The groups The Remember 1986 Coalition and The Remembrance Project will hold a National Day of Remembrance Candlelight Vigil on November 3rd in Phoenix. Arizonans who have been killed or maimed by illegal aliens will be remembered. Concerned citizens from the Phoenix area are invited. Similar events will be held across the country the same day.
"Every day Americans are being permanently separated from their families through no fault of their own," said Maria Espinoza, Founder of The Remembrance Project. "Our children are being ignored by politicians. It is time politicians 'represent' Americans or admit they cannot fulfill the job they promised to do and resign."
In Arizona, Sue Krentz, wife of Cochise County Rancher Robert Krentz killed by an illegal alien on March 27, 2010 will attend the ceremony. "It is absolutely disgraceful that the loss of my husband is being diminished by the mainstream media, Robert is no less significant to his family or his community. We can no longer vacillate on the issue of border security, there is too much at stake."
Former Senator Russell Pearce who's son Sean Pearce is on the list of victims that have been maimed or killed by illegal aliens in the State of Arizona said "enough is enough, we intend to hold lawmakers accountable and responsible for enforcing laws already on the books against trespassing lawbreakers. Attending this ceremony is a way for all of us to honor Arizonan victims who shall never be forgotten, and show support for their friends and family members."
"Criminal alien violence is unnecessary and preventable" said Rusty Childress, Remember 1986 founder. "These types of crimes against Arizonans are a direct result of dangerous selective enforcement practices and porous borders," noting that "illegal immigration is obviously not a victimless crime as some morally bankrupt talking heads would lead you to believe. What we need is comprehensive immigration enforcement, not another amnesty like Senate bill S744 which would only serve to perpetuate lawlessness into the future...remember 1986.″
