How many Iraqis were killed by USA govt? Forgot.

Are you implying that because the US invaded Iraq, this girl deserved to be abducted and murdered? If so, what a foul comment and this is what drives people into the anti-immigrant camp

They are illegals so they shouldn't be here to start with. What's terrible is that this animal has made the lives of legal immigrants and Americans of Mexican descent more difficult.

Thankfully Japan takes its borders seriously and illegals have a very, very hard time here

Trump is politicizing the death of a young woman for his own gain. That is despicable. As if the man actually cares about other human beings.

Hey ! What happened to the mandatory mourning period before politicizing it ?

He's desperate. He's using her death to justify his mass kidnappings and to push foe a stupid Berlin-ish wall. He has no scruples whatsoever. He is unmanly, treasonous and treacherous. He has no morals, no manners and no class whatsoever. Using this young lady's death as an ego-enhancement tool is vile and disgusting. Trumpgrump has no care or thought anyone but himself. How does he sleep at night?

All of what Trump wants say is that the Caucasian Americans are victims of other races, including the Latinos. But this murder is he really an illegal foreigner in US? If the US govt. of Trump is going further, all the people who is going to US to visit/study/ work/live has to be super-monitored at the immigration entrances? OMG, I don't want to go to this Trump governed country for a while, I'll wait 'til next president will be replaced. That's too much to see Trump voice only the people chosen by him are angels and saints, the other devils!?? I love USA, but hate that government!!

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of this beautiful young lady. She seemed to be a person of promise, a caring and giving person, and, obviously, very bright. It is so very tragic that her life had to end so soon at the hands of a person who has no value on a human life.  

Illegal or Legal he better face justice in our country. No words to convey my sadness.  

To every young woman who might read this, I'll say to you, in the strongest manner that print allows, what I used to say to my daughter: Never, ever, isolate yourself, particularly in wooded areas and particularly at night. Please.

Like the way the Dems politicized the children separation debacle?

That is despicable. As if the man actually cares about other human beings.

Ok, so the man should not mention the woman, then he should mention the killer? No, because that would be racist? Should he accuse him? No, that would be racially profiling. So we can’t mention his name, his race or his status and we can’t talk a out this woman that was brutalized and murdered by this guy, who was in the country illegally. Liberals are going to lose so big on this one.

Could you get some of the Russian oligarchs in the US, or maybe some back in the motherland who do business in the US, to start a #gofundme for the parts of the wall that could feasibly be built?

RIP to the young woman.

Hats off to all police involved!

No, not like that at all. Trump is insinuating that illegal aliens are inherently dangerous, and is using this case to push for draconian measures to punish even asylum seekers. He's using an isolated case to generalize about a class of people. Democrats objected to the separation of children from their parents, which is abhorrent in almost all cases.

False equivalence.

so the man should not mention the woman, then he should mention the killer?

Why should the president mention this case unless he's politicizing it? He brings it up in one of his rallies because he loves throwing his cultist mob red meat. Illegal immigration is not a national security issue. Trump just uses it to stir up resentment among his disciples. Fear- and hate-mongering.

11 ( +13 / -2 )

Well, he's got to deflect, I suppose. With the apocalyptic storm over his inept and corrupt presidency and campaign etc, there's no better way than to point the finger at the foreigner.

Japan's tough immigration policy now looks prescient and inspired. Glad we don't these problems here

Apart from when it does, of course

A criminal killed a woman in one case, federal authorities detained children in the other. See the difference?

Yeah, Japan only has to worry about home grown criminals that have the same if not higher propensity to commit crimes. Whew...

As he should.

He's using an isolated case to generalize about a class of people.

Isolated??? This is why the left are out to lunch when it comes to immigration. Let me know and I’ll gladly provide you a list of isolated cases as you call it.

Democrats objected to the separation of children from their parents, which is abhorrent in almost all cases.

Democrats object because they don’t have any ideas except for regulations, raising taxes and entitlements and since the majority of middle class Americans don’t want anything to do with that crap, they need illegals to vote and or try to legalize them ASAP in order to have them vote Democrat in order to stay relevant, if they don’t and more people are waking up and see the scheme game the left is playing, this is why they object to closed borders. This is just crazy.

