Bet you can't guess what detail the mainstream media keeps omitting in the Laken Riley case

A 22-year-old student was murdered on her University of Georgia campus by a 26-year-old illegal immigrant, and the mainstream media is showing its true colors.

The student, Laken Riley, was going for a morning jog when Jose Antonio Ibarra allegedly kidnapped and killed her.

However, in stories published on the tragedy from publications like the Associated Press, the reporters neglect to add in a very important detail: the alleged murderer is an illegal immigrant, and he already had a criminal history here in the United States.

According to ICE, Ibarra was caught crossing illegally into El Paso in September 2022 and was released into the United States via parole.

Nearly a year later, New York police arrested him for acting in a manner to injure a child less than age 17, and, yet again, he was released.

“I’m sure that it was just, you know, an oversight,” Sara Gonzales mocks, “just a little oopsy. Surely, they wrote a follow-up that highlighted the glaring omission that this man should not have even been in this country in the first place.”

“You have to imagine — surely, it’s incompetence rather than a deliberate act of deception,” she adds sarcastically.

The Associated Press did write a follow-up on the story in which it blamed toxic masculinity for her death rather than the allowance of a criminal into the United States.

The author then used the death of Mollie Tibbetts as another example of toxic masculinity but neglected to mention Tibbetts was also brutally murdered by an illegal immigrant.

“Both women were murdered by illegal immigrants, but that doesn’t fit the narrative. That’s not good for optics,” Gonzales says.
