Laken Riley’s Mother Joins #SayHerName Campaign; Many Question Why Joe Biden Remains Silent


The White House issued a statement expressing condolences to the family and loved ones of Laken Hope Riley, who was tragically murdered on January 26.

The statement emphasized the importance of holding accountable those responsible for her death and deferred further inquiries to state law enforcement and ICE due to the ongoing nature of the case.

However, President Joe Biden has faced criticism for his silence on Riley’s murder and his apparent failure to reach out to her family. This perceived lack of response has fueled a narrative among Republicans, who question whether Biden’s silence is influenced by Riley being a ‘white victim’ compared to cases like George Floyd’s.

In contrast, former President Donald Trump claimed to have spoken with Riley’s parents, who were reportedly devastated by their daughter’s loss.

Trump seized the opportunity to criticize Biden, blaming him for what he described as the “invasion” of illegal immigrants and labeling him as “crooked Joe” and “the most incompetent president we’ve ever had.”

The hashtag #SayHerName has gained traction on social media, with many users joining the call for justice and advocating for stricter laws against illegal immigration in the United States. The case of Laken Riley has become a focal point in debates surrounding immigration policy and law enforcement.
