An illegal immigrant has been arrested in  Mongomery County, Maryland for a knifepoint rape. He becomes the 5th illegal arrested in this sanctuary county for a violent crime in the last month.

According to Fox News:

An illegal immigrant in Maryland is alleged to have crawled into the bed of a teenage girl while she was taking a nap and placed a knife against her throat before proceeding to rapeher, according to authorities.


The Montgomery County Police Department said Nelson Saul Reyes-Medrano, 46, is charged with first-degree rape, sex abuse of a minor, and first-degree assault in connection with the late August 2018 attack.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman told Fox News that Reyes-Medrano was living in the U.S. illegally and the federal law enforcement agency has lodged a detainer against him.



The latest arrest comes after another illegal immigrant accused of rape was released from the Montgomery County Detention Center just three days after being arrested. At the time, county officials said they notified ICE that the suspect was being processed for release that day, even after the federal agency filed a detainer.

This is beginning to look like a pattern in the wealthy county that has chosen not to work with federal immigration authorities.
