"Do You Feel as If the United States Has Let You Down?", the Father of Yet Another Victim of Illegal Entry Was Asked

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!


It is not the United States letting victims of illegal immigrants down

When the question, “do you feel the United States has let you down” was posed to the Father of yet another victim of an illegal immigrant, I thought:

“no it’s not the United States of America that has let them down.”

"it’s not the President of the United States, Donald Trump, allowing the potential for this to continually occur, that has let them down."

"it’s not the Republican Party nor the American people, that are okay with any of this. We are not okay with any of this and we want no part in continually letting them down."

It is the far gone, so far gone...they've fallen off the other side, Democratic Party, along with their supporters {foreign and domestic} and all who carry their water, such as mainstream and social media, who, repeatedly, let them down!

According to this Father, members of the Democratic Party, have not reached out to him or to any other members of his family, no not one, no not once!

I seriously doubt, they reach out to any of these families, so greatly affected, many completely devastated, by illegal entry and all that represents or by the 'special provisions' they, the Democratic Party, have and work so hard, to keep in place.

These provisions are in place by design, they exist, in order to protect the best interest of illegal criminal element, not the law-abiding citizen, the ones who do it right...and that's a fact!

I will take it even further, with each new devastating, heart-breaking, shouldn't-have-happened-here story to make its way into our hearts and minds, the Democratic Party has even more blood on their hands!

Working against the best interest of this Country

How do the Democratic Party and left leaning Judges, handle each and every protection put in place or each and every attempt to put protections in place?

Well, look no further than headline news, 'Federal Judge....{and here is where the different news outlets get creative with their headlines}

Federal Judge blocks...

Federal Judge halts...

Federal Judge shoots down...

Federal Judge stops, Trump!

They are jubilant about stopping Trump, that's their mission and everything else be damned!

Prove me wrong!

It matters not to them that Angel families are appearing on television or working to get their stories our there. So that they might appear in print; stories of their loved ones, killed by someone that shouldn't even be here...

and the stories are always similar, always heartbreaking, with the saddest possible ending

It is happening as non-ending caravans are working their way to our southern border.

Scroll to Continue

These aren't caravans of people that have gone through the ten step application process to become a citizen of the United States.

These aren't people that have passports and/or green cards and/or a permission slip in hand, with their own personal Ambassador escorting them into their new home.

They are not legally returning home to the States.

No, they've done none of that.

They haven't completed any 'process'.

They do not have any papers in their possession and yet...they believe, (they've been led to believe) they are entitled to entry and that they are justified in doing so, any which way they can.

Even when that means, they bypass all others attempting to enter legally, all others doing it the right way and even if that means, sneaking behind the backs of overworked border agents to make it into a sanctuary city.

They will use innocent children, if that's what it takes, to bypass our laws, in order to gain entry, in order to get one over on us....and I don't just mean one over the wall

The Democratic Party and these Federal Judges; the latest, a Barack Obama appointee, stopping the President at every turn, are complicit in every single, heartbreaking story shared to date or that has yet to be shared!

Kick them while they're down

Here's the real kicker.....President Trump's administration, via Homeland Security Secretary Neilsen, brokered this deal, which was stopped, therefore stalled, by this latest activist Judge. There are {were} terms, an agreement. Mexico's President Lopez-Obrador agreed to and has allowed for, those seeking asylum in the States, to stay in Mexico, while awaiting their court dates.

And yet....with terms in place, an agreement worked out, attempts to have protections in place, for all people of this Nation, an Obama appointee, Judge Jon Tigar (San Francisco) [blocks,halts, shuts down, stops] kicks...Angel families, while they are down!

Aren't they really kicking every single law-abiding American citizen, when they do these things over and over and over?

If not Tigar, another radical Judge playing politics from the bench, in order to stop President Trump from performing his duties; an oath to protect our borders, this Country, all citizens, our laws, is waiting in the wings, just down the hall, to the left!

