Two illegal-alien teenagers who were placed in ninth-grade classes at Montgomery County Schools, Maryland, have been arrested and charged with the brutal rape of a 14-year-old girl, and at least one of the boys had a pending deportation order from ICE.
The boys, identified as Henry Sanchez, 18, of Guatemala and Jose Montano, 17, of El Salvador, approached the young girl in the hallway near the gymnasium inside Rockville High School during school hours about 9 a.m. on Thursday.
Montano asked her for sex.
The girl refused — twice.
So the two boys forced her into the boys bathroom and then into a stall.
Montano pushed her into the corner of the stall and began kissing her neck, despite her repeatedly telling him to stop. He unzipped her top, forcibly removed her clothes and the two proceeded to rape her at the same time, then traded positions and raped her again.
She cried out in pain, the report says, but the assault continued. By the time it was over, they had raped her anally, orally and vaginally, according to the police report.
The victim reportedly knew Montano as a friend but did not know Sanchez.
Sanchez had a pending deportation order, which was not carried out while immigration activists tried to block the deportation.
“18-year-old criminals set to be deported should not be a freshman in our public schools,” stated a post on the website of Help Save Maryland, an organization that opposes illegal immigration.
Maryland is perhaps the most welcoming state for illegal aliens and refugees in the Eastern United States, with Montgomery County the most welcoming county in the state. Maryland gives in-state tuition rates to illegal-alien college students, and its legislature is considering a bill that would declare Maryland the country’s first sanctuary state. Montgomery County is already a sanctuary county, denying 63 ICE requests to turn over illegal-alien criminals last year, Fox News reported.
These policies helped create a culture that allows a young girl to be raped and sodomized in a bathroom stall by two illegal-alien boys, at least one of whom was ordered to be deported, border hawks told WND.
WUSA 9 confirmed that ICE had a detainer on Sanchez, a citizen of Guatemala, who had an outstanding deportation order for his arrest. Yet he continued to attend school in Maryland.
When interviewed by police, Montano denied having any sexual contact with the victim. Rather, he said they went into the bathroom to “tell jokes.”
The two male students were arrested later that day at school. The school system put out the following statement without saying why two young men, ages 17 and 18, were placed in ninth grade, nor did it reveal the immigration status of the accused students:
“Ensuring a safe, secure and welcoming learning environment for all of our students is our top priority. Our staff remains vigilant in the monitoring of our school each and every day. Please remind your child that if they believe they are a victim of an assault or see something inappropriate, they should immediately tell a staff member.”
Forensic investigators said an inspection of the boys bathroom later turned up suspected blood “that may be mixed with male fluid,” the court documents stated.
Sanchez and Montano were living in the Aspen Hill neighborhood of Rockville, and they have been charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense. They were denied bond by a judge who said they were dangerous and a flight risk.
If convicted, they could get life in prison.
William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, said this is a rare case where the news of a rape of a student on school property managed to leak out into the local media.
“It’s a miracle that anyone is even hearing about this case, because first the victim had to report the crime, and a lot of crimes like this do not get reported.
“Secondly, once it was reported, it had to make it out of a school system. And quite often, schools suppress the sharing of information like this.
“And then you have to get past the local media, which often strives to conceal the crime altogether, or to conceal the immigration status of the perpetrator.”
He said ALIPAC is calling for “every single government worker” that put 17- and 18-year-old illegal immigrants in classes with ninth-grade children to be terminated from their jobs.
He’s also calling for full transparency concerning the perpetrators, who are both being tried as adults.
“We need to know if these particular illegal immigrants were beneficiaries of the Obama’s and now Trump’s DACA illegal amnesty program,” Gheen said.
‘People do what they feel they can get away with’
Hessie Harris, a spokeswoman for Help Save Maryland, said the boys “obviously had no fear” of being deported while they were in school, even though at least one was subject to deportation, having been denied asylum by a judge. She said Rockville officials have recently discussed codifying their sanctuary city policies and a bill has been introduced in the Maryland Legislature that would make it a sanctuary state.
“I really feel these policies are responsible for this type of behavior. People do what they feel they can get away with, so why would these boys think they could get away with this?” she asked. “I’ll tell you why. Because they are in Maryland and in a sanctuary city, and they don’t fear any type of repercussions.
“It’s horrible that a parent has got to fear sending their child to school. There are many other stories we’re hearing about, including one of a family whose child was transferred out of a school in Maryland because their child was being bullied by an illegal alien and the school wouldn’t do anything about it.”
She said most cases of rape and assault by violent illegal-alien students never see the light of day in Maryland schools. She believes it happens daily.
