Laura Wilkerson testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the murder of her son Josh by a man who was living in the U.S. illegally. She thanks Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his recent remarks about immigration, criticizes so-called "sanctuary cities," and calls on senators to act.

This is the most horrific story I’ve heard to date on an illegal immigrant randomly, and indiscriminately killing an American. Today, a courageous Mother testified at the Congressional Hearing on Capital Hill. Joshua Wilkerson was not just killed, he was tortured. Here is Laura Wilkerson’s testimony:
“My son’s name was Joshua Wilkerson,” she began. “On November 16, 2010, he was beaten, strangled, tortured until he died. He was tied up, thrown in a field, and set on fire. His killer, Hermilo Moralez, was brought here illegally by his illegal parents when he was ten years old, so he fit the ‘DREAM’ kid description. He was sentenced to life in prison, which means it will be 30 years before he’s up for parole. He’ll be a 49-year-old man, who I don’t expect to be deported. And I just hope he doesn’t come to live in your city.”…
…Wilkerson then issued a blistering attack on sanctuary city policies that provide safe harbor and anonymity for dangerous, criminal aliens who are living illegally in the United States. She said:
Sanctuary city policies scream to the criminal element of illegals in this country: ‘Come to our town USA, we’ll protect you from our terrible policemen. We’ll protect you from these tough American laws, that you — because you had a hard life — are not able to go through the same motion that an American is. It is going to take another life lost by a Senator, a Congressman, the President, even another of today’s heroes, someone from Hollywood before someone in a position moves on this. I urge you: you are in a position to do something about this for Americans.
“I thank you to Mr. Trump for getting a message out about the nation in two minutes… that countless families like my own have been trying to say for five to six years. It feels good to be heard whether you love him, or whether you don’t, I felt heard.”
This was emotionally, and physically, the hardest thing for me to watch ever. But, also very important for me to see the whole way through. If you don't take the time to watch to the end...then please respect by not leaving uninformed comment.
