As Twitchy has reported, the suspect in the murder of Mollie Tibbetts is a man who is in the country illegally. That horrible story comes after Kate Steinle was killed in San Francisco in 2015 by an illegal alien who was subsequently acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges.

Author Stephen King obviously thinks it’s ridiculous to focus on the killers’ immigration status, because legal citizens do terrible things too:

As you might guess, there were many applauding King’s comments, but the fact remains that if people like the man accused of killing Mollie Tibbetts were not allowed in the country illegally, she would still be alive.

But they can’t go with that because it would trample all over the Democrat narrative.
