Mom Of Officer Killed By Illegal Alien Suspended By Twitter After Speaking Out
Mesa, AZ – The mother of a Mesa police sergeant who was killed by a drunken, meth-fueled illegal alien in a head-on crash in 2014 was suspended from Twitter for speaking out against illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.
“Angel Mom” Mary Ann Mendoza said her account was suspended after she made a series of posts on Twitter regarding illegal aliens and the dangers of sanctuary city policies, Breitbart News reported.
“@KamalaHarris What law can I break and have you defend me so staunchly? Provide me sanctuary from our laws?” one post read. “Political cleanup from YOUR INACTION FOR DECADES is what it’s called. You have #bloodonyourhands for every death on an American killed by an ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL you are protecting.”
In another post, Mendoza called out Columbia Law School Immigrants’ Rights Clinic Director Elora Mukherjee.
“Fighting for ILLEGAL ALIENS ONE CASE AT A TIME,” the angel mom wrote. “The demise of our country from within. Where were you when American families need representation when their loved ones are killed by ILLEGAL ALIENS?!? Pro Bono for illegals but NADA for Americans.”
Mendoza tagged Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi in another post, in which she noted that “Americans are torn apart every hour by ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS. EVERY HOUR.”
Twitter ultimately sent her a message alleging that her posts went against the platform’s “standards on hate speech,” and demanded that she delete them if she wanted to resume using her account, Mendoza told Breitbart News.
“I’m disgusted and disappointed that Twitter is trying to silence me,” she said. “I had my world ripped out from under me the day my son was killed by a repeat illegal alien criminal. I am the ‘other’ side of this crisis and the end result of open borders and the careless release of illegal aliens at our borders because of time restraints.”
The social media platform referred to six of her posts as “hateful content,” even though she has been making similar posts for the past five years, Mendoza told FOX News on Sunday.
She said she has refused to remove them, and that she has filed two appeals with the company.
After her Twitter account was suspended, Mendoza posted shots of her tweets to her Facebook account.
“And then Facebook put me in jail also,” she noted. “It’s cowardly that they do this to conservative people who are standing up, pointing out the accountability that our Congress lacks.”
The angel mom said she is also considering filing a lawsuit against Twitter.
“I’ve had people tweet to me, ‘Your son deserved to die. I hope you die the same way your son did, at the hands of a drunk illegal alien,’” she railed. “I have reported them to Twitter and Twitter has done nothing about that. That’s hate.”
Mendoza said that she “will not be silenced,” and that she will continue to warn her fellow Americans about the risks unfettered illegal immigration poses to them and those they love, Breitbart News reported.
“As an American citizen whose beautiful son was collateral damage to the ineptness if our elected officials, I will continue to bring my words to them in whatever platform I can,” she said. “They owe it to me and every other Angel Family to have a hearing for our voices. Their fellow American citizens and our loved ones killed by their inactions. My voice is my son’s voice, never to be silenced by anyone.”
On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted that Mendoza “should never be silenced,” and urged Twitter to stop sanctioning her.
“It does my heart good to know that he fights as hard for me as I fight for him,” Mendoza said of the President, according to The Epoch Times.
Mendoza’s Twitter account has since been re-activated, but the allegedly offensive posts appear to have been removed.
Sgt. Mendoza, 32, had just gotten off shift on May 12, 2014, and was on his way home when the fatal head-on crash occurred, according to his memorial website.
His killer, Raul Silva-Corona, traveled the wrong way on multiple freeways for approximately 30 miles before he slammed into Sgt. Mendoza, KNXV reported.
Silva-Corona was also killed in the crash.
