Trump blames Biden for Rachel Morin’s murder: ‘Joe refuses to shut down the border’

The 37-year-old mother of five was killed on a Bel Air, Md., hiking trail on Aug. 5, 2023, by Victor Martinez-Hernandez, a migrant from El Salvador, according to police.

Martinez-Hernandez, 23, illegally crossed into the US in February 2023. He was arrested in Tulsa, Okla., on Friday after police matched his DNA to the gruesome crime scene.

“ANOTHER one of Crooked Joe Biden’s Illegal Immigrant Criminals was just charged with raping and murdering ANOTHER innocent American woman!” Trump, 78, raged on Truth Social.

The presumptive Republican nominee for president likened Morin’s slaying to the February murder of 22-year-old Georgia nursing student Laken Riley, whose alleged killer also entered the US illegally.

“Rachel Morin was on a run in Maryland, just like Laken Riley was in Georgia, when she was brutally killed by an illegal monster who was wanted for murder in El Salvador and fled to the USA because he knew Crooked Joe would let him in,” Trump wrote. “Now Rachel Morin’s 5 young children will grow up without their mother because Crooked Joe refuses to shut down the border.”

Authorities said Martinez-Hernandez has ties to Salvadoran street gangs and a violent history.

He’s wanted for the assault of a mother and young girl in Los Angeles and a murder in El Salvador, according to officials.

Trump railed against his 2024 opponent over his administration’s plan to offer work permits and deportation protections to illegal immigrants who marry American citizens later this week — provided they’ve lived in the US for at least 10 years.

“As a matter of fact, this week, Biden is preparing to give MASS AMNESTY to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens!” he said. “This is unsustainable and can’t be allowed to continue!”

Trump vowed to “SHUT DOWN THE BORDER and start deporting millions of Biden’s Illegal Criminals” on day one of his administration if elected.

“We will once again put AMERICANS First and MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN!” he added. “To Rachel Morin’s family and especially her 5 children, May God be with you!”
