As the migrant caravan from Central America continues to make its way toward the U.S. border, some Angel families are heading there with a caravan of their own. "We're going down there with a moms' caravan and Angel families, and we're going to be interviewing the locals because they're the ones right on the border, they're feeling the brunt of this," says angel mom Maria Espinoza with The Remembrance Project.
Espinoza's group is organizing an event in McAllen this Sunday to show support for enhanced border security and call attention to the dangers of illegal alien crime, while calling on President Trump to declare it a national day of remembrance for those killed by illegals. "We want all Americans to pray on Sunday November 4th," she says. "Pray for Americans who've been killed by people who shouldn't be here."
Fellow angel mom Laura Wilkerson, who lost her son to an illegal alien, is fully supportive of the president's move to send an additional 5,000 troops to the border to help stop the caravan. "I think (Trump) needs to do whatever it takes, and sooner better than later," she tells KTRH. Wilkerson believes America cannot risk even a small percentage of the caravan being dangerous criminals. "I'm certain that not everyone who comes here (illegally) is a killer, to think that I thought that would be absolutely false," she says. "But do you want to risk your child, your mother, your brother, your sister, for even one of them?"
