(Tea Party PAC) – On Tuesday, a group of Angel Moms protested inside Nancy Pelosi’s Capitol Hill office. The Speaker of the House refused to meet with these grieving family members who have lost loved ones to illegal immigrant crime but go figure.
She’s completely refusing to agree to any budget proposal that includes funding for a wall.
“It’s a slap, it’s a stab, it’s a kick in the gut, in the groin,” said Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic hit and killed by an illegal alien in 2012, of Pelosi and other Democrats’ refusal to meet with her and other Angel Moms.

“It’s not a matter of if you’re going to be affected by illegal alien crime, it’s when you are going to be affected,” explained Mary Ann Mendoza, whose 32-year-old police officer son, Brandon Mendoza, was killed by a drunk illegal who was driving the wrong way on a highway in Mesa, Arizona.
Rose Tennent, a radio host who filmed the protest, asked the women how it felt to tell their stories only to have Nancy Pelosi’s door slammed in their face.
Many of the women answered that they felt “angry” and “insulted.”
“If you can talk all that talk, why can you walk all that walk,” said Durden of the Democrats’ scathing criticism for Trump’s border security proposals. “If you’re that tough, come see me. Come see all of us in one room. No press, just us, just for two minutes.”
“What’s interesting is, literally, there’s a wall between you and Nancy,” Tennent astutely pointed out.
Amy Kremer, an organizer for Women for Trump, explained in a Periscope video after the protest that not only had Pelosi refused to meet with the Angel Moms, but the women were also lied to about Pelosi not being in her office.
“Speaker Pelosi would not meet with the Angel Families,” she said. “As a matter of fact, they told us the speaker wasn’t there at that office and while we were there, somebody came in that had a private meeting with her and they escorted her back behind the wall!”

“So, there was a wall that Nancy Pelosi was on the other side of. We couldn’t get on the other side of that wall and she wouldn’t come and talk to us,” she added. Kremer also mentioned that Pelosi’ staffers were “rude” and “disrespectful” to the families that had gathered there.
Later on, the Angel Moms took a trip over to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office, requesting to speak with him over his objections to the border wall as well which, by the way, was something he supported in 2006 when he voted, along with Sens. Obama and Clinton, to fund a 700-mile, $50 billion over 25 years.

Women for Trump held a press conference on Capitol Hill Tuesday on border security with several families who have lost their loved ones to illegal alien crime.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and former ICE Director Tom Horman were among those speaking at the presser.
The Democrats still refuse to negotiate with President Trump on any legislation that would include the $5.7 billion Trump has requested for a border wall. We are now in the fourth week of the longest shutdown in U.S. history.