The Democrats allegiance, it seems to me, is to all but, their constituents, all but, the citizens of the United States, all but, those who've done things the right way to enter in, assimilate and become a part of the U.S.A.


Our family came much too close for comfort, to becoming one of those families speaking out, telling the story of having a loved one harmed or worse, by a person here illegally.

Too close for comfort....

My daughter and her friend were stopped at a light, waiting to make a left turn and a person, here illegally, driving with much more than a slight buzz and without an i.d., driver's license, registration, insurance....without a care of giving a damn about anything or anyone, hit the back of her truck at full speed. THEN, he did not see fit (probably because he wasn't fit to do much of anything) to check on my daughter and her friend....instead, he fled the scene!

He was caught, but only because his car was no match for the truck my daughter was driving, well, completely stopped in. His car was as trashed as he and so both were found, not too far from the scene of the accident.

Thank God, they were spared, but what passionate as I am, I'd never stop telling the story...I've shared this story, multiple times and I will share multiple times more, because these stories must be shared.

There are consequences to the actions of these people (not all) but too many, breaking our laws, entering in and not caring in the least about my daughter, your son, my Dad, your Mom!

Why should they care, they're given a pass and then they witness an entire political party, along with radical Judges and biased news reporters, continually "shutting down" our President as he works to protect us and this Country!

They are welcomed by the open arms of liberal Mayors, offering them sanctuary, with a living to boot, seeing to it that they need not care to care,because they take precedence over all others.

Thank you Yves! Appreciated.

It was years ago, when my daughter was rear-ended, but with every new story of a life lost to an illegal, here without purpose, using us, made to feel above-the-law, by a certain political party, I am reminded of that night.

It could have so easily been us, telling our story to all that would listen!

Republican and Democratic politicians have dropped the ball many times over the years, when it comes to 'fixing' immigration, no doubt!

That's where Trump comes in!!!

BUT, he is undermined with every action, stalled at every turn!

savvydating on April 10, 2019:

We all hear your passion, AB, and I sympathize with you and all American families living on the border (and elsewhere). I do think that many immigrants come here out of real desperation. Perhaps some don't understand the concept of "waiting in line" and that our legal system might provide a path. I don't know. But Coyotes know and they take advantage of all opportunities to line their pockets.

That doesn't make illegal immigration good or right. In fact, it is bad. And so, I applaud President Trump for trying to fix this problem. That being said, my understanding is that some hard-core Republicans could have compromised the first time the bill for illegal immigration passed the House under this Administration.

But now, at this juncture, the Democrats will not give Trump a win on immigration or anything else. We have reached a dangerous impasse that has (already has) severe consequences for our nation-----as you so passionately described.

Thanks be to God that your daughter was spared. I feel as if the only thing we can do at this time is pray. Pray hard. Thank you for loving this nation and for being willing to call a spade a spade, no matter the situation.

Best line..."made more money and paid less in taxes", that's a win-win Eric! Congrats!

Even when our economy is booming, we can never get so comfortable that we forget to pay attention, that's for sure.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 10, 2019:

I just cannot put this mess on a party. Parties are supposed to kick butt against the other - by all means necessary.

It is folks that do criminal acts in order to curry favor with a party that are to blame.

I would never have thought that My POTUS would be so stinking squeaky clean. How did he do that? (Why do we leave out RBG?)

I did hear about some sitting politicians that claim they still have the smoking gun. Although it is strange to have a smoking gun with no crime.

Now how in the hell can a public servant withhold that "evidence" from a near two year investigation. What could be worse obstruction of justice and a willing accomplish to felony fraud?

OTOH that is just the way it is. But who ever is really running my country. Good job. Even my crazy ass West/left Coast.

By the by - wife tax preparer for HRB says we made more and paid less in taxes for last year.

I live in a country where I need to pay attention so as not to get obese. That is crazy. I have the best public "parks" in the world. Am I such a lazy American?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 10, 2019:

They went with the crowd, that's for darn sure and they indeed made history, he, Obama, was elected to office.....twice!

