Loesch Blasts Warren: Dems 'Love to Conflate Lawful Immigration' With Illegals
'Astounded' by Warren's reaction to Tibbetts case.
Dana Loesch said she was "astounded" by Sen. Elizabeth Warren's remarks on illegal immigration following the murder of Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal immigrant.
Tibbetts, 20-year-old Iowa college student, was reported missing more than a month ago. Her body was found in an Iowa cornfield on Tuesday.
Cristhian Rivera, a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, has been charged with first-degree murder in her death.
On CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday, Warren (D-Mass.) said she was "so sorry for the family," but she went on to say, "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."
She pointed to the migrant family separation crisis, saying, "Separating a mama from a baby does not make this country safer."
On "Fox & Friends" on Thursday, Loesch pointed out that many American families have been torn apart by acts of violence committed by illegal immigrants.
"The Mickens family or the Cuevas family or the Steinle family or, now, even the Tibbetts family. I could go on because, you see, there are a lot of families who have had their children ripped from their arms because of inaction by certain people in power to enforce immigration laws," Loesch said.
She accused Democrats like Warren of attempting to conflate lawful immigration with people entering the United States illegally.
"It feels like they're conflating the issue and also that they give some sort of bizarre diplomatic immunity to people who enter the country illegally," Loesch said. "Why is it that can't they be held accountable for their crimes? And the first crime, once again, is entering the country illegally.”
