Frederick County (MD) Sheriff and Brian Murphy to hold Town Hall Meetings on Illegal immigration

The Brian Murphy for Governor campaign announced today the first in what is expected to be a series of statewide Town Hall Meetings to discuss the illegal immigration problem in a state many call a sanctuary state (forget sanctuary city!).

Crofton, Maryland — Today, Brian Murphy, Republican Candidate for Governor of Maryland, and Maryland illegal immigration stalwart, Frederick Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, announced their plans to conduct a statewide, townhall-style tour to address illegal immigration in Maryland.

Sheriff Jenkins has thrown his support behind Brian Murphy over primary opponent, Bob Ehrlich, because of Murphy’s commitment to curb illegal immigration when elected Governor. Murphy is the only candidate for Governor to support Arizona’s immigration law, known as SB 1070, in Maryland, and program 287(g), currently implemented by Jenkins.


“Chuck has taken leadership in addressing illegal immigration in Maryland. Under my administration, Chuck’s participation in 287(g) will be emulated across the state. I look forward to working together as we propose solutions to our shared problems,” said Murphy.

“[Through our participation in 287(g)] we have taken over 650 criminals off the street of Frederick County. They have committed crimes, and they are in this country illegally,” said Jenkins. “Brian has my full support. During Bob Ehrlich’s four years as Governor, he did not address illegal immigration.”

All voters are welcome to come and hear Murphy and Jenkins discuss this important issue facing Maryland. The first meeting will be held Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 7:00pm, at the American Legion located at 1450 Taney Avenue, Frederick, MD 21702-4336.

The Hagerstown Tea Party heard from Sheriff Jenkins on July 20th, here.


  1. Wonderful! Finally, some worthwhile debating and some candidates who have the courage to take a stand and address the issue! All I can say is that it’s about time!
