Event scheduled to begin at 2:30 pm EDT
As the hulabaloo over separation of illegal alien children from their parents reaches a fever pitch, President Trump is meeting today at the White House with “Angel Families” — U.S. citizens whose loved ones were killed by illegal immigrants.
The president will once again put the spotlight on tragedies such as the death of Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco in 2015. The gunman had been deported several times but returned to the U.S.
Some “angel parents” whose children were killed by illegal immigrants have formed a grass-roots organization in California called Fight Sanctuary State, seeking to promote more cooperation between state and local authorities with federal immigration enforcement agents.
