SOTU Guest Whose Brother Was Killed by Illegal: By Tearing Up Speech, Pelosi ‘Ripped Our Hearts Out’

Jody Jones, whose brother was shot and killed by an illegal alien, attended Tuesday’s State of the Union address, where President Donald Trump honored his brother’s memory and share the story of his tragic death.

The president’s guest was also present as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tore up her copy of Trump’s speech, which paid tribute to his brother and called for an end to the California law (SB 54) that allowed the illegal alien to remain in the country, free to kill Jones’ brother.

“It felt like she ripped our hearts out. All the guests; we couldn’t believe it,” Jones said Tuesday morning in an interview on “Fox and Friends”:

“It felt like she ripped our hearts out. All the guests. We couldn’t believe it.

“I don’t care how you feel about somebody. That was probably the most disrespectful thing I have ever seen in my life. Because, when she did that, it just tore us up. We couldn’t believe it.”

Jones had a message for Speaker Pelosi: Abolish SB 54, which prohibits local law enforcement from reporting to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (IC) when they release an illegal alien back into the community:

“Let’s do away with the SB 54. I don’t care how you feel about somebody. Think of other people and the others involved, please. Because, what you did was very disrespectful, and it really ripped our hearts out.”

“Right now, lawmakers are above the law,” a distraught Jones said, when asked about legislation to allow people to sue a sanctuary city if they have loved ones killed by an illegal immigrant:

“I hear a lot that, ‘Nobody’s above the law.’

“Right now, lawmakers are above the law – because, they can write anything they want, and never be held accountable. Just like this is the perfect case for this. It really is.

“We’ve had so many roadblocks, when it comes to that. It’s just, there’s no help, because they can’t be held accountable. And, it’s really a shame.”
