Tuition breaks for illegal immigrants goes to gov

Both the Maryland Senate and the House of Delegates agreed on a compromise plan to extend in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, sending the controversial legislation to the governor's desk.

Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he will sign the bill. Cheers erupted from undocumented students sitting in the House galleries when delegates cast their final votes. The bill passed the House on a vote of 74 to 65, a preliminary tally shows.

The House move came about an hour after the Senate passed the compromise 27 to 19.

The measure allows undocumented students who've attended three years of Maryland high school to qualify for discounted tuition at state universities and colleges.

The compromise measure requires male students to sign up for selective service. Also the undocumented students will not count against the requirement that 70 percent of students are Maryland residents. Students will be able to start their higher education in Fall 2011.

The bill also tightens requirements that students or their parents pay taxes: They must show that income taxes were withheld for three years prior to starting. The House-Senate committee removed an amendment added by Del. Luiz Simmons that loosened the tax paying requirement.

Gutless wonders will pay come election time. But we need to get this to a referendum firts.

This is good for everyone. Good for the young people who can attend college, good for Maryland's economy, good for our civil society, and good for our souls.

Skippy, they won't pay for this. Consider that this is MD, and the liberals throughout this state will continue to support these left-wing politicians... and then the voters will wonder why there are so many problems.

want to know what's wrong with this country?? THIS.

I HATE THIS STATE. MY OWN LEGAL KIDS CANT EVEN AFFORD COLLEGE OR GET INTO COLLEGE...AND THIS IS GOING TO COME OUT OF OUR TAX PAYING POCKETS!! I CANT WAIT TO MOVE AWAY FROM THIS HELL WHOLE TAXING STATE WHEN I GET THE MONEY.

This state legislature literally sickens me. It is truly time to get out of this tax happy, illigal alien state and hopefully move to a place where legislative sanity is more in order. Move forward Maryland to your ever loving detriment.

Please post the names of the idiots who voted for this abomination so we can vote their butts out!

How fair is this? I can't afford college, I live and work in this state legally, pay my taxes. How come I can't get a discount?

The criminals won.

Why should the rest of us follow any laws now?

Next time that I'm selected for a jury, I'll find the defendant "not guilty" no matter what.

Marylanders who voted for O'Malley and his cronies are getting what they deserve. Bob would have vetoed this again. I'm outta here to Tennessee just as soon as I can retire. So long suckers.

Skippy u moron idiot ur obviously an illegal alian. I hope u get deported than I would laugh u stupid FUC*..i hate all of the illegal alians like hispanics that breed like rats..we will all pay for this out of our pockets!!

Everyone will forget this even happened come election time and vote the same jerks back in office year after year after year. I am at a loss of words.rea

I don't understand how somebody comments saying this is good at all. What has this state, this country come to? They are ILLEGAL immigrants and I stress the word ILLEGAL! They do not belong in this country so I don't understand how you can give them in state tuition if they DON'T BELONG HERE?! Hopefully this is a plan to get them to the school and then ship then deport them all out to their country, but I doubt it.

Unbelievable ... can our legislators really be this disconnected from the reality of what the taxpayers want?

It amuses that the only people who comment on these articles are the enraged.

Continue to wallow in your misery while people who were in no position to make life decisions aren't senselessly punished.

Next will be financial aid for the illegal students - just like in Calif.

Anyone who suppported this Bill has committed treason and is a traitor. Traitors should be arrested, tired, and if found quilty, serve their time.

First of all, Whoopie, if you live and work in this state, you already get the same in-state tuition. Second, you will note the requirement that the families of these students have to have paid taxes. Third, these kids were not the ones who chose to come here. Do you really wish to visit the sins of the fathers on them? Fourth, as passed, the bill ensures that they will not displace any other Maryland students. And, finally, which would you rather have: educated people who will pay more taxes or kids condemned to low-wage jobs who will cannot contribute to our state and pay more taxes? Stop hating and think, people.

I find it amazing that the politicians of this state do not grasp the concept of "illegal." For hard working tax payer who has seen my taxes spin out of control....this sickens me. The majority of Marylanders do not want this so, someone please explain how these polititicans are the voice of the people. Illegals do not contribute to the financial wellbeing of this state due to not paying taxes. Why am I paying for someone that is here illegally? I am sick of it.

This country has given generations of my immigrant ancestors from all over Europe a chance - and now it's time for us to do the same for the most recent arrivals.

We are a country of immigrants - the innovation and hard work we learned from our own immigrant grandparents and great grandparents is what makes America great. Let's keep up the tradition!

Way to go, MD legislature. Next step - comprehensive federal immigration reform.

I was born in Md. and went to school mostly in the city. Since the media and legislature are liberal, that's all you hear is their version of the news. Not until I moved to Virginia did I hear the truth. The democrats are not for you. They just want the votes from minorities. Their policies just keep them in poverty. I'm glad I don't live there anymore.

