The parents of this MS-13 victim had a message for Democrats

Elizabeth Alvarado and Robert Mickens, the parents of a teenage girl murdered by MS-13, were invited by Trump to his State of the Union Address.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid mocked Trump for bringing awareness to the threat MS-13 poses by saying that only Fox News viewers have heard of them.

But Mr. Mickens slammed Democrats regarding their response to Trump’s call-to-action.

Elizabeth Alvarado and Robert Mickens were interviewed recently by Laura Ingraham about what it was like to have Trump console them during his State of the Union.

“Tonight everyone in this Chamber is praying for you. Everyone in America is grieving for you,” Trump said to them. “And 320 million hearts are breaking for you. We cannot imagine the depth of your sorrow, but we can make sure that other families never have to endure this pain.”

Trump shared their story with the nation:

“Here tonight are two fathers and two mothers: Evelyn Rodriguez, Freddy Cuevas, Elizabeth Alvarado, and Robert Mickens,” he said. Their two teenage daughters — Kayla Cuevas and Nisa Mickens — were close friends on Long Island. But in September 2016, on the eve of Nisa’s 16th Birthday, neither of them came home. These two precious girls were brutally murdered while walking together in their hometown. Six members of the savage gang MS-13 have been charged with Kayla and Nisa’s murders. Many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors ‑- and wound up in Kayla and Nisa’s high school.”

But Mr. Mickens was struck by the way Democrats reacted to Trump’s statement.

“Well, I thought it was very disrespectful for the simple fact the Democrats who were there that did not stand up, they were African-Americans. So that hurts me a lot to show they did not have the respect or to honor what just happened to our lives and to Americans’ lives. It’s not right, you know. Regardless of how they feel about the president, they should show the respect because I would show them the respect if that was their loved one.”


Many Democrats did not stand up or applaud to honor this family because of pure partisanship.

Of Joy Reid’s comments, Elizabeth Alvarado simply said, “I have no words.”

“No words.”

  1. Generally, there are no term limits except on POTUS, and in a few states’ their governors, but even there it’s only limited to 2 consecutive terms; they can run again after a lapse of a term in between, as in CA. And we only have term limits on POTUS since after FDR did his stint. That was passed and signed under Truman, I believe, but it might have been Ike. NEVER before in our history had anyone attempted to run more than 2 terms, for POTUS. And the majority of members of Congress hadn’t made careers of it either until recent decades. Hence, now is when we have the need to deal with this; and I don’t want them still making careers by moving from level to level, slot to slot; therefore a maximum 12 year cap for an individual’s lifetime.

  2. The older generation are democrats. They just don’t see that their party is no more and a liberal plague has spread to take control. My dad is 86 and a Democrat but he is no liberal. But he is starting to see the darkness coming from his party. He doesn’t have the plague.

  3. YHWH Is g_d (note little ‘g’ ) of Revenge … Not Christos< …
    Revenge is Blood calling to 'another 0rder' … hmm

  4. By refusing to honor the loss of these parents, and acknowledge the lawlessness of the M-13 gang. The Deamoncrats align themselves with lawlessness and failure to fulfill their mission to make laws and support their enforcement.

  5. The fact is our forefathers didn’t address the issue of Presidential terms except that they were to be 4 years. The 2 term limit happened after FDR, and in the late ’40s of the last century. Until then, no POTUS had even tried to serve more than 2 terms; so there was no need to address it. But it became an obvious necessity after FDR, just as we clearly see that terms of other offices also need to be limited now; but we need to limit more than individual office terms; we need to end, once and for all, the idea of politics as a career, and that can only be done by limiting how much of his life any 1 individual can spend in elected or appointed offices, which would include Federal judges, as well as others.

  6. I whole heartedly agree. Career politicians were never supposed to be. Our forefathers hoped we would’ve gotten the point when the said presidents could only serve 2 terms. I know the politicians would disagree with me, but the longer you stay in office, the more they can figure out ways to take more of tax payers money, and to hold on to power. They always say we need people with more experience. That’s a load of garbage. None of our founding fathers weren’t that knowledgeable about politics and so they learned to listen to their constituents and moved forward. Nowadays politicians will look at us when we speak and on the inside will say, you can say what you want, but I’m still going to do what I want to do. So yes Sandra I am with you all the way in term limits. These folks have got to go! Have a great day!????

  7. I cannot imagine the sorrow of losing a child, but to lose a child to that kind of violence is beyond comprehension? The fact that our elected officials could sit there with blank expressions and hearts filled with hate when President Trump was talking about these families tremendous loss is despicable! I pray that these corrupt self serving individuals get what they have coming! MAGA
