Sarah Rae Ann Root

My name is Michelle Root, my daughter Sarah Rae Ann Root, was killed January 31st, 2016 by an illegal alien who was drunk driving (BAC .241) and street racing (70+ MPH). Sarah had just graduated (January 30th, 2016) with a 4.0 bachelor's degree in Criminal Investigations and while stopped at a stop light she was rear-ended by Edwin (Eswin) Mejia, a 19-year-old Illegal Honduran, who came to this country illegally and unaccompanied at age 16. He had several priors, failure to appear, driving the wrong way down a one-way street, no driver's license, child endangerment and no proof of insurance. His bond was set at $50,000 and he posted $5,000 on February 5th, 2016 and hasn't been seen since.

Sarah was a 21-year-old with her whole life ahead of her, she was full of life and was so excited to start the next chapter in her life. She is loved and missed dearly by her friends and family.

No matter how hard I fight it will never bring my beautiful daughter back but I will continue to fight so people can be educated on our Immigration Policies, the devastation that is caused by not following our Immigration Laws, to honor my daughter and to help others that have gone through this preventable tragedy.
