WATCH: Trump Reveals He Spoke To 'Devastated' Parents Of 22-Year-Old Laken Riley Following Murder

On Thursday, President Donald Trump ventured to Eagle Pass, Texas, to survey the crisis at the southern border alongside Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX), Border Patrol Union President Brandon Judd, and various rank-and-file members of border patrol. During his visit, Trump revealed that he had spoken to the parents of 22-year-old Laken Riley, who was murdered by an illegal immigrant in Georgia last week.

Trump gave his remarks about the "beautiful young woman" the day after he spoke to the "devastated" parents and one week following the murder. "A beautiful 22-year-old nursing student from Georgia was barbarically attacked... she was a beautiful young woman. I spoke to her parents yesterday, they are incredible people. They are devastated beyond belief. She was so beautiful in so many ways," he said.

"The parents are devastated, and they're incredible people," he said. "This is a Joe Biden invasion. A Biden invasion," Trump continued. "Biden will never say Laken Riley's name, but we will say it, and we will remember it."

Riley, who was described as a "shining light" by those who knew her, was found dead on the University of Georgia's campus on Thursday. One of the young woman's friends reported her missing after she did not come back from a jog near the school's intramural fields. Authorities eventually found Riley without a pulse. They attempted CPR but were unable to resuscitate her. The young nursing student had "visible injuries" that led to the authorities suspecting foul play and launching an investigation, eventually settling on 26-year-old Jose Antonio Ibarra as the main suspect. It was later revealed that Riley was beaten to death with an object that led to "seriously disfiguring her body … by disfiguring her skull." Following the beating, Ibarra then dragged her body to a secluded area.

During a press conference, UGA Police Chief Jeffrey L. Clark explained that Ibarra is not a citizen of the United States and that he potentially is from Venezuela. He has been charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, kidnapping, hindering a 911 call, and concealing the death of another, as previously reported by the DC Enquirer. Authorities in New York previously had custody of Ibarra for endangering a minor. Still, the NYPD released him onto the streets before Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could issue a detainer.

​​Laken Riley was an unnecessary casualty of President Biden's open border policies. Ibarra should have never been in the United States, and Biden's failure to even acknowledge Riley's death proves that he doesn't care about the consequences of his disastrous policies. Biden would much rather flood the country with millions of illegal immigrants than make a simple phone call to devastated loved ones.
