Michelle Malkin, sanctuary opponents to rally Friday in Rockville; counterprotest planned in Montgomery County immigration stand-off

Opponents and advocates of Montgomery County's policy of not detaining prisoners with ICE detainers being released from the Montgomery County jail until federal agents can take them into custody will face off outside the Montgomery County Council building at 100 Maryland Avenue in Rockville tomorrow, Friday, September 13, 2019 from 11:00 AM to noon. A rally headlined by political commentator and author Michelle Malkin and WMAL conservative radio host Larry O'Connor will take place on the steps of the Council building.

Rally organizers say they will call on Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich to withdraw his executive order,"Promoting Community Trust," that put further restrictions on ICE cooperation this year. Elrich has said he will review aspects of the policy, and determine whether to make changes.

Activists and organizations who support the County policy, which has come under national political fire from the Trump administration after eight immigrants in the country illegally were accused of separate sexual assaults of women and children in the County over the last few weeks, are pledging to turn out in force to counter the rally. "Let's drown out the hate with NOISE," Showing Up for Racial Justice - Montgomery County said in a Facebook announcement of their counter-rally, "MoCo Stands with Immigrants," that will take place at the same time and location.

Malkin is touring the country to promote a new book, Open Borders, Inc.: Who's Funding America's Destruction?, the release of which has coincided with the Montgomery County controversy. Others slated to appear at the original rally include Shari Rendall of FAIR, Brad Botwin of Help Save Maryland, author Ying Ma and Montgomery County Republican Party chair Alexander Bush.

The counterprotest will include members of SURJ, host Takoma Park Mobilization, Jews United for Justice, CASA de Maryland, UFCW Local 1994, Montgomery County Civil Rights Coalition, Action in Montgomery, JCRC of Greater Washington, Poor People's Campaign, United We Dream, Sanctuary DMV, and other local unions and organizations.

  1. Given all these sexual assaults by men who are not here legally, it sure sounds like an orchestrated war on women.

  2. Everything old is new again. Immigrant bashing is a tried and true political trick as old as the hills. It's also good for selling a few books.

    1. An absurd response, intended to immediately dismiss any coherent response to the problems posed by illegal immigration. It also a response that very dishonestly conflates legal immigration and illegal immigration. Intellectually, you are aware there is a difference, and you are not worthy -- either intellectually or morally -- to wipe your face on this woman's shoes.

  5. Thank you Robert for reporting this in a direct way, without leaning to one side or the other. The comment above is gross. The writer picks out the Jewish organization to use against you, referencing the white supremacist slogan. Not sure what their point is, but it stinks.

  9. Montgomery County and Marc Elrich should be ashamed.Elrich is protecting illegal immigrant criminals and doesn't protect the citizens of Montgomery County.

  10. What Michelle Malkin (Maglalang) doesn't understand is that if F├╝hrer Trump decided tomorrow that he wanted to intern all Asian-Americans again the crowd she spoke in front of today would gleefully string her up.

    3. Does that mean we should make things fair by having illegal immigrants here to attack us? Get another line of argument.

  11. 5:11 not what I meant. Just trying to point out that of course someone criminals are immigrants. However so are pure bread white Americans. So the argument that when an illegal commits a horrific crime the consequence would be to arrest that person not an entire race.

    As The greatest president of all times said ‘There are good people on both sides’. I’m sure Robert would agree
