Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp Demands Answers From Biden on Illegal Immigrant’s Status in UGA Murder Case

Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is demanding answers from President Joe Biden following the murder of a 22-year-old nursing student, Laken Hope Riley, on the campus of the University of Georgia.

Reporting from Fox News:

The letter came as 26-year-old Jose Antonio Ibarra, was charged as the suspect in the murder of the 22-year-old nursing student on the UGA campus.

Three ICE & DHS sources told Fox News that Ibarra is a Venezuelan national who crossed illegally into El Paso, Texas, in September 2022 and was released into the U.S. via parole.

Kemp addressed a letter to President Biden on Saturday morning, seeking clarification and demanding the White House secure the southern border.

“Frankly, Mr. President, your continued silence in response to these reasonable requests is outrageous,” Kemp wrote in the letter, which was posted on X. “The American people deserve to know who is illegally entering our country due to your administration’s failures, and what risks and challenges every state must now face.”

In the letter, Kemp sought information on Ibarra’s current immigration status and why the administration had allegedly underscored the urgency of sharing the suspect’s immigration status promptly.

“Why was my administration not made aware of the asylum claims and subsequent release of an illegal resident who presented fraudulent identification?” Kemp asked. “What is the current immigration status of Jose Antonio Ibarra and why has this information not been relayed to my administration?”