False equivalence.

No, the left just hate honest confrontation.

Why should the president mention this case unless he's politicizing it?

Why should he not, it’s news, is it not, it’s relevant, is it not? If the girl was Black and the President didn’t mention it, guess what? The left would complain that how dare the President ignore something this tragic. He’s ignoring I because she’s Black. Please don’t go there, the left have nothing to hold on in this situation, they lose hands down.

He brings it up in one of his rallies because he loves throwing his cultist mob red meat. Illegal immigration is not a national security issue. Trump just uses it to stir up resentment among his disciples. Fear- and hate-mongering.

As the left do as well. Whatever sells, if it works for one party, then something else works for another.

"Should've never happened. Illegally in our country. We've had a huge impact, but the laws are so bad. The immigration laws are such a disgrace, we're getting them changed, but we have to get more Republicans. We have to get 'em."

So, how does the account for all the Americans who murder people?

Build the wall to prevent more Mollie Tibbits. #SaveOurDaughters

Because Americans don't kill other Americans? So rather than the motive for the murder all Trumplets can focus on is his immigration status, because only illegal aliens kill 'beautiful' women, right?

Build your wall and no more murders? No more drugs and gangs and guns?

Utter bollocks.

No one is attempting to excuse Americans that commit murder or any other horrific crime. But it is worse when it is at the hands of someone that should never have been here in the first place.

How is it worse? Murder is murder, the immigration status of the murderer is irrelevant. Murdered at the hands of a Mexican illegal immigrant or at the hands of some American bloke from down the road... the girl is dead, THAT is all that matters.

It baffles me that so many American's accept illegal immigration is just a fact of life.

Its bizarre to me. It would not fly in Australia in a billion years nor any other country with any degree of common sense among its citizens.

Good thing he didn't use a gun. Then Trump would have been conflicted.

We are talking about illegals, please don’t deflect. The guy should have never been in the country. Well, now he will stay in this country and I hope he gets the ultimate punishment.

Both illegal and both breaking the law. So, with the exception of this murder, there’s really NO difference.

Good thing he didn't use a gun. Then Trump would have been conflicted.

Actually, he would not, in fact, he would double down and up the rhetoric of how we REALLY need the wall and would push even harder for it.

Hardly deflection - the point is that ANYONE is a potential murderer, not just illegal immigrants. It could have been Jim-Bob Redneck or Cardew Smithsonian-Hyde who could have killed the girl... the Mexican bloke didn't kill her because he was an illegal immigrant, he just so happened to be an illegal immigrant who killed someone.

How is that deflection?

Matt Hartwell, I agree!

It's an old trick, this. Shedding crocodile tears over a heinous crime and pointing the finger at Johnny Foreigner, thus the insinuation being that all foreigners are rapists and criminals.

Stir up the hate.

Of course tactic this will appeal to racist Trump followers.

6 ( +8 / -2 )

The FBI/State authorities is doing it's job as usual. Notice Trump will focus on anything except the justice department's investigation of his own wrongdoings.

I've been saying it for so long, but yes the difference between legal and illegal immigration is very important. Yes murders whether by US citizens or immigrants (both legal and illegal) are the same, but many US citizens feel like murder by someone from outside the country is much more preventable if said illegal immigrants are prevented from getting into US in the first place.

I want stronger border security, but I don't believe a wall is going to magically prevent it, short of fully militarizing the border with "trespass under pain of death".

Iowa doesn't have the death penalty. But feel free to fantasize about that if it makes you feel better.

Yup. That's all the "Democrat" party has. They is dumb.

--punish even asylum seekers. 

As he should.

Despite the atrocities committed by illegal alien immigrants, some still fell no threat. But of course it is OK as long as those actions are in the neighborhood of some one else .

Then the ultimate punishment is life in prison. It seems you were way ahead of bass in fantasizing, plastic.

