MESA, AZ (CBS5) - The mother of a fallen Mesa officer is writing President Barack Obama regarding illegal immigrants in the U.S.
Mary Ann Mendoza's son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza was killed after an illegal immigrant was driving the wrong way on the road and hit Mendoza's vehicle head on.
Mary Ann Mendoza released the following letter:
"I am writing this letter to you regarding illegal immigrants.
"As a tax paying, law abiding citizen of the United States, I WANT my voice heard on this issue. My son, Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, an officer who was with the City of Mesa, Arizona police department, was killed in a tragic head on collision on May 12, 2014 by a wrong way driver on our freeways. This man happened to be an illegal immigrant, was in this country illegally, convicted of previous crimes, no Social Security number, no valid driver's license BUT he had purchased a vehicle and registered it to drive in Maricopa County Arizona.
"I had my son's life STOLEN from me by a man who didn't value his life, was 3X the legal limit drunk, was high on Meth, drove for over 35 miles THE WRONG WAY on 4 different freeways and had NO BUSINESS BEING IN THIS COUNTRY!!!
"The Federal Government knew he, Raul Silva Corona , was an illegal immigrant when he was convicted on crimes in 1994 in Colorado. The prosecutors were "lenient" on him and several charges were dismissed. When he was convicted of these crimes and 1994 and the government knew he was in the country illegally, why wasn't he deported? Why are any of these illegal criminals in this country ??

"All you have to do is Google " Sgt/Officer Brandon Mendoza" and you will have plenty of reading material about my wonderful son who had just passed his Sergeant's exam to become a Sgt. The Chief of Police posthumously promoted him during the week of his funeral but that highlight of his life was stolen from him!!! He was officer of the year last year. Officer of the quarter for the first quarter of 2014. He was only 32 years old and had done more in his life than most of us have done in a lifetime!
"I am going to have my voice heard and I want to you to know what my personal feeling is on whether CRIMINAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS should be allowed in this country. I have been DIRECTLY affected by this. I am sure if your life had been affected like mine has been, you would have a different view of this situation. I have lived in Arizona most of my life. My son, Brandon Mendoza, was half Hispanic. It's not the color of skin that my son or I see, it's the person and how they conduct their lives. If you can't enter this country legally then you shouldn't be here. If you commit crimes, you should pay the time any of us as US Citizens would have to serve. Letting these illegal criminals out of our jails before their time is served and turning them loose on the streets to commit further crimes and KILL our loved ones is NOT ACCEPTABLE TO ME!! AND it shouldn't be acceptable to any US Citizen. Mr. President, you don't have the right to make this decision yourself......I have a say, even if it is for one moment. Maybe that one moment will light a spark with another citizen who can then light a candle, who can then light a bonfire, who can then light a city up and so on. My light has just been lit and I am not going to back down when so many of these illegal immigrants have more rights than we do. My son's death will not be ignored as another statistic.
"I want laws to change that would not allow illegal immigrants to purchase vehicles in our country and register them to drive them in our states WITHOUT having driver's licenses to drive them legally. How is this happening??? I want laws changed that will force the removal of illegal immigrants who break our laws. This man, this repeated law breaker, was allowed to be released and he continued breaking the laws in our country until what???? UNTIL HE WAS STOPPED BY MY SON IN A HEAD ON COLLISION THAT NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED!!!! HE KILLED AN OFFICER OF THE LAW AS HIS LAST ACT!!! When are you going to see the flip side to this issue? When will you realize the hurt and pain and destruction these illegal immigrants who break the law will continue to cause???? Until you live in a state that deals with this on a daily basis, you will not understand it.
"I want answers that make sense. I want answers from you personally as to why this criminal was allowed to stay in our country until he took my son's life.
"Mary Ann Mendoza" In my opinion Obama will never see this and it will be pitched in the trash or if did read -it, it shall very quickly be out of sight -out of mind. Because Obama does not care about this woman or her son.
Good Luck at getting any kind of answer from the Commode In Chief other than standard boiler-plate “I’m sorry for your loss” letter.
They aren’t IMMIGRANTS!!!!!
Agree. Immigrant my butt. Sneaking across that border is a crime. He is a foreign national on American soil illegally, therefore an International criminal.
The Middle East is literally exploding before our eyes and another Israeli-Paliwog collision seems coming. China and its maritime neighbors seem to be in the early stages of hostilities, the Ukraine/Russian imbroglio has potential for a real European conflict and finally the southern border is being swarmed by tens of thousands of Dreamers. The Mahdi demonstrates his cool by playing pool amid dope smokers to reflect that Joe Kool has everything taken care of and there is no reason to worry. I think at this time the Mahdi has become the Sorcerers Apprentice and events are out of his control and he really doesn't have a clue and just hopes they will burn themselves out rather than become a raging conflagration. That is where we are, the moment of the 3 AM phone call.
If the Impostor in Chief were an honorable man, which he shows no signs of being, he might be affected in some way by Mrs. Mendoza’s plea. But being who and what he is, he has put layers of bureaucrats between himself and the grieving mothers of our Country, and therefore will never see the letter, nor would he give a d@mn if he did see it.
If they don’t want to call them illegal aliens, which is the official government term, I’d be fine with illegal border crossers. Criminals would work, too.
Sad to read what happened to this lady’s son
Illegal Alien Amnesty is Anti American Bigotry
No.. he won’t send a sorry for your loss letter.
She’ll get a notice of audit from the IRS and a fund raising letter from the DNC.
how bout.. “foreign invaders from a hostile country”?? has a nice ring to it.
A waste of time and ink. Illegal alien invaders are some of Barry’s favorite people. It’s Americans he has a problem with.
Rush calls them “undocumented democrats.”
I call them Illegal Invaders.
They eventually become Undocumented Democrats.
That’s why we have Motor Voter, the biggest Voter Fraud Scheme ever devised and it worked like a charm.
How many does this make? I can’t even begin to keep up with the body count.
Condolences and sympathies. However, Obama never saw this letter. One of his flunky apparatchiks filed it away and probably sent her an autographed “Hope and Change” picture back.
He doesn’t care about things like this.
