A group of grieving mothers whose children were killed by illegal aliens attended a press conference Saturday in front of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s “border wall” at his home in Wisconsin.
The “angel moms” expressed their endorsement for Ryan’s challenger, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, who is running against him in Wisconsin’s August 9th primary election.
Paul Ryan has made it clear he supports amnesty for illegal aliens, and the mothers said he has done nothing to secure the border and stop illegal immigration – while maintaining a “border wall” around his own property. They said they deserved to be able to give their children the same security Ryan gives his children.
After sharing their personal stories of their murdered children, the mothers laid out large banners with photos of their children in front of Ryan’s border wall.
Also attending the press conference were several volunteers from the Paul Nehlen campaign.
The mothers then picked up the banners to deliver them to Ryan. Just as they started to walk toward his home with the photos, Ryan and his security team sped away in two black SUV’s.
“I saw Ryan on the back porch as the banners were being picked up and folded up,” said Tania Vojvodic, a volunteer with the campaign. “As I was walking with the mothers to the front, he entered into the back door of the house and slammed it. A few minutes later I saw him get into an SUV that departed with another behind it.”
During the press conference, Ryan’s security team appeared to have called for backup, as they said three state police cars and additional officers showed up to monitor the situation.
“I wasn’t surprised, but I was hurt,” said angel mom, Laura Wilkerson, whose 18-year-old son was tortured to death by an illegal alien.
“We were there because we wanted Ryan to realize what’s happened to our kids and our families. I don’t understand it– Ryan didn’t have the time or courage to talk to four moms who had lost their kids? It would have taken him all of three minutes to come outside and say hello and say sorry and listen to our stories or hear the changes we’d like to see put in place to better secure our border. But I guess, at this point, this doesn’t surprise me coming from Ryan. He’s had 18 years to do something about it if he were really worried about immigration, and he has not. This won’t work anymore. It’s time to replace him with someone that will do something for American families.”
“They were asked why did they go to Ryan’s home to hold the press conference. The mothers of children murdered by illegal immigrants have felt ignored by Ryan. He could have seized his opportunity, walked over and offered his condolences to those mothers, and he chose to drive away instead. An honorable man would have told his security team, ‘Give me a moment, I need to address this.’ Instead, he ditched them at his front door,” said Vojvodic.
“Paul Ryan has ignored our Angel Moms and Dads for far too long,” Paul Nehlen said during the press conference. “We are here today to say, ‘Not One More.’ We will not tolerate one more death of an innocent American because Paul Ryan wants to satisfy his donors. We will not let one more family be torn apart by open borders.”
A security vehicle pulled up while the group was still there, and gathered up all the banners to get them out of sight.
