June 28, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC: On June 28, Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) sent a letter to Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler concerning the County Executive’s position on illegal immigration and border security. Congressman Harris sent this letter after County Executive Mohler wrote to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, expressing disdain for the Trump administration’s immigration policies. Congressman Harris made the following statement regarding the letter:

“The State of Maryland has the second highest frequency of MS-13 gang activity in the nation, second only to California. I am concerned that County Executive Mohler will not comply with federal immigration law, and instead follow the policies of his predecessor and establish Baltimore County as a sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants. No one wants to see children separated from their parents, and the federal government is taking action to keep together families detained for illegally crossing the border. But the safety of Maryland’s citizens is my top priority, and compliance with federal immigration law keeps Marylanders safe. I urge County Executive Mohler to comply with federal immigration law.”
