Another Rape in Montgomery County, MD, Sanctuary to Illegals

I know you are probably saying this is happening in every sanctuary city, county and state in America, but since I once lived in MoCo, these cases are of great interest.

(See my post from Saturday about two Salvadorans raping a child, here.)

Indeed the police there have notoriously bent over backward to please the multiculturally diverse population including the huge numbers of Central Americans—Salvadorans, Guatemalans and Hondurans—who have migrated there drawn no doubt by the county’s sanctuary status.

Today’s alleged rapist is Honduran, but you wouldn’t know that from the Montgomery County, PD press release.  (Hat tip: Gail.)

Well, at least we have to give the PD credit for posting his pic!

Suspect Arrested for Silver Spring Rape and Attempted Second-Degree Murder of Victim


Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – Special Victims Investigations Division (SVID) have arrested and charged Kevin Mendoza, age 26, of the 8500 block of 16th Street in Silver Spring, with the first-degree rape and attempted second-degree murder of an adult female that occurred at an apartment building in Silver Spring.

On August 16 at approximately 11:55 p.m., officers responded to the report of a rape that had just occurred at an apartment building in the 8500 block of 16th Street. Investigation by SVID detectives has determined that the victim was carrying items from her vehicle parked in the parking lot to the apartment building when she noticed a male that appeared to be following her. As she unlocked the door to the building, the male suspect grabbed her from behind and threw her to the floor. The victim attempted to yell and resist but the suspect began to strangle her with his hands. As the victim continued to attempt to escape the suspect struck her multiple times in the face and head with a closed fist. The suspect then raped the victim.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of multiple injuries sustained during the attack. Doctors advised detectives that the severity of the strangulation the victim suffered could have resulted in her death.

Through investigation, Mendoza, who is a former resident of the apartment building in which he committed the rape, was developed as a suspect.

Today, at approximately 10:34 a.m., officers arrested Mendoza on Ross Road in Silver Spring. He was transported to the Central Processing Unit and charged with first-degree rape, attempted second-degree murder, and first-degree assault. Bond information is not available at this time.

But get this….

No mention in that press release about Mendoza’s nationality or immigration status. 

So, I had a little look around and guess what!

ICE has lodged a detainer against him—a Honduran illegal alien!

From Fox 5:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officers lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center Tuesday on a 26-year-old man who police say violently attacked a woman in Silver Spring last week.


According to ICE, Mendoza is a Honduran National who is unlawfully present in the U.S.

ICE released the following statement on detainers Tuesday:

“Detainers serve as a legally-authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case. “

I’m wondering if the police in this wealthy county adjoining Washington, DC are having any second thoughts about the county’s sanctuary status and their long-held practice of leaving the illegal aliens alone?

  1. The people of this county will only care if their elite friends and relatives become victims of crime by illegals….if they are not in the elite club….they won’t care.

  2. I was in Roatan in May and a driver there (lady) advised she had sent her kids to MD to go to school. not college, and had recieved a scholarship . Wonder who gives out these scholarships to Hondurans

  3. I lived nearby Montgomery county about 20 years ago and finally left because of housing cost. Developers stacked bidding wars houses at the time over 300K with few available apartment were 800 month then. You saw few different cultures and progressively increasing with multiple immigration happening every year.
    Education is expensive in DC and Maryland with 4 year degree was the norm for living wages and home ownership. DC and Baltimore always had crime and high murder rate. Drug dealing was high paying job for many individuals without education or skills.
    The social services were already burdened by local church sponsored immigrates for their church mission service taking from local children and elderly. You are taxed to death and American dream in this area is government retirement with afterwards consulting, government service contracts and associated lobbyists. I took care of gang and violence crime victims and perpetrators

  4. In the 2003 – 2008 I would drive from New Jersey to Washington DC on an occasional basis. Invariably, 30 miles outside of DC, there would be large groups of Central American men standing on street corners looking for work. You knew they were Central American because the average man was about 4 feet tall and would be considered a midget in the USA. It looking like an invasion of DC right under the eyes of the politicians in DC.
