Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a 24-year-old Mexican man who illegally came to the United States, was charged with her murder on Wednesday after he confessed to following her on her run.
Lang would not disclose the name that Rivera used to get a job. At his initial court hearing Wednesday, Rivera's bond was increased from $1 million to $5 million at the urging of prosecutors. "We are angry that a broken immigration system allowed a predator like this to live in our community, and we will do all we can bring justice to Mollie's killer". And Iowa's two GOP U.S. senators called the death a tragedy that "could have been prevented".
The body of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts was found 500 yards into a cornfield about 10 to 12 miles south from where police think she was abducted, an investigator tells PEOPLE. "He wouldn't really like talk", Bestell said.
Within hours, Trump noted the arrest at a rally in West Virginia.
At a rally in West Virginia on Tuesday night, President Trump told the crowd: "You saw what happened to that incredible, lovely woman. Should've never happened. Illegally in our country". The immigration laws are such a disgrace. We're getting them changed, but we have to get more Republicans.
"We get to know the family".
Reynolds also told reporters politics ought not be injected into the matter. A study published in February by the libertarian Cato Institute examining 2015 criminal data in Texas found native-born residents were much more likely to be convicted of a crime than immigrants in the country legally or illegally.
Sasse also inquired about Rivera's criminal record and whether law enforcement was aware of any previous crimes or was concerned he might pose a danger to public safety.
Although Trump claims legal US residents are less likely to commit crime, several studies from social scientists and the libertarian think tank Cato Institute have concluded that isn't accurate and that states with a higher share of people living in the country illegally have lower violent crime rates.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement representative said that the agency lodged an immigration detainer on Rivera after his arrest, so if he is ever released, he would be deported to Mexico. He said his client was a hard worker with the equivalent of an eighth-grade education, had no prior criminal record and deserved the presumption of innocence and a fair trial.
A friend of the missing Iowa girl, Mollie Tibbetts, who was found dead on August 21, said she started to break down the moment she found out her friend was dead. Documents immediately reviewed by the Des Moines Register listed several owners of Yarrabee Farms, including Dane Lang and Eric Lang, Craig's brother. It's about a three-hour drive from the resort city of Acapulco.
"What we based everything off of as far as saying he is an illegal alien is we worked with Homeland Security Investigations and they have him as an illegal alien", Mortvedt said.
Tibbetts, whose body was found on Tuesday, went missing while she was on an evening run in July.
An affidavit attached to the criminal complaint against Rivera alleged that he admitted to investigators he got out of his vehicle and started running alongside Tibbetts. He said she grabbed her phone and threatened to call police, then he "panicked and got mad", claiming that what happened next was "blocked" from his memory.
Brad Hohensee, school superintendent in the Brooklyn area, said the district's message to students is that the alleged kidnapping and murder of Tibbetts has nothing to do with "race or color".
According to the Labor Department's most recent National Agriculture Workers Survey, about 47 percent of hired crop farm workers in the US lack proper authorization to work here.
An autopsy to determine when and how Tibbetts died is planned for Wednesday. He faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.
