Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) last night appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss immigration enforcement and the horrific rape of a young girl at Rockville High School.

Chairman Goodlatte: “This is a totally preventable crime that occurred in Maryland and it happens all over the country and it happens very frequently. It is the result of sending the message to the world: you come to our border, we are going to release you in the interior of the country. This is now changing under this new administration.”

Background: Last week, Chairman Goodlatte sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly requesting information on the two suspects who allegedly raped a young girl at Rockville High School in Rockville, Maryland. Jose Montano, 17, from El Salvador, and Henry Sanchez-Milian, 18, from Guatemala, allegedly forced a 14-year-old female student into a restroom at her school and subsequently raped and sodomized her. DHS has confirmed to the House Judiciary Committee that both suspects entered the U.S. at the Rio Grande Valley sector last year as unaccompanied minors.
