President Donald Trump designated November 1 as a national day of remembrance for Americans killed by criminal illegal immigrants — putting his strong policy against illegal aliens at the center of the last few days of his campaign for reelection.
President Trump issued “Proclamation on National Day of Remembrance for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens” on October 30.
The White House press office emailed this out about an hour ago.

“On this National Day of Remembrance, we pause to honor the memory of every American life so egregiously taken from us by criminal illegal aliens,” the proclamation read. “As sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, and as American citizens, these precious lives are an irreplaceable piece of our national community.”
President Trump noted that the proclamation is a “recommitment” to ensuring that those responsible for the said tragedies face justice “while taking every action to prevent these horrific acts from occurring in our nation.”
Trump vows to end to “senseless crimes”
“We solemnly stand with their families — our Angel Families — who have endured what no American family should ever have to suffer … As President, I have no higher duty than to ensure the safety and security of all Americans. I will never rest until our border is fully secure and our communities safe,” he said.
The Republican president who has made illegal immigration a top priority of his presidency sought to highlight his tough immigration policies which is in stark contrast to that of Democratic nominee Joe Biden who vowed to dismantle President Trump’s immigration policies if elected.
In his proclamation, the President commended the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for their work to protect Americans from “senseless crimes” such as those that Angel Families have had to endure.
“The laws of our country, including immigration laws, must be respected and followed so that every American citizen may have a bright and prosperous future,” President Trump said.
He went on to criticize establishment politicians who have treated the families of people killed by illegal immigrants with “indifference” as he touted the accomplishment of his administration in expanding the wall along the Mexico border.
The White House has announced that 400 miles of new border wall had been constructed during the first term of the President despite the legal battle with Democrats who have been trying to fight the building of the border wall.
500 miles of new border wall by early 2021
President Trump said his administration is “on pace” to complete more than 500 miles by early next year.
He also cited the creation of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office under the Department of Homeland Security as well as the deployment of 4,000 National Guard personnel to the border.
The Republican President then announced a number of operations being done by the government targeting criminal illegal aliens across the country. He said around 20,000 gang members and more than 500,000 criminal illegal immigrants have been deported so far.
“On this National Day of Remembrance, we pay tribute to the enduring memory of every American killed by an illegal alien,” his proclamation said.“They will never be forgotten, and we will stand by their families and fight for a future where every American is safe.”
Separately, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said the progress in the southern border “did not happen by accident.”
“The many miles of border wall system exists because of the will and vision of President Trump, and the dedication and hard work of the men and women of DHS, the Army Corps of Engineers, and our colleagues from across the Administration,” he said.
