The arrest of Romero has sparked a debate about illegal immigration in the United States. Some people argue that illegal immigrants are a threat to public safety and should be deported immediately. Others believe that illegal immigrants should be given a path to citizenship and that they should not be blamed for the actions of a few individuals.
Regardless of one’s stance on illegal immigration, it is clear that the murder of Lizbeth Medina is a tragedy that has left her family, friends, and community devastated. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.
