We at American Rattlesnake would like to wish all of our followers a very contented and happy Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, there are many Americans who are pained by the absence of loved ones this holiday, including the family of Marizela Perez. More than eight months after this vivacious, precocious University of Washington student disappeared from her campus in Seattle, she remains missing. Michelle Malkin has a deeply moving meditation on the trauma, frustrations, and unexpected blessings that her family has experienced in their search for her cousin, which I strongly recommend reading.
I also urge everyone to visit Find Marizela, a website dedicated to documenting the ongoing search for Marizela Perez. It cant be forgotten that on this day of giving thanks there are many who wont be able to celebrate with their flesh and blood because their brother, or sister, or mother, or aunt, or uncle, is no longer with us. The family of young Dustin Inman, a sixteen year-old cut down by an illegal alien with a Matricula Consular ID, will have one less place setting this Thanksgiving.
Andrew Ostroy, the husband of the late filmmaker and actress Adrienne Shelly, has a daughter who will never get to celebrate with her mother on this day. Why? Because an unscrupulous construction company named Bradford General Contractors, although by now probably operating under a different name, employed an illegal alien from Ecuador named Diego Pillco. Someone who would murder Mrs. Shelly in cold blood, then attempt to pass her death off as a suicide-a mendacious ploy that would have succeeded, had it not been for the tenacity and unyielding love of her husband.
