A politician in Georgia has brought President Donald Trump into his explanation of the murder of a college coed, allegedly by an illegal alien, and faced immediate backlash with demands that he resign from office.

Catcalls of "liar" and "please stop lying" greeted Athens-Clarke County Mayor Kelly Girtz as he explained his talking points about the tragic death of nursing student Laken Riley on the University of Georgia campus.

Police have alleged it was committed by Venezuelan illegal alien Jose Ibarra.

A report in the Georgia Star News explained that Girtz "denied that Athens is a sanctuary city."

He also denied that it does not comply with detainers filed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement that request local law enforcement hold illegal immigrants to be transferred to federal authorities for prosecution or deportation.

He said those words mean "different things to different people depending on the context of the discussion."

The local government, the report said, recently created an 18-page document claiming it is not a sanctuary for illegals. However, "the Clarke County Sheriff’s Department policy requires law enforcement to release illegal immigrants with ICE detainers unless federal law enforcement supplies a warrant. Even then, illegal immigrants will only be held for 48 hours."

Girtz was commenting on a 2019 video that appeared to include a sanctuary declaration.
