Kirsters Baish| President Trump’s inspirational State of the Union Address last week was one for the history books. He honored Robert Mickens and Evelyn Rodriguez. Mickens and Rodriguez are the parents of Kayla Mickens, a teenage girl who was brutally murdered by the MS-13 gang.
The members of the MS-13 gang were in the United States illegally. President Trump felt it was necessary to remind Americans just how the democrat’s push for open borders and the protection of illegal immigrants can actually mean the loss of American lives.
In what can only be described as one of the most disgusting displays of disrespect for the deceased, a good portion of democrats did not stand. They were basically saying that they respected illegal immigrants more than a legal citizen of the United States of America. Kayla’s father was extremely angered by the actions of the dems who chose to sit. Robert Mickens decided to go on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham’s show and let America know just how he felt about the whole situation.
Mickens stated, “I thought it was very disrespectful for the simple fact the Democrats there who did not stand up were African Americans. So that hurts me a lot to show me that they did not have the respect to honor what just happened to our lives and to American’s lives. It’s not right. Regardless of how they feel about the President, just show the respect because I would have shown the respect if that was their loved one.”

It’s horrific just how heartless the left can be when they claim to be everyone’s best friend. All the left really cares about is votes, even if that means the loss of American lives.
