Robocalls and graffiti after Mollie Tibbetts' death worry Iowa Latinos
cnn ^ | Sept. 1, 2018 | Artemis Moshtaghian

The paint on the road near a predominantly Latino community near Des Moines read, "Deport Illegals." The sprayed-on sentiment didn't last the day, but some officials in the Iowa city are worried it's indicative of a simmering resentment for immigrants that has become more public recently. The red paint defaced both directions on a two-lane road on the city's south side on Thursday. "These actions are unfortunate and not consistent with Des Moines' spirit of compassion," Mayor Frank Cownie said. "Such actions have no place in our city." A city worker painted over the words later in the day. The city tweeted a photo of the graffiti removal, with the hashtag #NotInOurCity.

"Despite what some Democrats may wish in the depths of their hearts, Mollie was murdered by an illegal alien and her murder would never have happened if we policed our southern border properly," Donald Trump Jr. wrote.

Gang graffiti - including MS-13’s - often remains for years but this was removed inside 24 hrs.

Like statue removal, it’s amazing to watch government move at lightning speed when it serves their ideological aims.

Deaths of American citizens at the hands of illegal immigrants is considered collateral damage by the Democrat party in their quest for votes.

It said deport illegals not Latinos. What do people here legally have to fear?

>>> simmering resentment for immigrants <<<

“Immigrants” obtain VISA’s in their home country after (for the most part) thorough screening by State Department officials. Illegal aliens violate federal law by either over-staying their authorized time allotment, or sneak across porous borders.

Words matter. FAKE NEWS.

“Latinos” is the most euphemistic term possible for (in order):
Illegal Aliens
Illegal Immigrants
Illegals
Undocumented Immigrants
Undocumented Citizens
Non-citizen Residents
Dreamers
Blah, blah, blah!

I embrace the term “illegal immigrant”

Only illegals and those who enable illegals should be concerned, about breaking the law.

And that includes employers, too, who are knowingly breaking the law.

Go ICE!

I have German ancestry, but it doesn’t bother me at all when we deport another German Nazi (as we did https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/get-the-nazi-out-of-new-york-the-secret-operation-to-deport-the-last-living-nazi-defendant-in-the-us-was-a-rare-success/2018/09/01/2ea22aca-aa32-11e8-8a0c-70b618c98d3c_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.18ae3e479fba a week ago).

I want to deport every illegal. No exceptions. But I have no problem with Hispanics who are here legally. The same is true for Chinese, Poles, and all other people. If you are here illegally, you should be deported. If you are a citizen or entered the country legally, you’re welcome.

Central American illegal invaders are actually American enemies.

Those at CNN and elsewhere aiding and abetting these enemies are also enemies.

“Spirit of compassion”

Is code for spirit of concessions.

So sad and that illegal should have been deported and or imprisoned many years ago. Local women say he has been stalking women for YEARS.

True statement. However.. i think these are leftists ginning up stupid people who would rather throw a punch than use their brains. Glad they took it down... that kind of thing doesnt fix the problem. Like the media the fake news righties are just trying to not let a crisis go to waste.

How are the graffitti and beer brawls any different from the dems calling for gun confiscation every time one is used illegally?

Pelosi kissing up to MS-13 has been all over the morning news again this morning.

It’s a “predominantly Latino community” which they admit is full of illegals, anchor babies and welfare mamas. Once again, ICE is nowhere to be found.

“Latinos”

You know, the fairytale description of a race that never was.

Illegal invaders in this case.

And here is where the kissing up begins and ends:

“My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons — Mollie’s cherished nephews and my grandchildren — are Latino. That means I am Hispanic. I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American. As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more perfect union,” Rob Tibbetts wrote.

It sounds like he regrets he had but one Mollie to give illegal rapist murderers.

How many illegals have been killed after an American has been killed in the past? Oh yeah, zero. Thanks for your fake poll fake news.
