FAIR and Help Save Maryland Action Alert!! – Contact Maryland State House Over Sanctuary Bills – Link Provided

Make Your Voice Heard in the MD Legislature

The Maryland General Assembly is currently considering several bills to address dangerous sanctuary policies.  Sanctuary policies prohibit or restrict law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration officials, allowing criminal aliens to live and work freely in communities.

The General Assembly will be holding hearings on critical measures to defeat sanctuary policies in the state.

  • On February 21, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 830, which requires enhanced state and local cooperation by requiring correctional facilities in the state to notify ICE at least 72 hours before an individual with an immigration detainer is released from custody; and
  • On March 7, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on House Bill 598, which will prohibit sanctuary policies and require local governments to fully cooperate with federal immigration officials.

The General Assembly also has scheduled hearings for dangerous legislation to obstruct immigration enforcement.

  • On February 21, the Senate Judiciary Proceedings Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 835, a dangerous bill that prohibits Maryland officials from engaging in any immigration enforcement activities, including mere cooperation with federal authorities with regard to criminals in custody; and
  • On February 28, the House Judiciary Committee will also hold a public hearing on House Bill 1362, a similar bill that blocks Maryland from engaging in any immigration enforcement activities or cooperation efforts.

Baltimore advocates fear increased enforcement of undocumented immigration

Yvonne Wenger and Alison Knezevich Contact Reporters

Advocates for immigrants say they are tracking reports of federal agents stopping and detaining undocumented immigrants in the Baltimore area amid an enforcement crackdown elsewhere in the country.

While the courts have halted Republican President Donald J. Trump‘s order to block visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement launched a series of “targeted enforcement operations” last week in cities across the country, including New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles.

ICE officials say Maryland wasn’t part of those operations, but agents are working continually to apprehend foreign nationals eligible for deportation.

Elizabeth Alex, regional director of the immigrant advocacy group CASA of Baltimore, said immigrants — including those who are living in the country illegally — are “very afraid.” (Note: Feel free to email Elizabeth Alex at: ealex@wearecasa.org)

“They say, ‘I am scared every day when I go to work that I won’t be able to come back,'” she said. “‘If I was deported, I don’t know what I would do with my children.'”

Alex said CASA lawyers are researching allegations that undocumented immigrants were detained by federal officials after leaving area courthouses or after being stopped for minor traffic offenses.

Brad Botwin, director of the anti-illegal immigration group Help Save Maryland, accused CASA of spreading “panic in the illegal alien community” instead of “allowing ICE to do their job — detaining, arresting and deporting illegal aliens.”

Seattle ‘Dreamer’ sues following ICE arrest for gang affiliation

February 15, 2017 at 11:55 am Seattle Times

Immigrants and civil-rights attorneys have filed a petition in federal court in Seattle seeking the release of a 23-year-old Mexican immigrant brought illegally into the U.S. as a child but given a work permit under the Obama Administration.

The petition challenges the immigration detention and seeks the release of Daniel Ramirez Medina, who his attorneys say was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents on Friday. The agents were conducting an action at his father’s house and Medina was detained, according to the news service Reuters and a news release by the attorneys in his case.

ICE countered in an email Tuesday night that Medina — whom they identify as “Mr. Ramirez” — was a “self-admitted gang member” encountered during the arrest of a felon who had previously been deported.

He is in custody at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma “to await the outcome of removal proceedings,” said ICE Northwest spokeswoman Rose Richeson.

“ICE officers took Mr. Ramirez into custody based on his admitted gang affiliation and risk to public safety,” Richeson said.

ICE did not respond when asked whether Medina has a criminal history. His attorneys said the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees ICE, considered him to be “lawfully present and is legally authorized to work in the United States,” a status which would usually preclude a serious criminal history.

This Is Just Outright Heinous – ALERT: Gaithersburg Teen’s Gang-Related Murder: 10 Suspects Charged In Murder Of 15-year-old Gaithersburg girl

Police say 10 people have been charged in the murder of a 15-year-old Gaithersburg girl whose body was found Feb. 11 in Virginia.

By    February 15, 2017 4:51 pm ET

GAITHERSBURG, MD — Authorities say 10 people — four adults and six juveniles — have been charged in what is now described as the gang-related murder of a 15-year old Gaithersburg girl whose body was found in Springfield, Virginia. The remains of Damaris Reyes Rivas, of Gaithersburg, who was reported missing in December, were found Saturday near a Springfield industrial park. On Wednesday, Virginia authorities charged the 10 suspects with abduction and gang participation.

Additional charges are pending further investigation and detectives are working with the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, Fairfax County Police said at an afternoon news conference. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, through an autopsy, has ruled Reyes Rivas’ death a homicide, police said.

Questions are being raised about why Montgomery County Police, who frequently use social media to release photos and information about missing residents, never issued such an alert for Damaris A. Reyes Rivas, 15. While police tracked her cell phone and social media use, and made flyers to hand out in Gaithersburg, the department didn’t issue a missing person alert on its Facebook or Twitter accounts, which it does frequently in similar cases.

According to Fairfax County Police the four adults charged in the girl’s death are:

  • Cindy Blanco Hernandez, 18, 11900 block of Winterthur Lane, Reston
  • Wilmer A. Sanchez-Serrano, 21, of no fixed address
  • Aldair J. Miranda Carcamo, 18, 7000 block of Skyles Way, Springfield
  • Jose Castillo Rivas, 18, 5800 block of Brunswick Street, Springfield (No Arrest Photo Available of)

Six teenagers have also been charged with abduction and gang participation, police said. One of them, a 16-year-old girl, is still being sought by police. The other teens facing charges are:

  • 15-year-old girl
  • 16-year-old boy
  • Two 17-year-old boys
  • 17-year-old girl
