A day before President Donald Trump traveled to El Paso to meet with those affected by the weekend’s shooting, the sister of two deceased victims, Andre and Jordan Anchondo, blasted local Democrat lawmakers for having told the president that he wasn’t welcome in their city.
“It’s such a shame that two of our local politicians (I refuse to say their names as they don’t deserve it) are saying that our President is not welcome on Wednesday,” Vibora (Deborah) Anchondo wrote in a lengthy Facebook post.
“I cannot believe how these monsters are using the tragic event to push their political agenda. I lost my brother and sister-in-law on Saturday. My family and I are living a horrible nightmare.”
Vibora’s brother and sister-in-law died while shielding their 2-month-old baby from gunfire.
Jordan Anchondo, 25, was a stay-at-home mother to three children. She died alongside her husband, Andre. The couple was in Walmart with their infant son when they were fatally shot. According to Jordan’s sister, she died shielding her baby from the gunfire. The infant survived. pic.twitter.com/27k5Pbrl2i

“The visit from our President will be more than comforting to my family,” Vibora’s post continues. “He will not be here for a political agenda. The two monsters from El Paso, who do not deserve to be mentioned by name nor even the nicknames I have for them, are just pure evil.”
“My brothers body was still laying at Walmart on Saturday night when they decided to make this into a political issue and push their agenda by blaming our President for this. Rather than focusing on the situation and the individual who destroyed the lives of many, these evil people selfishly turned this into a political war. I’m equally as angered by those two as I am with the person who took my brother and his wife from me, typing this I think I feel more animosity towards those two evil politicians.”

One of the two politicians that she referenced is definitely freshmen Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar.
“From my perspective, he is not welcome here,” Escobar said of Trump during an appearance on MSNBC earlier in the week. “I would encourage the president’s staff members to have him do a little self-reflection. I would encourage them to show him his own words and his actions at the rallies.”
“I need you to acknowledge that you’ve dehumanized people who are good and equal to all of us. And you need to rehumanize everyone.”
To be clear, the only people whom the president has dehumanized have been terrorists, MS-13 gang members and illegal alien criminals, all of whom combined have raped and/or killed a countless number of innocent men, women and children.
Escobar reportedly also refused an opportunity to take part in the president’s meeting.
“I declined the invitation to accompany the President because I refuse to be an accessory to his visit,” she wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday. “I refuse to join without a true dialogue about the pain his racist and hateful words and actions have caused our community and this country.”
She added that the White House had refused her request to speak to the president directly and lecture him about how his widely supported opposition to illegal immigration is to blame for a white supremacist killing dozens of people.
The White House invited me to join Donald J. Trump during his visit to El Paso. My response was clear. I requested a…
Posted by Congresswoman Veronica Escobar on Tuesday, August 6, 2019
Escobar is the same law-breaking Democrat congresswoman who was credibly accused last month of coaching asylum seekers — some of whom could have very well been criminals in disguise hoping to game the system — on how to fool America’s immigration authorities.
She’s also one of the radical freshmen Democrats who toured U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s illegal alien detention centers earlier this summer and then proceeded to lie about what they’d seen and experienced inside the facilities.
While it’s unclear who the other official that Vibora referenced happens to be, it could be Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke. On Monday he told El Paso Times reporter Eleanor Dearman that Trump shouldn’t visit the city because “[h]e’s helped to create what we saw in El Paso on Saturday” and “[h]e’s helped to produce the suffering that we are experiencing right now.”
.@BetoORourke tells me in an interview that he does not think @realDonaldTrump should come to El Paso: “He’s helped to create what we saw in El Paso on Saturday. He’s helped to produce the suffering that we are experiencing right now. This community needs to heal.”

Just like the statements made by Escobar, O’Rourke’s comments were also completely false. They were based on the frequently told lie that the president’s fervent opposition to illegal immigration is rooted in white supremacy based racism against blacks and Hispanics. It’s an illogical and nonsensical assertion that doesn’t vibe with the reality of the matter, which is that blacks and Hispanics are just as so opposed to illegal immigration as the president.
“[V]oters across racial lines said they would be more likely to support a 2020 presidential candidate that wants to reduce illegal immigration,” Breitbart reported Wednesday, citing a new Harvard/Harris poll.
“Roughly 63 percent of black Americans and 61 percent of Hispanic Americans said they would be more likely to support an anti-illegal immigration presidential candidate.”
Unless O’Rourke also believes they too are white supremacists, perhaps he should follow the president’s advice and just “be quiet” already.
