In a sane world, members of Maryland's General Assembly and Senate would be frog marched out of Annapolis and sent straight to prison. The very people who swore to uphold the law are now subverting it by purloining public funds for the use of illegal aliens. Last night, the Senate voted 27-20 to grant in-state tuition to illegal aliens. At a time when they are levying egregious taxes on the citizens of Maryland in order to solve a self inflicted budget shortfall, they are stealing more funds and earmarking them for lawbreakers.
According to a study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, illegal aliens cost Maryland a total of $1.7 billion annually. This is not including the cost of the new proposed legislation granting them in-state tuition. That is roughly commensurate to the entire structural deficit for the coming fiscal year.
This illegal bill now moves to the Hoouse where it will be voted on in the Ways and Means Committee. Please email the members of the committee and tell them to represent Marylanders, not illegal aliens. Here are the emails of the two leaders of the Ways and Means Committee.
