Another American Dream Ended

“It’s Brooklyn. You don’t lock your doors…We lock our doors now. Every night.”
– Dalton Jack, Mollie Tibbetts boyfriend of two years

She’s dead. And while we hoped for the best in our hearts we knew from day one that this would be the outcome. Sadly of late it seems it always is.

Mollie Tibbetts’ body was found in a cornfield but ten miles from her boyfriend’s home…found murdered by yet another illegal alien. Kate Steinle revisited…and as the Tibbetts family grieves…a depth of grief only the parents of murdered children can know…the Tibbetts family name now gets added to the ever-growing list of ‘Angel Families.’ And most of us grieve along with them for another young life has been taken by one who should never have been in our country in the first place.

Illegally…yet another Mexican criminal…a criminal by his very act of knowingly breaking our immigration laws to get and stay here…saw 24-year old Cristhian Bahena Rivera now being arrested and charged in Poweshiek County district court with first-degree murder while being held on a I.C.E. lodged immigration detainer with bail set at a five million dollar cash only bond. And this murderer led authorities directly to Mollie’s body…a body he threw face-up…a body he dumped like trash…into a cornfield where he covered her body with cornstalks and leaves a little over five weeks ago.

And so 20-year old Iowa University sophomore Mollie Tibbetts was dead from day one, something many of us suspected for quite some time now, and it tore at our heartstrings to watch her dad on T.V. begging and pleading with whomever he perceived to be her abductor to let his daughter go…holding onto a glimmer of hope that his beloved Mollie was still alive. But he probably knew all along the reality that she was already dead.

Common sense and knowing of Kate Steinle’s fate had to tell him just that.

By now Mollie’s story is well known, how in the early evening hours of July 18th, Mollie went jogging as she had done so many times before, and that authorities investigating her disappearance found just a few weeks ago a home surveillance video that showed a black car following a woman running…a woman who turned out to be the missing co-ed. And when the car was traced back to Rivera, who had been here illegally for almost seven years; worked for the past four years at Yarrabee Farms in Brooklyn, Iowa, where he passed the government’s E-Verify system (big red flag here folks as Rivera used a false identity and a phony social security card to secure employment); and who did not try to resist arrest; Rivera told police how he saw Mollie jogging and pursued her, getting out of his car and running alongside her until she warned him she would call the police if he didn’t stop following her.

And that made Rivera angry as per his police interview, but from here Rivera’s story borders on the truly absurd. Claiming he panicked and “blocked” his “memory,” after getting angry at Mollie for her threat to call the police, Rivera stated that he then “blacked out” but “woke up” at an intersection in a rural part of Poweshiek County and noticed a headphone earpiece in his lap which made him remember that he had put a young woman in the trunk of his car. Adding that when he took her out of the trunk he saw blood on the side of her head, he panicked and disposed of her body in the above stated cornfield.

And if you think that’s absurd how about the fact that Iowa does not have the death penalty so if convicted…as he should be…Cristhian Bahena Rivera will most likely get life in prison without parole and the people of Iowa…including the Tibbetts family themselves…will be footing the bill to keep their daughter’s killer alive for decades to come.

And so Mollie Tibbetts becomes but another statistic to add to the ever-growing number of those murdered by folks in our country illegally. And while this should anger each and every American down to their very core, unfortunately it does not. And why…because the fact is that little will be done to stop these killings as long as the Democrats don’t want the killing of innocents to stop. Better they let into our country and take care of illegals whose only thing the Democrats ask for in return is their votes, than it is to protect law-abiding American citizens from the very monsters who now walk amongst us.

Proof of the Democrats favoring illegals over American citizens can easily be found in the fact that after Kate Steinle’s untimely death at the hands of illegal criminal alien Jose Inez Garcia Zarat, 156 Democrats voted against Kate’s Law choosing instead to protect their future voting pool never mind that as of today the number of American citizens murdered by these monsters has now grown by one.

And as for the ‘open border’ kumbaya sorts response after learning of Mollie Tibbetts’ death…when Iowa’s Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds issued a statement that expressed heartfelt grief over Mollie’s death, offered condolences to her family, and praised law enforcement for their outstanding work on the case, she ended her statement by rightfully saying that Iowans “are angry that a broken immigration system allowed a predator like {Rivera} to live in our community.”

And angry Iowans are that “…a predator like Rivera” was living in one of their small Iowa communities, but the fault for that, besides our current immigration laws not being enforced, must also lie within Iowa’s state government itself as the state’s Democratic party recently denounced federal immigration laws and called for local officials not to enforce them. In fact, the Iowa Democratic Party 2018 platform, adopted at their convention this past June, in a section entitled ‘Statement of Principals’…which has suddenly been denied all internet access to…states, “We oppose: detaining undocumented minors, immigrant detention/deportation quotas, locally enforcing federal immigration laws, mass raids/related enforcement practices, religious exclusion, ‘papers please,’ unnecessary travel-bans, abrogating birthright-citizenship, separating minor children from their parents when they are trying to enter the country, internment and concentration camps.” And these words are a slap in the face not just to the memory of Molly Tibbetts but to all unfortunates like her.

So how did Democrat voters in Iowa react to both Mollie’s death and the governor’s statement? Instead of criticizing or condemning the killer or even calling for justice to be served…which Democrats nationwide rarely do…many instead chose to criticize Governor Reynolds online for what they perceived to be her “politicizing of a tragedy,” while also trying to paint her as a bigot. “You are now adding to the problem by using Mollie’s death for your agenda,” a user @quanthealing tweeted, while another Iowan tweeted that “This is not an immigration issue…this is a women’s safety issue.” And a man named Rezin Secrest wrote on the governor’s facebook page that, “there’s no reason to blame all Latinos for this.”