You believe asylum seekers should be punished? Tell me more.

There are those whose circumstances warrant asylum and therefore are granted it. I assume that an asylum “seeker” mentioned above is one whose case has not yet been heard, hence may be held pending a decision. At which time the person is either released or punished. Not before.

Of course tactic this will appeal to racist Trump followers.

Probably. It will also appeal to racist anti-Trump people.

Your wall won't stop anything. Rowing boats can be used to smuggle onto American coasts, paragliders and microlights can fly around the wall, or even over it since there will be gaps. People can hide in vehicles, aircraft wheel wells, false papers... even the Berlin Wall was breached sometimes, or circumvented.

And the wall won't miraculously end murders... there are plenty of American citz prepared to kill their countrymen for drugs, out of boredom, insanity, over who will play Aretha in a movie... there will always be ways to get guns into America... you love the things after all... gangs? Plenty of them too. Drugs? Silly question....

My point is that by targeting illegal immigrants for causing all of America's ills you are sliding down a slippery slope to somewhere terrible unpleasant.

Will this tragedy make any Democrats change their minds and support building the Wall?

I didn’t and never said he should face the death penalty. Life without the possibility of parole in a 23 hour lockdown in solitary confinement will do just fine. That would equally suffice.

You believe asylum seekers should be punished?

If they enter in the country illegally breaking the law, yes, sir. Asylum or not.

OK. You're on. Give us the list

You are welcome as always.

Now let’s have an honest conversation, put down the CNN mug for a moment. It’s quite simple, if you have a proper vetting system, proper immigration laws and a sealed border, selecting people based on merit and scrutinizing and thoroughly screening illegals, making sure, criminals don’t slip through the cracks, we don’t have to worry about American citizens being murdered by people that shouldn’t be here in the first place.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Your wall won't stop anything.

No, but it will make it a lot easier to slow them down and to more easily apprehend these people.

Rowing boats can be used to smuggle onto American coasts, paragliders and microlights can fly around the wall, or even over it since there will be gaps. People can hide in vehicles, aircraft wheel wells, false papers... even the Berlin Wall was breached sometimes, or circumvented.

If you have a Wall and increase the presence of the border patrol. You will considerably slow them down dramatically.

And the wall won't miraculously end murders... there are plenty of American citz prepared to kill their countrymen for drugs, out of boredom, insanity, over who will play Aretha in a movie... there will always be ways to get guns into America... you love the things after all... gangs? Plenty of them too. Drugs? Silly question....

Yes, but if you implement all the above mentioned tactics, it will be extremely difficult for drug dealers to ship or bring their products into the US.

My point is that by targeting illegal immigrants for causing all of America's ills you are sliding down a slippery slope to somewhere terrible unpleasant.

i don’t think so, not at all, now to the Democrats is all about racism talk.

Alive and Safe, Mollie isn’t, the kids separated can always be reunited with their parents, go to school, graduate perhaps, get a job, have a family, kids and grow old, Mollie will never have that chance, her parents will die knowing that the Democrats chose politics and race over the safety of the people and the people that put them in office and o protect them.

The ignorance of the left is just astonishing. Until a wall is built there will be no fruitful immigration policy. Obama had a similar problem with this, the difference being his administration never enforced the rules.

Most definitely. The left claim they are for border safety and yet, do nothing to safeguard the country along our open borders. The Democrats have been playing this game since Regan was President. But I think now more than ever this avoidable murder could have been stopped if all the elements were in place and the wall built.

The murder suspect (an illegal immigrant )worked on a farm owned by a Republican political leader in that state. How are the Dump fanboys and girls going to spin this?

Irony much?

Latest: Suspect worked at farm tied to a Republican leader.

Complete nonsense. Statistically speaking Obama deported more people than any other president, although the deportation status definition was broadened. Still. lots of illegals were kicked out under Obama.

@Toasted Heretic

A gross misinterpretation of the issue. The real insinuation is that foreigners who sneak into the country and stay illegally have a greater tendency to engage in criminal activity than the general population, since immigration officials are denied the chance to vet them.
