With the help of FOX & Friends’ viewers, the Stephen Siller Tunnels To Towers Foundation raised over $350K to pay off the mortgage for the widow and son of California police Corporal Ronil Singh who was killed in the line of duty. The expenses not only covers the family’s mortgage, but will also go towards education for Singh’s five-month-old son.
“Friends, family and fellow law enforcement mourning the loss of California police Corporal Ronil Singh after he was tragically killed in the line of duty,” “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt said Monday morning. Singh was killed by an illegal immigrant who was free due to California’s sanctuary policies.
“This is a criminal illegal alien, with prior criminal activity, that should have been reported to ICE,” Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said Friday in Modesto, Calif. “We were prohibited — law enforcement was prohibited — because of sanctuary laws, and that led to the encounter with Officer Singh.”
To aid with the loss of income that Singh’s wife must now handle, Tunnels To Towers stepped in and began a campaign to raise money for the family. CEO Frank Siller appeared on “Fox & Friends” last Friday pledging to raise the funds to pay off the family’s mortgage.
“It was right here on FOX & Friends that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation pledged to raise $300,000 to help pay off the Singh’s family’s mortgage,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said.
And on Monday, co-host Steve Doocy asked for an update from Mr. Siller.
“That’s right and they had not done that last week last week but CEO Frank Siller joins us right now with a big update and Frank you were here on the program at the end of last week. You made your pitch, you told his story as we just recapped over the last two weeks worth of TV coverage. And what’s your update?”
“Well I’m very proud to announce with the help of FOX & Friends viewers and most certainly you guys here, that we not only reached the $300,000 to pay off the mortgage, because of the generosity of Americans that we went over that – we were able to give them an extra $50,000 for educational leads for the five-month-old and it goes even beyond that,” Siller responded. “Mika Singh, the widow, wanted to pass on her thanks to FOX & Friends, to you personally, and to the viewers because they know without your help that this couldn’t happen. She expressed such relief that she’s never going to have to worry about this mortgage again and that there’s other money to help her son.”