This act will NOT keep US citizen kids from going to college! Citizens and residents get federal loans - these kids will not.

Would you rather see kids drop out and join gangs or go to college and pay income taxes? Even if you don't care about the kids, the state benefits from their education.

To Terry: I`ll tell you what I want. Round up these sons and daughters of rat like breeding illegal alien scum and send them back to wherever they came from. Let them pay their own way at the University of Mexico, or Guatumala. I don`t want to educate them on my dime.

Sometimes I feel like I'm living in Bizarro World.far

This is like a bad movie! What is our state doing??? AGAIN, promoting more illegal immigration. And they only have to have paid taxes for 3 years prior??? WHAT!!?? So you are telling future illegals to just pretend to be legal for 3 years before you want discounts, not the rest of the time you have already been contaminating and imploding our economy!! Politics is such B.S.!!!

Citizens Of Maryland.

As I write this post I have just learned that the Maryland Senate has avoided a filibuster of this legislation and it has passed both The House and Senate awaiting only Martin O'Malley's signature for passage.

We as Voting,Taxpaying,Legal Citizens of Maryland must now attempt to save our state by going door to door and having a petition signed to put this travesty on referendum.

This is the Only Way We as Marylanders can Unite to show the Pandering Criminals in the General Assembly that We Mean Business and to try and save what is left of Our State.

I Urge You to contact Brad Botwin at Help Save Maryland to recommend this idea to him.

Thank You.
God Bless America.
God Bless Our Troops.

Here is the interesting note. We are supposedly educating these illegal aliens so they will be able to hold more productive jobs in MD. Technically, they are not able to hold a job in MD (or anywhere in the US) without having a green card or being a US citizen. So what is the financial benefit for my tax dollar investment?

If you don't like the federal immigration laws and think the law should allow anyone who can make it here to be a citizen without any controls, then work to change the law. Don't just ignore it. This law is a travesty.

This is why a peaceful revoltion is in order. American citizens should just all stop paying taxes starting now! Redo your W-4 with your employer claim SEVERAL dependants and no Federal tax will be taken out of your check, only ss and medicare tax will. your money stays in your pocket to do with as you please all year. Come tax time JUST DON"T FILE! They cant take us all down at once for doing it. What say? April 15th 2012?

Ugh! I wish people would actually read the da*m bill before posting their uninformed comments... These kids - our kids - will not be getting a better rate than Maryland citizens - they will simply be paying the same in-state tuition amount instead of having to pay out-of-state tuition. This is the reality (since so many you are living in la la land) - these kids aren'y going anywhere. So, stop your whining and be thankful that our legislators support these kids going to college, educating themselves and being productive contributing citizens in the State. Would you prefer they do absolutely nothing with themselves??? I must say, as a Latina American citizen, the racist and ignorant BS in some of these comments is beyond disturbing. But that's okay - drive yourselves crazy because we aren't going anywhere...

You people cannot say that all illegal immigrants don't pay taxes. There are many that pay taxes and follow the rules. Yes they may be illegals but they are lawful citizens! In state tuition does not mean that they get government aid. Get your facts straight!

70% are in-state or 30% or more are in-state? I thought it was the latter.

Givemeabreak-learn a little bit about American history. Those immigrants were legal, not O'Malley's New Americans. And Connie, I would surely love to know where these poor students are going to get $8600 per year for tuition at UMCP? Annapolis thinks that the taxpayers won't notice or remember their actions. We do remember & will work against your progressive agenda.

So a legal resident of Delaware has to pay out of state tuition, but an illegal immigrant of the U.S. gets in-state tuition? That's incredible.

I don't agree with this legislation at all. Not at all. I'm all for education, but here's there are so many problems associated with this bill; it will encourage more immigration illegally, it undercuts the steps that legal immigrants have taken to obtain the same goals and so many other issues.
Here's the reality its not just Hispanics its a large amount of Africans and Middle Easterners.
Am I racist? Not at all...I am for fairness. It was just one generation ago that public schools were integrated for African Americans and look at the trials, sits-in and legislation that finally came after so many died during the establishment of this Country.

to all the morons who say "dont hate on the kids, it wasnt their choice" and "this is good becaue we will get more income tax" you are all morons. At the age of 18 these criminals are supposed to leave this country and return to their birth country so they can follow the proper procedures to come here legally, so yes i say we should villify these criminals,they are no longer helpless children. As far as income tax goes, their education is a waste, as was their education in public schools. It is illegal to hire these people so how will the state benefit from their income taxes when they cannot work here? I hope a suit is filed by an out of state student and it gets this illegal bill overturned.

to the moron who spoke of generations of immigrants being supported and now its time for this generation of immigrants; there is a big difference, your ancestors and my ancestors came here legally, these people just hop a border and feel entitled to stay. round em up and ship them out, too bad we cant shoot on sight at the border

this is absolute bs. why should illegal immigrants be given an education at a discounted rate while most people here LEGALLY struggle to afford it? if you want to go to school in maryland, you should come here legally, just like all the other students. way to go maryland.

caroline; illegal and lawful are opposites. if you are illegal you cannot be a lawful citizen.
HotArdienteBoricua; are you serious? Let me explain something to you criminal, your child is also a criminal. they may get an education but nobody in this country can legally hire them. instead of wasting your effort on bills like this how about you apply for citizenship? If you dont like our laws go home, we dont want you here. This is not racist this is a desire to save our country from your invading hordes.

