Mayorkas makes a disturbing comment when confronted about Laken Riley

Laken Riley’s murder was a tragic one that could have easily been avoided. And Biden is responsible for her death.

But now, Mayorkas has made a disturbing claim regarding Laken Riley’s death.

Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of Homeland Security, discussed the murder of 22-year-old Georgia nursing student Laken Riley in an interview with CBS News on Sunday.

However, he did not acknowledge that Laken Riley’s suspected killer, Jose Antonio Ibarra, an illegal immigrant, should not have been permitted entry into the country in the first place.

Many on the right reacted negatively to his remarks, among them Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson, who noted that Riley “would still be alive today” if the federal government had carried out its duties as intended.

In a post on X, Johnson wrote, “When asked about the tragic murder of Laken Riley by an illegal immigrant, Secretary Mayorkas visibly checked his talking points on how to deflect blame.”

“Her killer should NOT have been allowed to enter the country and if the Administration had stopped him and turned him around as they should have, Laken Riley would be alive today,” Johnson added.

During the interview on Face the Nation, host Margaret Brennan confronted Mayorkas about “migrant crime” in general, but focused specifically on Riley’s case.

“[Ibarra] had been detained by Border Patrol upon crossing, released with temporary permission to stay in the country,” Brenna said.

She then emphasized that he “then went on allegedly to commit crimes twice, once in New York for driving a scooter without a license, and once in connection with a shoplifting case in Georgia.”

She asked Mayrokas directly: “Did those states and their law enforcement communicate to the federal government that this had happened? Should this man have been deported?”

Mayorkas refused to admit that the murderer should have been deported and instead called the events a “tragedy.”

“One individual is responsible for the murder,” Mayorkas said, “and that is the murderer.”

The Secretary of Homeland Security then refused to acknowledge that Ibarra’s illegal entry and continued presence in the nation after he had committed the aforementioned crimes were, at the very least, partially the fault of the federal government.

Rather, he stated that sanctuary states and cities should take responsibility for their failure to alert immigration authorities to the threat that Ibarra represented to the neighborhood.

Ibarra was taken into custody soon after the body of the nursing student from Augusta University was found close to a lake on February 22.

In addition to a misdemeanor charge of physically impeding a 911 call, he is accused of felonies including malice murder, murder, abduction, false imprisonment, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and concealing the death of another.

This is simply the newest in a long line of violent crimes committed by illegal aliens that Joe Biden and Mayorkas have allowed into our country.

How long will this continue?

We cannot allow the Left to keep destroying this great nation.
