Officials in Montgomery County, Maryland – a self-declared “sanctuary” for illegal aliens – are criticizing conservative media and the Trump administration for drawing attention to the recent spate of illegal aliens arrested for sexual assault.
Seven illegal aliens from Central America have been arrested in the county, just north of Washington, D.C., on sex crime-related charges since July 25.
But the city council is putting the spotlight on the messengers.
The council said there “has been a lot of inaccurate information spread by the White House, President Trump, Acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli, local and national conservative news outlets and neo-Nazi sympathizers regarding our criminal justice system and its process.”
The council didn’t specify the “inaccurate information.”
What’s clear is that in July, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, a Democrat, signed an executive order prohibiting county law enforcement officers from asking about any individual’s immigration status.
County law enforcement also is barred from working with federal immigration agencies, such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
