Last night, Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, joined Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News to discuss the impacts of lax immigration enforcement on communities throughout the United States. Today, at 10:30 a.m., the House Judiciary Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee will hold a hearing to examine the need for immigration enforcement. The hearing will be broadcast live at judiciary.house.gov.

Congressman Goodlatte: “This is a totally preventable crime that occurred in Maryland and it happens all over the country and it happens very frequently. It is the result of sending the message to the world: you come to our border, we are going to release you in the interior of the country. This is now changing under this new administration.”

Background: Last week, Congressman Goodlatte asked Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly for information on the two suspects who allegedly raped a young girl at Rockville High School in Rockville, Maryland. Jose Montano, 17, from El Salvador, and Henry Sanchez-Milian, 18, from Guatemala, allegedly forced a 14-year-old female student into a restroom at her school and subsequently raped and sodomized her. DHS has confirmed to the House Judiciary Committee that both suspects entered the U.S. at the Rio Grande Valley sector last year as unaccompanied minors.
