The death of Iowa college student, Mollie Tibbetts, has been used by people in the White House to further their agenda on Immigration.

Tibbetts was a 20-year-old University of Iowa student who went missing over a month ago. Her body was discovered Tuesday, and shortly after a suspect was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. The suspect was identified as 24-year-old Cristhian Rivera, an undocumented immigrant, reports CNN.

Since his identification, Rivera has been the subject of many conversations, making Tibbetts the secondary focus in her own death. In Wednesday’s White House press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders brought up Tibbetts but used the opportunity to stress the importance of changing immigration policy.

Black GOP commentator Candace Owens mentioned Tibbetts in a tweet as a political talking point.

Sam Lucas, who is related to Tibbetts through great-grandparents, told the Washington Post that she was so outraged by the tweet from Owens, she was moved to respond to her.

Lucas was not the only family member of Tibbetts to speak out against the politicization of her death. Billie Joe Calderwood, Tibbetts’s aunt, wrote a reminder to everyone on Facebook that “evil comes in every color.”

So far, it does not appear that Owens has responded to Lucas’s tweet.

Lucas told the Post that she doesn’t think her cousin should be part of any discussion related to immigration in the United States.

“People are saying, ‘If we had better border control, your cousin would never be dead,’ ” she said. “That may be true but also, a lot of young American women get killed by legal immigrants or people who were born here.”

    I bet Candace hates being black, I bet she dates white men only as many of these so called black conservatives seem to do. They live to parade her kind around to sprew their agenda and make it seem like they have a huge black following. They fail to realize blacks are not easily fooled.

      She is truly a sick black woman. Listening to her defend trump and his policies lying about his 36% black support when he doesn’t give damn about her. She looks like a complete jackass at the expense of the white man. Even as his ship is sinking, she is still on the front line tap dancing for him that shows you what kind of fool she is.

        You say things I like to read. 🙂
        Not into politics learned a long time ago that it’s nothing but peckerwood bull*hit. You would think by now brown skin folks would know that but, we keep marching and protesting. That was a brutal time when Mr.King and all the others before us ending with small results for brown skins but, it just never went any further because we’re still trying to fight, getting murdered, high unemployment, bad education opportunities and peckerwoods just don’t give a dam about brown skin people and never will. I will not VOTE for anymore peckerwoods. Maxine Waters 2020

    Mollie Tibbits was killed by an illegal immigrant. There will be ZERO outrage from Democrats and the spineless celebrities who march to their orders because they need open borders for votes

    The only spineless coward is you Candace, I mean Coondace. An educated, articulate black jigga boo being used by the right, racist ass RepubliKKKans who play on your black self-hatred, and inferiority complex. Using you to hurt brown people while you make a complete ass out of yourself licking the boots of the trump administration. Do you demonize all white cops who kill unarmed black citizens? You’re defending trump’s policies a racist who called a black woman who look like you a dog. trump doesn’t give 2 fucs about your black ass! None of these white men do….GTFOH!!!

      I saw her debating someone about two week ago. The host actually had to put her in check b/c she thought the louder she yelled, the more it would make her right. She’s in the swamp with the rest of those creatures. Including Paris Dennard, who as a matter of fact, was just fired from CNN for some perverted sh*t that happened in 2014. He has the audacity to say, “this is a public lynching”. Okay negro…keep it moving.

        @Phoenix,
        **
        She’s a total embarrassment I cringe just to listen to her go to bat for these racist who don’t give 2 s**ts about her. I caught part of that interview on CNN that you’re talking about. She kept talking over everyone on the panel trying to defend tumps’s policies by deflecting talking about the violence in Chicago. She’s a well-groomed conservative sambo, programed with all of the racist talking points they feed their black pets, NO facts just talking points. Lying about the economy, lying about immigration. When she can’t answer a question about racism do like Ben Carson and talk about black negativity. trump wouldn’t do her the honor of pissing in her black face. He has yet to acknowledge her existence. When the trump tanic sinks let’s see if these white racist throw her a lifesaver.

        @PT, I think they’re all so embarrassed about voting and supporting that orange buffoon, that they got nothing else left but to keep up with the charade. Hence, all their lying. I just can’t get past them still supporting 45 and all his dirty rats, even when, as you said, he has no issues calling black women dogs and football players that kneel, SOBs. Self hate is a mother for those lacking in common sense.

      • And yet Joy Reid remains employed at MSNBC for her racist bigoted rants from years ago

    • more Mis-Lead-NBC talking points just like a plantation neggr@ if you bothered to think for your self you would find the Trump has called white men and white women DOGS AFA Trump not caring about blacks Alice Marie Johnson would call BS to your face

  3. I don’t think much else has to be said – – family members have said it all. How despicable for the White House to use Mollie’s death to promote their racist, bigoted propaganda. The sooner people realize that evil does not care about your neighborhood, your socio-economic background, the level of your education or number of degrees; your gender or ethnicity the better off as humans we will be.


  4. Feb 14th FL HS shooting CNN, MSNBC couldn’t wait to parade David Hogg and that Bald Chick out to denounce and politicize gun owners and the NRA so we were correct
    In “dragging” them on social media
