Elizabeth Warren tells slain Mollie Tibbets’ family that we need to focus on ‘real problems’ like reuniting immigrant families, after the student was murdered by a man allegedly in the US illegally, by The Daily Mail

Some fine examples of liberal “compassion.” From The Daily Mail at dailymail.co.uk:

  • Massachusetts senator was asked if Tibbetts’ death meant tougher laws needed
  • Gave condolences to family but quickly shifted conversation to attack on Trump
  • Said USA needed to focus on ‘real problems’ like fallout from separation policy 
  • Donald Trump Junior accused the Democrat of not caring for ‘actual Americans’
  • Cristhian Rivera, 24, was arrested on Monday and charged with Tibbett’s murder
  • On Wednesday Rivera’s attorney claimed he was in the country LEGALLY

Elizabeth Warren was criticized on Wednesday for dodging a question about the murder of Mollie Tibbetts by shifting the conversation to the need to reunite immigrant families.

The Massachusetts senator was speaking on CNN at just after 8.20am (ET) when she was asked whether the Iowa student’s murder allegedly at the hands of an undocumented migrant meant tougher immigration laws were needed.

Warren began by offering condolences to Tibbetts’ family but then spoke of the need to focus on ‘real problems’ such as the fallout from the Trump administration’s policy of detaining migrant children away from their parents on the US-Mexico border.

‘I’m so sorry for the family and I know this is hard not only for her family but also for the local community and people throughout Iowa,’ the Democrat said on Wednesday, a day after Tibbetts’ body was found after a five week search.

‘But one of the things we have to remember is we need an immigration system that is effective and focuses on where real problems are.’

She then described her visit last month to the Mexican border to speak to children and mothers who had been separated. ‘I met with those mothers who had been lied to and didn’t know where their children were… and there was no plan about 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 mamas and babies are where we should be focusing our resources.’
