Montgomery County, Md., is one of the richest counties in the country. It’s also an extremely left-wing progressive county that prides itself on being “welcoming,” which is liberal code for a sanctuary county. The sanctuary status is not official, according to county leaders. They pretend they aren’t fully on board with sanctuary policies because they don’t want to lose federal money, but they are.
That unofficial status pushed the city of Rockville to out-liberal its county and push to put their sanctuary status on the books, taking steps in that direction just two weeks ago. A new horrific crime may put that dream on hold.
Last Thursday, a 14-year-old student Rockville High School allegedly was forced into the boys’ bathroom and violently raped by two of her fellow freshman students. Those student were not typical students, they were grown men – ages 17 and 18.

The so-called sanctuary movement gave illegal aliens
permission to rob, rape, and murder Americans by
stigmatizing immigration enforcement. There is no universally accepted definition of what constitutes a sanctuary jurisdiction but there are hundreds of jurisdictions around the country that resist U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in the execution of their duties. In addition to Maryland, California is well on its way to becoming a sanctuary state.
According to Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, sanctuary policies endanger the public. “It’s a disgrace that the Maryland Assembly is working harder for illegal aliens than it is for the Marylanders who are harmed by illegal immigration.”
