Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton spoke at a recent rally in Montgomery County, Maryland, addressing sanctuary city policies and illegal immigration.
Fitton announced that the watchdog group has filed Freedom of Information Act requests to uncover details of the dangerous sanctuary policies there, and called for criminal prosecutions of public officials “who aid and abet illegal alien criminals.”
Flanked by former White House aide Sebastian Gorka, Fitton declared, “We’ve been battling sanctuary policies in Maryland and Montgomery County for too long.”
Montgomery County is enduring an alarming spate of sex crimes by illegal aliens, with nine sex crimes reported in the suburban county since July.
Among the crimes was a 37-year-old Honduran national arrested in August, charged with raping a 15-year-old girl at a home they shared. Two illegal immigrants from El Salvador were arrested in July for second-degree rape after allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl repeatedly over several months.
“There’s in-state tuition for illegal aliens,” Fitton told attendees. “Taxpayer subsidies to help illegal aliens find illegal work, and most dangerous of all, these outrageous sanctuary policies that allow criminal aliens to prey on the innocent, both citizens and non-citizens alike.”
“Sanctuary policies make every town a border town,” he said, adding that building a wall will do little good if “every major city in the country have sanctuary policies that are providing welcome to criminal illegal aliens.”
Fitton then called on the Trump Justice Department to go after the public officials behind these policies.
“I call on the Justice Department to initiate criminal prosecutions of those public officials who aid and abet illegal alien criminals!” Fitton said.
Meanwhile, sexual crimes against minor children continue at an almost epidemic level in Montgomery County — up to 9 cases as the local ABC affiliate reported on two more arrests this week.

Even more egregious, reporter Kevin Lewis noted that a judge granted the accused rapist a $100,000 bond and jailers have been instructed by the county to alert ICE should Gonzalez manage to post bond, but not delay his release in any way.

With children under seize in the sanctuary county, which is led by County Executive Marc Elrich, the Democratic leadership released a statement two weeks ago blasting President Trump, while falling back on the race card to dismiss concerns about their policies.
“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 post said. “These individuals and organizations should be ashamed for spreading false information seeking to establish a baseless, illogical and xenophobic connection between a person’s failure to obtain legal status and their propensity to commit a sex crime.”
