In the wake of the brutal rape of a 65-year-old woman in Portland, Ore., by an illegal alien drug addict, multiple media outlets have requested comments from Oregon public officials regarding their continued support for sanctuary state and sanctuary city policies. All of these requests have been blown off by elected officials.

First, it was reported by Kerry Picket at The Daily Caller that Ron Wyden, Oregon's Democratic senator, refused comment on the story:

Wyden refused to answer The Daily Caller’s questions about the illegal immigrant accused of raping a 65-year-old woman at her Portland home and assaulting another female in the area. Portland is a sanctuary city.

“We’ll have more to say about that another time. Today is about taxes,” Wyden said, before he veered off to discuss issues pertaining to the Russia investigation.

I reached out to the offices of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Oregon Governor Kate Brown. In the case of Brown, I left multiple voice mails with several of the press secretaries listed on her website. I also emailed. I told them that I was seeking comment from the governor's office regarding this case and inquiring whether they felt like recent policies strengthening Oregon's prohibitions against cooperating with ICE were partly responsible for Sergio Jose Hernandez being set loose in the Portland community. I advised that I wanted them to have an opportunity to address this situation for the column I was writing. Four voicemails and two emails over a 48 hour period