Not sure what kind of "change" they were hoping for in the best Country that God gave man, but then many of the same people that elected him are supporting their Party, no matter where they take them! Scary!

Shannon Henry from Texas on April 10, 2019:

Honestly, many of the candidates on both sides speak a good game. You have to listen carefully to discern the truth or research he rest of what hey stand for. But sometimes I wonder who and why? Obama, for seemed as if people just voted for him for the sake of making history. And other people voted for his promises of change, hoping for the best. And still others voted for him just to go with the crowd.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 10, 2019:

Hi Shannon, who IS putting radicals into office? Good question!

Who put Ilhan Omar (D) Minnesota into office? What are her intentions? Who are her constituents and what are their intentions?

Does she recognize the U.S. Constitution or does she only recognize Sharia law?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 10, 2019:

Hi Pop, they are pathetic! Look no further than Rep. Omar (D) Minnesota to see just how pathetic! She brushed aside the attack on U.S. soil on 9-11-2001 as if it was NOTHING! To quote Ms. Omar, "some people did something". If we continue to elect people like her into office, we'll start hearing/seeing things such as, 9-11 never happened, it was made up, we deserved haters have always said about the Holocaust.

Shannon Henry from Texas on April 10, 2019:

Haha. I'm a Devil's Advocate more often than you may imagine. I told you, I don't disagree with your points about what the Democrats are doing and trying to do. Just the statement. If it were my child killed by someone not only here illegally but allowed to stay here knowing full well he's here illegally, I think I would feel very let down by my country. After all, who put those radical people in office? Probably some of the people I know and could very well love helped vote them in. That's when it's time to vote differently the next time. But are we (this time I do mean the collective whole)?

breakfastpop on April 10, 2019:

You hit the nail on the head, and told the absolute truth about this nightmare. I saw on tv that our senators walked out when a border patrol agent was speaking. The Dems are ruining this nation. They care, as you pointed out, about power and nothing else. I believe they should all be held in contempt. I also believe they should forfeit their salary. They are not doing the job they were elected to do.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 10, 2019:

Yes Shannon, I believe that the Democratic Party (which has a horrible history to begin with) has been infiltrated by the most radical of the radical and they...are calling the shots. I'll not give the Republican Party a pass, they are far from perfect, but I'll not lump them in with Dems. They, at least, take a stand for LIFE, for our God-given RIGHTs, that the left continually tries to steal. They, the right, aren't in the control and conquer category/column, where the left lives.

P.S. Who are you and what have you done with Shannon. ;)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 10, 2019:

I agree Eric and I am so glad that Barr will pursue a case to find out the; who, what, when, where, the pathetic and desperate attempt to take out POTUS.

Shannon Henry from Texas on April 10, 2019:

No, I think those comparisons are apples and oranges. It's not even the same as radicalized terrorist groups. Look at it as if you were a foreign outsider trying to follow American politics. From that perspective, is the left really just a radical group?

While I don't necessarily blame the United States as an entity (meaning all people collectively), the government is responsible for making the laws that allow things like sanctuary cities to exist and for not securing the country better.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 10, 2019:

I will just use "dark state" to label the bad guys and dolls that let themselves go to hell on earth. They fully chose a path away from right and wrong and love and integrity.

I just go with sedition and treason. Yes you can use rhetoric in politics, yes you can try to beat someone with words.

Here goes as quick as I can do it. "Conspiracy" gets most high profile bad guys. If you hatch a plan with two or more to do criminal conduct that is conspiracy? Nope/. It needs an act in furtherance of the plan and criminal conduct.

In a clearly concerted action plan. The dark state folks acted in furtherance of trying to unseat a POTUS. Leave politicians out of it. Who cares?

I kind of go a strange route on these bad guys. They are no longer US citizens.

Please excuse my comments as I do not follow "news". "News" to me means we have a new PTA president ;-)

So I just read things like this rather than listen to a pundit. 18 U.S. Code § 2381. Treason

Hanging a treasonous bastard that caused harm is in our law.

