“We demand Americans first,” Jamiel Shaw Sr. said. “We don’t care about illegal aliens.” The man who murdered his son was an “illegal alien on his third gun charge.” His 17-year-old was by brutally assassinated by two Hispanic men while walking home after he participated in an invitational only weekend football training program with his father. “Since my son was dead, I pretty much gave up on being happy.”
Pedro Espinoza, 23, the killer was convicted of killing the high school football star was sentenced to death on November 2, 2012 in a Los Angeles courtroom.
Western Journalism reports that after Jamiel Shaw’s son, Jamiel Shaw Jr., was killed back in 2008, there was a splash of media attention mourning the senseless murder of a young man on the right path. Then came a long, dark silence when it seemed that the world forgot.
But Donald Trump, who Shaw believes was “sent from God,” didn’t forget.
Last year, the Republican presidential candidate contacted Shaw to talk about the tragedy, in which Shaw’s 17-year-old son was killed while walking home. Two Hispanic men had waylaid him, demanding to know what gang he was in. The young man, a star football player with a bright future, did not reply immediately. He was then shot by a gunman who was in the U.S. illegally.
“Since my son was dead, I pretty much gave up on being happy,” Shaw said.
Then came a surprise. Trump asked to meet with Shaw in person.
“To see somebody, especially a billionaire, come out. I can’t even get a neighborhood politician to come out, that’s why it’s so surreal to me,” Shaw said.
They met. Shaw talked about his son. Trump made a pledge.
“He told me to my face, he said, ‘I promise you I would never let your son’s life be in vain.’ To me it felt like the (future) president cared about me,” Shaw said.
Shaw said he had never contacted the Trump campaign, but has since guessed that someone in the campaign saw an interview Shaw did on Fox News.
Shaw said Trump’s immigration policy runs far deeper that just border security.
