Des Moines: Press Hours and Immigration Laws

des moines: Collin Daniel Richards makes his initial court appearance after being charged with the murder of Iowa State golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena, on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the Story County Courthouse in Nevada, Iowa, according to Toronto Star. Kelsey Kremer/The Des Moines Register / The Associated Press Hours after Cristhian Bahena Rivera was arrested last month in Tibbetts' death, U.S. President Donald Trump declared that the farmhand had killed the beautiful young woman because of the nation's disgraceful immigration laws. But politicians who quickly expressed outrage about the immigrant suspect charged with killing runner Mollie Tibbetts have been silent or more restrained about the white homeless man accused in the death of a college golf star from Spain. The president recorded a video citing Tibbetts' slaying in his case for building a wall on the border with Mexico and adopting other policies intended to keep immigrants from entering illegally. The White House press office did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday on Barquin, who was the Big 12 women's golf champion this year and a 22-year-old engineering student. So far, Trump and many others who followed his lead have not weighed in on the death of Celia Barquin Arozamena, who was attacked Monday while golfing on a course near Iowa State University.