"Let us bless each other in brutal and honest truth of facts, not theories or a bent, but real facts". (ED to a Jury in 1986)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 10, 2019:

Blaming the U.S. for the behavior of a radicalized agenda-driven political party is like blaming the gun and ignoring the shooter, don't you think?

We'll agree to disagree on this!

Shannon Henry from Texas on April 09, 2019:

I haven't bread your comments yet because I am dealing with some things bat home that have my attention now that evening has set in, but I will say that I disagree with you this time. Not with your major points, but with the statement that it isn't the US letting people down. Yes, it is. Because the Democratic Party is composed of American citizens just the same as the Republican Party is. Those two major parties have controlling power and they both ARE represent the United States as a government. If one side makes the other look bad, it's still the US as a whole to blame. After all, we the citizens, structured our government that way.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 09, 2019:

Barr has no choice, heads need to roll!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 09, 2019:

So true, Mexico needs to be as accommodating as they possibly can. Mexico’s President has his work cut out for him, as the middle man. I don’t think anyone envys him that post.

The Logician from then to now on on April 09, 2019:

Attorney General Bill Barr has assembled a "team" to investigate the origins of the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, an administration official briefed on the situation told Fox News on Tuesday.

Hmmm, now we'll get to the bottom of how the FBI let us down! Unlike the Mueller investigation there is evidence of a crime or this "team" would not be assembled - Barr is going to show them how an investigation should be done!

The Logician from then to now on on April 09, 2019:

I guarantee Mexico will do whatever Trump wants to keep the border from being shut down. Our economy can take a hit the way it's booming, theirs can't. And on top of that a closed border means all these "asylum" seekers will be stuck in Mexico. We have no room for them so what do you think Mexico is going to do with them? But you won't hear the media even mention any of this.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 09, 2019:

Thanks for welcoming Mr. Rigs, T.

I’ll add, if it takes shutting down the border...again, until the Dems come to their senses....hmmm maybe I should go a different direction, if it takes shutting it down, to save lives, then by all means President Trump shut it down!

The Logician from then to now on on April 09, 2019:

Hey, Mr Rigs! Welcome to hub pages. Good start for only being here for 30 some minutes!

Wait a minute, the people invading the border are looking for asylum, not jobs.

Yeah those 1%ers are the root of all evil. I wonder why they actually pay 40% of all the tax revenue! They must be pretty stupid.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 09, 2019:

Hi Eric, please thank your neighbor for his service to this great Country of ours, what a great role model for your son.

I am not worthy of a salute, but all that serve, have served are, so I will pass that “salute” on to them.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on April 09, 2019:

Hi T, thank you and hear, hear, I agree, Dems are the great.....let downers!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 09, 2019:

Just a note for snowflakes. I would love a "metoo" movement like this;

Real Men and Women are never let down. They build up and have a blast doing it.

"Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country"

AB Williams you serve with distinction and I salute you.

mr rigs on April 09, 2019:

Can't USA shut the southern borders down Cali, Texas, New Mexico USA doesn’t need all this people slaving the children across the border the Business owners and 1 percenters that hire them so they can get fast cars, bigger house, and faster jets so the people and their kids who were born here can't jet jobs plus USA doesn’t need the south America countries the need us. so be an American shutter down shutter down trump

The Logician from then to now on on April 09, 2019:

Semper !

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 09, 2019:

I will read again in double time. My new neighbor Guillermo 5.5 at Fort Benning. Mechanic for Special Forces. Dad was born in Mexico. We will party together. My son will love a real man. Proud and tall. I asked him lemons from his tree -- He just yelled "incoming" and hit me in the head. I got a sore head and lemonade .. he got a laugh.

My country has never let me down. Refuse to let my neighbor down. One house at a time is my country.

The Logician from then to now on on April 09, 2019:

AB you have nailed it on this one!

And when hasn't the Democrat party let us down?

They defended slavery,

started the Civil War,

founded the KKK,

and fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history!

So why not continue to try to destroy America, make it socialist and keep it from becoming great again?

A leopard can't change it's spots!
