With the Democratic Party regularly advocating on behalf of foreign nationals who have no legal right to be in the United States, ignoring the negative impact this may have on American citizens, President Trump took time out from his busy reelection campaign to honor those who have lost their lives to illegal immigrants.
The president issued a proclamation Friday declaring that Sunday, Nov. 1, will be a “National Day of Remembrance for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens.”
“On this National Day of Remembrance, we pause to honor the memory of every American life so egregiously taken from us by criminal illegal aliens,” Trump stated. “As sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, and as American citizens, these precious lives are an irreplaceable piece of our national community.”
“We solemnly stand with their families — our Angel Families — who have endured what no American family should ever have to suffer,” he continued. “Today, we recommit to ensuring that those responsible for these tragedies face justice, while taking every action to prevent these horrific acts from occurring in our Nation.”
The White House press office emailed this out about an hour ago.

Much like the sudden media disinterest in the lawlessness that’s still taking place in Democrat-run cities, immigration has fallen from their radar — which may be a clear sign that the issue favors Trump.
To be fair, the pandemic brought on by the Chinese plague has slowed what’s been an ongoing massive flow of humanity toward the U.S.-Mexico border, a migration aided and abetted by the left.
In addition to campaigning as a proponent of law and order, the president’s pledge to secure the southern border remains an integral part of his appeal to Americans.
“As President, I have no higher duty than to ensure the safety and security of all Americans,” Trump said in the proclamation. “Accordingly, I will never rest until our border is fully secure and our communities safe. The laws of our country, including immigration laws, must be respected and followed so that every American citizen may have a bright and prosperous future.”
He praised agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, for working “every day to protect Americans from the senseless crimes that our Angel Families have had to endure.”
“Under my watch, the voices of our Angel Families no longer fall on deaf ears,” Trump said. “Americans who are killed by illegal aliens are no longer forgotten, and we are ensuring that they will not have died in vain. Our Nation solemnly stands alongside the mothers and fathers who are no longer able to see their children grow up and have families of their own and for the sons and daughters who have lost a parent or loved one at the hands of someone who never should have been inside our country in the first place.”
The White House announced Friday that “nearly 400 miles of new border wall” are now complete, and said the “administration is prosecuting and deporting violent criminals, stopping the flow of illegal drugs, and closing the loopholes that help human smugglers while hurting our own citizens.”
This prompted the following headline from The Guardian on Saturday: “An incredible scar’: the harsh toll of Trump’s 400-mile wall through national parks.”
The proclamation stressed that the administration is on pace to complete more than 500 miles by early next year and touted Trump’s policies against illegal immigration.
“We have ended the terrible practice of catch‑and-release, deployed approximately 4,000 National Guard personnel to the Southern Border in the last 2 years to support Federal border security and wall construction efforts, restored integrity and safety to the asylum process through the Migrant Protection Protocols, and deported more 20,000 gang members and over 500,000 criminal illegal aliens,” Trump declared.
