Frederick's mistaken obsession with immigration enforcement
A federal appellate court last week found fault with two Frederick County sheriff's deputies who arrested a Salvadoran woman on the basis of a civil immigration warrant, but county officials appear unbowed in their determination to act as adjunct border patrol agents. After discussing the case at their meeting Thursday, four of the five county commissioners voted to send a letter of support to the sheriff and his deputies, and Commissioners President Blaine Young pledged that county officials would continue to enforce immigration laws as much as possible in an effort to make Frederick the Maryland county that is "most unfriendly to illegal aliens."
