President Trump extended an invitation to Evelyn Rodriguez, mother of a 16-year-old girl savagely beaten to death by MS-13 gang members, to attend his State of the Union address.

Kayla Cuevas was one of two girls attacked by members of the gang in 2016, being beaten numerous times with baseball bats and a machete.

Rodriguez met with President Trump in July of 2017 to address the growing wave of gang violence that was allowed to propagate under former President Barack Obama.

The mother said she had no desire to tell Trump how to do his job on illegal immigration, but a New York Times report about their meeting stated “the wave of gang violence resulting in 17 murders in the county since 2016 has been fueled in part by illegal immigration of young people.”

Rodriguez will be a guest of honor at the State of the Union on Tuesday and will have a chance to talk to the President prior to his address.

“I just want what’s right to be done,” Rodriguez told the Times. “Everybody should put their political agenda aside and think about what’s going on in our country.”

President Trump has long been advocating a platform that would curtail the proliferation of violent gangs such as MS-13.

“Gangs threaten the safety of our communities, not just in major metropolitan areas but in our suburbs and rural areas, too,” acting Director of ICE Thomas Homan.

Part of making those communities safer involved enforcement of our immigration laws.

By contrast, Obama had knowingly allowed members of MS-13 to enter the country, according to documents obtained from a whistleblower.

“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Senator Ron Johnson claimed.

While the President is inviting heartbroken family members of victims of gang violence, Democrats are inviting … you guessed it … illegals!

“I want to be clear: DREAMers are Americans,” said Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY), who has invited a guest that came to the U.S. from El Salvador at the age of 15. “They contribute to our economy, our communities and our strength and stability as a nation.”

Illegals are their priority. Not Americans. Or veterans. Or legal immigrants.

White House officials said the SOTU theme will be “building a safe, strong and proud America,” something that can only be done if Democrats finally agree to enforce the law.
