“Evelyn, Elizabeth, Freddy, and Robert: Tonight, everyone in this chamber is praying for you. Everyone in America is grieving for you. And 320 million hearts are breaking for you. We cannot imagine the depth of your sorrow, but we can make sure that other families never have to endure this pain.”
Lawmakers rose to applaud the parents and share in their grief. Well, most did. The Democrat side of the chamber sat on their hands, refusing to cheer for anything President Trump said.
Worse, they actually groaned when the parents were announced by the President.
Surprisingly, Robert Mickens, father of Nisa, didn’t think that was a very respectful display by Democrats, and he called them out in a big way.

“Regardless of how they feel about the President, they should show the respect, because I would show them the respect if that was their loved one,” Mickens said.
While the President is inviting heartbroken family members of victims of gang violence, Democrats are inviting … you guessed it … illegals!

He also specifically called out black Democrats who refused to acknowledge his daughter’s death.
“I thought it was very disrespectful,” Mickens railed. “For the simple fact that the Democrats who were there and did not stand up, they were African-Americans.”
More proof that Democrats don’t value black lives. Not all black lives matter in their view. Only the lives of illegal immigrants – future voters – matter to them at this point.
