Terry Strada

Terry Strada is a mother, 9/11 widow, Special Interest Advocate and National Chair for 9/11 Victims’ Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism. In this role, Terry serves as a liaison between the 9/11 victims’ families & survivors, the United States Congress and Media.

From her home in New Jersey, Terry traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with Senators, Representatives, House and Senate leadership offices, as well as the Legislative Directors who are responsible for national security and terrorism legislation. After years of working to enact legislation in Congress, Terry is now focusing her attention on the rising threat of Political Islam in America.

Terry helped create a grassroots campaign to advocate for declassification of the redacted 28 pages from the Joint Congressional Inquiry Into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attack of September 11, 2001. Her efforts paid off and upon release of nearly all material, it was illustrated categorically that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia played a role in aiding and abetting some, if not all of the 19 hijackers while here in this country.

But Terry Strada wasn’t finished. She then turned her full attention to the enactment of JASTA (Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act). She spearheaded a bipartisan movement on Capitol Hill, which called for the utilization of our civil justice system for terrorist victims' families as a tool against the enormous amount of financial support stemming from the Gulf region and into terrorist organizations like al Qaeda, ISIS, and Boco Haram to name a few.

In spite of a multi-million dollar anti- lobbying campaign paid for by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Obama Administration’s misguided attempts to derail the legislation, Terry organized a protest of President Obama’s pledge to veto JASTA. After the President’s veto message was returned to Congress, Congress handed President Obama his one and only veto override of his tenure with an overwhelming vote of 97-1 in the Senate and 348-77 in the House of Representatives. On September 28, 2016, JASTA became LAW OF THE LAND.

Terry Strada is published in multiple news outlets and has frequently been interviewed on national radio shows and television news agencies, including CNN, Fox Business, BBC International, the Today Show, Fox News, The Hill, Daily Caller and more. She’s also been a featured speaker at multiple press conferences in Washington, DC and various events in New York City.

Mary Ann Mendoza

Mary Ann Mendoza is the Angel Mom of Brandon Mendoza. Brandon, a Sergeant with the Mesa, AZ police department, was killed on May 12, 2014, in a violent head-on collision on his way home from work. His life was stolen by a repeat illegal criminal who had driven over 35 miles in the wrong direction on four different freeways before slamming head-on into Brandon’s vehicle on a blind-curved transition ramp. Mary Ann later learned that this illegal alien was not only high on Methamphetamines but also had a blood-alcohol level greater than three times the legal limit.

The loss of her incredible son—a fun-loving, cherished family man and a police officer who went to extensive lengths to not only protect but also strengthen his community—drove Mary Ann to a platform she never previously envisioned. She’s now earned national recognition as a fierce defender of America’s security…fighting to hold politicians accountable in upholding immigration laws which place the welfare and safety of Americans first.

Because of her tenacity to remain on her feet after such great loss, Mary Ann has been called to the center or our nation’s immigration debate, speaking at numerous events such as National Press Conferences (including one held at the White House), Presidential rallies, nationally-televised Town Halls, and the 2016 Republican National Convention.

In 2017 her dedicated efforts were honored as she stood beside President Donald Trump when he signed Immigration Executive Orders at the Department of Homeland Security. She was also invited to be present as Secretary Kelly announced the opening of the VOICE (Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement) Office in Washington DC on April 26, 2017.

On March 20, 2018, Mary Ann Mendoza was invited to Round Table discussions at the White House regarding Sanctuary Policies and was invited back to the White House in June of that year to talk directly to President Trump on the Permanent Separation of American citizen’s children at the hands of illegal alien criminals living in our country.

With guest appearances on many national news outlets, Mary Ann has repeatedly stepped up and out—through the pain—to make her voice heard. She invites anyone who has been affected by Illegal Alien Crime to contact her at

The Angel Families organization allows victim’s families an opportunity to join efforts on educating the public on the magnitude of crimes that are committed against Americans on a daily basis. Their mission is to debunk the notion that mainstream media has led the American public into believing; that we are against immigrants. Mary Ann states, “We are NOT against legal immigrants, we are against ILLEGAL ALIENS committing crimes against Americans and being allowed to have less accountability for crimes they commit than American citizens.”
