Ahead of President Donald Trump’s highly anticipated first State of the Union address, the guests he has hand-selected to attend speaks volumes about his character and where he stands on illegal immigration.
“I just want what’s right to be done,” Rodriguez told The New York Times in an interview. “Everybody should put their political agenda aside and think about what’s going on in our country.”
On top of that, Rodriguez will also meet and speak with Trump at the White House prior to the address.
Rodriguez’s daughter Kayla Cuevas and her 15-year-old friend Nisa Mickens were beaten with baseball bats and stabbed to death with machetes in 2016 by MS-13 gang members when they were walking home one night.
Rodriguez, a reported registered Democrat, said she doesn’t want to politicize her daughter’s tragedy, but rather bring awareness to the severity of deporting illegal immigrants — particularly criminals and gang members — and securing our borders.
“I want him to ensure that we’re going to get the proper funding for the resources for our kids,” she said. “I’m not here for anybody’s political gain.”
Trump will also be bringing several other guests to the address, including a wounded U.S. military veteran, the founder of a group that assisted in hurricane recovery efforts last fall, and a police officer who adopted a young child from opioid-addicted parents.
This perfectly encapsulates not only Trump’s character but also his commitment to always stand up for common Americans.
As arguably the most pro-police and military president we have had in many years, Trump is honoring our heroes in uniform. He is also sending a bold message that he is securing our borders and removing illegal immigrants — especially criminals — remains one of his highest priorities.
The president continues to prove he’s the voice and leader of the forgotten man and woman, and his speech will reaffirm his commitment to protecting our nations and citizens.
