  1. I live in California and am a member of We the People Rising , we are associated with The Remembrance Project (Maria Espinoza in Texas). We honor and memorialize those killed by illegal aliens and make efforts to raise public awareness. I am keeping a list of those killed by illegal aliens (across the nation) SINCE the murder of Kate Steinle (7-1-15)–it has impact when I show the list, printed on a long sheet, to people/groups. I now have 61 people listed who would still be alive if we enforced our immigration laws. OF COURSE we KNOW that number is ever so much greater–I don’t add to the list unless I can cite a resource. With the case above, I see hints: no driver’s license and multiple surnames–but after research, I don’t see anything definitive related to his immigration status. Would appreciate your assistance!!
