The tragic story of the college graduate, 21, who Trump mentioned in his nomination acceptance speech after she was killed by a drunken illegal immigrant street-racer

At just 21 years old, Sarah Root had her whole life ahead of her.

She had graduated from Bellevue University near Omaha, Nebraska, with top grades.

But while she was out celebrating with friends on January 31, just 24 hours after completing her degree, her life was cut short.

While she had stopped at traffic lights in her car, drunken illegal immigrant Eswin Mejia slammed into her  while he was street racing in his truck.

Her family kept her on life support for three days, but her injuries were too severe. In those 72 hours Mejia had been arrested, been freed on bond and had already left the country.

    “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”
    Haile Selassie (1892-1975)

    Anyone who makes excuses for illegal immigration is immoral.
