MCCRC proposes model county ordinances defending *everyone’s* rights and civil liberties

Across Morental-ordinance-292x300ntgomery County, people are ready to challenge President-elect Trump’s worst proposals that target our most vulnerable neighbors. Montgomery County is a “sanctuary” county, which means our county police will play no role in enforcing federal immigration law, and that is significant. But the county can go much further than that, and pass local ordinances to prohibit or limit law enforcement engagement in:

  • discriminatory profiling
  • intelligence-sharing with federal authorities
  • undercover infiltration of activist groups and religious institutions
  • cooperation with military personnel
  • over-policing or restricting protests
  • prying into social media accounts

MCCRC will work with allies in the county to customize the model legislative proposals below, drafted by the Bill of Rights Defense Committee/Defending Dissent Foundation. For annotated, linkable views of each ordinance and its sections, visit either of our web site pages:
