Cedar Lake – Following the news of the passing of Laken Riley at the hands of a Venezuelan illegal immigrant, Randy Niemeyer, Lake County Councilman and Republican Congressional candidate for Indiana’s First District issued the following statement:

“I am sickened by the news over the weekend of the death of Lakin Riley, a twenty-two-year-old Georgia nursing student who was kidnapped and murdered by a Venezuelan illegal immigrant. My thoughts and prayers go out to her friends and family.

“As we mourn the loss of this promising young life, we must also address the root causes that allowed such a horrific incident to occur. When will enough finally be enough? How many lives need to be lost before politicians like Frank Mrvan and Joe Biden stop playing political games with our safety? A secure nation begins with secure borders, this tragedy underscores the urgent need to stop the flow of illegal immigration and the chaos it creates through our Southern border,” stated Niemeyer.
