BUILD THE WALL: Illegal immigrant accused of raping, impregnating non-verbal, special needs girl

Kensington, MD (Fox News) — An illegal immigrant in Maryland has been accused of raping a non-verbal special needs girl while he was supposed to be babysitting her at her home.

Reynaldo Mora, 41, was arrested April 19 in Montgomery County and charged with sex abuse of a minor, in addition to two counts of second-degree rape, according to WJLA.

Mora was reportedly babysitting the 13-year-old girl in February at her home in Kensington, where he allegedly forced the victim into having sex with him.

The girl, whom police said has the “intellect of a first grader” and can only communicate using “gestures and writing,” tested positive when she took a pregnancy test in April, the news outlet reported. Staff at a nearby medical center confirmed she was 11-weeks pregant.

Mora reportedly was held for seven weeks at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Clarksburg after a district court judge denied his bond.

In May, his defense attorney filed a “motion to reconsider bond,” and on June 1, Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Steven Salant granted Mora a personal recognizance bond, according to the station.

The personal recognizance bond would’ve allowed Mora to leave jail without putting up money under a deal that he’d appear at future court appearances. However, due to a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), local law enforcement surrendered him to federal officials on June 6.

Jose Campos, Mora’s defense attorney, told WJLA his client is innocent, and said Mora “willingly submitted to a DNA test and he is hopeful that this DNA test is going to clear everything.”

Results for a paternity test were still pending, according to the report.

Mora is scheduled to appear in Montgomery County Circuit Court in October for a three-day trial. He reportedly faces up to 60 years in prison.

‘HEY LIBERALS, BETTER GET YOUR GUNS!’: Pro-Trump billboard warns Dems of consequences if president is impeached

Huntingtown, Md. — A pro-Trump sign warning liberals of the wrath they will face if Trump should be impeached has liberals in one Maryland community up in arms.

The billboard, posted just off Route 4 in Huntingtown, Maryland, reads, “Hey liberals, better get your guns if you try to impeach President Trump.”

The bottom of the sign reads, “From all of your deplorables in Calvert County.”

The billboard, which was paid for by a local man who was asked by the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office to take it down due complaints received from the community, has since been taken down.

Captain Dave Payne of the Calvert Sheriff’s Office told The Baltimore Sun that his office had received multiple calls from mainly Democrats in the area who complained the sign was “offensive”. However, Payne said the sign also received a lot of positive response from the community.

“There’s two groups that are offended. We’ve received messages that say it’s offensive that it’s up,” Payne said. “While others say it’s offensive that he’s being pressured to take it down. We can’t win. We’re in the middle.”

Payne said this was not the first time the man put up pro-Trump messages on the billboard the past few years but this one has, by far, received the most attention.

“I love the billboard,” Michelle Rinker, a resident, told WJLA. “We’re conservative and there’s a lot of corruption that’s happened in this country and I don’t think it’s threatening.”

“If you attempt to take down a good president, there’s gonna be a problem,” Rinker added.

Another resident of the town, who asked not to be identified other than to say that she was a registered Democrat, said she and her son “fear” the sign.

“I hate that billboard,” she said. “I think it’s very threatening. I don’t like it at all.”

The signature on the sign which read “deplorables” relates to a controversial comment made by former DNC presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign in which she said Trump supporters and their fellow Republicans were “deplorable”.

The comment received a great deal of backlash from Conservatives and went on to play a key role in the outcome of the election.
