An illegal immigrant, Christian Bajina Rivera, has been arrested and charged with the murder of missing University of Iowa student, Mollie Tibbits. The missing 20-year-old student, who was last seen on the evening of July 18 and was reported missing on the morning of July 19, was found dead on Tuesday, August 21. The case has drawn nationwide attention and has been reported on all mainstream cable news outlets.
Christian Banja Rivera has been formally charged with the First Degree Murder of Mollie Tibbits. Authorities have confirmed with the Department of Homeland Security that Rivera is in the United States illegally and is currently being held on an immigration detainer.
Investigators initially engaged Rivera on August 20. Police stated that Rivera was cooperative and willing to discuss the events that allegedly took place, details what transpired have yet to be revealed. According to authorities, surveillance video recovered from Brooklyn, Iowa residents assisted them in identifying Rivera. The same surveillance video also appeared to show Mollie Tibbits running prior to her disappearance.
Mollie Tibbits was last seen on the evening of July 18, as she went for a jog in her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa. Tibbits was dog sitting at her boyfriend’s house while he and his family were out of town. Tibbits sent her mother a text message and her boyfriend a Snapchat message the night of July 18 however, she was never heard from thereafter. When Tibbits didn’t show up for work on the morning of July 19, she was reported missing. Her disappearance launched a massive manhunt, which included local authorities from the Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office, the Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation, and the FBI.
These new revelations alleging that an illegal immigrant is responsible for the murder of yet another American citizen will surely thrust illegal immigration back into the national spotlight. This time, the victim is 20-year-old aspiring psychologist, Mollie Tibbits. How many more Americans need to be victimized before the Democratic Party and the political left take illegal immigration seriously?
