The mother of a man killed by an illegal immigrant ripped Sen. Elizabeth Warren for calling for a solution to "real problems" with the American immigration system.

The Massachusetts Democrat made the remark on CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday in the wake of the Mollie Tibbetts tragedy.

Cristhian Rivera, a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of the 20-year-old Iowa college student, who was reported missing more than a month ago. Tibbetts body was found in an Iowa cornfield on Tuesday.

"I'm so sorry for the family here," Warren said, adding that "one of the things we have to remember is that we need an immigration system that is effective, that focuses on where real problems are."

On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Mary Ann Mendoza, whose police officer son Brandon was killed by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant, said she is "disgusted by Elizabeth Warren."

"Stop lying to the American people, because you don't care what is happening," Mendoza said.

Mendoza said the issue is indeed "political" because people like Warren are "stepping over American bodies in their rush to protect illegal immigrant criminals."

Tucker Carlson said other Democrats have defended illegal immigrants in the past.

He played tape of Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) calling the Trump administration's border policy that led to the separation of family members "inhumane and cruel."

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) also called that policy "complete[ly] opposite of the values of this nation."
