Angel Dad: Why Hasn’t Nancy Pelosi Torn Down Border Wall if It’s 'Immoral?'
Military veteran Tweets House speaker over daughter's death
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has come under fire again, this time with Angel dad Chris Odette who questioned why the Democrat had not presented a bill to tear down the border wall if she thinks its “immoral.”
Speaking with Breitbart News, the military veteran said he had tweeted Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer multiple times, inviting them to speak with him about his daughters' death, but neither responded.
Unlicensed driver and illegal alien Ramiro Tolentino Guevara killed Odette’s 13-year-old daughter, Chrishia Odette, by running her over.
Odette described how he felt after hearing the authorities’ description of the blood pouring from her face after she was hit.
He said he would ask both Pelosi and Schumer about the supposed “manufactured crisis, asking is this really a manufactured crisis?"
He would also enquire, “Why don’t you talk to me about my daughter’s death?”
Odette said he would give Pelosi a card with daughter’s name, photo, and date of death.
"I’d absolutely love to sit down with her and have her explain to me how this is manufactured, and I would like to ask her why she never came to my daughter’s funeral,” said Odette.
“You know, she’s concerned about so much. Chuck Schumer’s concerned about, you know, border security and not building a wall that would actually control in the direction of people’s movements.”
“Is it immoral that she has a wall around her house?” Odette posited of Pelosi and her residence.
“She’s keeping people out as much as she’s trying to keep her family safe.”
During an October Harvard Institute of Politics event, Pelosi called a U.S. southern border wall “immoral, expensive, ineffective, not something that people do between countries.”
She pledged then to give “nothing” for the border wall if Democrats won back the House.
“If that wall is immoral now and it wasn’t a few years ago, then why hasn’t she introduced legislation to have it all torn down?” Odette questioned in Wednesday’s interview.
Last month, a group of Angel families - American victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants - stormed Nancy Pelosi's office, urging her to support President Trump's proposal for a wall to be constructed along the US Southern Border.
Joined by legislators and Women for Trump, the victims of illegal aliens marched on Capitol Hill chanting "build the wall."
Carrying photographs of their loved ones, who they say were killed in Nancy Pelosi's district by illegal immigrants, the group stood outside the House speaker's office asking for a few minutes of her time.
