Maryland lawmakers withdraw ‘sanctuary state’ bill that challenged Trump’s immigration policy

A proposal to turn Maryland into a “sanctuary state” by limiting local law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration authorities died in the State House on Monday after lawmakers withdrew the bill — which had garnered a veto threat from the governor and a rebuke from Trump administration Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In one of the first big state-level challenges to the administration’s tougher line on illegal immigration, the original bill would have prevented police from inquiring about a person’s immigration status during a stop or detention and blocked jail officials from holding people past their release dates so immigration agents could detain them.

Debate over the bill, called the Maryland Law Enforcement and Governmental Trust Act, came amid outrage after two Montgomery County high school students, at least one of whom is an illegal immigrant, were accused of raping a 14-year-old girl inside a school restroom, shining a spotlight on the sanctuary movement and drawing a direct rebuke from the White House. Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, had said he would veto the bill if it was passed in the General Assembly.

Maryland is one of a handful of states to consider “sanctuary” status, which scores of cities and counties across the county have adopted. California, New York, Illinois and Nevada are reportedly considering their own versions of the Maryland bill protecting illegal immigrants from the reach of federal law.

    ANY SANCTURARY CITY, OR STATE SHOULD HAVE FEDERAL TROOPS SENT IN AND ARREST ANY MAYOR, CHEIF OF POLICE, SHERIFF AND OR GOVERNER THAT DECLARES THEM TO BE SUCH. THIS IS NOTING BUT A START AT A REVELOUTION IN THIS COUNTRY AND SHOULD BE STOPPED NOW.

    YOU ALL AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    I am only hoping that here in CA the current SB#1 which is “Creation of Sanctuary State,” is met with Felony arrest warrants for Brown, Newsome, Harris and all of the Legislators who drafted this Ridiculous and Unconstitutional bill, and will pass it into law regardless of public outcry.

    They got their Gas Tax thru last week and that is how they plan to fund the cut in Federal Funds when they pass the Sanctuary State Edict. The bill clearly states that the funds collected from the $.12 per gallon Gas Tax goes directly into the General Fund which means they can use it for anything they want and the Lie about needing it for the roads is in fact a Lie! Cuz every other time they have gotten new taxes for Road Construction they have spent the money on Social Programs like giving Free food to Illegal Mexicans.

    Now they need the money to pay Eric Holder to Defend illegals?

    WE need serious Federal Intervention into the management of this state as the people who idiot elected to do it are screwing everyone who lives here that works.

    Right now in CA there is more people on Welfare than people who are working!

    This is a problem that can’t be fixed by the people who created it as they have no intention of fixing it! They wanted it this way to try to shift this country to Socialism. And since CA is the 6th largest economy in the world, they have achieved something that can only be stopped by the US Government and specifically the Republican Party at the Federal Level.

    However to make a lasting impression, our Leaders here in CA must go to Jail, and serve as a deterrent, or else new ones like them will just continue to down this path towards Socialism and eventually on to Communism.

    This is really happening here, and I would caution all good citizens of other states that it can happen to your state too. Just let Liberals run wild for a couple of decades and you’ll be just like us!

    I personally blame the RNC for allowing this to take place in CA by denying funding to Candidates based on the “California is a Lost Cause” idea that they hold dear. It’s only a Lost Cause because you made it that way!

    Glad we finally got a Republican governor. Unfortunately we still have an almost veto-proof Democrapic legislature.

    This administration is not screwing around. Have any opinion you want about it, but these sanctuary cities are going to be hit hard on this one. I would never vote for the same governor or mayor again who stands behind this unlawful act. This excuse that it makes the city safer is absolutely ludicrious. Not to mention how it creates more homeless people and a strain on our welfare system. And just think, all of this to create a larger democratic base within their cities. STUPID!
