Father Of Illegal Immigrant Rape Suspect Arrested By ICE As Maryland Considers Becoming Sanctuary State

The father of the 18-year-old illegal immigrant accused of raping a 14-year old has been arrested by ICE.

ICE arrested Guatemalan Adolfo Sanchez-Reyes, 43, following the allegation that his son and 17-year old “freshman” Jose Montano raped a 14-year-old female student at Rockville High School, as reported by WTOP.

The arrest and rape scandal come while the state of Maryland is considering becoming a sanctuary state.

“I would plead with the people of Maryland to understand that this makes the state more at risk for violence and crime,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to Fox News Insider.

The lawyer of the 18-year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian told WTOP that the high-school “freshman” is in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security and that the DHS has “initiated removal proceedings” for the accused rapist’s deportation.

The Border Patrol had determined that Sanchez-Milian had entered the country illegally in August 2016, but a hearing with an immigration judge was never scheduled. The immigration status of the other alleged rapist, Jose Montano, has been concealed since he is a minor.

“They are conducting a comprehensive safety audit,” said Roger Berliner, president of Montgomery County Council regarding Rockville High School. (RELATED: ‘Safety Not Sanctuary’: Parents Protest School Where Illegal Alien Raped A 14-Year-Old Girl)
