Republican North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop on Tuesday asked Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas about why the illegal immigrant charged in the death of Laken Riley was allegedly paroled.

Venezuelan illegal immigrant Jose Ibarra allegedly killed Riley, a 22-year-old Georgia nursing student, on Feb. 22. Bishop accused Mayorkas of paroling Ibarra into the United States and asked the DHS secretary why, but he was unable to provide an answer.
