Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren distracts from Mollie Tibbetts murder, blames family separation

On Tuesday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) stated that the real issue in America wasn’t illegal immigrant crime but separation of illegal immigrants at the border.

“I know this is hard not only for the family but for the people in her community, the people throughout Iowa, but one of the things we have to remember is we need an immigration system that is effective, that focuses on where real problems are,” Warren said during the CNN interview.

Warren was speaking on the shocking murder of Mollie Tibbetts, killed by an illegal immigrant, Cristhian Bahena Rivera.

Check out the clip below.

“Last month, I went down to the border and I saw where children had been taken away from their mothers,” Warren said. “I met with those mothers who had been lied to, who didn’t know where their children were, who hadn’t had a chance to talk to their children and there was no plan for how they would be reunified with their children. I think we need immigration laws that focus on people who pose a real threat and I don’t think that mamas and babies are the place that we should be spending our resources. Separating a mama from her baby does not make this country safer.”

The Boston Herald was quick to point out that Warren may feel in her home state, which is particularly left, it may certainly alienate other voters.

“The state of Iowa has been following and thinking and worrying about Mollie Tibbetts for the past weeks, and that kind of comment is just outrageous,” said prominent Iowa fundraiser and GOP consultant Becky Beach, who gasped when she heard the Cambridge Democrat weigh in on Tibbetts.

“An innocent girl was murdered by an illegal immigrant, and Elizabeth Warren treats it like an inconvenience to her talking points,” wrote Republican National Party chairwoman Ronna McDaniels on Twitter.

President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. also weighed in.

“Yea the problem is not the murder of a young American girl…,” tweeted Trump Jr. “You cant make this crap up. Is the left’s platform really defend anyone but actual Americans? I don’t know how to interpret it any other way.”
