Rep. Mark Green Blasts Mayorkas For ‘Stonewalling’ Details On Laken Riley’s Alleged Killer: Report | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Spencer Lindquist.

    Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) reportedly blasted Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for "stonewalling" details about the illegal immigrant accused of murdering Laken Riley, a 22-year-old Georgia college student.

    Green, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, wrote to Mayorkas in a February 27 letter requesting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) communications regarding the immigration proceedings of Jose Antonio Ibarra, the Venezuelan national accused of killing Riley.

    Green told Breitbart News that DHS confirmed receipt of the letter and claimed it was a "high priority," but the federal agency has now fallen silent.

    "It's unacceptable that DHS has failed to comply with this reasonable request," Green told Breitbart. "The documents and information that we have requested should be quite simple for DHS to compile and produce."

    "Secretary Mayorkas has repeatedly claimed that parole is being granted on a case-by-case basis, per the law's requirement, and if that's true, DHS shouldn't have any trouble producing the documents verifying that in the matter of Jose Ibarra," Green continued. "This is the type of stonewalling we've encountered over and over again from the administration. It's time for DHS to be forthcoming."

    Riley went for a jog on February 22 on the University of Georgia campus, with police beginning a search for her after she did not return home. Her body was found later that day in a wooded area after sustaining severe injuries to her skull. Ibarra, 26, was arrested and charged the following day in connection to the murder.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) acknowledged that Ibarra had been apprehended at the border in September 2022 before being "paroled and released for further processing." Ibarra was also reportedly arrested in New York City in August 2023 and was charged with acting in a manner to injure a child less than 17 and a motor vehicle license violation.


    President Joe Biden has been largely silent on the killing, only addressing it after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) shouted Riley's name last week during his State of the Union address. Biden then botched Riley's name and said she was killed by "an illegal." Biden later said he regretted his word choice, adding that illegal immigrants "built this country."

    The killing of Riley comes as the United States grapples with an unprecedented surge of illegal migrants at the southern border, with officials recording about 9 million nationwide encounters and 1.7 million estimated gotaways since Biden took office.

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.
