Brandon Randolph Michael 8/15/07

Brandon Randolph Michael was born on May 7, 1986 in Norfolk, Virginia to a Naval career family, Parents Robert & Kiyan Michael, Older Brother B.J, and younger sister Keilah Michael.

Brandon loved animals, both and wild and domesticated. Brandon knew no enemies. He had a sincere heart of giving and caring. Even as a young child, Brandon’s desire was to feed the hungry and would ask to give clothes out of his closet to the needy. He served as a page to Jacksonville’s city council, and in his local church as well as a life guard during the summer months. Brandon was full of life with a reassuring smile to all who knew him. Somehow, he sensed when others were hurting and made it his mission to reach out to them with his wide smile. He was an Advid Dallas Cowboy fan and Brandon loved and valued his family.

Brandon was engaged to be married but his dreams were cut short on August 15, 2007. While on his way to the bank during his lunch break, Brandon was hit by a twice deported illegal alien, causing his car to flip, killing him. The illegal alien, Mario Tellez, had been stopped by local law enforcement several months prior and was just given a fine for driving without a drivers license and released. After hitting our son, the illegal alien got out of his car and watched Brandon take his last breaths. The illegal refused to admit he was driving, (although he was the only person in the vehicle), causing the state of Florida to have to prove he was behind the wheel. Now, our family not only had to deal with the sudden lose of our middle child, we also had to endure a lengthy trail. After the illegal was identified by an enforcement officer that had been on the scene, he was sentenced to just two years and deported once again.

Brandon deserved to still be here. Because the state of Florida and our nation failed to secure Brandon’s safety by not enforcing our immigration laws and failed to enforce the laws we had, Brandon never received the justice due to him as an American citizen. As Brandon’s family, in 2017, we founded the Brandon Michael Foundation and begin to work hand and hand with Angel Families to bring much needed changes to our immigration laws and enforcement to better protect all Americans citizens. My husband Robert and I first met with law enforcement Officers in Hernando County as support to our Governors proposed 287g program. We are deligently working to meet with cities, county and state leaders and Sheriffs throughout Florida to encourage better communication and enforcement of immigration policies thereby further support 287g as well as eliminate and further prohibit sanctuary cities. We are hopeful we’re given the opportunity to travel to other states throughout the U.S. to help develop and encourage similar immigration legislation. Our family has been honored to be guest of Florida’s Govenor and First Lady DeSantis’ first state of the state address and 2019 Governor’s Black History Celebration.

Angel Families Update

Angel Families have been hard at work behind the scenes in the fight against Illegal Alien Criminals being in our country. We are fighting legislation in states that are introducing Policies to have Sanctuary Cities and Counties within their states. What this means to the average American is, the police departments and sheriff’s offices don’t comply with the 287g program that enables them to work hand in hand with ICE and place detainers on Illegal Alien Criminals so that they are turned over to ICE when they are released from city or county jails.

How safe can a community really be when Illegal Alien Criminals are number one; shown leniency in our court systems (meaning they aren’t given the same sentences American Citizens are for the same crimes) and number two; they are released onto our streets after committing crime and are not deported! Don’t let the liberal argument that having sanctuary policies in place actually make your communities safer; IT’S A LIE!!! These hardened criminals, who DON’T BELONG IN OUR COUNTRY, will commit more crimes because they know they have it easy in punishment from our courts! They KNOW they will never be deported as long as they stay in Sanctuary Cities and States! That tells you right there that they are concentrating in central areas in our country and have a strong hold; California, Oregon, Washington, New Jersey, New York, Illinois….the list is getting longer every month! We need to stay diligent and make sure these policies are not put into place in YOUR communities! We have to work together as a nation to bring these dangerous policies to a halt.

Angel Families have been testifying in Florida, Maryland, Nebraska and Colorado to try and stop Sanctuary Policies from going into effect. Please research and let us know if you hear of anything in your area that we can be of assistance in.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Warmest Regards,
Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza

Josh Wilkerson

Joshua Aaron Wilkerson

                      05/1992 - 11/2010

Wilkerson Family

George and Laura Wilkerson

Siblings: Adam and Amanda

Josh was our youngest son, he was 18 years old, and a senior in high school at the time of his death.  A classmate asked him for a ride home. Instead Josh coming home from school that day, we ended up with an autopsy report; Manner of Death: Abdomen Trauma, Head Trauma and Strangulation. His body was also set on fire after his death. He was tortured by a classmate that was in the United States illegally. This killer was brought to the U. S. by his parents from Belize. They were all Visa Overstays. His killer was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life. He has to serve 30 years before he is eligible for parole in Texas.

Josh was an incredible young man with dreams and aspirations for his life. He talked about joining the United States Air Force, following in his brother's footsteps. Josh was kind and compassionate. He had his own convictions and called Jesus his Lord and Savior. He was a blessing to our family. We know that he is home with the Lord; however, those of us left to mourn him are forever changed. We will continue to have a gaping hole in our souls until we are called home. This is a devastating blow to our family, extended family, friends and our community. He will be forever missed.

Psalms 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in ALL your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight."
