Default Mollie Tibbetts murder sparks lawmakers' demands for 'justice,' comparison to Kate Steinle case

The arrest of a 24-year-old illegal immigrant in the murder of
University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts sparked both mournful
— and fiery — responses from politicians on Tuesday, as they
pleaded with Congress to do more to protect U.S. citizens.

Investigators identified Tibbetts' suspected killer as Cristhian
Bahena Rivera, an illegal immigrant from Mexico who is believed
to have been living in the area around Brooklyn, Iowa, for four
to seven years.

Speaking at a rally in West Virginia, the president says the
death of the Iowa student by an illegal immigrant suspect should
never have happened.
President Trump, while in West Virginia speaking at a rally,
said Tibbetts' murder "should have never happened."

"You heard about today with the illegal alien coming in, very
sadly, from Mexico and you saw what happened to that incredible,
beautiful young woman?" Trump asked. "Should have never
happened. Illegally in our country."

Vice President Mike Pence said he was "heartbroken" by the news
of Tibbetts' brutal slaying and offered prayers for the young
woman's family and close friends "in this time of unimaginable
grief." Pence called for "justice" after police announced
Rivera's arrest.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said she expressed condolences to
Tibbetts' family earlier Tuesday, declaring "justice had just

Over the past month, thousands of Iowans searched and prayed for
Mollie’s safe return. Now, we are called to come together once
again to lift up a grieving family. The search for Mollie is
over, but the demand for justice has just begun.

As Iowans, we are heartbroken, and we are angry. We are angry
that a broken immigration system allowed a predator like this to
live in our community, and we will do all we can bring justice
to Mollie’s killer.

This is truly heartbreaking. For Mollie’s parents, her family

parent and grandparent, your worst nightmare is losing your
child.

John Cox, a GOP candidate in California's race for governor,
released a statement comparing Tibbetts' murder to the
"heartbreaking death" of Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed
on a San Francisco pier in 2015. Investigators said the suspect,
Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, was in the U.S. illegally. A jury
acquitted him of murder, manslaughter and assault last year but
convicted him of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Illegal immigrant acquitted in the Kate Steinle death has
accused the government of 'vindictive' prosecution. Jose Garcia
Zarate's attorney Maria Belyi joins 'The Story' for an exclusive
interview.
"As a father of four daughters, it crushes my heart to see yet
another family go through this nightmare," Cox said. "Those who
want to abolish ICE need to consider the consequences of their
rash proposal."

He continued, "The Mollie Tibbetts case is one more tragic
example of a senseless loss that never should have happened,
similar to Kate Steinle’s heartbreaking death in San Francisco."

Texas Governor Greg Abbott pivoted to turn Tibbetts' death into
a poltical discussion, partially placing blame on sanctuary
cities, though Iowa — where the 20-year-old's body was found in
a field covered with corn stalks — doesn't have any designated
sanctuary cities.

An undocumented immigrant is charged for murder of Mollie
Tibbetts, the Iowa college student who went missing on July 18.
This is why so many Americans are angry about sanctuary cities.
It’s why Texas banned sanctuary cities. It’s about safety. #tcot

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., also called on members
of Congress, specifically Democrats, to help push forward
stricter immigration legistlation.

What will it take for Democrats to renounce their dangerous
open borders policies and start to put American citizens first?
It’s time they stop blocking common sense bills to restore the
rule of law in this country before we see another senseless
tragedy like this.

"What will it take for Democrats to renounce their dangerous

Scalise asked. "It’s time they stop blocking common sense bills

senseless tragedy like this."

Kate Steinle and now Mollie Tibbetts appear to have both been
killed by illegal immigrants and are the victims of failure to
enforce illegal immigration laws. #Tucker
In a nod to recent comments from fellow Republicans, Arizona
Rep. Paul Gosar called on Congress to help secure the border.

"Securing our border is about protecting our communities,
families and children from dangerous criminal activity and
violence that threatens their safety. #SecureOurBorder," Gosar
wrote, in part.

Iowa Rep. Steve King also asked for justice to be served.
