OK! I’m slightly less pissed than I was yesterday.
Let’s talk #MollieTibbetts shall we?
I live in Iowa. It’s wonderful. The people here are genuinely friendly. “Iowa Nice” is a real thing.
You know the story by now of Mollie Tibbetts.
I work in a job that I visit several gas stations and grocery stores every day. For the past 2-3 weeks they all have one thing in common. At the entrance to EVERYWHERE is a missing persons poster for Mollie Tibbetts.
You can’t escape the story. Radio, TV, internet, in person. Molly’s picture has been in my face for weeks. She literally became the “girl next door” even though Brooklyn is 2.5 hours from me.
The entire state of Iowa hoped she was ok, and that she’d be rescued. As the days and weeks of no new news went on my wife and I, like others, thought some sick bastard raped and killed her. The picture in my (everyone’s?)mind was some weird old guy in a windowless van got her.
Then I hear the news on @WHORadio that Mollie was found dead. Murdered by an illegal immigrant. My jaw dropped. Hard. My blood boiled. That thought never crossed my mind.
The unknown, stranger girl who became all of Iowa’s “girl next door” was murdered by an illegal alien?!?
I listened to @WHORadio for 90 minutes on a long drive home. Mollie isn’t the only one. Multiple people called in and shared their stories of how their relatives were lost to illegal immigrants. The deaths, the stories, the memes are real, and I’ve never considered it before.
We need a change.
We don’t really need new laws. Enforce the damned laws we have already. Enter the country illegally? Fuck you. You’re deported.
Hire an illegal? Get a fine for each one.
Maybe we need some new laws? Is it illegal for a bank to loan money to a an illegal immigrant? Can they get food stamps? If so, end it.
Legal immigration is a great thing that helped make us the best nation in the history of humanity. Let’s keep that going. You want to join us? Hell yeah! Come on over.
Not so fast...do it legally. We need to know who you are. We need to know that you aren’t a danger.
If you’re a person of decent character come on over. Follow the damned rules though.
Enough, ENOUGH of the assholes of all races who think they can come to our country illegally without repercussions.
You want a wall? Ok. It’s a symbol, and doesn’t do much, but build the fucking wall. Do it.
Until you enforce EXISTING immigration laws there will be many more Mollie Tibbetts cases. Let’s hope it isn’t your neighbor or loved one.
