February 3, 2020
Press Release

GILBERT, ARIZONA – Today, Congressman Andy Biggs announced that Mary Ann Mendoza will be guest at the 2020 State of the Union address. Mary Ann Mendoza became an ‘Angel Mom’ in 2014 when her son, Mesa Police Department Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, was killed by an illegal alien in a head-on car collision. Mary Ann is a fierce advocate for the ‘Angel Family’ community and fights tirelessly for enforcement of our immigration laws. Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:

“I am grateful for Mary Ann Mendoza’s work to advocate for border security and enforcement of our immigration laws, and I am honored that she would attend the State of the Union as my guest.  Congress’s refusal to secure the border, consistently enforce our immigration laws, and remove incentives for aliens here illegally, has contributed to the deaths of innocent Americans. These deaths were preventable, but for our government’s dereliction of duty.

“Thankfully, President Trump has made border security a priority of his administration, and he has taken several executive actions to secure the border and enforce our laws. Congress can – and must – do more, though. I call on my colleagues to join me in taking meaningful steps to secure our border and protect innocent American lives.” – Congressman Andy Biggs

“I am so honored to be attending the State of the Union as Congressman Andy Biggs’ guest. As a constituent of Andy’s, I am so proud of what he is doing, not only for Arizona, but for all Americans. To be present during this amazing night is going to be exciting as we head into 2020. I cannot thank him enough.” – Mary Ann Mendoza
