Today, we honor the life of Dominic Durden, who was killed 8 years ago by a criminal illegal alien. We also honor his mother and our dear friend, Sabine Durden-Coulter, for her strength and courage to fight for immigration reform in America and be an advocate for victims of illegal alien crime.
On July 12, 2012, Dominic Durden, a 30-year-old Riverside County, California sheriff’s dispatcher was on his way to work, when Juan Zacarias Lopez Tzun, 24, a criminal illegal alien, made an illegal left-hand turn in his unlicensed pickup striking Durden’s motorcycle. Dominic died at the scene.
Lopez-Tzun had a long criminal history, but was never reported to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) due to Riverside County’s sanctuary policy.
He was charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, able to bail out of jail for $10,000, and received a deal from the biased judge of 9 months in jail and 5 years probation. He only served 35 days for the murder of Dominic Durden. Lopez-Tzun was later deported back to Guatemala.
Sabine shares about her son, Dominic, in this video by FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform)…
Dominic was a young, vibrant and very successful young man who not only worked for the Riverside Sheriff’s 911 Communication Department, but also spent all his available time as a volunteer firefighter to help his community. He was studying to become a motorcycle police officer and his final goal was to be a helicopter pilot for law enforcement.
Dominic was highly respected and loved, known for his fun and loving personality, his laughter, big heart and kindness. He is dearly missed by his coworkers and many friends from all over the world.
Since his death, Sabine became an activist/advocate against illegal immigration. Her journey has taken her from testifying at a Judiciary Hearing in Washington, DC to be a guest speaker at the Republican National Convention. From being invited to the Inauguration of our 45th President to many visits to the White House to meet with President Trump and Vice-President Pence.
Sharing her experiences on various media outlets has given Sabine several opportunities to shed light on illegal immigration and the cost to America and its citizens. Dominic and the many other victims will never be forgotten, and their deaths will not have been in vain.

As we honor Dominic’s life, we also pray for Sabine, her husband, Anthony, and their family and friends. God bless you on this painful anniversary and know that John and I along with our entire team at the Conservative Business Journal stand with you in the fight against illegal immigration.
