The bid to promote sanctuary cities as welcoming homes for economy-boosting New Americans didn’t rate much coverage; however, seeing as it fell on the same day that the Montgomery County Public Schools finally held a press conference regarding last week’s horrific rape of a 14-year-old in a school restroom, it only seems right that someone should highlight New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s quote in particular:

Meanwhile, not that far away, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith was assuring the public that the school district has no knowledge of any student’s immigration status, by law does not collect it, and apparently likes it that way — that sort of information only comes out when, say, police arrest two freshmen, ages 17 and 18, as suspects in a horrific sexual assault.
