After the liberal media initially refused to report that the murderer of University of Georgia student Laken Hope Riley was an illegal immigrant who was arrested multiple times, we have now reached the phase of the coverage where Republicans noticing the problem was the concerning issue of the story. That seemed to be the reaction CNN’s Jake Tapper had during Monday’s The Lead when he whined that “Republicans [were], obviously, seizing on this horrific tragedy.”

But before getting to bellyaching about Republicans calling attention to the crisis at the U.S./Mexico border that was literally getting people killed, Tapper openly admitted that it played a role in the murder. “And his status as an undocumented Venezuelan migrant is now renewing the debate over immigration policies,” he announced.

Tapper went on to report that the murderer had a long, violent history, was in and out of the American justice system, and was never deported.
