Dad of Man Killed by Illegal: Trump Gets 'Credit' for Listening

By    |   Wednesday, 22 Jul 2015 06:05 PM

The heartsick father of an Arizona man murdered by an illegal immigrant last year credits Donald Trump with bringing much-needed attention to America's border crisis.

"I will credit Donald Trump for definitely bringing this to the forefront … Donald Trump has made very clear his feelings," Steve Ronnebeck said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Ronnebeck's son Grant, 21, was working as a clerk in a convenience store last January when he was shot in the head, allegedly by an undocumented immigrant previously convicted of a crime and released.

"Grant was probably one of the nicest people that anyone could meet. His smile is infectious. Even when he was a baby it was infectious," Ronnebeck told Steve Malzberg.

"He was never in a bad mood, he never treated anybody ill. He was just that good of a person."

Ronnebeck said the recent fatal shooting of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco also helped bring attention to the problem.

"There's a lot of us that feel the same way. Once [Trump] made those statements, it felt like somebody was listening."

Trump has been under fire
for calling some immigrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border rapists and drug dealers.

Ronnebeck is now pressuring lawmakers to enact "Grant's Law," a bill written by Rep. Matt Salmon, an Arizona Republican.

"Basically … what it does is these illegal aliens are not released back onto the streets. They are immediately turned over to ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement], they go to the top of the list for deportation," Ronnebeck said.

"Those deportation hearings must happen within 90 days. There's no chance for them to hit our streets again."
