Montgomery County Police has released a statement in response to President Trump’s tweets regarding immigration enforcement.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to follow up on a warning President Trump made earlier this week when he tweeted “Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in.”
The immigration enforcement efforts will occur in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, and San Francisco, and are intended to detain people from up to 2,000 families.
Today the Montgomery County Police Department released a statement on social media stating the following:
” In reference to President Trump’s recent tweets and media reports, the Montgomery County Department of Police will not participate with ICE regarding any immigration enforcement efforts next week or at any other time.
It is against our long-standing policy as this is a national issue and not a local issue. We have not received any requests from the federal government or ICE for their planned enforcement nor do we anticipate being informed as to their plans.
We value all of our residents and thank you for your concern.”
In nearby D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser said the city "remains a proud sanctuary city, and we are committed to protecting the rights of all our immigrant families in the face of these disturbing threats."

I went back and sharpened the skills I built at Putt-Putt in the 80s and 90s. The course was beautiful (there’s even a waterfall), and we enjoyed our time playing on the fun and challenging course.
Rates run from $5-$9 per person ($9 gets a non-Gaithersburg resident unlimited play for a day), so it’s an affordable option whether you’re going with friends, bringing the family, or taking a date.

The buzz has been building for weeks, but today we spoke with Janice who, along with daughter Ashley, have taken over the Clarksburg Bennigan’s location.
Janice told me that she has been running the restaurant for a few months now and that the official change will take place in about three weeks.
The Clarksburg Tavern will still have a similar menu that will include items like the Monte Cristo, but will also feature bar food, a 1lb ribeye, chops, salads, a shrimp cocktail, and a variety of daily specials.
Along with the change in name, you can expect the addition of a pool table or two, darts, and the availability of local beers.
True Food Kitchen, a health-focused restaurant chain with 23 locations in 10 U.S. states (most locations in California and Texas), will take over the old Joe’s Crab Shack location in Rio according to a tweet from Gaithersburg Councilmember Ryan Spiegel.
The restaurant focuses on serving healthy, seasonal, sustainable, and organic food with plenty of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.
This will be the second MoCo location, with the first being at 7100 Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda.
Their menu can be seen here.
