Trump blames Democratic immigration policies for death of Mollie Tibbetts

Some of Mollie Tibbetts’ family don’t want her death politicized

The arrest Tuesday of Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, has thrust a white-hot immigration debate to the forefront of national politics, exploding on social media from a state in America's heartland where Iowa's Republican governor, Kim Reynolds, condemned "a broken immigration system (that) allowed a predator like this to live in our community".

Preliminary autopsy results from the state medical examiner's office also determined that 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts was the victim of a homicide, the Division of Criminal Investigation announced in a press release.

On Wednesday, the former House Speaker said that Republicans have the opportunity to win big in November if they make an all-out effort to remind voters about Tibbetts' murder - especially if her murder can blot out other bad news for Donald Trump.

"Let's let the process go", he said Thursday. "And the father was saying she's coming back, she's coming back..." "But he's innocent, so he didn't run and hide". "Just thinking about the fact that the family was hoping to bring their daughter home and find out, a month later, that she'd been laying in a shallow grave in a corn field".

"It's not about race, it's about people joining together to do good", said Calderwood, who posted a similar message on Facebook.

"I hire people for their ability to do the work for my campaign", he said. We know that many of you will join us as we continue to carry Mollie in our hearts forever. When she threatened to call the police, he "panicked and got mad", but does not remember what happened next, the affidavit states. Authorities say her suspected killer, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, followed her in his auto as she ran along a country road before assaulting her. Rivera said at some point he looked down noticed Mollie's earpiece from her earbuds or headphones lying on his lap, and "realized he put her in the truck". This is a matter of the most serious importance of enforcing the laws on the books.

And one man provided the ideal response, explaining in a tweet that solution to this issue is to teach men to respect women who are going about their daily lives.

His often conciliatory tone, and poetic jibes directed at opponents, won admiration on both sides of the political divide.

A funeral for Tibbetts will be held on Sunday, August 26, in the gym of the BGM High School in Brooklyn, Iowa, at 2 p.m., KOLN-TV reported.

Rudd said the harassment she faces is usually verbal, but sometimes a man will try to touch her butt or block the sidewalk so she has to run in the street to avoid "accidentally" brushing against him. When Reding turned on the televised news conference, she was shocked to realize she recognized the man arrested for the crime. DailyMail.com revealed exclusive images of the dilapidated trailer where Rivera had been living for the past couple of years, next to a two-story farmhouse also owned by Yarrabee Farms. "I was like, 'Oh my god, I know him".

"I can just tell you it seems that he followed her and seemed to be drawn to her on that particular day and for whatever reason, he chose to abduct her", Rahn said.

The truth is that any young woman like Mollie Tibbetts (or myself) has a much greater chance of dying at the hands of a husband or boyfriend of any type than meeting harm at the hands of an undocumented immigrant in the United States.

"This was Page 1 of candidate Trump's playbook on immigration, linking illegal immigration to crime", he said.

Warren then pivoted to the Trump administration's unpopular family separation policies at the Mexican border, where she visited earlier this summer, concluding, "I think we need immigration laws that focus on people who pose a real threat".

Rivera's attorney, Allan M. Richards, wrote in a court filing that his client was in the country legally, adding that his employer had verified his status.
