The illegal alien charged with murdering 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts is now requesting that jury selection for the September trial be moved to a county in Iowa with a Hispanic majority population.
In August 2018, Bahena-Rivera, an illegal alien from Mexico, was charged with Tibbetts’murder after police said he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman after her body was found in a cornfield in Poweshiek County, Iowa. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, as Breitbart News noted, and worked on a dairy farm using a stolen ID and Social Security card after allegedly crossing the U.S.-Mexico border as a child.
In a motion filed by Bahena-Rivera’s attorneys and obtained by the Des Moines Register, the illegal alien requests that the jury selection be moved out of Poweshiek County — where the alleged murder took place — to a county in Iowa with a larger Hispanic population.
Set aside for the moment the fact that there is even any county with a sizable Hispanic population…in Iowa. But if diversity is our strength and it works so well and these people have assimilated, surely it should not matter whether you are in a majority white or majority Hispanic county, right? Aren’t we all Americans? Except for Bahena-Rivera himself, of course, who is an illegal. Oh wait, I’m not supposed to call him that:
The request to move jury selection to a minority-majority county is just the latest plea that Bahena-Rivera has made to the court. As Breitbart News reported, the illegal alien had initially requested that he not be called an “illegal alien” and his attorneys have said that he has a “constitutional right” to receive $5,000 in state taxpayer money to hire an independent investigative team for his defense.
According to prosecutors, Bahena-Rivera was the last person who saw Tibbetts jogging on the evening of July 18 in Brooklyn, Iowa, security camera footage reveals. That is the night Tibbetts went missing.
The illegal alien told police that Tibbetts was jogging when he saw her, according to prosecutors. That is when he said he approached Tibbetts and started talking to her. After Tibbetts told Bahena-Rivera that she would call the police if he did not stop following her, the illegal alien allegedly chased her and says he “blacked out” after this.
Police believe Bahena-Rivera stabbed Tibbetts to death, then drove to a cornfield where prosecutors say Bahena-Rivera placed corn stalks over her to hide her body. The illegal alien has been held on a $5 million bond and the murder trial is set for September.
Case closed guys. He blacked out after he was told to leave her alone. Much like the gun that accidentally went off in a pile of blankets in the Kate Steinle case, this guy is totally being persecuted!
Sigh. Choose where you live wisely. They will continue to tell you that we can all live together in harmony, but it has not been happening in this country. When push comes to shove, and one’s back is up against the wall, they will always turn to their own. It is natural. Most foreigners will first identify with the nation of their racial roots, not America. Expect to see more of these jury issues running along racial lines. Again, you do not have these kinds of problems anywhere close to the same numbers in a country with a large racial majority of one group of people.
