The calls growing louder for Democrats and Republicans to get something done on immigration reform in the wake of the arrest of an undocumented immigrant in the murder of 20-year-old University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts. Even President Trump took to Twitter to urge Republicans to put more work into getting immigration laws passed, especially with some Democrats wanting to abolish altogether the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
During a recent show, Todd Starnes explained why Mollie Tibbetts' has now become a campaign issue for the midterm elections.
"The Democrats are accusing the Republicans of making this a campaign issue. Let me be clear about this, the only reason it's a campaign issue is because the Democrats and the establishment Republicans will not secure the border. If we had a secure border, there would not be illegal aliens running around killing American citizens. That's a cold hard reality," Starnes said.
