****WOW**** Dozens of MS-13 members in Maryland and Virginia are behind bars as part of ICE’s “Operation Raging Bull Crackdown.”

Commentary:  This is fantastic news.  This has been a long time coming.  May they not enjoy the loss of freedom.  Hats off to ICE and Maryland and Virginia Law Enforcement.  Another story, just came out, that, many MS-13 gang members are here as DREAMERS.  They should have no pathway to lawful existence in the United States.  Contact Congress and tell them NO to any pathway to AMNESTY and NO to keeping any part of DACA if Congress can’t vet those DREAMERS who may be members of known gang affiliations.  The notion that all these DREAMERS are good people who came here without any choice, well here is the fruits of their labor.  I would urge our Republican Statehouse in Maryland, to remember this when the “TRUST ACT” bill is in committee to make Maryland a Sanctuary State again, which we defeated last time.  

Hundreds Of MS-13 Gang Members Arrested In Immigration Raids

By Cameron Luttrell, Patch Staff 

MARYLAND — Dozens of MS-13 members in Maryland and Virginia are behind bars as part of an immigrate raid to stop the spread of violent transnational gangs nationwide. Nearly 40 reputed gang members were taken into custody in Maryland and Virginia out of a total of 267 MS-13 gang members and associates.

Dubbed “Operation Raging Bull,” the operation led by ICE Homeland Security Investigations made 214 arrests in the U.S., while 53 arrests were in El Salvador. ICE officials confirmed to ABC7 that 38 arrests took place in Maryland and Virginia.

Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice officials held a press conference Thursday to discuss the nationwide effort.

“MS-13 terrorizes communities through violent crime and extortion in furtherance of its mission to rape, control and kill,” Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said at the press conference. “MS-13 maintains a sophisticated global network that supports its involvement in a wide range of criminal activities in this country and others.”

The gang members were arrested for extortion, robbery, murder, human trafficking, prostitution and more. Foreign nationals arrested were from El Salvador (135), Honduras (29), Mexico (17), Guatemala (12), Ecuador (4) and Costa Rica (1). Sixty-four individuals had illegally crossed the border as unaccompanied alien children and most are now adults, officials said.

Illegal Immigrants To Share Concerns With Police Commissioner

Monday, November 13, 2017
Jacob Troxell, WBAL NewsRadio 1090

Illegal Immigrants in Baltimore afraid of calling 9-1-1 are sharing their concerns with the Baltimore City police commissioner today, in assistance with the nonprofit organization BUILD.

The organization collected cards from illegal immigrants at a meeting Sunday — one commissioner Kevin Davis was not able to attend. The cards will be delivered to Davis today.

Some immigrants worry if they call 9-1-1 for an emergency, the police may call Immigration and Customs Enforcement and have them deported.

“We cannot allow the City to be balkanized by the violence,” BUILD said in a statement Monday. “We must stand together to address the violence in every community.”

The commissioner has said in the past he won’t have his officers act as immigrant agents

According to BUILD’s Facebook page, their mission is to “Identify and develop leaders in every community.”

BUILD aims to do this by having people build relationships in face-to-face meetings. They are hoping to reschedule the meeting between Davis and immigrant members of the community.

****Can’t Say We Didn’t Warn You In Advance**** Immigrant Rights Group to Hold Forum on Maryland Trust Act

Commentary:  Now The ACLU Montgomery County Immigrants’ Rights Group is working on “Maryland Trust Act”, they are having a forum.  As I have warned over the last few weeks, it’s back and will be pushed even harder this time.  Once I find the time and location, I will post, so that opponents can show up as well.

  

An immigrants’ rights group is holding a forum on state legislation that would prevent authorities from stopping or detaining people solely to ask about their immigration status.

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — An immigrants’ rights group is holding a forum on state legislation that would prevent authorities from stopping or detaining people solely to ask about their immigration status.

The ACLU Montgomery County Immigrants’ Rights Group has scheduled the forum for Wednesday night in Silver Spring.

It will include a panel of state lawmakers who plan to bring the proposal back in the next legislative session, which begins in January.

The measure did not clear the General Assembly last session. Supporters call it the Maryland Trust Act, which they contend is designed to increase trust between immigrants and police. But critics say it would make Maryland a magnet for people in the country illegally with criminal records.

****MAJOR BREAKING NEWS**** Rockville, Maryland, Rape Case: Child porn charges have been dropped after a girl’s family said she wouldn’t testify; a teen is being held for immigration officials

Commentary:  I know from talking with my sources, that the family was pushed into having the charges reduced by the States Attorney office and now, the family states that the alleged rape victim, whose charges were reduced to Child Porn, is not going to testify.  If there was no rape, than how would the police report be so explicit and detailed and yet, suddenly, after pressure, the charges go down to Child Porn.  I wonder what the family and young girl is afraid of?  What did they get in return for not testifying?  You decide.  Or is it just a case of malice and complicity?  Or, did she really lie in her police report?  My opinion, she did not lie, but it’s not up to me to decide, only those involved know what really took place.  

ROCKVILLE, MD — A Rockville High School student who was charged and then cleared of rape in a case that drew national attention, including condemnation from the White House, has had a possession of child pornography charge dropped, too. While Henry Sanchez-Milian, 18, of Aspen Hill, no longer faces charges linked to a planned sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl who had accused him of the sexual assault only to later recant the charge, he remains in custody at the order of federal immigration authorities.

His attorneys sought to question the girl involved in the case, who reportedly had consented to sex acts with Sanchez-Milian, which her family objected to, Montgomery County prosecutors said. With that in mind, charges were dropped Friday to keep from harming the girl who has suffered mental-health issues.

“The parent of the victim expressed significant concerns that participation at trial would be detrimental to the physical and mental well-being of the child,” Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Herdman said in court, the Washington Post reports.

Sanchez-Milian’s friend, Jose Montano, 17, originally from El Salvador, in August pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography for having a lewd image of the girl on his cell phone, reports The Washington Post. The pair were charged in March with raping the girl in a school bathroom during school hours.

But in May, authorities dropped the rape charges filed against Montano and Sanchez-Milian, saying the evidence in the case was inconsistent with the allegations. The girl had planned the sexualencounter with the two boys, according to text messages between the girl and Montano, said Andrew Jezic, the attorney for Sanchez-Milian. Rape charges were officially dropped on May 9 against the teens.
