You believe in the dreamers? I believe in two girls brutally murdered!

Nisa Mickens’ body was found on Stahley Street in Brentwood, New York on September 13, 2016, the day before her 16th birthday. Her friend Kayla Cuevas was found dead the next day in a nearby backyard. Police said both teens had significant injuries to the head and face, as well as cutting injuries, and died of blunt force trauma.

“These murders show a level of brutality that is close to unmatched,” Suffolk County police commissioner Tim Sini told CBS.

MS-13 gang members, who have been charged in the murders, are known for using bats and machetes to kill their victims. Robert Capers, the United States District Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said Mickens was so badly beaten around her face that she was barely recognizable.

“The murders of these teens are particularly disturbing,” he said. 

The girls were celebrating Mickens’ upcoming birthday when they were attacked.

President Trump recognized the girls’ parents during his State of the Union address, saying “everyone in America is grieving for you.”

You believe in the dreamers?  Awesome.  You have that right.  But Trump got it so right on so many things last night.

Included in a portion of his speech that had me cheering?

Americans are dreamers too.

Believe in the dreamers but have sympathy for those two girls that were savagely beaten.  Wrap your brain around the fact that they were so beaten up that they weren't recognizable.  Consider the fact that it wasn't enough for these monsters.  They had to hack them with machetes too.

Commonsense indicates that we must get a handle on immigration. 

Does that mean cutting off immigration completely?  No.  Not at all.  Might it mean that we take a pause to ensure that we have people assimilating into our society?  That might be an idea in my opinion.

Regardless, this is a tragedy. 

We've got to do a better job of telling the other side of the immigration story.
