Since Montgomery County, Maryland agencies were ordered in July not to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or ask about immigration status, six illegal aliens have been arrested for sex crimes.
On Thursday, local station Fox 5 news reported the latest arrest, that of a man charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor:
“Another man in the country illegally is accused of sex crimes in Montgomery County. That makes six arrests in just the last months, a string of cases that’s prompted national scrutiny about the county's sanctuary status.”
While two other cases involve the rape of minors, one 11 and one 16 years old, the most controversial involves an illegal alien released despite an ICE detainer, Fox 5 reports:
“The case that's gotten the most attention involves a man accused of raping a woman at a Rockville hotel who walked free from the Montgomery County Detention Center after posting bond despite an ICE detainer.”
