Angel Mom torches Biden over immigration order: ‘Spitting on the faces of every legal immigrant’

Angel Mom Agnes Gibboney lost her son Ronald da Silva in 2002 when he was murdered by an illegal immigrant. She told The Ingraham Angle on Thursday that President Biden’s order halting all deportations for the next 100 days is “spitting on the faces of every legal immigrant in this country.”

Gibboney is a legal immigrant to the United States from Hungary and is a strong Trump supporter. She’s stating that the order means that “we are no longer citizens. We are second-class citizens, and it’s a disgrace.”

“I feel as a legal immigrant that this government is spitting on the faces of every legal immigrant in this country that contributed to this nation. As of January 20th, [the] United States officially became the socialist United States of America. We are no longer citizens. We are second-class citizens, and it’s a disgrace,” she adamantly stated to Ingraham.

She continued: “We have a COVID issue in this country. We need money to help our country. But no, let’s bring thousands more into our country who are not going to be able to contribute. You know, in 1986, President Reagan gave an amnesty. Why don’t we investigate those three million people and see how much they contributed to the economy of this country, see how many are in prison, see how many returned to their country of origin, and then decide if we’re going to open the gate to let [in] a flood of millions of people. That’s going to become a burden on taxpayers. Our taxes are going to go up to maintain them. That’s not right.”

“I think about him [her son] every day. Next Thursday will be his 49th birthday … I celebrate his birthday at the cemetery. No mother or father should go to celebrate their child’s birthday caressing a cold stone on the ground. He should be here so I could hug him, so he could hug me back, so he can tell me Happy Mother’s Day. I buried my son a week before Mother’s Day. Does anybody in Congress, does anybody ever care about it?”

Agnes ended with: “We went to Pelosi’s office. I left a picture of my son, of his gravesite. I left my cell phone, my email. I said, ‘Would you please call me?’ Do you think she called me? No, I don’t have representation in Congress and none of us do. This is the true fact. It’s a sad fact.”

The Angel Mom is not the only one who is deriding Biden’s new immigration plan.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) called it a nonstarter.

“There are many issues I think we can work cooperatively with President-elect Biden, but a blanket amnesty for people who are here unlawfully isn’t going to be one of them,” he said in a statement Tuesday, the day before Biden was sworn in.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he doubts Biden’s plan can pass, describing it as “to the left” of the 2013 legislation that he helped write, citing fewer provisions to beef up border security.

Graham stated the most likely result is a smaller deal centered on codifying the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which President Obama set up unilaterally.

“I think probably the space in a 50-50 Senate would be some kind of DACA deal,” Graham said Thursday. “Comprehensive immigration is going to be a tough sell given this environment, but doing DACA, I think, is possible.”

According to National Review, Biden’s U.S. Citizenship Act entails the following:

  • It will create a path to earn permanent residence and citizenship for certain undocumented individuals. Individuals would apply for legal status or green card lawful permanent-resident status for five years and then for more permanent green card status after three years. They would need to pass background checks and pay taxes. Dreamers, TPS holders, and agricultural immigrant workers who meet specific requirements are eligible for green cards immediately under the legislation. Applicants must be physically present in the United States on or before Jan. 1, 2021.
  • It will reduce family visa backlogs. The proposal would clear backlogs, recapture unused visas, eliminating lengthy waiting times.
  • The proposal would allow immigrants with approved family-sponsorship petitions to join their family in the United States on a temporary status while they wait for green cards to become available.
  • This proposal would clear employment-based visa backlogs, recapture unused visas, and eliminate per-country visa caps. The proposal would exempt graduates of U.S. universities with advanced STEM degrees from immigrant visa caps.
  • The proposal creates a pilot program to stimulate regional economic development, by giving DHS the authority to adjust immigrant visa numbers based on economic conditions

The blanket amnesty move is not acceptable to Agnes and other Angel Moms.

In her efforts to take action against illegal immigration and sanctuary cities, Gibboney has also run for office and has joined the effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom.
