(FOX NEWS INSIDER) - The mother of a police sergeant who was killed by an illegal alien appeared on "Fox and Friends" to honor her son's memory, and express some of her frustrations with Washington and the state of the country.
Her son Brandon Mendoza was killed in a head-on collision with a drunk driver with a criminal record who'd been in the country illegally for two decades.
Mary Anne Mendoza has been trying to turn the tragedy into legislative action that would prohibit illegal immigrants from obtaining drivers licenses, and she said she has learned a lot from meetings with lawmakers and other families.
"I had no idea what a huge problem this was until it happened to me," Mendoza said. "I don't want any other American family to go through what I've gone through the last year and a half of my life."
