‘Our Separation Is Permanent’: WH Drops Powerful Video of Parents Who Lost Children to Illegal Immigrants

The White House took aim at critics of President Donald Trump’s immigration policy with a powerful video of families whose loved ones were killed by illegal immigrants.

The video comes one day after authorities identified Cristhian Rivera, an illegal immigrant, as the chief suspect in the murder of Mollie Tibbetts.

Tibbetts caught the nation’s attention after she went missing while out for a jog just weeks before she was set to return to the University of Iowa for her sophomore year.

Authorities say Rivera’s car was following Tibbetts during her run. When officials questioned him, he brought them to her body. 

The White House released this video to remind Americans that the Tibbetts family is not alone.

Watch the video below:

The families each described the deaths of their children while jabbing critics of President Donald Trump’s strict immigration policies. The murders included hit-and-runs, strangulation, and gunshot wounds from known illegal immigrant gang members.

“We were permanently separated. Not just for a week or a month,” one mom said.

“This man wasn’t supposed to be here,” one dad added.

This video is clearly a response to criticism of family separation at the border — a policy that became front and center after a photo from the Obama era showed children in cages.

Since then, immigration policies — including the very existence of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — have come into question by some leading Democrats.

In response to the news of the murder of Tibbetts, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said policymakers should focus on “real problems” like family separations at the border. 

Clearly, the White House and these parents feel like their “permanent separations” are the real problem.
