Sunday, November 3, is the third annual National Remembrance Day for those killed by illegal aliens. On this day, we will honor those Americans who died as a direct result of our undefended border with Mexico, as well as our politicians' unwilling attitude towards enforcing current immigration laws.
National Remembrance Day was conceived by the Tea Party Immigration Coalition (TPIC) and in the Fall of 2011, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) announced his sponsorship of a resolution making the first Sunday of every November the day we honor our fellow citizens who have been killed by illegal aliens.
The following is a list of a few of the events being held around the country this weekend:
Rally on Saturday, Nov. 2, 10 a.m.-11a.m.
Location: SE Corner of Indiantown Rd. & Military Trail
Guest speaker: WFTL talk show host Joyce Kaufman
-Los Angeles, CA
Candlelight vigil on Sunday, Nov. 3, 3:30 p.m.
Location: Jamiel Shaw Jr. Memorial Site (Corner of Fifth Ave. and 23rd St.)
Speakers: Jamiel Shaw Sr., Brenda Sparks, and Lupe Moreno
Candlelight vigil on Sunday, Nov. 3, 5:30 p.m.
Location: Wesley Bowlin Park, 17th Ave. & Adams
There are major events planned in Texas, North Carolina and several other states as well.
This columnist will continue issuing event notices throughout the week.
Of course, you need not attend a large event to mark this solemn day...
What follows is a short list of ideas on how you can honor the fallen:
-Fly your American flag at half-staff in front of your home or business
-Gather with neighbors, family and friends in the town square, in front of city hall, or a park for a candlelight vigil
-If you know a family who has lost someone at the hands of an illegal alien, reach out to them and let them know they are not alone
-Take a few moments to email your Congressman and Senators and remind them that the crimes committed by illegal aliens could be easily prevented, if only our government would defend the border and enforce immigration laws
-If you attend church services, say a prayer for the victims as well as for their grieving families and ask your fellow parishioners to do the same
-Between now and November 3rd, call into local and national radio shows and inform them as to the purpose of National Remembrance Day

That group, under the direction of Maria Espinoza, recently completed a 25-state tour in which a quilt with names and faces of many of those who have been murdered by illegal aliens was displayed at various state capitols.
Espinoza is currently directing a campaign to raise awareness of the growing death toll in all 50 states.
Recently, Espinoza said: "Every day Americans are being permanently separated from their families through no fault of their own. It is time politicians 'represent' Americans or admit they cannot fulfill the job they promised to do and resign."
