Cops dragged Graham away from the entrance, demanded ID from him. Held him for 15 to 30 minutes.

From Michael Graham's WMAL radio webpage...


For some reason, a group of pro-illegal immigration activists and their pals jumped me when I showed up for their rally. I think I look rather fetching, actually.


DO THESE LOOK LIKE "MONTGOMERY COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS SECURITY GUARDS" TO YOU?


That's how the gentleman on the right identified himself to me at the illegals rally. (Obviously the guy on the far left is a MoCo cop. The other two refused to ID themselves in any way.) The large, black gentleman on the left and the short, tattooed gentleman on the right were two of the five or so people who jumped me. This photo was taken afterwards. Notice that they're smiling. THEY were never detained or questioned. Also notice they have no identification: No badges, no nametags. Do they really work for Montgomery County Public Schools? If they do, why did they stop me from entering a public event? Why did they refuse to identify themselves at the event? And why did they jump me on behalf of Casa de Maryland?


WELCOME, AMERICA! I've been getting emails all weekend from across the country as Americans express their concerns over illegal immigration and how I was treated at the pro-illegal immigration rally. Many say they're listening over the internet, which is very easy to do. Try it yourself!

Meanwhile, we have a great show lined up for today: Michelle Malkin, a witness to my detainment by the police; I hope to have a spokesperson from Casa de Maryland and from the MoCo Police Department to explain what happened at the rally; and perhaps someone from MoCo schools to confirm that I was, in fact, detained by their officials.

Graham took a few phone calls from listeners. More to come after the news on the half-hour.
