Instead of focusing on more immigration enforcement, Maryland Democrats are pushing for instate tuition to ensure that we attract more illegals. It's time that we pressure the members of the Maryland General Asylum to support Del. Pat McDonough's (R-Balt. County) three enforcement bill:
Miguel Angel Morales-Iraheta, 32, was ordered removed from the U.S. by an immigration judge on Oct. 1, 2007. He was taken to El Salvador on Feb. 27, 2009, after he finished serving prison time on a different criminal charge in Maryland, according to authorities, sources and court records.
When Morales-Iraheta was arrested in connection with Sunday's incident, his fingerprints came up as a match in Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Secure Communities program, which helps federal authorities identify illegal immigrants that are booked on local criminal charges, authorities said.
ICE spokesman Ross Feinstein said ICE has lodged a detainer on Morales-Iraheta, which means he will remain in federal custody after his local charges are adjudicated. He also faces an open warrant for first-degree rape in Montgomery County, authorities said.
HB 239- to require Corrections and Parole and Probation to forward information about a prisoner’s immigration status to ICE.
HB 276- to require state law enforcement agencies to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the federal government about enforcing federal immigration laws.
HB 342 - to prohibit a judge or district court commissioner from allowing defendants who cannot prove they are legally in the United States to be let out of jail on bail before trial.
Go here and demand that your legislator support real reform. Tell them to put Marylanders before El Salvadorans.
