A Republican congressman wants to send a message to President Joe Biden about the growing risk of his open-border policies that are now feeding a rising wave of “migrant crime.”

The message will be an empty chair.

On Wednesday, Georgia GOP Rep. Mike Collins posted on X that he had invited Laken Riley’s parents to Biden’s State of the Union address on Thursday night.

The family of the recently murdered 22-year-old nursing student, who was allegedly killed by an illegal immigrant, declined.

“Understandably, they have chosen to stay home as they grieve the loss of their daughter,” Collins added.

“Therefore, the seat reserved for my guest will remain vacant to honor Laken and all American victims of illegal alien crime.”

“As Joe Biden attempts to paint a rosy picture of the crime-ridden country he has created,” Collins continued, “he will look up at an empty seat that memorializes those we’ve lost because of his open border policies.”

Collins this week also introduced the Laken Riley Act that seeks to expand the list of crimes for which illegals could be deported, if they are caught. The bill also would give states the authority to sue the federal government for “immigration policy-related failures” if their citizens are harmed by illegals.

“Laken’s tragic murder at the hands of an illegal immigrant was another wakeup call – Americans are experiencing an illegal alien crime wave because of Joe Biden’s open border and local sanctuary policies that shield foreign criminals from accountability and deportation,” Collins posted on X on Monday.

“While we can’t bring her back, we must now turn our focus to ensuring this doesn’t happen to any other American.” 

Democrats in Congress and the liberal media have tried to defend both illegal immigrants and the president who created the tidal wave of what Democrats are now calling “newcomers” by arguing that illegals commit less crime than native Americans.

Lost on them, however, is the fact that those crimes would not have been committed at all if those illegals had been barred from entering the U.S. or deported as soon as they were discovered.

Meanwhile, WSB in Atlanta reported on Wednesday that Diego Ibarra, the murder suspect’s brother, who is also illegal and was busted for presenting a fake green card to authorities, is likely a member of a Venezuelan prison gang called Tren de Arugua.

Authorities determined that based on Diego Ibarra’s tattoos.
