Elder Patriot – Daily Caller editorial director Vince Coglianese appeared with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last week to discuss the growing numbers of crimes being committed by illegal aliens in our communities and the rank and file police officers and prosecutors who are furious over it.
Carlson: “Carrasco-Hernandez (alleged to have sexually assaulted his 15-year-old stepdaughter) is the seventh illegal immigrant arrested for a sex crime in Montgomery Country just since July 25th…
“…So, why are we just learning about this now? Is there some reason that seven of these stories have come to light in such a short time?”
Coglianese: “… Seven is the number you brought up since July 25th. That’s the number of people who’ve been arrested on rape or sexual abuse charges. The majority of these cases are rape or sexual abuse of a minor.
“These are children who are being hurt in almost all of these cases.
“The reason why we’re all of a sudden finding out about this concentration of stories is not that this is a new phenomenon, it’s that rank and file police officers and prosecutors in Montgomery County are furious at their own leadership for allowing this problem to continue to fester as long as it has.”
A Department of Justice press release from December 21, 2017 shows why law enforcement officials have had enough:
“On Dec. 18, 2017, DOJ and DHS released the FY 2017 4th Quarter Alien Incarceration Report … found that more than one-in-five of all persons in Bureau of Prisons custody were foreign born, and that 94 percent of confirmed aliens in custody were unlawfully present.”
With an estimated 22,000,000 illegal aliens already in the United States, they represent 1/15th of the population, yet they fill 1/5th of the federal prison population.
Allowing for the fact that many known criminal illegal aliens are released under policies adopted by sanctuary cities, like Montgomery Country, MD, and not turned over to federal authorities, the official finding of 1/5th is undoubtedly low.
That means illegal aliens commit crimes – federal crimes – at a rate 5 times greater than the general population.
In response to criticism Montgomery County has been receiving of late, the county council issued a statement that included this doozy:
There has been a lot 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. 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.
Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, challenged Montgomery County Chairman, and staunch defender of their sanctuary policies, Marc Elrich to a debate:
“I’ll defend the children and crime victims, Elrich can defend rapists and murderers.”
