First, my condolences to her family.
It is terrible of Trump to politicize this terrible crime. Of course, Republicans don’t want to talk about gun safety after mass shootings but it’s alright to talk about immigration after this tragedy.

Mollie Tibbetts was murdered because she told a man to leave her alone while she was jogging. But because he was an illegal immigrant you all wanna advocate for border control instead of against the root of the problem: violence towards women for saying no

https://t.co/Q5GyJAmXPF Mollie Tibbetts murder isn’t about immigration, it’s about toxic masculinity. Facts are facts: Immigrants don’t commit more violent crime. But men sure do.

Russian bot-and-troll networks continue to exploit race-related issues to distract from bad news for Trump, posting thousands of tweets about the death of Mollie Tibbets to draw attention away from Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort. https://t.co/YkILF3Wn42

The killer of Mollie Tibbetts killed one person, so Congress must immediately act on border wall.
Stephen Paddock killed 58 and wounded 851 in Las Vegas, but Congress must not act on guns.

NEW by Sandi Tibbetts Murphy on those politicizing Mollie Tibbetts' death:
"[If] did not know her, you do not get to usurp Mollie & her legacy for your racist, false narrative. We hereby reclaim our Mollie."

When Trump refers to a young woman apparently murdered by an undocumented immigrant as “permanently separated from her family,” he is using her and her loved ones as pawns in his war on immigration — and mocking the parents and children he has heartlessly separated at the border.

This is a beautifully told story about where our country was, not long ago, and where it is now. A crime, a closed window for mourning, and a town changed by a bitter national debate. Great from @kemettler https://t.co/9JDEL5ubDU
