It takes a lot of courage to speak out in front of a state senate about an issue that you vehemently disagree with. That’s even more true when you’re essentially facing off against a stacked deck.
Liberal leadership in the state of California continues to tout its desires for ‘sanctuary’ status as the will of the people that it represents. While that may be true for some folks, it’s not true for all of them.
That gets swept under the carpet as the narrative is advanced. Lupe Australia Maureen Moreno gave members of the state senate little choice but to listen to what she had to say.
As you’ll see in this powerful You Tube video, she delivered some absolutely gripping testimony that demonstrates how not everyone is on board with sanctuary policies in the state.
My name is Lupe Australia Maureen Moreno. My father was a Mexican, my mother was a Tejano. I’m here representing my sister Angie whose son was murdered a block 0:20 away from my mother’s home 25 years ago. I don’t think he was the first victim. We were the first families to speak out in the state of California. You know I also am representing the angel mothers whose children have been slaughtered and murdered in our communities especially cities like Salinas California and Santa Ana California Salinas an unofficial sanctuary city.
Moreno would go on to passionately explain how the liberal narrative is woefully misguided, and there’s a ton of families that concur with her line of thinking.
You have weeping mother’s not only in California but throughout the United States now! It’s not here it’s everywhere now! Stop trying to blend the difference between illegal and legal. There’s a big difference. We’re Americans! We live in 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. This man that was up here crying because he was locked up or something! These mothers, these families, their children are gone forever and can’t to be buried throughout California & the United States.
