Parent of Maryland high school student 'absolutely shocked' over alleged rape by immigrants

Illegal immigrant suspected in high school rape case; reaction on 'The First 100 Days'

 

The parent of a Maryland high school student said Tuesday she was "absolutely shocked" over an alleged rape of another student by two immigrants, at one here illegally, and that parents want to make sure how to prevent "these situations" in the future.

Kimberly Allman told Fox News' Martha MacCallum on "The First 100 Days" while she was troubled by the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl in the restroom at Rockville High School by the two male students, but was encouraged by what Republican Gov. Larry Hogan had to say. 

"Governor Hogan used words that I want to hear," she said. "He used the word illegal immigrants. He wanted to know why these men were here with our children."

The horrific attack last Thursday was allegedly carried out by an illegal immigrant, 18, and another 17-year-old student who were enrolled in the ninth grade.

District officials have said it is common for that school system to have adults with limited English speaking skills enrolled as freshman.

Allman said Hogan's response was better than the "washed down language we heard from the last administration."

"If we use our resources to move these children out, the illegal immigrants ,out of our school system and our communities, we'll have those resources to use in so many ways," Allman told MacCallum.
