Maryland immigrant rape case shows US failure to track alien youth. By Nolan Rappaport

Rate this Entry

© Montgomery County Police

On March 16, 2017, two young men from Central America allegedly pushed a 14-year-old girl into a boy’s bathroom at a high school in Montgomery County, Md., and then raped her in one of the stalls. Some claim that Maryland’s sanctuary policies led to this brutal crime.

Maryland’s policies towards illegal immigration have made the state a popular destination for undocumented immigrants. It has been estimatedthat 250,000 undocumented immigrants lived in Maryland in 2014. But Maryland is not a sanctuary state … yet.

When President Donald Trumpissued an Executive Order declaring that sanctuary jurisdictions will lose federal funds, the County Council for Montgomery County responded with a statement assuring county residents that “County police do not enforce federal immigration law.” The Council also noted that, “executive orders are subject to public scrutiny and legal challenges.”

And only four days after the young girl allegedly was raped by undocumented immigrants, the Maryland House of Delegates passed House Bill 1362to restore community trust in Maryland Law Enforcement by clarifying the parameters of local participation in federal immigration enforcement efforts.”

    When will the Trump administration publish a list of or set up a VOICE office for immigrants beaten to death by US Border Patrol agents?

    See: Washington Post:

    Border agents beat an undocumented immigrant to death. The U.S. is paying his family $1 million.

    Sorry, I don't have a link.

    Please go to Google.

    A similar story also appeared in the LA Times earlier this month:

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/l...302-story.html

    Isn't this also the kind of thing that the Gestapo used to do to Jews in Nazi Germany?

    http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk...-police-state/

    To be fair, this incident took place while President Obama was in office, not Donald Trump.

    But are Trump's executive orders announcing that Mexican and other immigrants of color are now fair game for ICE roundups, arrests and mass deportation likely to make this kind of atrocity more, or less, likely to occur in the future while he occupies the White House?

    And, the above history site writes that under the 1936 Gestapo Law, the actions of the Gestapo were free from review by any courts of law. The Gestapo was a law unto itself.

    Isn't this the same kind of power that Trump is claiming for himself and the DHS in his Muslim ban and mass deportation executive orders, and in his threats, now being repeated by AG Jeff Sessions, to punish Sanctuary Cities, Counties or even states that refuse to go along with his agenda of mass expulsion and ethnic cleansing?

    All Americans, regardless of whether we have any personal connection with Auschwitz victims or not, should take to heart the strong rebuke by an actual survivor ot that death camp's gas chamber and ovens, Bernard Marks, to Donald Trump's chief immigration enforcer, the ICE director.

    According to the Huffington Post, Marks told ICE Director Thomas Homan at a public forum in Sacramento that "History is not on your side."

    Indeed, history is not on the side of Dona;d Trump's mass deportation race baiting and ethnic cleansing under the guise of immigration enforcement.

    I cannot find a working link - please go to Google for the Huffpost story.
