An Open Letter to Mr. Jorge Ramos
I am writing to you not as a activist or advocate.
Not writing to you as a political person from one side or the other.
I am simply writing to you as a mother to a father.
You see, my only child, my 30 year old son Dominic Durden was killed on 7-12-12. I not only lost my best friend and my buddy that day, but I also lost my future and everything great that he would have brought to my life. I will never have grandchildren or be a mother in law.
There will be no more Holidays, vacations or birthdays with him. It all ended on that horrific day.
What makes it even harder to bare and to deal with each day is the fact that my only child was killed by an illegal that has been here for many years, long arrest record, including a felony conviction and 2 DUI’s. That man had more breaks from the law and was never deported.
Since the death of my boy I have met many other families who lost loved ones to illegals. I also receive emails and messages from many who lost so senselessly because of our broken immigration system.
And I talked to and met with Kate Steinle’s family.
I also learned that every year 1200 to 1500 U.S. Citizens get killed by illegals.
So I am trying to figure out where your statements and research come from.
You don’t use the term ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. You just use the term IMMIGRANT.
That’s offensive to me as a legal immigrant and many others who came here he legal way.
You are upset that Kate’s Law ” is completely unfair to millions of People for what one or two people have done”. Are you serious?
Again Mr. Ramos, how can you say that, knowing that illegal aliens ( yes, I will continue to use that word) killed thousands of innocent Americans over the last few years and continue to do so.
I am highly offended that you consider yourself a journalist and you continue to downplay the severity and seriousness of crimes committed by illegals.
You have a daughter and want her to enjoy life and grow old. Imagine your daughter being killed by an illegal.
Heartbreaking, isn’t it?
Something I have to deal and live with 24/7.
