Father of Son Murdered by Illegal Immigrant: Trump Was “Sent From God”
Donald Trump released a 30 second ad on Illegal Immigration on Friday.
The ad includes photos of Jas Shaw, a 17 year-old football star, who was gunned down outside his home by an illegal gang member who just got out of prison.
Jas’s dad Jamiel Shaw is supporting Donald Trump for president because he knows Trump will end illegal immigration.
Jamiel Shaw spoke at a rally for Donald Trump.
Jamiel Shaw, a former Democrat who supports the GOP frontrunner, says Donald Trump “was sent from God.”
The Washington Examiner reported:
A new ad released Friday by Donald Trump’s campaign team tells the story of Jamiel Shaw, a Los Angeles man who lost his teenage son in 2008 when a man in the U.S. illegally randomly shot and killed 17-year-old Jas.
In his first interview since the ad debuted, Shaw, an African-American man, told the Washington Examiner why he chose to support the Republican Manhattan billionaire who has been criticized by some as a racist and a phony.
It started on March 2, 2008, in the Arlington Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles were Jas had been walking home, talking with his girlfriend on a cellphone. He was three doors down from his house when a car pulled up by him. Two Hispanic men in the vehicle asked Jas which gang he belonged to. Police reports indicate Jas did not respond, which frustrated one of the men who pulled out a gun and shot the teen.
Jamiel, inside the family home, heard the shots and ran outside to find his son, a boy he judged to have been on the “right path,” bleeding from bullet wounds. Jas later died at the hospital…
…Trump unexpectedly reached out to Shaw last year about the murder and asked for a meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles hotel, which left Shaw stunned.
“To see somebody, especially a billionaire, come out. I can’t even get a neighborhood politician to come out, that’s why it’s so surreal to me,” Shaw said…
…”People are looking at immigration as just an immigration issue, but people are dying. It’s a fact. What good is the economy, healthcare, going to school, if people are dying?” Shaw asked. “Trump is doing things he doesn’t have to do. He can buy a whole island and get away from crime.”
The journey for Shaw in the eight years since his son’s death still takes a toll on him, he said. But now he has some hope, that in helping to change the policies that abetted his son’s murder, he can find a way to go on.
“This was the first time I thought everything’s really gonna be all right. To me, he was sent from God,” said Shaw.
