“Joe refuses to close the border”

Former President Donald Trump claimed Monday that President Biden is to blame for the brutal rape and murder of Maryland mother Rachel Morin because of his refusal to “close the border.”

The 37-year-old mother of five was killed on a hiking trail in Bel Air, Maryland, on August 5, 2023, by Victor Martinez-Hernandez, a migrant from El Salvador, according to police.

Martinez-Hernandez, 23, entered the U.S. illegally in February 2023. He was arrested Friday in Tulsa, Okla., after police matched his DNA to the gruesome crime scene.

“ONE of Crooked Joe Biden’s illegal immigrant criminals has just been charged with raping and murdering ANOTHER innocent American woman!” Trump, 78, raged on Truth Social.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee compared Morin’s killing to the February killing of 22-year-old Georgia student Laken Riley, whose alleged killer also entered the US illegally.

“Rachel Morin was on the run in Maryland, as was Laken Riley in Georgia, when she was brutally murdered by an illegal monster who was wanted for murder in El Salvador and fled to the US because she knew Crooked Joe would let him in. Trump wrote. “Now Rachel Morin’s 5 young children will grow up without their mother because Crooked Joe refuses to close the border.”

Authorities said Martinez-Hernandez has ties to street gangs in Salvador and a history of violence.

He is wanted for assaulting a mother and a girl in Los Angeles and for murder in El Salvador, according to officials.

Trump slammed his 2024 opponent over his administration’s plan to offer work permits and protection from deportation to illegal immigrants who marry US citizens later this week – provided they have lived in the US for at least 10 years .

“In fact, this week, Biden is preparing to grant mass AMNESTY to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens!” he said. “This is unsustainable and cannot be allowed to continue!”

Trump vowed to “close the border and begin deporting millions of illegal Biden criminals” on the first day of his administration if elected.

“We will put Americans first again and make AMERICA SAFE again!” he added. “To the Rachel Morin family and especially her 5 children, God be with you!”
