Thank you for the opportunity to speak here this evening. My name is Amie Hoeber, and I am a candidate for Congress in the 6th District of Maryland, which includes Frederick City and the southern part of Frederick County. If voters give me the privilege to represent them in Congress, I will take an oath of office next January which states in part that “….I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”
The politically diverse Sixth District stretches from the liberal Washington suburbs of Montgomery County to conservative Western Maryland. Democratic Rep. John Delaney won the district by less than two percentage points in the last midterm election, in 2014. Now Delaney is stepping down to run for president in 2020, and 14 candidates have filed to run in the primaries June 26.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hoeber Calls MD HB 1461 SAFE Act “One Step Closer to Making Maryland a Sanctuary State
Rockville, MD – Amie Hoeber, Candidate for Congress, issued the following statement: “I am appalled and outraged that Delegate Aruna Miller would support protecting criminals from further prosecution by supporting Maryland House Bill 1362 which is benignly being referred to as “The Safe Act.” Simply put, this bill is intended to offer shelter to those who are already in the criminal justice system – known criminals – and treating them on par with otherwise law abiding immigrants.”
