Murder Charge for Illegal Alien Shows Need for Border Action

First here is a quick word about the plea deal on August 21 by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen:

The media are whipping up their usual hysteria about Cohen as if this is the end for the president. This is their “case of the week” that is supposed to bring down Trump (last week it was Omarosa, remember?).

But from reading and listening carefully across the conservative media believes that president Trump is in no legal danger first and foremost because Cohen is perceived as a sleazy guy who will say anything to save himself.

Second, alleged ‘hush-money’ payoffs from one private citizen to another – Trump (before he was elected) to Stormy Daniels – are not illegal, while those alleged payments have never even been proven.

It is typical that Democrats and Mueller are relying on such a lowly character as Cohen to get Trump, just as they have relied on Omarosa, Stormy, Strzok, Comey, etc.

Now here is today’s main commentary:

The murder of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts allegedly by an illegal immigrant from Mexico who led police to the body is yet another wake-up call that America needs to act on immigration security and build The Wall on the southern border.

Stories about illegal immigrant crime number in the millions, from drunken driving up to murder, rape, drug dealing and child molestation. The Fake News media do their best to squelch the stories except locally where they are forced to report them.

But they cannot stop the Mollie Tibbetts story because it became a national story before it was known who had committed the murder. So now they are compensating by avoiding mentioning that the murderer was illegal. The Daily Caller reports:

The New York Times opted to delete the immigration status of the man suspected of killing Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts in an update to a headline about the incident Wednesday.

According to the Twitter account Editing the Gray Lady, The Times made a number of changes to the headline of its story on Tibbetts’s murder before finally falling on “Immigrant Is Charged In Mollie Tibbetts Murder in Iowa, and Trump Seizes on Case.”

Initially, after editors at The Times learned that an illegal immigrant was the suspect behind her murder, the headline read “Trump Seizes on Killing of College Student, After Undocumented Immigrant’s Arrest.”

After several minor changes over the next two hours, The Times eventually deleted the word “undocumented,” with the current headline reading “Immigrant is Charged in Mollie Tibbetts Murder in Iowa, and Trump Seizes on the Case”

In other words we are supposed to focus on Big Bad Trump rather that the fact that the immigrant is illegal and committed murder.

We can be sure that the US media will generally spike the story going forward. You can be sure, however, that Republican candidates will be making a major issue of this story.

Just to show how much serious illegal alien crime there is, here are two stories from just one single day, August 22, and these stories are just a tiny fraction of the crime committed by illegal immigrants on any given day. This first one is from Fox News:

An Illinois judge on Monday slammed the officials who failed to enforce a 2012 ICE detainer on an illegal immigrant who later was able to beat and rape three women — even though he “shouldn’t have been in this country.”

Miguel C. Luna, 37, a Mexican national who was living in Joliet, was given the maximum sentence of 80 years in prison on Monday after he admitted last May to the physical and sexual assaults of two women who were running on a state trail in separate incidents in 2015 and 2016. Luna also admitted to raping a third woman who has since died.

“You shouldn’t have been in this country,” Judge David Carlson said… “The system let the victims down in this case.”

Luna was arrested for the rapes in May 2015. He faced 16 to 40 years on each of the two felony criminal assault counts. Carlos ordered him to serve the sentences consecutively, serve at least 85 percent of the sentences – 68 years – and register as a sex offender if he is every released from prison.

Here is another story from the same day from The Daily Caller, which is a conservative site:

An illegal immigrant who is charged with murdering his girlfriend in Shakopee, Minnesota, has a criminal history and had been previously deported to Mexico.

Fraider Diaz-Carbajal, 35, stabbed his girlfriend, Enedelia Perez Garcia, 27, to death during an argument on August 12 and then tried to kill himself by slashing his own throat. Diaz-Carbajal was hospitalized in critical condition and was booked into jail on Monday.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement that they have placed an immigration detainer on Diaz-Carbajal. They also noted that Diaz-Carbajal has a criminal history consisting of numerous misdemeanor convictions, including three DUIs and one for domestic assault. He was deported to Mexico in 2012.

Meanwhile CNN’s Chris Cuomo, brother of “America was never that great” governor Andrew Cuomo, blamed the shocked reaction to the Tibbetts murder on race, saying:

“Demonizing people because of their decision to take a shortcut and get here the easy way. And that is what causes illegal entrants most of the time. I wonder if these sympathizers would be as full throated about these tragedies if the killers were white citizens, if the victims were not young white women. If that were the case, would we see a video like this from Trump today?”

Cuomo then played a video the president tweeted out of himself on the murder.

Here are two alarming details about Iowa. Breitbart News reported on August 22:

Mollie Tibbetts’ suspected killer was verified as a legal worker, even though he is an illegal immigrant, says his employer, who is the owner of a dairy farm in Brooklyn, Iowa.

… One explanation for the contradictory information (about the killer’s legal job status on the Iowa farm) could be that the alleged killer used someone else’s identity to get the job…

The federal E-Verify system asks job applicants for their Social Security Number and birthdate, he said. It is possible the hiring manager completed the process and got initial approval from the E-Verify system that the person with the claimed identity was legally allowed to work in the United States — but then did nothing once the E-Verify system subsequently reported that multiple people were using the same SSN and birthdate combination, he said.

Notice the words “it is possible the hiring manager… then did nothing”. This will be a media tactic to shift the spotlight from the murderer to the American hiring manager. Then Breitbart incredibly continues further down in the story:

However, employers say that if they reject job-applicants for suspect documents, they open themselves up to lawsuits, including by the federal government. In 2012, for example, officials working for former President Barack Obama punished a farm business for seeking extra identification information:

So there you go. It was Obama’s open-borders policies that allowed the alleged murderer to easily enter the US in the first place while Obama administration pressures ultimately helped the murderer to find and keep employment, leading to his presence in Iowa and the killing of Mollie Tibbetts.

This was like Obama’s Promise Program that allowed the Parkland, Florida high school murderer to escape detention and prosecution even though he was well-known as a dangerous threat by school officials, Florida law enforcement and the FBI. Within hours of the Parkland murders, in fact, students were saying that they were certain that the killer could do something like that.

It gets worse. Fox News reports:

The illegal immigrant charged with killing Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts worked on a dairy farm for years under a false name just a few miles from where the young woman was allegedly abducted while running last month, his employer said Wednesday

Look at this from Breitbart about the Iowa illegal:

(The alleged killer’s) attorney is now seeking a gag order to prevent the government from referring to the accused killer as an “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant,” claiming he has legal status to be in the U.S.

Amazing. We can be sure that liberal lawyers will aggressively seek to free him.

Left-wing politicians are joining in the chorus. continues to believe that Democrat US senator Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren of Massachusetts may very well lose her seat in November. To show why, here is what she said recently when asked about the Mollie Tibbetts murder:

“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.”

In other words Warren is more concerned about the temporary separation of illegal immigrant children from their illegal alien parents than about the permanent separation of American Mollie Tibbetts from her parents.

Even many liberal voters in liberal Massachusetts find this type of rhetoric shocking and unacceptable.
