President Joe Biden didn't pay attention to the needs of Angel Families on November 1, and did not recognize the “National Day of Remembrance for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens” which was first announced by former President Trump.
In October of 2020, President Trump declared a proclamation to commemorate American citizens who were killed by illegal immigrants. In 2021, Biden was also apathetic about the day's events and instead stayed focused on campaigning alongside Florida Democrats Val Demings and Charlie Crist.
In the meantime, Trump welcomed Angel Mom Sabine Durden Coulter to Mar-a-Lago to talk about illegal immigration and the impact it has on American families such as hers. Durden Coulter's son Dominic suffered a fatal injury in 2012 when he was hit by an illegal immigrant Juan Zacarias Zzunan, a twice-convicted drunk driver who was in the sanctuary state of California and officials were unable to deport.
In the spring of this calendar year, Durden was been banned from Twitter for his comments on illegal immigration.
Biden's refusal to acknowledge Angel Families, the loved families of the victims of illegal aliens, is a sign that Biden's administration is trying to sever the shield of support that was imposed by Trump.
In 2017, Trump established an Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Victim Of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office to assist Angel Families navigate their cases as they navigate their way through the criminal justice system. In 2020, the hotline for VOICE received more than 700 calls from victims seeking assistance.
In the past year, Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) removed the VOICE office and implemented the Victims Engagement and Services Line (VESL) to assist illegal immigrants. Biden's VESL hotline will aid American victims, but will also provide assistance to illegal immigrants seeking U and T visas.
As Breitbart News reported exclusively, Biden's DHS has been in close contact with open border groups including connections to the billionaire George Soros — to inform them that illegal alien clients can use the VESL hotline and obtain visas if they claim they're victims of crime.
An increasing quantity of House and Senate Republicans have signed on to Rep. Ted Budd's (R-NC) “Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act” which was previously supported by President Trump. The bill would grant Angel Families the right to bring a lawsuit against a sanctuary city in the event that it helped protect immigrants from deportation and arrest by ICE.
Budd's bill now has 31 cosponsors . The legislation that is a part of it in the Senate is being submitted by Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and currently has 15 cosponsors.
