Update: Christina Greer apologized for her “flippant” remark Wednesday morning.
Yesterday I said something flippant that was unintended. Mollie Tibbets was a promising young woman who lost her life. My hope is that her family will find peace & justice and that her murder is not used to justify a discriminatory immigration policy. #Apologiesaremyown.

MSNBC guest and Fordham University professor Christina Greer dismissed the murder of Mollie Tibbetts, who was allegedly killed by an illegal alien, by referring to her as just “a girl in Iowa.”
Greer was upset Trump and Fox News weren’t covering the Manafort and Cohen trials enough and were instead focusing on Tibbetts’ death and the dangers of illegal immigration.
“Fox news is talking about a girl in Iowa and not this,” Greer complained on Tuesday.
Senator Tom Cotton went to Twitter and wrote, “Mollie would be alive if our government had taken immigration enforcement seriously years ago.”
Prayers for Tibbetts family & all who knew & loved Mollie. Lots of questions—where did this illegal alien work? what was his work status—but one thing is sure: Mollie would be alive if our government had taken immigration enforcement seriously years ago. https://t.co/JScrv7aD5P
