Pelosi Tells Mother Whose Son Was Murdered: Illegal Aliens ‘Are Law-Abiding Citizens’ [VIDEO]
by Derek Hunter
Laura Wilkerson, whose teenage son was tortured and murdered by an illegal alien in 2010, got into an emotional confrontation with House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a CNN town hall event Tuesday night.
Wilkerson told Pelosi, “In 2010, one the illegals slaughtered my son. He tortured him, he beat him, he tied him up like an animal, and he set him on fire. And I am not a one-story mother. This happens every day because there are no laws enforced at the border. We have to start giving American families first.”
On the issue of Pelosi and Democrats’ support for sanctuary cities, Wilkerson asked, “How do you reconcile in your head about allowing people to disavow the law?”
“There’s nothing, I’m sure, that can compare to the grief that you have, and so I pray for you,” Pelosi said.
“But I do want to say to you that in our sanctuary cities, our people are not disobeying the law,” Pelosi continued. “These are law-abiding citizens. It enables them to be there without being reported to ICE in case of another crime that they might bear witness to.”
Pelosi then asked if her son was murdered in a sanctuary city. Josh, Wilkerson’s son, was murdered just outside of Houston, Texas, which is a sanctuary city.

Here’s what happened to Joshua Wilkerson
“Wilkerson’s partially burned remains were discovered in a Fort Bend County field, where his body had been dumped with his hands and feet bound.
The week before Thanksgiving 2010, Wilkerson disappeared after leaving the campus of PACE Center, Pearland school district’s alternative high school.
His parents notified police later that evening when they found his truck in a strip mall parking lot. After an extensive search by authorities and volunteers, the teen’s body was found the next day across the county line.
In November 2011, Moralez, a Belize national, was transferred to a state mental hospital after it was determined that he was not competent to stand trial.
At a hearing last year, jurors heard from two psychiatrists who testified that Moralez was well enough to go through the judicial proceeding.
Brazoria County District Attorney Jeri Yenne tried the case against Moralez.
Authorities said Moralez, then 19, admitted beating Wilkerson to death with a wooden rod. At the time of his arrest, he did not have legal status in this country, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”
