A little while back in Rockville, Maryland, two illegal immigrants allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl in a bathroom.
This girl has had her character questioned by lawyers. The Democrats in Maryland’s House of Delegates are ignoring her situation completely, passing a bill forbidding police from checking the immigration status of individuals they arrest, or retaining them long enough for federal officials to deport them. And now she and those who support her have been dealt another blow, this time from the Rockville School Superintendent.
Jack Smith is a guy who we don’t think has a lot of tact. Instead of reassuring parents that the school is doing what it can to keep their children safe, he decided it would be a good idea to attack parents’ outrage over the incident with this message:
I know this tragic incident has become part of a national political debate. I want to remind community members that the lives of real students have been forever affected. While many have chosen to engage civilly in the conversation, far too many have crossed the line with racist, xenophobic calls and emails. MCPS is working with law enforcement to identify those who are making threats toward our students and schools. This behavior will not be tolerated in our community.
At least this girl has one person looking for the truth. Maryland governor Larry Hogan is furious that Montgomery County officials have refused to provide information to both the governor’s officer and the state Board of Education.
He had a message for the school:
Why is an 18-year-old man in a class with 13 or 14-year-old girls? Why was his status not known to those folks? Why was he allowed to enter the country after he was picked up for illegally crossing the border—both of them? So there are a lot of questions … My biggest concern is the Montgomery County School System– and their lack of cooperation and the lack of information they’ve been providing. Not only have they refused to provide any information to us, but they’ve refused to provide information to the state Board of Education, which specifically requested more information.
