5:09 pm
themselves. >> the portion of the state law that authorizes table games in maryland stipulates that 5 percent of the money generated is distributed to local jurisdictions where a facility is located. baker says, local jurisdiction refers to the county, in general. that's where the money is going. meanwhile, the local community still does get money from the slot machine revenues. >> they're going to have about $8 million just in the committee. that's a lot of money. we're estimate that we will get 33 million this year from mgm that will go to the county itself, which is why we're able to get more money to schools, hire more police officers, hire more firefighters, and the budget reflect that. >> it seems the confusion stems from the wording of the law, which is causing disagreement, even monkey electric the officials. reporting at the national harbor, alexandra lemone. >> straight ahead

5:17 pm
attention to this. which on one hands is a good thing, on the other hand, it leads, begs the question: why is this happening? i do have an update for you on one of those girls that you just mentioned, 17 year old cheria pain. there is a post on stain gram that fox5 received from a viewer, we've got a graphic of it for you there. and this girl posts, she claims to be this kheria pain currently missing by dc police. she said she is actually not, quote unquote, missing but that she ran away, has not been kidnapped. she ran away due to poor conditions and being mistreated at her foster care home. again she is 17 years old, i contacted dc police about that case. to make sure that they new about this instagram post. they are aware of it, they are working, however, to figure out where this girl is, because her whereabouts are still unknown. so we're going to ask them about that at this meeting this evening, and again there is meeting being put on by ward eight council member, trayon white. take a listen

5:32 pm
in this state, and i would go so far to sayirtually all of them in the nation do, they serve the students that walk in the door. that's based on the supreme court. >> that was montgomery county school superintendent jack smith, he was speaking yesterday at a press conference, responding to the intense backlash in questioning, how those two student accused of raping 14 year old in a school bathroom were allowed to even attend the school. one of them 17 years old, the other 18, both enrolled as freshman, both immigrants. >> central america. determined state cannot constitionally deny student free public education, on account of their immigration status, it is called plyerv dough, how it applies to montgomery county, virginia still delegate, mark, how flu. >> good, how are you? >> so let's talk about the first i heard of it yesterday, when he brought it up during the press conference. give us a sense, what's
5:33 pm
dough, asks the question whether the 14th amendment of the constitution, always have it with me, it says that no person shall be denied equal protection under the law. so certain right we have as citizens, certain right we have as persons. and since people that are here, whether documented or not are persons, they're allowed equal protection under the law. if the law requires all children under certain age be schooled, they're persons, they're schooled, as well. and in fact supreme court goes on to say that if we were to treat them unfairly, or differently, there would actually be consequences, not just for them but for society. but the heart of the issue is ' qual protection. >> came out after yesterday. we had a guest on who was staunchly opposed to the idea of having illegal students of illegal immigrants in schools period, what you're saying constitution that's just not possible? >> it is required. do you have treat everyone equally under the lawn. furthermore, really bad policy idea even if we were to consider amending the
5:34 pm
they're not here due to any fault of their own. vast majority of these kids come because their parent bring them over. we really shouldn't go to the bible. you shouldn't blame children for the since of their parents. in this case, to say we're going to leave them uneducated, lever them out in the street, not teach them english, that would actually cause a lot more crime i think. >> so i mean as we move forward with this, obviously, you know, the immigration story has become front and center in this, especially since the night before the maryland house of delegates passed what amounts to a sanction too area legislation, governor hogan says he wants no part of that, we're obviously going to follow that separately, two separate cases, i feel in this case some conflicting two says it comes to confluens of events. >> the whole notion of sanctuary cities really not the right identify see. what the idea is immigration officials focus on immigration law. state local officials focus on state and local law. not the job of your local school teacher to be an immigration official. in fact she or he is not very
5:35 pm
