A California mother whose son was murdered has hit back at George Soros for standing up for liberal district attorneys, saying he’s ‘helping criminals’.

“I don’t believe these district attorneys are acting like district attorneys. They’re more like undercover public defenders. They’re helping felons get released instead of helping my son’s case,” Imelda Hernandez told “America Reports”.

Hernandez previously voted for Soros-backed district attorney George Gascon but now says he must be removed from office after his son, Christian David Silva, was shot and killed in February 2020. Hernandez said that She was not living in Los Angeles County at the time her son was murdered.

“So many times, it’s not just one citizen living alone in the county. It’s other counties and out-of-state parents who are affected by its policies,” she said. told Sandra Smith.


Hernandez reacted to liberal mega-donor Soros by promising he had ‘no intention’ of slowing down his donations to progressive district attorneys and dismissed the idea that their policies were to blame for spikes in crime across the world. country.

“Some politicians and pundits have tried to blame recent crime spikes on the policies of reform-minded prosecutors,” Soros wrote in an op-ed. published sunday in the Wall Street Journal. “Research I’ve seen says otherwise. The most rigorous academic study, analyzing data from 35 jurisdictions, shows no link between electing reform-minded prosecutors and local crime rates.”

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon defended his policy on Tuesday amid criticism following reports that the deceased suspect accused of killing two El Monte, California police officers was on probation .

Soros tried to argue that policies implemented by prosecutors to whom he donated millions of dollars, including New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon, have been “popular” and “effective”.

In May, Hernandez joined two other mothers who lost their children to violent crimes in pushing to recall Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon.

The mothers claim that Gascon doesn’t care about the victims.


Recall campaign organizers said Gascon’s policies were “soft on crime” and that he should be ousted to “keep communities safe”. The announced campaign last week it had collected 350,000 signatures. Nearly 567,000 are needed by the July 6 deadline.

Hernandez told Fox News she had two virtual meetings with Gascon, but said he was “just reading a teleprompter.”

Conservative radio star Lourdes Ubieta said she would "never made a deal" with a group linked to George Soros.

Conservative radio star Lourdes Ubieta has said she would ‘never make a deal’ with a group linked to George Soros.

It’s the second callback attempt Gascon has been facing since taking office in December 2020. The 2021 attempt did not garner enough signatures by the filing deadline to move to a vote.

Hernandez, who worked on the first recall attempt, has since moved to Orange County, where she helps with District Attorney Todd Spitzer’s re-election campaign. Spitzer’s campaign slogan is #NoLAinOC.


Hernandez said other families’ cases go through the court system for two to five years without help from the prosecutor’s office.

“But yet the district attorney’s office, particularly George Gascon, is calling the families of the murderers to let them know and sympathize with the fact that they are trying to do everything they can to either re-convict them or remove any gun or gang allegation on their record. Leave us aside,” she said.
