This is what the left has wrought in America today: The lawyers defending the murderous illegal alien who confessed to killing Mollie Tibbetts is now claiming that their client has a “constitutional right” to receive free money from U.S. taxpayers to help in his defense.
Maybe we can chip in or his execution, granted, but no illegal has any “constitutional right” to anything this country has to offer. Zero, zip, nada.
Breitbart News reports:
Illegal alien Cristhian Bahena-Rivera, a 24-year-old from Mexico, has been charged with first-degree murder in Tibbetts’ death after police say he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, as Breitbart News noted, and an initial autopsy report revealed that Bahena-Rivera allegedly stabbed Tibbetts to death.
Bahena-Rivera’s defense attorneys argued in court, as noted by KCRG, that the illegal alien has a “constitutional right to a full and complete defense and equal protection under the law” and therefore is entitled to the $5,000 in taxpayer funding to fight the murder charges.
The illegal alien was previously represented by Allan Richards but dropped him less than a month into the charges. Now, Bahena-Rivera has hired Chad Frese and Jennifer Frese, a married couple that practice law together.
According to police, 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. That is when he said he approached Tibbetts and started talking to her. After Tibbetts allegedly 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.
Unfortunately, the taxpayers of Iowa have already given this monster $5,000 for this killer.
According to Radar Online:
Radar obtained exclusive documents indicating the suspected murderer asked for an initial $5,000 to retain company Gratias Investigations, noting “this amount is probably considerably less than what will actually be necessary to conduct all investigation in this matter.”
Rivera’s lawyers said they wouldn’t disclose details as to why the suspected killer wants his own investigators, except behind closed doors at a hearing.
In a puzzling decision, a judge granted Rivera’s request for $5,000 for the team of investigators, though any additional amount needed would require further approval.
The documents also included a handwritten financial affidavit filled out by Rivera himself, revealing a shocking twist – he was born in 1997, not 1994 as he previously told authorities. Rivera’s handwritten statement listed his home address as “jail” and noted that he nor those who reside in his house of horrors have a job or income.
This is what liberals have created. They don’t mind if some Americans die, as long as all Americans are forced to hand over tax money to illegals — even ones who admit to murder, rape, drug dealing, and any other manner of crime.
