Insanity Over Illegal Immigration
By: Bill O'ReillyMarch 22, 2017

As we reported extensively last night, a 14-year-old girl in Rockville, Maryland was raped in a high school bathroom by two men allegedly in this country illegally.

The incident is beyond shocking. An 18-year-old from Guatemala and a 17-year old from El Salvador were freshmen at the school. Freshmen.

Authorities say they dragged the 14-year-old into a bathroom and brutally raped her.

Fox News covered the story extensively last night, but ABC, NBC and CBS did not cover it on their nightly news broadcasts.

Nor did they cover it this morning.

CNN did not cover the Maryland story in primetime last night.

Ditto MSNBC.

That is beyond anything I have ever seen in my forty years of journalism.

A story of that magnitude ignored by the national media.

We all know why illegal immigration is a political issue.

President Trump has made the apprehension of undocumented criminals a top priority.

The Democratic Party is resisting that, saying that all illegal aliens are being demonized and that presents danger to that community.

Now every fair-minded American knows the immigration system is broken, and Congress has refused to fix it.

As I said last night, we don't know who is here. We don't know where they are and we don't know what they're doing.

'They' being people who illegally enter this country.

It is beyond the pale that even after this poor 14-year-old girl had her life brutalized, the Maryland House of Delegates actually voted to make the state a sanctuary situation. 

Thankfully, the Governor of Maryland Larry Hogan has said he will veto that legislation.

But how on earth could members of that Maryland body after this poor young girlgets attacked do that?

It is incomprehensible.

Many Americans have had enough. For decades, Congress has looked the other way as millions of people have poured into the USA without proper credentials.

Most of these people are harmless and many do contribute to our society.

But the fact remains that the federal government has lost control over the immigration process and that many states and cities will not obey federal law, creating anarchy.

Here's the best example I can give you - between January 28th and February 3rd of this year, more than three thousands detainers were ordered by the Department of Homeland Security.

That means that local jurisdictions were asked to hold illegal aliens considered dangerous.

Two-hundred-six of those aliens were released by sanctuary places despite the federal demand.

One-hundred-forty-two of those released came from one place - Travis County in Texas. That's Austin.

We trust Texas officials will stop the madness in Travis County as they have promised.

But you can see how anarchy is being openly practiced in some places.

There comes a time when citizens of any country have to demand justice, demand protection, demand the law be respected.

We have not - have not - come to that time in America.

We have a president who vows to stop the illegal alien criminal madness.

But we have a media that openly opposes that - allowing the sanctuary movement to pretty much run wild.

And that's the memo.
