Mollie Tibbetts's Father Fired Back at Conservatives' Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric During His Daughter's Eulogy
The death of Mollie Tibbetts has become a political talking point for conservatives since her body was discovered last week. The suspect, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, is a Mexican national who authorities say was in the country illegally; as a result, many Republicans, including President Donald Trump himself, have used the murder to make the case for harsher immigration legislation. But the father of the victim is not having it.
Speaking at his daughter's funeral service, Rob Tibbetts rejected the vitriol directed at the Hispanic community since Rivera was arrested for the murder.
