Illegal Alien Who Murdered Mollie Tibbetts Doesn’t Want To Be Called Illegal

This is insane

(Daily Caller) The attorney for the accused murderer of Mollie Tibbetts filed a gag order on Wednesday to prevent his client from being referred to as an illegal alien.

The defendant, 24-year-old Christian Bahena Rivera, has been charged with first degree murder for the slaying of Iowa college student Tibbetts. Rivera led investigators to the Tibbetts’ body in a cornfield after he admitted that he followed her while she was running. (snip)

The gag order purports that by referring to Rivera as illegal, he will be denied a fair trial, and consequently, the government must not refer to him as anything other than a “documented resident.”

This does only apply to how the government describes him. The Credentialed Media is mostly happy to play along. That said, the NY Times runs an interesting piece delving into who Rivera is, strangely well done and with facts, which includes

His lawyer, Allan M. Richards, said Mr. Bahena Rivera had been a law-abiding employee since arriving in the United States. “He’s here living the American dream and working seven days a week, 12 hours a day, and trying to do his best at his job,” Mr. Richards said. He said Mr. Bahena Rivera’s family members were not yet willing to speak publicly.

Federal officials said they have no record of Mr. Bahena Rivera entering the country legally and said that he appeared to have used false documents to obtain employment.

Mr. Lang (owner of the farm where Rivera worked) said Mr. Bahena Rivera had been hired at the farm in August 2014 after presenting a valid Social Security number, which was checked with a federal database, and a state-issued identification card. The new employee was known around town as Cristhian Bahena Rivera, but around the farm by the fraudulent name listed on those documents, a name the authorities did not disclose.

Perhaps Mr. Richards could tell us just how Rivera came to live in the U.S. in what he says is a legal manner making him “documented”. And explain the use of false documents.

    Lawyers Shameless [email protected]&rds.

    Why doesn’t he ask for an injunction disallowing the references to the victim as “deceased”, or “murdered”, and instead referred to as “the girl in the cornfield” so as not to prejudice potential jurors?

    Is he here illegally?

    It’s stunning that the democrats are running to circle the wagons around this piece of shit. Democrats don’t even pretend to prefer citizens over illegals any more.
