Washington Post Is Upset That Murder Of Mollie Tibbetts By Illegal Brought Up Immigration Politics

The Washington Post, like most leftist outlets, is more than happy to jump to politics after every shooting (excluding all the ones that occur in gun restricting Chicago), but, when it comes to illegal immigration, they are exasperated that foes of illegal immigration would dare make it political

After arrest of undocumented immigrant in Mollie Tibbetts case, Iowa town tries to escape the inescapable: politics

Before one of their own went missing, before the nation’s gaze found them, before the White House made what happened here about immigration politics, the residents of this farming community of 1,500 people say they lived in relative harmony.

Together, the town of whites and Latinos, liberals and conservatives, spent their time on Jackson Street, dining on the south end at the one sit-down restaurant in town and attending class on the north end at Brooklyn’s only high school. They mingled at lunchtime in the Brooklyn Grocery and learned to smoke meat at the hardware store.

By late August, harvest season was coming, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church was accepting sign-ups for fall confirmation classes, and the residents of Brooklyn were entering their fifth week without answers in the disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old University of Iowa student who left for an evening run July 18 and never returned. Her hometown had spent the summer searching, praying and planting “missing” signs in the yards surrounding John Wayne’s boyhood home and Brooklyn’s “Community of Flags” display. Residents were united in their belief that eventually she would resurface — that soon all would be back to how it was before.

Then, police found Tibbetts’s body discarded in a cornfield. They charged Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a local farmhand, with her murder. And they announced that Rivera, who had no prior criminal history, was an undocumented Mexican immigrant.

What Brooklyn wanted was to mourn, to avoid the politics.

“It was a crime that was committed because of something on the inside,” said Tibbetts’s close friend, Paris Flack, 17, “not because of his skin on the outside.”

But within hours of Rivera’s arrest, the tragedy within this small community became about partisan political division everywhere else.

Yet, it didn’t need to be about partisan political division. This didn’t need to happen at all. Sadly, one political party, and a few squishy Republicans, take the side of people who are unlawfully present in the United States. They entice people to come to the U.S. illegally through their support of illegal immigration, as well as overstay their visas. They oppose border security, and want to get rid of the agencies tasked with enforcing federal law.

President Trump seized on the case, too, framing it as evidence that illegal immigration is a violent threat. At a rally in West Virginia after Rivera’s arrest, Trump presented Tibbetts’s death as a cautionary tale of us vs. them.

“You heard about today with the illegal alien coming in very sadly from Mexico,” he told the crowd, referencing Tibbetts’s death. “Should’ve never happened. . . . The immigration laws are such a disgrace.”

Seized! But, the one thing that the WP forgets to say is that Trump is 100% correct, per our laws. Here in Raleigh over the weekend

Raleigh police have arrested a man following a fatal motorcycle crash on New Hope Church Road. Neri Damian Cruz-Carmona, 26, has been charged with felony hit and run causing serious injury/death.

Officials say Cruz-Carmona is an undocumented or illegal immigrant and is under an ICE detainer.

Police were searching Saturday for the driver of a car that fled the scene after crashing into a motorcycle. The accident occurred about 12:45 a.m. on New Hope Church Road between Atlantic Avenue and Green Road, police said.

This should never have happened.

And how about

The list of violations goes on and on. The fault for these crimes resides on those who committed them. Those who support and enable illegal immigration bear a responsibility for the illegals who are committing these crimes.

    I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome. But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist. The act grievously extends the crime that stole Mollie from our family and is, to quote Donald Trump Jr., “heartless” and “despicable.” …

    The person who is accused of taking Mollie’s life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. …

    To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology. That you’ve been beset by the circumstances of Mollie’s death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to the American tapestry in all its color and melody.

    — Rob Tibbetts, father of Mollie Tibbetts

      Of course, the issue is not immigration or Hispanics or anything other than ILLEGAL immigration.

        When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. — Donald Trump

        Why are we having all these people from sh!th0le countries come here? — Donald Trump

      Wonder if daddy espoused his hatred for “white people” the way his daughter did.

    The GOP controls White House, the Senate, the House and the Supreme Court. They control most statehouses.

    Why don’t they enact the laws they feel will fix the problems? Why are they so afraid of criticism?

    The same question could have been asked of the last administration in 2009-2010.

    Got any answers for that?

    More proof that Ron was right 40 years ago – AND BOTH BUSHES HAVE BEEN DEAD WRONG! DEAD WRONG; as in Americans killed by criminal aliens “doing work Americans won’t!” Like rape and murder!
