As Twitchy reported Friday, two Rockville High School students in Rockville, Maryland, were arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl in a school bathroom. One of the accused, Henry E. Sanchez, 18, was the subject of a pending alien removal case and, despite his age, was enrolled as a ninth grader; José Montano, 17, was also in the ninth grade. Both are in custody and being charged as adults.

There were few answers, but a hell of a lot of questions, not the least of which was why the two were enrolled as ninth graders. County Executive Ike Leggett did release a statement Monday.

Leggett writes:

I was immediately sick and disgusted when it was reported that two young men raped a 14-year-old student at Rockville High School last Thursday. This should not happen. Period. My deepest condolences go out to this young girl and her family.

Thankfully, the alleged rapists were arrested by the police. Obviously, if convicted, these young men need to be severely punished for this heinous act, and I am confident that the justice system will do its job.

Although these individuals had no previous involvement in the County’s criminal justice system, these alleged rapists do have outstanding U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) orders. If convicted, and after serving their sentences, the County — consistent with our longstanding policy — will cooperate fully with ICE to see that the two are deported to their countries of origin.

What a relief to know that there’s at least one circumstance under which a municipal government will cooperate with “Trump’s henchmen” in ICE. But back to the questions:

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich also noticed the absence of a certain word from the county executive’s statement:

She also had questions for the district superintendent.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson also devoted time Monday night to the school district’s apparent lack of curiosity in the children (and adults) who make up the student body.