they're supposed to do. immigration should focus on immigration. i think that's really what they're doing. no one is breaking the law. because there is no requirement for a school teacher to act as an informant to the immigration authority. >> because that's one issue a lot of people are bringing up, saying okay, police, we go back to the whole sanctuary argument, police should be deposition ooh advertised to do work on behalf of immigration. saying apparently montgomery county why didn't the school officials do anything on this. >> i hope the federal government will pay us for all of that. if school officials are suddenly immigration officials they should be paid by the federal government. i think school should be focused on teaching. local police should be focused on crimes. if in fact if you want to stop a rape or you want to stop a violent crime in the community the worse thing to do is to depositionties local police officers as immigration officials, because the people going to stop this crime are witnesses. often from the same community. think of it undocumented immigrant who saw the crime take place. if he or she knows the police officers immigration official she'll never go to
5:36 pm
captured. perpetrator will never be captured. there will be string of crimes throughout the community. the best way to stop these crimes is to get the people of the community, the vast, vast, vast majority of lie abiding to witness and turn them n the iron is he undocumented immigrant can maple crimes at a far lesser rate than american citizens. so really, your focusing on this one, but, every day american citizens commit far far more crimes at far greater rate than the undocumented. >> in this casey would assume you might get the frustration after lot of people sake, focusing on that fact, okay, these student, immigration de pain err put or for one every them, seems to be what sparked the fire storm, whether or not it is a wide ranking issue or not. >> you know, if red headed person commits a rape, we could say if we could just keep all red headed people out of schools we could lessen rapes. but that doesn't make sense, because vast majority every red headed people aren't rape ills. same idea here. you can't in anyway say that because .0001% is doing something that suddenly
5:37 pm
should harm all undocumented immigrant. that's actually the nature of prejudice. >> i think in the grand scheme every things when you look at what happened in montgomery county, social media, you know social media goes all over the place, i think in the grand scheme of things we saw something very, very unfortunate. and tragic happen in maryland. and regardless of all of the other circumstances, we hope that the bus for that victim and the alleged victim and everybody else involved. >> absolutely. crime sun fortunate. tragedies ham. best way to catch criminals treat everyone with respect so people come forward and can be witnesses for those crimes. >> thanks for coming in tonight. appreciate it. sarah, back over to you. >> thanks, jim. president trump sat down for meeting with leaders of the congressional black caucus earlier today. fox5's political reporter ronica leary is live on capitol hill for interview, with congressman, anthony brown, who was inside that meeting with the president. ronica? >> reporter: hey, sarah. yes, we are here with congressman brown. we were chatting a little bit before we came to air. and one of the things that i was going to ask you about is the presi
5:38 pm
the campaign trail say to specifically to the african-american community what do you have to lose when it comes to voting for him. and i can't help but notice the tight many of what you say you gave the president today. tell me about this. >> well, first of all. >> it says? >> it says we have a lot to lose. and the congressional black caucus, our leadership team, went to the white house today to speak with president trump, to help answer the question he asked on the campaign trail to african-americans, what do you have to lose. so what we wanted to do really sort of educate him, on who the african-american community is, and, you know, where we live, and what our dreams, are our challenges, our needs, and our aspirations, and then we had an opportunity to layout some solutions. we talked about voting rights, civil rights. we talked about higher education, transportation, and infrastructure, and how we can meet the needs of empowering the african-american community in a number of areas. and we're very
5:39 pm
because, i mean, the president listened. and he offered to meet with us again. and at our request he agreed that he would make his cabinet secretary available. >> so you feel that he was receptive to your points. do you feel that these future meetings will happen? there was a lot of controversy about this meeting getting on the table. what do you think you do, you'll do, i read in your statement that you want to hold the president accountable to the promises and talks from today. tell me about that process? >> sure. so few weeks ago the president offered what we call a skinny budget. and in the budget there are some pretty dramatic cut that hurt, i think, the country, and particularly the african-american community, for example, there are cuts to the pell grant program. and large percentage of african-american students are able to attend college on a pell grant program. so we asked the president to restore funding to fully fund the pell grant program and to
5:40 pm
increase funding to historically black colleges, universities. so we'll hold the president accountable, as he's preparing his final budget that's he will's smith to congratulate err this, in the spring. >> all right, congressman, thank you so much for being with us, i know our viewers appreciate it. back to you. >> thank you, ronica. up next: politics and art. >> gary is live at the wilson building. >> normally you don't have this kind of thing at the wilson building. but we will jam. because politics and art, it is all about that. i'll come back, show you what we're doing here, muse sick not playing yet. but give it a few minutes. it will get real loud up in here. fox5 news continues. stay with us.
