Earlier this month the Examiner published an article: More than 100 North Carolinians have been killed by illegal aliens. As Obama rekindles a fresh push for Amnesty and as Veterans’ Day approaches, I would like to highlight the stories of veterans killed by illegal aliens. Because our government refuses to enforce current immigration law and refuses to protect and seal our borders, these individuals who served their country with honor were killed by criminals who never should have been in the country. The Amnesty pushers are telling you these criminals just came here for a better life. Were these murders just good, hard-working folks like you and me? Hardly.
It is a tragedy when anyone becomes the victim of violent crime. It is all the more shameful when the criminal is an illegal alien flying under the radar and given cover by the government. These American veterans who were killed volunteered to protect the rest of us from all enemies foreign and domestic. They signed a blank check valued up to and including their lives to keep that oath, but they were not killed in the line of duty on the battlefield. They were shamefully murdered in the streets of North Carolina.
