Former President Donald Trump spoke at a border event in Texas about the murder of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley.

Riley was allegedly killed by Jose Ibarra, an illegal immigrant from Venezuela, while she was on a run.

Trump slammed President Joe Biden for failing to address Riley’s death, saying the “monster” who killed her was released into the country by Biden.

“The monster that’s charged in the death is an illegal alien migrant who was let into our country and released into our communities by crooked Joe Biden,” Trump said, adding, “What [Biden] is doing is just unbelievable. Joe Biden will never say Laken Riley’s name, but we will say it, and we will remember it.”

Both Trump and Biden visited the border as illegal crossings remain high. The Riley case has drawn attention to crimes committed by illegal immigrants as the border crisis remains central in the 2024 election.

Ibarra was detained by Border Patrol in September 2022 but released, then arrested in August 2023 for injuring a child.

Riley’s family said she was amazing and her life was “tragically cut short,” asking for privacy in their grief.

Laken “was an amazing daughter, sister, friend and overall person in general,” her mother wrote.

“Her love for the Lord was exemplified in every aspect of her life. She will be missed every day, but we promise to honor her life moving forward in a very big way,” she added. “During this most difficult time, we ask that you respect our privacy, and provide us the time and space necessary to grieve our daughter’s life that was tragically cut short.”
