A father whose daughter would be alive today if not for an illegal alien brutally taking her young life wrote an opinion piece condemning those calling for border security in the wake of her death “racist.”
“I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome,” said Rob Tibbetts in The Des Moines Register. “But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist.”
Mollie Tibbetts was found dead after disappearing while jogging on July 18. Police say that 24-year-old illegal Cristhian Bahena-Rivera confessed to the crime and led them to where he dumped Tibbetts’ body.
But now, if you might be alarmed at the violent crimes committed by illegals – or at least by this particular illegal – Rob Tibbetts thinks you’re a bigot. Apparently he “encourages” a “debate” on the subject, as long as you’re on the side that advocates for open borders.
“The person who is accused of taking Mollie’s life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people,” he wrote idiotically. “To suggest otherwise is a lie.”
No one is suggesting that all Hispanic people are criminals. That would be foolish, and that has never been the argument.
The argument is that people who reside in our country illegally cannot kill our citizens if they are not allowed here in the first place. One hundred percent of crimes committed by illegals are preventable. Thereby, one crime committed by an illegal – whether it is jaywalking or homicide – ought to be intolerable.
But no matter how horrific or savage the crime committed by an illegal alien, there will always be a leftist like Rob Tibbetts to conflate border security with racism.
“To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology,” Tibbetts said. “That you’ve been beset by the circumstances of Mollie’s death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love your food.”
Perhaps we should set the record straight once and for all.
Those of us on the sane side of this argument who would prefer that people residing in America reside here legally, respecting the laws that we have established, do not care about the creed or skin color of the illegal. If someone is here illegally, he or she must leave. All are welcome to come back, but legally.
After all, the rule of law is part of the “American tapestry” too.

SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed
A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.
The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.
14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.
It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.
The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.
Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:
Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.
Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
