Sen. Elizabeth Warren couldn’t care less about the murder of Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal alien. In fact, she openly admits that the rights and needs of illegal immigrants take precedence over those of U.S. citizens. This is not only shameful, but treasonous.
When asked on CNN about the murder of the 20-year-old Iowa college student by Cristhian Bahena-Rivera, a 24-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, Warren replied that, although she is “sorry for the family,” America needs to focus on “the real problems” affecting our immigration system. And what are those?
“Last month I went down to the border, and I saw where children had been taken away from their mothers. I met with those mothers who had been lied to, who didn’t know where their children were and there was no plan for how they would be reunified with their children,” Warren said. “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 places we should be spending our resources. Separating a mama from a baby does not make this country safer.”
Incredible. A young American woman, with her whole life in front of her, is brutally murdered and her body dumped in a rural Iowa cornfield. The admitted killer, Rivera, said he followed Tibbetts as she was jogging and when the frightened college student told him that she was going to call the police, he claims he allegedly “blacked out.” He then killed Tibbetts, placed her body in the trunk of his car and drove to dispose it at a nearby cornfield. To hide his heinous crime, Rivera covered Tibbetts’ body with corn stalk. Her family and friends are devastated. For over a month, Tibbetts’ parents, especially her grief-stricken father, searched desperately in the hopes of finding her alive. Mollie is now gone; her family’s lives are shattered forever; an innocent American is dead. Yet, Warren believes the problem is illegal aliens being separated from their families at our southern border?
Fauxcohontas is showing her true colors: She doesn’t give a damn about what happens to U.S. citizens. In her perverse progressive worldview, the rights—and lives—of illegal aliens trump those of Americans. The fact is that Tibbetts has been permanently separated from her family. Her “mama” will never see her again. That Warren cannot or will not comprehend this basic tragic reality reveals her complete lack of moral decency and integrity. She is a globalist ideologue who believes that Tibbetts—and countless others like her—must be sacrificed at the altar of open borders and multiculturalism.
Tibbetts’ death boils down to one seminal truth: Rivera had no business being in our country. Had America’s immigration laws been enforced, Tibbetts would be alive today. Her murder was not only vile and reprehensible: It was senseless. This is what happens when a country refuses to secure its borders; criminals and predators are allowed to pour in. Tibbetts joins a long list of Americans—Kate Steinle, Matthew Denice and countless others—who have been killed by illegal aliens. Tibbetts’ parents also now join the thousands of Angel moms and dads who continue to beg their own political leaders to stop the slaughter of our sons and daughters. The area where Tibbetts was killed is full of sanctuary cities. Rivera had been living there for several years because he was able to work at a local dairy farm.
Our political elites, especially, pro-Third World globalists such as Warren, have blood on their hands. Just ask Mary Ann Mendoza. An illegal immigrant who was driving drunk killed her son, police officer Brandan Mendoza, in a head-on collision. She blasted Warren for her utter indifference to the countless American lives lost due to the onslaught of unlimited illegal immigration.
“What I want to say to her is stop lying to the American people,” Mendoza said to Tucker Carlson on his FOX News show. “[Y]ou don’t care what is happening to the victims of illegal alien crime, because if you did, you would be standing up for us and doing something about it.”
She added: “[Politicians] are ignoring the American people crying for help and they’re stepping over dead American bodies in their rush to protect illegal alien criminals.”
Mendoza is right. The illegal aliens that Warren is staunchly defending are foreigners who entered our country illegally. Their families are no longer being separated; almost all, in fact, have been reunited. Moreover, had they come into America, allegedly seeking asylum, through the legal ports of entry they never would have been separated in the first place. But that is irrelevant. Warren’s job—her constitutional duty—is to put the interests of her fellow citizens first. Instead, she lobbies ferociously on behalf not only of non-Americans, but criminals and law-breakers, who are exploiting our welfare benefits, stealing American jobs, driving down wages, committing violent crimes and murdering innocent citizens. She calls for the abolition of ICE (which is the agency responsible for deporting thugs, such as Rivera), mass amnesty for 12-30 million illegal aliens, the proliferation of sanctuary cities and an open border with Mexico. In the face of an historic invasion from the South, Warren is a Quisling who champions appeasement and surrender.
Tibbetts’ death has clearly sparked national outrage. I only hope it finally spurs action to build a wall along the southern border. I’m not, however, holding my breath. This is why Massachusetts’s voters need to take this issue into their own hands. In the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate on Sept. 4, voters should pull the lever for state Rep. Geoff Diehl. He is an America First conservative, who supports Trump’s wall, wants to enforce our borders and crack down on sanctuary cities. Diehl is the anti-thesis of Warren—a populist, a patriot and an ally of law-abiding taxpayers.
Warren has given up on America. We need to give up on her.
