Parents outraged over two illegal immigrants savagely raping and sodomizing a 14-year-old Rockville High School student in the boys’ bathroom are “racist and xenophobic,” according to Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith.
According to published reports, the two men accused of raping the ninth-grader on March 16 are Jose Montano, 17, and Henry Sanchez Milian, 18. Both came into the country illegally within the last eight months and both were apprehended by federal border agents and slated for deportation proceedings. As often happens, Montano and Milian were set free and turned over to relatives.
Naturally, parents are outraged and want answers. Smith, on the other hand, is up in arms because he’s receiving “racist, xenophobic calls and emails” from these enraged parents.
“While 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,” Smith wrote. “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.”
Meanwhile, in Reality-ville, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R) is taking control of the situation and announced on Friday that the county’s sanctuary status for illegal immigrants poses a danger and potentially unsafe environment for school children. In light of the 14-year-old girl raped at Rockville High School, he publicly stated, “I’m not sure I can give assurances that their children will be safe.” He vowed to fully uncover the facts of the case, end the sanctuary status of Montgomery County, and make the county’s school district more accountable.
