Fewer illegal immigrants identified in Frederick County

FREDERICK — Frederick County sheriff’s deputies say they’re arresting fewer illegal immigrants.

The Frederick News-Post reported Tuesday that the number of people identified as illegal immigrants after they were arrested for other alleged crimes fell in 2011 for the second straight year.

The sheriff’s office reported 181 such cases in 2011, compared with 227 in 2010. The number peaked at 285 in 2009, the first full year of the agency’s partnership with the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement office.

Capt. Tim Clarke says it’s hard to pinpoint the reasons for the decline. He says the enforcement program could be one factor. He says the slow economic could be another.

The immigrant advocacy group CASA de Maryland says the so-called 287(g) program enables local police agencies to illegally target Latinos.


  1. There is only one concluding way to rid illegal aliens from the United States, which is throw out those radical Politicians, Governors, mayors, judges police chiefs and every elected official, city manager and councilman who are anti-sovereignty and pamper them with taxpayer dollars. Their oaths of allegiance are meaningless to them as they have shown by their pro-illegal immigration agenda’s. Both political parties have been complicit in the flood of illegal migrants and immigrants that is estimated to be well over 20 million, not the numbers calculated by the US census bureau? Our only chance of stopping this scattering pestilence is to support the business mandatory E-Verify program and the Birthright citizenship Act that must be introduced in Congress right now.

    Join the TEA PARTY, the People’s Party of America and vote a senate and house into office, displacing all those politicians and elected officers who protect illegal migrants and immigrants. These old party agenda is profit, votes and exploitation, and are in collusion with churches, unions, foreign governments and radical organizations and special interest groups. Illegal immigration has been forced on taxpayers through ‘UNFUNDED MANDATES’. These acts include free health care, free schooling, and has attributed to the loss of safety-net for Americans; coerced on citizens and lawful residents by liberal influenced courts.

    Frosty Wooldridge said in his latest article:

    Every indicator that our country is failing shows up daily with 15 million unemployed, 7 million underemployed, 46 million Americans subsisting on food stamps, $700 billion annual trade deficit, $15 trillion national debt, endless wars that cost $15 billion monthly and thousands of kids dropping out of high school daily. I have said it before: illiteracy defines a third world country. With 42 million functionally illiterate Americans, we are well on our way. Nonetheless, Congress pumps over 125,000 immigrants into this country every 30 days. I am beyond exasperated as to why and how we can do this to our country.

Investigate even more the terrible penalty our nation pays, for unending spending on foreign nationals at American Patrol. Seek out your politician either by phone at 202-224-3121, or go their office in person. Proclaim to them they are–OUT–if they vote for any kind of AMNESTY, disguised as Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

  2. There are fewer arrests of illegal aliens in Frederick County because the vast majority of these lawbreakers have moved to Montgomery County. Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett has the red carpet out for illegals and provides free heathcare, housing assistance, day laborer centers so they can find jobs and more! And there is no chance that Montgomery County Police Chief Tom “Barney Fife” Manger will ever arrest and detain an illegal immigrant, much less turn them over to the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities.
