Cristhian Bahena Rivera – the illegal immigrant who is accused of killing Mollie Tibbetts last July – has just been awarded $3.2K of taxpayer’s money to use for an expert witness.
It’s great to know where our hard-earned cash is going….
Check out the story:
Fox 28 reported on the story:
The state of Iowa will pay $3,200 for an expert witness to help the man accused of murdering University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts.
A judge approved an application for the witness, who will look into techniques used to interrogate Cristhian Bahena Rivera after he was arrested.
During a 12-hour interrogation, Bahena Rivera confessed to following Tibbetts while on a run on July 18, 2018. He then led police to her body in a cornfield in a rural area not far from Brooklyn, where Tibbetts is from.
How is it possible that an illegal alien should be granted such aid?
Biz Pac Review has more details:
The $3,200 only covers the forensic expert’s research. Rivera’s lawyers will file separate requests so that Iowa taxpayers can pay for the expert witness’ travel and testimony at trial.
“The expert can provide insight on interrogation techniques and analytical investigative methods given the ‘length, context, language barriers and other factors involved in the police interrogation.’
The stipend is required for the expert to begin looking into those issues but doesn’t cover costs of testimony at trial or travel expenses. The defense will make separate requests for those funds if necessary.”
This is why illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers $116 billion every single year. But Democrats refused to give President Trump $5 billion to build a border wall that could have kept Mollie Tibbetts’ murderer out.
Illegal Alien Qualifies for Legal Aid Because He’s Poor
Amazingly, Iowa taxpayers must foot the bill for Cristhian Rivera’s legal defense — even though he’s in the country illegally — since he qualifies for public legal aid because he’s indigent.
So, just because he's poor, even though he is not an American citizen, we are forced to allow our tax money to help him in court.
This is the true cost of having illegal immigrants in our country.
Just another reason to build the border wall ASAP! With such large sums of money being spent on illegals, it would pay for itself in no time at all!
Twitter users have taken to using the platform to express their outrage, calling on Trump to get the wall built.
