[Ed. – It’s bad enough that this sanctuary county seems to be a breeding ground for illegals who are sexual predators. But now they’re turning these criminals loose.]
Immigration officers are blasting Montgomery County after the release of an alleged child molester.
48-year-old undocumented Guatemalan national Luis Fredy Hernandez Morales of Springfield, Va. is charged with inappropriately touching a young girl he is related to. Police say he molested the girl while staying at her home in Montgomery County this summer. Hernandez-Morales is active in the youth ministry at a Gaithersburg church and police believe there may be other victims.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement says it lodged a detainer with Montgomery County on Tuesday. But ICE claims that detainer was not honored and that county officials released Morales-Hernandez on bond the next day. The federal agency says it then apprehended Hernandez-Morales in Springfield, Va. on Friday.
“The best way to serve public safety is to work together,” Acting ICE Baltimore Field Officer Director Frank Madrigal said in a statement.
