A woman in California delivered powerful testimony last week arguing against SB-54, a measure which restricts local and state law enforcement agencies from cooperating with federal immigration officers.
“I’m also representing the angel mothers whose children have been slaughtered in our communities, especially cities like Salinas, Cali., and Santa Ana, Cali.”
“Article VI, Section 4 of the United States shall guarantee to every state in the nation a republican form [of government] and shall protect each against invasion and domestic violence,” Moreno stated.
“I have it on good authority, our side wins! Even with all that that you have, our side wins, because you have weeping mothers not only in California but throughout the United States now. It’s not here, it’s everywhere now.”
“Stop trying to blur the difference between illegal and legal. There’s a big difference. We’re Americans – we live the American culture and we have the American spirit. We don’t steal, we don’t lie and we don’t take other people’s things.”
“I am a victim of illegal immigration. I was molested as a child – as I know that you were Richard,” she says, addressing a board member. “How dare you side with the other side, how dare you. I was pregnant by 14. I had five children by the time I was 22 – by an illegal alien. And I married him. So my city is a ‘Sanctuary city.’ I live in fear, horror and terror.”
“We’re going to plaster our dead children’s pictures all over the state and we’re gonna let them know what government elected officials have let the slaughter of our children happen in California and all these cities. It’s a disgrace, a total disgrace. I ask you to vote ‘no’ on 54.”
SB-54 is currently still making its way through the California state senate.
