POLIZETTE — A small group of bereaved mothers went all the way to Speaker Paul Ryan’s doorstep over the weekend to demand answers — but were given only a cold shoulder.
The so-called “angel mothers,” those who lost children at the hands of illegal immigrants, declared House Speaker Paul Ryan to be “disqualified” from serving in public office as they stood outside his Janesville, Wisconsin, home on Saturday.
The four mothers held a press conference outside Ryan’s mansion alongside businessman Paul Nehlen, a challenger for Ryan’s Wisconsin seat in Congress this year. Holding pictures of their murdered children, the women shared the stories of their personal losses as they demanded answers from Ryan regarding his history of supporting an open borders policy.
But Ryan ignored the mothers as he stepped into his SUV and drove away from the scene.
“It was disturbing to see Paul Ryan flee these four grieving mothers,” Nehlen told LifeZette in a statement Monday. “He’s been ignoring them for years. He avoids their calls for border security and instead gives his full attention to the open borders agenda of his wealthy donors. We will not let one more innocent American die so Paul Ryan can satisfy his open borders donors.”
Maria Espinoza, the co-founder and national Director of The Remembrance Project — a nonprofit corporation that advocates for families whose loved ones were murdered or killed by illegal immigrants — attended the event alongside the mothers.
