Baltimore County Exec, Ken Kamenetz Signs Order Protecting Immigrants In Country Illegally

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz on Wednesday took a stand against President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement policies.

Kamenetz announced he signed an executive order formalizing current police practices, which bar officers from profiling residents based on immigration status. Furthermore, he said the county detention center won’t hold anyone past their release date without a court order of detainer.

“As an attorney, I am confident that the presidential effort to investigate and detain immigrants is contrary to the Constitution, and Baltimore County will not disregard the law protecting individual rights,” Kamenetz said in a statement. “The president’s directives are causing fear and panic among otherwise law abiding residents. I am particularly concerned about the impact on children, and the chilling effect that is impacting productive police-community relations. Children are afraid to go to school, women are afraid to report domestic abuse, and families are afraid to seek medical care in a hospital out of the fear of deportation. We won’t let that happen in Baltimore County. Today’s executive order will make that crystal clear.”
