(National Sentinel)Â Classless: When Democrats showed President Donald J. Trump disrespectÂ over his comments regarding illegal immigration at his State of the Union Address on Tuesday, they also disrespected the parents of two daughters who were murdered MS-13 gang members in the U.S. illegally.
Brentwood, New York teenagers Kayla Cuevas and Nisa Mickens, childhood friends, were both killed in September 2016, galvanizing their community and local law enforcement. The gang members chased the girls down and struck them repeatedly with baseball bats and a machete.
Their parents,Â Kayla and Nisaâ€™s parents, Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, were invited by the president to sit alongside first lady Melania Trump during his SOTU address.
“On Tuesday night when the President honored the parents of Kayla and Nisa and the victims of illegal immigrant violence the Democrats groaned and sat on their hands,”Â The Gateway PunditÂ reported. “This was a shocking display â€“ even for todayâ€™s Democrats.”
On Wednesday,Â Fox News host Laura Ingraham invited two of the parents,Â Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, on her program to discuss what some Democrats in the chamber did as Trump honored both daughters while railing against illegal immigration.
“I thought it was very disrespectful,” Mickens said. “For the simple fact that the Democrats who were there and did not stand up, they were African-Americans.
“So that hurt me a lotâ€¦ Regardless of how they feel about the president, they should show the respect, because I would show them the respect if that was their loved one,” he added.
