“Do Black Lives Really Matter?”

The father of an American murdered by an illegal immigrant made an impassioned plea to Congress Wednesday to adopt policies to prevent it from happening again.

“My family’s peace and freedom were stolen by an illegal alien from Mexico. He was brought here by his illegal alien parents and allowed to grow up as a wild animal,” Jamiel Shaw testified before an Oversight and Government Reform panel about the murder of his son Jamiel Shaw II at the hands of Pedro Espinoza.

Shaw said that while some ascribe good qualities to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, they are not all good.

“Some people believe that if you are brought over by no fault of your own that it makes you a good person. They want us to believe that DREAM Act kids don’t murder. I am here to debunk that myth. Kids brought over the border by no fault of their own do kill Americans. How many American’s killed by illegal aliens are too many?” Shaw said, explaining that as a parent of a murder victim, “one is too many.”

Shaw described how his son was murdered while walking on the street three doors away from his home by an illegal immigrant recently released from jail.

“He shot my son in the stomach and then in the head. Killing him. Do black lives really matter? Or does it matter only if you are shot by a white person or a while police man? The district attorney proved in court that my son was murdered because he was black and wearing a spiderman backpack,” Shaw said.

The grieving father said that he believed that the death could have been prevented. “Jameil shouldn’t be dead,” he testified.
