Nursing student Laken Riley was murdered by an illegal immigrant last month, something that would never have happened if the U.S. could successfully keep people out of the country who are non-citizens or unauthorized.

In his State of the Union address on Thursday, Joe Biden acknowledged that murder, but mispronounced her name as “Lincoln Riley.”

Donald Trump, on the other hand, took the time to meet with Riley’s family.

Laken Riley: ‘She Was the Brightest Light in Every Room’

The meeting took place before his Georgia rally over the weekend.

Fox News reported, “Former President Donald Trump met with the family of Laken Riley backstage before speaking at a rally in Georgia on Saturday.”

“I met her beautiful mother and family backstage,” Trump told the audience in Rome, Georgia over the weekend. “They said she was like the best. She was always the best to us. They admit that she was the best, and she was the first in her class. She was going to be the best nurse. She was the best nursing student.” She was always the best. She was the brightest light in every room, they told me.”

Trump added, “She was the whole world to her parents and to her sister and just to the whole family.” 

The story continued:

Riley, a 22-year-old nursing student in Georgia, was allegedly killed by a Venezuelan migrant in the country illegally while she was on a jog on Feb. 22. 

Trump laid the blame for Riley’s death on President Biden. 

“Biden has implemented a formal policy that illegal aliens who intrude into the United States are granted immunity from deportation,” Trump said. “Thus, when this monster showed up at our border, he was set free immediately under the program. That crooked Joe created it.” 

Yesterday, Trump & Biden hit the trail in GA.

BIDEN: Spoke to a small crowd, was shouted-down & apologized to Laken Riley’s illegal alien killer.

TRUMP: Spoke to thousands, condemned Riley’s killer, consoled her family & received a standing ovation at UFC 299.
