One of the accused killers of New Jersey students was recently arrested in our county. An illegal immigrant with his violent arrest record should have been deported or kept in jail. New Jersey authorities set him loose and free to kill innocent people.
Since his arrest, New Jersey's Attorney General has changed that state's policy on handling of such violent criminals.
I wrote to our Attorney General Gansler's office and asked about their policy.
Their response is very, very disappointing. I certainly don't feel safer because Doug Gansler is in office.
Also, I don't understand the hypocrisy of our so-called law enforcement officials who refuse to protect from violent illegal aliens because "illegal aliens and immigration are federal laws," but don't hesitate to arrest African-Americans for minor drug offenses. Aren't drug laws also federal laws? Why such a blatant double standard.

Dear Ms. Russell,
Thank you for contacting the Office of the Attorney General. The Attorney General is the legal counsel for the State of Maryland and it's agencies. As such, this office provides legal advice and assistance to department heads, investigates and prosecutes crimes against the state. Matters regarding illegal aliens and immigration are federal laws and should be enforced in accordance with federal statute.

What is the Attorney General doing to protect us from violent criminals who are in the country illegally, such as the accused killer of students in New Jersey who was released by New Jersey officials and recently arrested in Oxon Hill?
Many jurisdictions in Maryland have a policy of allowing these criminals to prey on the innocent public. Are you going to continue to permit that?
