Larry O’Connor, a conservative radio host on WMAL, was drowned by chants of “USA” as he addressed a crowd of supporters in front of the Montgomery County Council Building on this morning.
He was appealing to a crowd of protesters who arrived at the building to protest an executive order by County Executive Marc Elrich that directed local agencies not to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Yet no MSM coverage…

On one side of Maryland Avenue, Sebastian Gorka — the former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump — was leading a crowd of supporters in a chorus of boos against a recent Montgomery County executive order that reinforced a lack of cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
On the other side of the street, counter protesters waving anti-ICE slogans were cheering along to speeches by Montgomery County officials and immigration activists.
The dueling protests, held in front of the Council Office Building in Rockville on Friday, were the latest high-profile reactions to an order that left county policies essentially unchanged but incited strong emotions on both sides of an ongoing national debate.
Proponents said the executive order enhances public safety by letting undocumented immigrants report and testify on crimes without fearing deportation. Opponents of the executive order, who called themselves the “silent majority,” argued that it emboldens undocumented immigrants and increases crime in the community.
“I think it’s absolutely terrible because it fails to protect us and it puts us in jeopardy,” said Gail Joyce, a Germantown resident who was born and raised in Montgomery County.
Joyce attended the rally with a friend who declined to give her last name to a reporter, citing fears of Trump opponents “doxxing” her — posting documents, or “docs,” with her personal information online. But Joyce, who woke up early to attend the protest, waved off the concerns. More
Providing sanctuary for illegals with criminal records means that you don’t care about American citizens. Does anyone here think that the politicians give even the tiniest bit of concern about what the people think or want?
They are correct to demand their county gov cooperate with @ICEgov @DHSgov @CBP to get the illegal border crossing alien criminals OUT.
