In an official White House video, President Donald Trump says Mollie Tibbetts was “permanently separated from her family” and renews his call for a border wall.

“Mollie Tibbetts, an incredible young woman, is now permanently separated from her family,” Trump says in the video released on Thursday.

A person came in from Mexico, illegally, and killed her. We need the wall. We need our immigration laws changed. We need our border laws changed. We need Republicans to do it because the Democrats aren’t going to do it.”

“This is one instance of many,” Trump continued. “We have tremendous crime trying to come through the borders. We have the worst laws anywhere in the world.”

“We need new immigration laws, we need new border laws. The Democrats will never give them.”
