A sanctuary jurisdiction in Maryland is back in the news again after yet another illegal alien has been charged with rape.

According to WJLA-TV’s Kevin Lewis, 26-year-old ride-share driver Oluwakayode Adebusuyi raped an intoxicated woman in his car. ICE says that the suspect is a Nigerian national living in the United States illegally and has lodged a detainer on him.

“On Sept. 1, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center on unlawfully present Nigerian national Oluwakayode Adewole Adebusuyi. Adebusuyi was arrested Aug. 28 on local charges, including rape,” an ICE statement reads.

Lewis also points out that the suspect is at least the eighth illegal alien charged with either rape or sexual abuse of a minor in Montgomery County, Maryland, since July 25.

Previous cases in Montgomery County include:

The trend has brought a great deal of unwanted attention to the Washington, D.C., suburb, which was quite proud of its sanctuary policies just a few months ago.

In response to the negative news coverage and attention in the wake of the charges, the county council put out a statement blaming “a lot inaccurate information spread by the White House, President Trump, Acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli, local and national conservative news outlets and neo-Nazi sympathizers.”

Cuccinelli responded to that statement by challenging county executive Ron Elrich to a debate on the merits of the county’s criminal justice and immigration enforcement policies.

“Sanctuary County, Montgomery County, MD cannot debate the failure of its sanctuary policies on the merits,” Cuccinelli said in a string of tweets last week, “so they resort to ad hominem attacks using nazi implications – arguments out of bounds in civil society.”

“If MontCo Chairman Elrich thinks the sanctuary policy they are so proud of is so good, I challenge him to a debate on the subject,” the immigration chief continued. “I’ll defend children and crime victims, Elrich can defend rapists and murders who shouldn’t even be in this country.”
