Mother of Officer Killed by Illegal Immigrant Wrote President Obama-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email that contains a letter to President Obama, allegedly written by the mother of a police officer killed by an illegal immigrant.
The letter is real, according to a July 11, 2014, article by Britain’s Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail reported that Raul Silva-Corona, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, had been driving a vehicle against the traffic on an Arizona highway for 35 miles when he had a fatal collision with Mesa Police Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, who was driving home after his shift. The U.S. government had allowed Corona to remain in the country for the past 20 years after he pleaded guilty to criminal conspiracy in 1994.
Corona’s blood alcohol level was 0.24 percent, which was three times the legal limit permitted by the Grand Canyon State.
Mary Ann Mendoza wrote the letter to President Obama demanding an explanation as to why Corona had been permitted to remain in the country.
