ERIC SHAWN (HOST): This is, Jonna, so heartbreaking and terrible that this illegal alien, who's been here for several years, has been charged in this horrendous murder. If he wasn't in this country illegally, Mollie Tibbetts, apparently, would be alive. 

JONNA SPILBOR (CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY): Would still be alive today. You can't help but compare the case to the Kate Steinle case. This is Kate Steinle 2.0. And if we had a wall, Mollie Tibbetts would be going to college in a couple of weeks as she should be. It is heartbreaking. 

SHAWN: Well, even -- not just a wall, but if actual laws were enforced, then perhaps that would be the case.
