A group of “Angel Moms” descended upon Capitol Hill on Tuesday and invaded the offices of top Democrats who are refusing to secure the border, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
The women, mothers of children killed by illegal immigrants, attempted to meet with Pelosi to discuss border security and illegal immigrant, but they were told she was too “busy.”
Angel Mom Sabine Durden called Pelosi’s refusal to talk to them a “slap” in the face.
“It’s a stab, it’s a kick in the gut, in the groin,” she said.
Durden’s son, Dominic, was hit and killed by an illegal immigrant driver in 2012. She has since become an outspoken advocate against illegal immigration.

Women for Trump organizer Amy Kremer claimed Pelosi’s office even lied to the Angel Moms about the speaker not being in her office.
“Speaker Pelosi would not meet with the Angel Families,” Kremer said during the protest. “As a matter of fact, they told us the speaker wasn’t there at that office and while we were there, somebody came in that had a private meeting with her and they escorted her back behind the wall!”

Meanwhile, Democrats refused to even meet with President Donald Trump on Tuesday to negotiate increased border security measures. They boycotted the meeting altogether.
This is the Democrats' shutdown.
