The press office for Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich (D) claims jail staff followed protocol when it released an undocumented immigrant accused of child sex abuse despite an immigration detainer on file.

The case, which ABC7 first reported Friday, follows months of mounting tension between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the politically left-leaning county of 1.1 million residents.

The article goes on to state the following:

On Tuesday, Luis Fredy Hernandez-Morales, 48, of West Springfield, Va., was booked at the Montgomery County Detention Center in Rockville on a charge of sex abuse of a minor. That same day, ICE lodged an immigration detainer against the Guatemalan national who is living in the U.S. illegally.

Hernandez-Morales was freed by Montgomery County officials and not turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for arrest and deportation.

“Despite Montgomery County officials’ claims that they had begun handing criminal illegal aliens over to ICE agents — so long as ICE officials had filed a detainer and scheduled a pickup time — the sanctuary jurisdiction released Hernandez-Morales, who came to the U.S. illegally from Guatemala,” Breitbart reported.

According to ABC 7’s Kevin Lewis, “ICE says it received only 15 minutes advanced warning of Hernandez-Morales’ release.

“You need to give us a fair chance to get down there, and I assure you, we’re going to do everything we can to respond to a facility whether it’s in Hagerstown, Rockville or Ocean City,” an ICE spokesperson told the outlet.

Lewis further reported, “Court documents state the 11yo girl awoke to Hernandez-Morales kissing her in bed with his pants off. Weeks later, he allegedly kissed the girl again and asked if she wanted to see his genitals. The 48yo is married and does youth ministry at a church in Gaithersburg, Md.”

Read Lewis’s posts below for additional details, including his efforts to get answers from the county.
