A 14-year-old was allegedly raped by an 18 and 17-year-old illegal alien at Rockville High school in Maryland. However, what the Superintendent seems to care most about is upset parents using ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobic’ language in a reaction to this event.
“While I know this tragic incident has become part of a national political debate, I want to remind community members that the lives of real students have been forever affected,. While many have chosen to engage civilly in the conversation, far too many have crossed the line with racist, xenophobic calls and emails,” wrote Superintendent Jack R. Smith in an email.
“MCPS is working with law enforcement to identify those who are making threats toward our students and schools. This behavior will not be tolerated in our community,” he wrote in an email. Maryland Republican Governor Larry Hogan was furious over how this incident was handled.
“Why is an 18-year-old man in a class with 13- or 14-year-old girls? Why was his status not known to those folks? Why was he allowed to enter the country after he was picked up for illegally crossing the border — both of them? So there are a lot of questions,” asked Hogan in a TV interview.
“My biggest concern is the Montgomery County School System and their lack of cooperation and the lack of information they’ve been providing. Not only have they refused to provide any information to us, but they’ve refused to provide information to the state Board of Education, which specifically requested more information,” said Hogan.
