Accused Illegal Alien Killer of Mollie Tibbetts Demands Not to be Called ‘Illegal’ During Trial

Published

on

Attorneys for the accused illegal alien killer of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts filed a motion for a gag order Wednesday that would prevent government prosecutors from calling him anything but a “documented resident.”

According to the order, Cristhian Bahena-Rivera’s attorneys argue that he is indeed in the United States legally, that he was brought here as a minor, and that he has complied with his “documented status” since his arrival.

But the United States Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) disagrees. They have no records whatsoever on Bahena-Rivera, and certainly none that would suggest that he was here legally.

In other words, his attorneys are lying.

“A search of records by USCIS revealed Rivera did not make any DACA requests nor were any grants given,” USCIS spokesman Michael Bars told Breitbart in a statement. “We have found no record in our systems indicating he has any lawful immigration status.”

Bahena-Rivera’s attorneys fear that government prosecutors calling him an “illegal alien” or “illegal” might be unfairly prejudicial, though it is the truth regarding his status in America. The attorneys also bemoaned President Donald J. Trump weighing in on the situation on Twitter, saying that it “will poison the entire possible pool of jury members.”

Big League Politics reported:

A 24-year-old illegal alien has been charged with first degree murder in the death of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts.

“Christhian Bahena Rivera, 24, who resides in rural Poweshiek County, was charged with first-degree murder,” according to the Des Moines Register. 

Rivera, who is believed to have been in the area for four to seven years, allegedly abducted Tibbetts while she was jogging on July 18. Though the body has not been positively identified, it is believed to be Tibbetts.

“Rivera led investigators to Tibbetts’ body,” the paper said. “He told officials he had followed her and allegedly also ran alongside or behind her. Investigators were able to identify him after officals [sic] identified his vehicle in the same area Tibbetts was last seen running, according to surveillance footage.”

Bahena-Rivera, originally from Mexico, has been charged with first-degree murder in Tibbetts’ death.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice

Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.

Published

on

As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.

Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.

DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.

DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.

Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”

The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
