Our community's safety and well-being are best served if we leave immigration enforcement to the federal government. We do not benefit from the harassment and ethnic profiling that this policy seeks to force down our throats. Rockville should be a sanctuary city in solidarity with the many communities around the nation who have courageously chosen this path.

Sanctuary is consistent with the law of the land. It is the right thing to do.

Immigrants are an important part of Montgomery County and the City of Rockville, both economically and socially. Deporting someone for wanting a better life is absurd, and, when the United States looks back on its xenophobic policies 50 years from now, I want to be able to say that I was not a part of the problem, but the resistance to that problem.

I am signing this because I want to protect illegal imigrants that rape and murder our innocent children. This definitely makes sense!

This is a nation of immigrants, and we are the foundation of this wonderful nation. This is something that those including a German that came here illegally is now against having illegal students in Rockville schools, the audacity of these people that came here illegally are now against these poor humans that the only crime they have is to cross the border illegally to look for a better and safer life and now a German immigrant who came here in the 50s for all we know she could be a Neo Nazi who escaped Germany pretending to a prosecuted one and now no wonder she is opposing illegals in schools in Rockville. Its very sad that someone like this is on fox news demanding this people be deported, it's very sad. I don't even know the name of this rat because when I tuned in the news that segment was almost over and did not catch her name or she she would be noted here.