But the thing is that first, only those who are racists themselves play the race card every chance they get for in no way did the governor allude to the nationality of the killer in her statement (besides Latino is not a race) and second, Mollie Tibbetts’ murder was, is, and will remain an immigration issue for like Rachel Woods stated, also on the governor’s facebook page,“this crime was avoidable because the murderer should not have been here in the first place”…no truer words ever spoken.

And when you add in that Mollie’s murder being a woman’s issue is unequivocally not true, what pro-illegal Iowans don’t get is that when an American is murdered by someone here in our country illegally…no matter their country of origin…it is a general public safety issue not an issue specific to one sex.

“You saw what happened to that beautiful, incredible young woman. Should have never happened. Illegally in our country…the immigration laws are such a disgrace. We’re getting them changed.”
So said President Donald Trump at a rally in West Virginia last Tuesday night, where he referred to Mollie’s killing and the arrest of his rightfully stated “illegal alien” from Mexico.

And I agree with our president one hundred percent even while the Democrats are now using the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy to call attention to the legal rights of immigrants…both legal and especially illegal immigrants…under U.S. law. And while we know legal immigrants should and do have certain legal rights, what of those entering out country illegally thus breaking our laws…does the Constitution afford them certain rights as well?

According to Cristina Rodriguez, a professor at Yale Law School it does. Saying that, “Most of the provisions of the Constitution apply on the basis of personhood and jurisdiction in the United States,” Rodriguez claims that with the Constitution using the terms “people” or “person” instead of “citizen” that laws like “due process” do apply equally to everyone physically on U.S. soil, whether or not they are a citizen.

But there’s an inherent flaw in Rodriguez’s thinking as this battle is not about citizenship per se, but is about those illegally entering our country by breaking our laws thus being deemed criminals courtesy of their very act, and nowhere…I repeat nowhere…in the Constitution does it say we must treat criminals the same as those whom uphold and live by out laws.

And while lawyers on the left love to scream “due process” any and every time an illegal alien is caught and tagged for deportation, it must be remembered that “due process” itself is a double-edged sword of sorts, for while the Constitution via the Fifth Amendment states that, “no person…shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”…today even those words are open to judicial interpretation.

How so…just because one technically has the right to “due process”…especially those who are seeking “asylum”…does not mean those tagged for deportation without what they perceive to be a formal hearing aren’t receiving “due process.” Again how so? How about via the actual legal process known as “expedited removal.” Created by the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996,, the “expedited removal” process allows for immigrants who have been in this country illegally for less than two years and who are caught within 100 miles of the border to be deported almost immediately without going through a formal court hearing.

“Due Process”
in action courtesy of a law already on the books, but a law Democrats choose to ignore as they clamor to secure the illegal’s votes.

Also something even those on our side might not know is that while our Constitution states that under the law anyone facing a criminal charge has the right to counsel, the government is actually only required to provide counsel if the person is accused of a felony. And to date, crossing the border illegally is still a misdemeanor no matter that Trump’s rightful “zero-tolerance policy” requires most illegal border crossings to be tried as criminal cases. A ‘catch twenty-two’ if ever there was one.

So where do we stand now as to Mollie’s actual murder and where do we go regarding this entire illegal alien issue…illegal aliens not undocumented immigrants as the Democrats so love to call these criminals. To start with, Rivera’s lawyer, Allan Richards, filed yet another motion for a private hearing after an earlier defense motion for a gag order was rightfully rejected, leaving Richards to then argue that the case had already become too politicized…that his client could not get a fair trial. To that I personally say that since this monster basically admitted killing Molly Tibbetts…after all he did take the police to where he hid her body and admit he placed Molly in his trunk…his trial should be swift with adjudication carried out immediately with politicization be damned.

Now as for the issue of illegal immigration itself and the Democrats wanting to pad their voter rolls coupled with the fact that Mollie’s death is but another direct result of failed immigration policies that Congress still refuses to fix…not only won’t the whining Democrats allow our government to do its two most basic jobs…as in securing America’s borders and protecting our citizenry…but to be honest we also have to throw the Rinos into that mix. And while Congress refuses to allow immigration laws currently on the books to be wholly enforced while new laws are hashed out, voted on, and implemented; there’s now the issue of sanctuary cities and states that need addressing as well…and both are something that should never have been allowed in the first place.

And while we’re at it…since when did American cities become a haven for criminals…since when did I.C.E officials, whose job it is to secure our borders thus making America safe for Americans, become the enemy…since when did Americans become relegated to second place behind criminal illegal aliens…and since when did the number of Americans murdered by illegals start to rise in both number and brutality? I’ll tell you since when…since Barack HUSSEIN Obama became president and his fundamental change of America began…I cannot say it any more directly than that.

Now it’s up to President Trump to clean-up this Obama-initiated immigration mess, Dreamers included, but ‘We the People’ can help him do so by voting the Democrats out in November. But until that time President Trump must call for the “expedited removal” process to be the immigration rule of the day, and my fellow Republicans need to stop worrying about their public perception and start worrying about the reality that America is losing her American cultural identity…and sadly now doing so on the Republican watch.

Molly Tibitts had dreams, her family had dreams for her too, but those dreams were taken away from her by a young man who had no business being in our country in the first place…her blood forever also remains on the Democrats hands.

Rest in Peace dear Molly…you will not be forgotten.
