Souther Border Crisis

Biden Could Face Criminal Charges Over Laken Riley’s Murder By Illegal Alien



Sen. Lindsey Graham has suggested that President Joe Biden could be subject to criminal charges over the murder of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley by an illegal alien.

Riley, a 22-year-old nursing student at the University of Georgia, was brutally killed while out running by Jose Antonio Ibarra, a 26-year-old illegal alien from Venezuela. Ibarra had been allowed into the country by the Biden administration.

In an interview with Fox News, Graham indicated that Biden could face criminal prosecution if the Supreme Court does not rule there is presidential immunity.

“The border is beyond broken. You have wars in Ukraine. You have the Mideast on fire. When it comes to enforcing the law, Joe Biden has been beyond reckless. He’s taken a parole statute that’s limited in nature and has given a million people parole when, on average, the Trump and [Obama] administrations gave 5,600 people parole. Laken Riley’s murderer was paroled because they had lack of capacity in El Paso,” Graham explained.

He added, “All these women who have been raped and murdered have one thing in common: the people that killed them, raped them, and murdered them were in our custody and let go, I think illegally. So Joe Biden better hope and pray there’s presidential immunity because when he allowed the killer of Laken Riley to be released on parole because of lack of capacity, I think he’s subject not only to a lawsuit but criminal prosecution if there’s not presidential immunity.”

Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said President Biden should “pray” for presidential immunity over his border policies that Graham said have opened the doors to violent illegal immigrants to carry out rapes and murders against Americans.

“Joe Biden better hope and pray there’s presidential immunity, because when he allowed the killer of Laken Riley to be released on parole because of lack of capacity, I think he’s subject not only to lawsuit, but criminal prosecution – if there’s not presidential immunity,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Graham’s comment came amid discussion about the Democratic Party’s increased criticism of the Supreme Court, including Biden saying earlier this month that the “Supreme Court has never been as out of kilter as it is today,” and the Senate possibly enforcing an ethics code on SCOTUS.

The Republican senator argued that Democrats are attacking the high court to protect Biden’s record in office, including immigration policies that have led to more than 7 million illegal immigrants crossing the border.

Graham cited the murder of Laken Riley, a 22-year-old nursing student who was discovered beaten to death in February after going for a run on the University of Georgia campus. The Augusta University student crossed paths with illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Ibarra, according to authorities, and died from blunt force trauma to the head.

During his State of the Union address earlier this year, Biden acknowledged that Riley had been murdered by an “illegal” but refused to take responsibility for her death.

However, following backlash from open border activists, Biden apologized for his remarks, insisting that he should have used the term “undocumented” instead. “I’m not gonna treat any of these people with disrespect,” Biden said of illegal aliens. “They built this country.”

The tragic case of Laken Riley has intensified the debate over immigration policy and the responsibilities of the federal government in ensuring public safety. Critics argue that the current administration’s policies have made the country less safe, while supporters contend that compassionate immigration practices are necessary and humane.

The legal implications for President Biden remain uncertain, but the conversation surrounding presidential accountability and immigration policy continues to be a significant and contentious issue.
