On February 5th the Facebook group “Repeal Sanctuary Status In Howard County, MD” reported:

Sanctuary County is one of the most controversial issues in Howard County history, and it represents a massive overreach by the county executive and council.

Our committee is meeting necessary requirements to ensure the citizens of Howard County, not politicians, have a say on sanctuary county laws.

Our campaign is preparing to submit over 11,000 petition signatures. Filing today’s signatures is but the first step in ensuring this issue is on the ballot in November 2022.
