(CNSNews.com) – “My son is dead because politicians and local jurisdictions have put illegal aliens ahead of American citizens,” a grieving mother told a gathering at the National Press Club on Tuesday.
“Sadly, more often than not, our legal system holds the criminal aliens less accountable than Americans, leaving families being victimized,” Maloney said. “Matthew paid the ultimate price. I am permanently separated from my son.”
She called it “outrageous” that some politicians and judges “are willing to protect the illegal aliens at the expense of American citizens.”
Maloney was speaking at the launch of a group called Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC), which represents people like herself who have lost loved ones because of the actions of illegal aliens. The group will focus on legislation, education and public policy.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), the guest of honor at the AVIAC launch, is a longtime advocate of the rule of law:
“These families are the equivalent of Gold Star Families,” King said. “They’ve lost their loved ones because we didn’t do our job in enforcing the law.”
