Her son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza of the Mesa, Arizona police department, was killed on May 12, 2014, in a violent head-on collision on his way home from work. He was killed by a repeat illegal criminal who had driven over 35 miles the wrong way on four different freeways before slamming head-on into her son’s vehicle going over 100 mph on a blind curved transition ramp. This illegal alien was high on drugs (meth) and was also drunk (over three times the legal drinking limit). Brandon was a fun-loving, incredible man/son/brother/uncle/grandson along with being an amazing police officer who took pride in his job and creating a stronger community.

Mary Ann’s fight has always been about honoring her son and also about getting our politicians on board with the fight to uphold immigration laws and to put Americans first She has spoken at numerous Trump rallies in Phoenix, Arizona, during the 2015/2016 campaign and was invited by President Trump to witness him signing the Immigration Executive Orders at Department of Homeland Security in January 2017.

Gangs at the Border

Gangs at the Border, by Pastor Casey Diaz

Casey Diaz has an incredible story to share about growing up in the L.A. gangs. Casey came to this country - legally - when he was two-years old from El Salvador. He was raised in Los Angeles in a dysfunctional family setting, which is one reason why Casey was successfully recruited into the Rockwood Street Locos when he was 11 years old.

Casey quickly adopted the gang lifestyle, which included stabbings, home invasion, and car thefts. He was convicted of second-degree murder at the age of 16, and when he turned 18, he was imprisoned with the worst of the worst in New Folsom State Prison in Sacramento, California.

While in prison, Casey had an amazing conversion experience and put his life in danger when he told the gang leadership that he was a Christian and could no longer be part of them. He was subjected to numerous beatings, but somehow survived. He is here today to talk about the dangers of gangs pouring through our southern border and what that means to our cities.

He is the author of The Shot Caller and will share with you his unique perspective on gangs in America and how they think and act.



Ranching on the Mexican Border

Ranching on the Mexican Border, by John Ladd

John Ladd discusses how life on his ranch on the Arizona-Mexico border has been drastically altered by illegal immigration.

John Ladd is a fourth generation rancher on his family’s San Jose Ranch, near Naco, Arizona. His great-grandparents homesteaded in 1896, and his grandmother continued ranching along with his mom and dad until the 1970s. His parents bought the ranch from his grandmother and mother’s siblings. Along with his parents and wife, he formed a partnership in 1990 that is still on-going with his dad, wife, and three sons.

They raise cross-bred cattle, Hereford, Black Angus, Brahma and Red Angus and ride horseback on their round-ups. The ranch has a good road system and is used for putting out feed, checking waters, and fixing a lot of fences, as they are on the border. He is Second Vice President for Arizona Cattle Growers Association, Second Vice President for Cochise Graham Cattle Growers and was selected for the Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame. He joined Hereford Natural Resource Conservation District (NRCD) in 1992 as an advisor, following in the footsteps of his elders, became a supervisor in 2013, and recently became chairman. The Hereford NRCD has lost most of the medium-size ranches, due in part, to housing developments on 40-acre parcels that were ranches.

In response to losing the ranching cooperators, the district has started an effort to work with the small land owners. The Ladds have knifed and grubbed 6000 acres of brush and mesquite. Their largest project was the Horseshoe Draw Recharge Project. t captures flood water runoff, recharges the aquifer, and controls sediment going into the San Pedro River. It also stops e-coli from getting into the river. Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Hereford NRCD, and Cochise County were partners on the project. They also have replaced all their windmills with solar pumps. His favorite part of NRCD is being able to get conservation projects off the ground. Future projects will be to continue brush and mesquite control and developing more pipelines and drinkers.
