The father of daughter that was murdered by MS-13 blasts Democrats for their disrespect at SOTU: “It hurt me a Lot, they should show respect”
The murders of Brentwood, New York teenagers Kayla Cuevas and Nisa Mickens in September 2016 shocked the community and galvanized law enforcement.
Cuevas was involved in a series of disputes with MS-13 gang members on social media.
Father of teen slain by MS-13 Robert Mickens on Democrats not standing during #SOTU: “Regardless of how they feel about the president, they should show the respect, because I would show them the respect if that was their loved one.” https://t.co/vU8vKwpabH @IngrahamAngle pic.twitter.com/ABRUhj2L3p

So on the evening of September 13, 2016, several MS-13 members attacked the two girls with baseball bats and a machete, striking the girls numerous times in the head and body.
Cuevas’s body was discovered the following day behind a home near the attack.
President Trump invited Kayla and Nisa’s parents, Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, to his State of the Union Address.
Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas, who had been close friends since elementary school, were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13.
On Tuesday night when the President honored the parents of Kayla and Nisa and the victims of illegal immigrant violence the Democrats groaned and sat on their hands.
This was a shocking display – even for today’s Democrats.
On Wednesday night Laura Ingraham invited two of the parents on her show. Read more at TGP.
Robert Mickens: “I thought it was very disrespectful. For the simple fact that the Democrats who were there and did not stand up, they were African-Americans. So that hurt me a lot… Regardless of how they feel about the president, they should show the respect, because I would show them the respect if that was their loved one.”
God bless them, their lives were torn apart by those without hearts. I pray for God’s hand in their lives for comfort.

These parents could be your neighbors, they could be your friends, hell…they could even be you. Is this the kind of Congress you desire running our legislative branch post November 2018?

It was very brave of these 2 families to be there and it was extremely disrespectful for the Democrats to treat these grieving parents in this manner.
