Maria Espinoza, Co-founder and National Director of The Remembrance Project, was summoned to Washington in late January to stand with President Trump at the historic January 25, 2017 signing of his Executive Orders on BORDER SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT IMPROVEMENTS and on ENHANCING PUBLIC SAFETY IN THE INTERIOR OF THE UNITED STATES. This also coincided with the President’s swearing in of General John Kelly as the new U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS). Attending with Espinoza were five “Stolen Lives” family members from such border-war locations as Houston, Austin, and Mesa, Arizona, representing the tens of thousands of families whose loved ones have been brutally killed by illegal aliens.
At one point, Secretary Kelly privately thanked Maria for her efforts, as they stood behind and to the side of the President, whereas she congratulated him and assured him that The Remembrance Project and all patriotic Americans stand in solidarity with him to make America safe again.

With the signing of the President’s two executive orders, Espinoza and the entire body of border security and law enforcement proponents breathed a collective sigh of relief. These Presidential orders marked a dramatic reversal of illegal aliens who come here, many of whom have killed, even murdered, Americans, and who have perpetrated numerous other crimes against our citizens and upon those who are here legally.
Later Ms. Espinoza would say, “President Trump is a man of his word, a promise keeper to our grieving American families and to all Americans. Finally, 8 years of Obama’s lawlessness is being replaced withlawfulness, and it comes to America not one day too soon. As Americans, we can now envision a day when only those who are its citizens, along with our invited guests, will be sitting at the American table of freedom, justice and prosperity.”
