Title missing the word "Alien" because of 100 char limit
The attorney for the accused murderer of Mollie Tibbetts filed a gag order on Wednesday to prevent his client from being referred to as an illegal alien.
The defendant, 24-year-old Christian Bahena Rivera, has been charged with first degree murder for the slaying of Iowa college student Tibbetts. Rivera led investigators to the Tibbetts body in a cornfield after he admitted that he followed her while she was running.
Rivera, a Mexican national, has been residing in the Poweshiek County area for up to seven years, according to officials. He was employed at Yarrabee Farms and was initially reported to have been vetted in the governments E-Verify system, however, it was later determined that he had not in fact been checked via E-Verify and his employers knew him under a different name, reported the Des Moines Register.

The gag order purports that by referring to Rivera as illegal, he will be denied a fair trial, and consequently, the government must not refer to him as anything other than a documented resident.
The order states that Rivera has legal status in the U.S. and further claims that the Iowa Board of Regents has verified Rivera is in the jurisdiction legally.

That's not what US officials say. They can't find any immigration records in that name.
The illegal alien's lawyer would have more luck with his second claim, that he can't get a fair trial if he is called an illegal alien, with the judicial system in a country that doesn't have freedom of speech, like the UK.
Yeah, he’s just undocumented.
Come and get me coppers!!!!
Won’t have any effect on his case. In the court of public opinion...
Yep, they should call him what he really is, a Murdering Illegal Invader.
Soldier in the Soros Army.
I heard he can only be referred to as the All-American Boy Next Door. But if you want to refer to him as an Eagle Scout or Altar boy, they will accept that too.
Did she “get a FAIR trial by someone who is scamming everyone by being called what he is? ILLEGAL?
Murder is murder, regardless of immigration status. The status may have relevance, though, during sentencing, after the trial.
Does suck that if this order is approved, we’ll be obligated to point out his status as often as possible.
It’s TRUE! He is a legal citizen!
(if you go by the name and SS# that he stole)
Can he be called an alleged “murderer’?
It seems that the Iowa court of public opinion is infected with Stockholm Syndrome.
IOWs he definitely is an illegal alien. If he weren’t they would just simply report that.
Just call him a Mojado.
I got their gag order right here. (points in a southerly direction)
He is "undocumented" and doesn't have ID? - Check
He killed a U.S. citizen? - Check
He's not wearing a military uniform? - Check.
simple....give him a 13 knot gag order. hang him as a spy, and be done with it.
What about Catholic Priest?
the government must not refer to him as anything other than a documented resident.
Fraudulently documented foreigner is the most accurate.
Confused - why does an illegal get a trial at the cost of taxpaying legal Americans? Who is paying his lawyer?
