SPOKESMAN SPEAKS: No Word from Joe on Laken Riley Murder, White House Issues Statement [READ IT]

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.26.24

President Biden has yet to comment on the murder of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley — but the White House has finally issued a statement via a spokesperson.

“We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Laken Hope Riley,” a White House spokesperson told Fox News Digital. “People should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law if they are found to be guilty. Given this is an active case, we would have to refer you to state law enforcement and ICE.”

Riley was killed by a Venezuelan migrant in the country illegally who was previously caught and released at the border and in New York City.

Former President Donald Trump unloaded on the Biden Administration for allowing such a preventable crime.

“Crooked Joe Biden’s Border INVASION is destroying our country and killing our citizens! The horrible murder of 22-year-old Laken Riley at the University of Georgia should have NEVER happened! The monster who took her life illegally entered our Country in 2022…and then was released AGAIN by Radical Democrats in New York after injuring a CHILD!! When I am your President, we will immediately Seal the Border, Stop the Invasion, and on Day One, we will begin the largest deportation operation of illegal CRIMINALS in American History! May God Bless Laken Riley and her family!!! Our prayers are with you!”

From Fox News:

UGA Police Chief Jeffrey Clark on Feb. 23 announced the arrest of Jose Antonio Ibarra, a 26-year-old illegal immigrant from Venezuela, who is accused of murdering Riley on UGA’s campus while she was out for a Thursday morning jog.

Clark said during a Friday evening press conference that Riley died of blunt force trauma.

Earlier, President Biden said the country’s laws and resources “haven’t kept up with our immigration system.”

“It’s broken, and our politics has failed to fix it,” the president said. “To my Republican friends on the hill: Doing nothing is not an option. Compromise is part of the process.”

Biden ignored questions while shuffling towards Marine One on Monday.
