American angel families chant ‘build the wall’ as House speaker refuses to speak to them
A group of Angel families – American victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants – has stormed Nancy Pelosi’s office, urging her to support President Trump’s proposal for a wall to be constructed along the US Southern Border.
Joined by legislators and Women for Trump, the victims of illegal aliens marched on Capitol Hill chanting “build the wall.”
Carrying photographs of their loved ones, who they say were killed in Nancy Pelosi’s district by illegal immigrants, the group stood outside the House speaker’s office asking for a few minutes of her time.
According to members of the group, a spokesperson for Pelosi told them she was in a meeting and too busy to speak to them.
The group says they want to ask Nancy Pelosi and other senior Democrats to reconsider their position on immigration and border wall funding.

According to Breitbart, Americans who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegal aliens and because of open borders gathered on Capitol Hill Tuesday urging Congress to fund a wall along the U.S. southern border for border security.
Reps. Mo Brooks, Louie Gohmert, Matt Gaetz were among the several legislators gathered with the Angel families and Women for Trump in front of the U.S. Capitol Building.
The group wants to put faces to the statistics of Americans killed or injured due to illegal aliens and the drugs that flow in the U.S. at the southern border.
Among them were D.J. and Wendy Corcoran and their daughter Avery, Sabine Durden, Maureen Laquerre, Maureen Maloney, Mary Ann Mendoza, Kent Terry, and Susan Stevens, who have each lost a loved one.
Former Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tom Homan also accompanied the group.
After telling their stories and describing the dangers of a porous border, the group took to congressional offices and the Office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The partial federal government shutdown has become the longest in history as Democrats refuse to negotiate with President Donald Trump to provide funding for a southern border wall and border security that would allow for a bill to reopen the government.
