The murder of Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal alien sent shockwaves of anger and frustration throughout her home state of Iowa and across the nation’s heartland. As tears flowed for the intelligent and lovely sophomore who was attending the University of Iowa, renewed actions against the ridiculously neo-communist left were once again avowed by conservatives.
Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, was charged with first-degree murder and a bitter battle began between open border advocates and immigration revoke and reform proponents, prompting politicians to appear on cable news to protect the rights of illegal aliens.
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) jumped at the chance to visit CNN and John Berman and had a lot to say about the heinous murder of Tibbetts. Here is her heartless answer in full:
“You know, my — I’m so sorry for the family here, and I know this is hard not only for her family, but for people in her community, the people throughout Iowa. But one of the things we have to remember is we need an immigration system that is effective, that focuses on where real problems are. Last month, I went down to the border and I saw where children had been taken away from their mothers, I met with their mothers who had been lied to, who didn’t know where their children were, who hadn’t have a chance to talk to their children, and there was no plan for how they would be reunified with their children. I think we need immigration laws that focus on people who pose a real threat and I don’t think mamas and babies are the place we should be spending our resources. Separating a mama from a baby does not make this country safer.”
The real problem? I’d say Cristhian Bahena Rivera is indicative of the real problem, Senator Warren, and posed a “real threat.” Just ask the Tibbetts family and the many families that have fallen victim to Illegal immigrants’ violent crimes.
Cristhian Bahena Rivera has lawyered up with defense attorney Allen Richards, who is feverishly trying to convince everyone that Bahena Rivera is, in fact, legal.
Not according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman Shawn Neudauer, who said “law enforcement remains absolutely confident that we’ve correctly identified the suspect as an illegal alien from Mexico, based both on investigative interviews with him and on records checks.”
And that does not bode well for the prominent GOP Lang family, owners of Larrabee Farms, who employed the accused. The Langs have defended their process of vetting employees, including Bahena Rivera, but government records show the E-Verify service was not used by the farm.
Dane Lang, farm manager, is sticking to his story that he “presented an out-of-state government-issued photo identification and a matching Social Security card.”

Governor Kim Reynolds laid the blame at the steps of Congress – where it belongs. “As Iowans, we are heartbroken, and we are angry. We are angry that a broken immigration system allowed a predator like this to live in our community, and we will do all we can bring justice to Mollie’s killer.”
As students at the University of Iowa plan a memorial for their friend and classmate, Mollie Tibbetts, I’ll let John Phillips of Iowa express what the flyover folks feel about losing this beautiful, spirited girl when her torture and murder was preventable:
“Mollie Tibbetts was an Iowan. She was raised not far from me. She went to the University of Iowa, just like me. Rooted for the Hawkeyes. She had hopes, dreams, a good upbringing & a loving family cheering for her future. Then, in the most gruesome way possible, it all ended.
Mollie went for a run on one of those sleepy Iowa farm roads I grew up on. She was abducted, murdered & had her body dumped in a ditch by a third-world monster who should have never been within a thousand miles of Mollie.
Where is her TIME magazine cover? Where is her CNN Townhall? Where is the national protests for Mollie Tibbetts? Where is the outraged White House press corps screaming for Trump to do something?
But we don’t have to be silent in the face of American carnage.”
No, John, we do not.
