Brian Kemp blasts Biden’s immigration policies after illegal alien’s reported murder of Laken Hope Riley, demands answers

News & Politics

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp blasted President Joe Biden over his immigration policies in the aftermath of the murder of a 22-year-old nursing student who was believed to have been brutally killed by an illegal alien.

As Blaze News reported, Augusta University nursing student Laken Hope Riley was viciously murdered while she was jogging. The body of Riley was discovered in a wooded area on the University of Georgia campus on Thursday.

University of Georgia Police Chief Jeffrey Clark said Riley died of blunt force trauma.

On Friday, police arrested 26-year-old Jose Antonio Ibarra.

Ibarra was charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, kidnapping, hindering a 911 call, and concealing the death of another.

Clark described the murder as a “crime of opportunity.”

Ibarra reportedly lived at an apartment building located on the edge of the park where Riley was jogging.

Clarke noted that Ibarra is not a U.S. citizen and did not attend the university.

Ibarra is an illegal immigrant from Venezuela who crossed illegally into El Paso, Texas, in September 2022 and was released into the U.S. via parole, sources within the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Department of Homeland Security told Fox News.

On Saturday, Kemp fired off a letter to Biden demanding answers regarding the porous U.S. southern border and the overwhelming illegal immigration crisis.

“As I have stated many times in the past, your actions and those of your administration have resulted in every state in the country experiencing the disastrous impacts of an unsecured U.S. southern border,” Kemp began his letter to Biden. “More than nine million illegal immigrants have crossed the border since you took office – with an additional, unknown number of migrants who were not detained and processed – while at least 58 people on the terror watchlist have been encountered between ports of entry this fiscal year alone.”

“While the dangers of this crisis have never been theoretical, this week our state witnessed a devastating tragedy,” Kemp said, referring to the brutal murder of Riley.

Kemp also said, “Laken Riley’s tragic death struck the hearts of Georgians everywhere and has rightfully sparked national outrage. As I have said many times before: every state is now a border state because of Joe Biden’s inaction, and today I am again demanding answers and information from the Biden Administration that will help us protect our citizens when the federal government will not.”

Kemp pointed out that Ibarra’s brother, Diego Ibarra, was arrested for presenting law enforcement with a fake green card when questioned about his murder suspect sibling. Diego Ibarra was arrested and charged with possessing a fraudulent U.S. permanent resident card.

The Republican governor of Georgia noted that Diego Ibarra was arrested multiple times. According to NewsNation, he was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, driving without a license, and for “failure to appear for a fingerprintable offense.”

Kemp demanded that the Biden administration provide governors with the resources to be made aware of illegal aliens living in states while asylum claims are being processed.

“Frankly, Mr. President, your continued silence in response to these reasonable requests is outrageous,” Kemp declared. “The American people deserve to know who is illegally entering our country due to your administration’s failures, and what risks and challenges every state must now face.”

Kemp asked Biden, “Why was my administration not made aware of the asylum claims and subsequent release of an illegal resident who presented fraudulent identification? What is the current immigration status of Jose Antonio Ibarra and why has this information not been relayed to my administration? What additional information does your administration possess regarding these individuals and the circumstances surrounding their entry into the country?”

“These tragedies are not unique to Georgia. While we will continue to support Texas with National Guard resources as we have since 2019, federal action to secure the border is the only way to wholistically address this ongoing crisis and ensure Laken Riley’s horrible fate is not replicated across the country. However, if you continue to refuse to exercise your authority as president, your administration must provide the information necessary for Georgia and other states to protect our citizens,” Kemp concluded.

Georgia Rep. Mike Collins (R-Athens) took Biden to task and even accused the president of having Riley’s blood on his hands.

“The blood of Laken Riley is on the hands of Joe Biden, Alejandro Mayorkas, and the government of Athens-Clarke County,” Collins proclaimed. “The Venezuelan suspect in Laken Riley’s murder is one of millions of illegal aliens that the Biden administration has released into this country to be welcomed with open arms by Democrat-run sanctuary jurisdictions. This man had no business being in America, much less the UGA community to brutally murder this young American while she was on a run.”
