Over the course of a month, five illegal aliens were arrested on sexual assault charges in Montgomery County, Maryland.
The fifth arrest this month is the father of ten, 46-year-old El Salvadorian national Nelson Reyes-Medrano, who was charged recently with raping a 16-year-old Maryland girl.
It’s reported the alleged sexual assault occurred last August.
The Daily Caller reports:
Nelson Reyes-Medrano, 46, was charged and arrested for rape earlier this month following allegations that he crawled into the bed of a 16-year-old girl and raped her at knifepoint, according to a police report.
NEW: Nelson Reyes-Medrano is accused of crawling into bed with a 16yo Germantown, Md. girl as she napped. The 46yo proceeded to rape the teen at knifepoint, police say.

Although a detainer has been placed on Reyes-Medrano, Maryland County agencies are prohibited from cooperating with ICE agents, including inquiring about residency status.
That’s because Montgomery County is a sanctuary county.
County Executive Mark Elrich recently authorized an executive order banning U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents (ICE) from gaining access to secure spaces in county jails when illegal aliens are released by the police.
ICE agents must obtain custody of illegal aliens in unsecured areas, jeopardizing their safety and the safety of those around them during the process.
Montgomery County’s sanctuary policies are enabling criminals and putting innocent citizens, especially children, in harm’s way.
