The man who has been the face of the criminal illegal immigration issue in the Donald Trump campaign has been noticeably absent from recent campaign-related activities surrounding immigration policy.
Jamiel Shaw, whose son was murdered by a criminal illegal immigrant in 2008, was a featured speaker at the GOP convention:

He’s been on the stump with Trump:
He traveled with the presidential contender:
But, though Trump name-checked him during the speech, Shaw was conspicuously absent from the presidential candidate’s big immigration speech this past week in Arizona:

Shaw told Independent Journal Review that he purposely wanted to see what Trump would propose after all the discussion in the media about the presidential contender “softening” his position on illegal immigration:
“It was a very important place to be, but I have to make a stand. I was holding off to see what he was going to do. I wasn’t endorsing anything up front.”
Members of a group called ‘Angel Moms (and Dads)’ were on stage with Trump. We asked why Shaw wasn’t there to stand with the other parents of children who had been killed by illegal immigrants:
“I’m not an ‘Angel Mom,’ I’m not in that organization and I didn’t want to be labeled as such. I wanted to separate from it. I’m not wearing the t-shirt.
We started with the ‘Remembrance Project’ [from which it spun off] but I didn’t like where it was going. I know how this stuff works. Emote and do nothing.”
He told Independent Journal Review that, of course, he empathizes with and has high regard for those parents on stage with Mr. Trump:
“I knew everybody on the stage and they’re good parents.”
But, as he put it on Twitter, he’s been a “Pissed Off Dad since 2008” — well before the group started.

He told us that the components of his son’s case are different from those of many of the ‘Angel Moms.’
Shaw’s case comprises a variety of laws that were broken: the murderer’s early release from prison, the fact that he was a known gang member, that he was illegally in the country, as well as the fact that he was a felon with a gun.
The day the murderer got out of jail (in 2008), he was told to kill a black person as part of a gang ritual. Jamiel Shaw II, known as “Jas,” was his victim. He was shot in cold blood on an LA street:

Shaw says Trump’s proposals to enforce current laws are basically what he calls “Jamiel’s Law,” including putting an end to sanctuary cities and requiring the deportation of criminal illegal immigrants:
“I can roll with it. I’ve been trying to get the same thing. Deport criminal aliens and some people will self-deport when they find out the law will be enforced. Then it’s your fault if you’re still illegally here and enforcement happens.”
Shaw says he remains a big fan of Trump’s:

He told Independent Journal Review: “I didn’t go to Harvard, but I’m not crazy. I’m an expert on this issue.” He added that “we can do so much work on this issue,” such as E-verify and the 287-g program.
As he put it, “Trump is going to do stuff FIRST. Nobody else has done that.”
