Yesterday, we received the sad news that Mollie Tibbetts’ body had been found almost a month after she simply vanished while going for a run. Her killer is an illegal alien who had lived in the area for four to seven years. A week ago, the FBI had issued a warning that the student’s attacker was hiding in plain sight and that they did not know who he is. Mollie was only 20-years-old and she was going to be married. Now we know who her killer is and that he was part of the small town of Brooklyn, Iowa where she lived. He allegedly knew his victim.
Cristhian Rivera has made a full confession to Mollie’s murder. He evidently came upon her as she was jogging and accosted her. He got out of his car and jogged with her or behind her. Finally, Mollie had had enough and told him she was going to call the police if he didn’t stop. Rivera claims he blacked out at that point and when he came to at an intersection, Mollie was in his trunk with the side of her head bloodied. He slung her over his should and took her out into the nearest cornfield where he left her face up and covered by cornhusks.
Rivera had worked on a local farm for four years and had passed an E-verify system check. But he was an illegal immigrant nonetheless. Rivera could face life in prison for first-degree murder or deportation. Mollie’s grieving family still has a lot of unanswered questions.
The police did not know Rivera’s identity until last Friday. Investigators traced him through his Chevy Malibu which was filmed following Mollie as she went on her evening jog on July 18. The footage came from security cameras at a private citizen’s home and the video caught Rivera in the act when he first approached Mollie.
About a week ago, police gathered the video evidence as they were conducting one of many canvass interviews to find Mollie. They spent days analyzing the footage before finally linking the vehicle to its owner. Rivera had no immediate connection to Mollie but his ex-girlfriend Iris Monarrez was friends with her on Facebook. He had seen Mollie jogging before. It sounds to me as if he might have been stalking the girl. Rivera’s girlfriend has not commented on his arrest.
“He certainly wasn’t known to the local police department. Through our interviews and conducting canvass interviews throughout the community, we weren’t aware of him until we were able to locate the vehicle. It’s not like he was on anybody’s radar. We weren’t aware of him throughout the investigation,” said Rick Rahn, who is a special agent from Iowa’s Division of Criminal Investigation.
Rivera, who is 24-years-old, is also a father. When police approached him Friday, he cooperated willingly and fully in an interview. That’s when he confessed to attacking Mollie. He then led police officers to her body in that field. After five long weeks, her parents finally have closure. It’s a tragic ending to a beautiful young life full of joy and promise.
Originally, a pig farmer had been a person of interest. He was questioned three times and his home was searched. But it turned out not to be him. Wayne Cheney, the farmer, allowed police to search his home and land and was subjected to a polygraph test. There were no other known suspects or people of interest. Mollie’s boyfriend was out of town when this happened and so was his brother, his brother’s fiancee and Mollie’s father Rob. From the beginning, Rob said he thought someone Mollie knew had taken her and begged for her safe return. He believed she was still alive.
It’s unknown exactly why Rivera came to the U.S. He comes from Guayabillo in the state of Guerrero in Mexico. Rivera was not on voter records but he did work for Yarrabee Farms. He passed the background check required to get a job there and had been living with other migrant workers in a farmhouse that is owned by the company they work for.
If it had not been for the camera that caught Rivera driving up to Mollie on July 18th, the police may never have caught this guy. “We are fortunate enough to be able to have that video. We spent a number of days and hours reviewing the video and subsequently were able to identify Rivera’s vehicle and we were able to locate him and ultimately conduct the interview with Mr. Rivera,” Rahn said.
As I understand it an autopsy should be conducted today to determine a cause of death. Mollie’s parents have not spoken of her death yet that I know of. I am sure they are devastated and need time to grieve.
Rivera is due in court this afternoon and is also the subject of an ICE detainer. Republicans are calling for much stricter immigration laws in the wake of this horrible event. Mollie will never get to be with her parents again this lifetime. She deserves justice here as so many other victims do. We need to uphold the rule of law and build the wall.
President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall
When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.
Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”
Do you think Facebook should be regulated so they're forced to treat everyone the same, regardless of their political beliefs, considering their size and influence in society?

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.
SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED
I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.
Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.
Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

The government didn’t spend or receive money from NAFTA. So unless you’re going to raise taxes, there is no money coming into the government from the new deal.

Good, now you can stop bothering Chuck and Nancy about getting our money for it.
— S.Danielle (@sdanielle) December 13, 2018
I am losing faith in you, sir. Why are you asking us taxpayers for 5 billion dollars if the new deal will pay for the wall? You promised that we wouldn’t have to pay for it! Please keep your promise, a free border wall, or I will not vote for you again. #NoWallNoVote pic.twitter.com/eDopbpl7T1

Also the deal still has to be ratified and approved by Congress which probably won't happen until the end of 2019 Or possibly mid 2020. So you're making promises using money you don't have and may possibly not get. What a shocker Mr. Bankruptcy
— Alan Volante (@VolanteAlan) December 13, 2018
Well wait until that money is coming in and build it then
— Caren Sykes (@misscsykes12) December 13, 2018
I've decided I'm not buying a Maga hat from you, but instead spend the money on drugs. So, now you pay for my drugs.
— Vincent Carmiggelt (@graphincent) December 13, 2018
Great so you don't need a penny from Congress or US Taxpayers then. Let us know when Mexico sends you the check for the $5 billion you want for the first payment on the wall. Until then don't bother Americans for the $.
— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) December 13, 2018
No, this means consumers will pay for the wall.
— Carolyn McClanahan (@CarolynMcC) December 13, 2018
If you buy something that normally costs $1000 on sale for $750, you didn't save $250. You spent $750.

Jeez… I saw that one coming.

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.
Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!
An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.
Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:
An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.
Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.
“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.
Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.
“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”
“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.
“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”
Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.
Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