The bill makes the O'Mouhty WELCOME MATT for his New ØmeriKans look even that much larger.

How can ILLEGALS be lawful citizens? How have they gotten a green card and paying taxes if they are ILLEGAL? Not quite understanding this?

Yes they may be illegals but they are lawful citizens!

An immigrant cannot be a lawful citizen Caroline if he/she comes to America illegally.
Those who enter America through proper channels and then follow the procedures to become naturalized American citizens are always welcome here. You dont enter a person's house through the back door, you knock on the front door.

I LOVE this! Anything that drives the Teabagging right wingers crazy has GOT to be a good thing. Face it - these people live here now. At least make it easier for them to get an education! Or would you 'Baggers prefer that we spend BILLIONS upon BILLIONS "rounding these people up" and floating them back to Mexico? Seems to make more sense to simply educate them and try to make them a functioning part of society!

Why did I work all my life and take care of myself and my family? Now I must take care of the families of people who are not even citizens!
The voters in MD never learn as they put these people back in office time and time again, no matter what they give away and spend!

richinbmore; I dont know how many times i have to say this but here i go again. educating them is a waste of time, THEY CANNOT BE HIRED BY ANY EMPLOYER LEGALLY BECAUSE THEY ARE HERE ILLEGALLY, SO ALL OF THE MONEY SPEND WHILE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS WAS A WASTE AND LETTING THEM PAY IN-STATE RATES IS ALSO A WASTE. iT MAKES MORE SENSE TO ROUND THEM UP AND SEND THEM HOME, THE COUNTRY WILL BE BETTER FOR IT BOTH IN SAFETY AND IN ECONOMICS

Ah, Maryland, cradle of graft. I will soon be living in Virginia. And all of you who salute the sheer stupidity of the Maryland Dems will be harvesting your organs to pay taxes. Business is fleeing Maryland. You cannot save it.

With all of the problems facing the country/state, the best they could do is boost the booze tax 50% and reward illegal immigrants.

I live in the new ghetto, Montgomery County, Gaithersburg to be specific. Lived here for 35 years. It has been slowing slipping in life quality, but now it is in free fall. I cannot find a single elected official who has an IQ over 25.

Good by, Maryland, and good riddance.

Maryland needs to stop being a 'safe haven' for ILLEGALS. Their are 39 other states that just applauded this, as they know we will foot more of the burden as illegals flock to MD.

In 20 years the Hispanic vote will take over and you will see a new demographic in the state legislature. One that passes more and more public service bills to that illegal constituent group. At some point their tuition will probably be free!

I also find it very ironic that on the same day as they raise the "Send us all your illegals" flag, they also raise the alcohol tax.

This is good for everyone. Good for the young people who can attend college, good for Maryland's economy, good for our civil society, and good for our souls.

Really, Dennis. Wonder if illegal aliens will think that 4 years from now when they've graduated and still can't get jobs any better than the ones they can get now. Wanna bet that we'll be seeing more stories about poor illegal aliens who got college degrees and are now babysitting because they can't get a job that requires legal status? Think most Americans are going to be sympathetic when they themselvers, or their kids, don't have jobs either?

Federal law requires that Maryland offer in-state tuition to ALL Americans, regardless of residency, if it offers it to illegal aliens. Maryland's act is unfair to American students from other states.
Furthermore, these kids are going to be some of the best educated baby sitters and landscapers around because WE AMERICANS are not going to legalize them. You support your ethnic group, Latinos, and I'll support mine, Americans.

This act will NOT keep US citizen kids from going to college! Citizens and residents get federal loans - these kids will not.

Would you rather see kids drop out and join gangs or go to college and pay income taxes? Even if you don't care about the kids, the state benefits from their education.

Marlene, how do you think these kids will be paying income taxes when they still can't legally work? The only thing they'll be "paying" taxes on is babysitting or landscaping jobs.

Get YOUR facts straight, caroline. An illegal alien cannot be a lawful citizen of this country. Illegal aliens are liars, cheats and line jumpers. They cannot be legal residents of the State of Maryland if they're not legal residents of the United States.
Note also that getting in-state tuition gets them nothing in terms of a legal right to work in this country. Four years from now, all they'll be is illegal aliens with a college degree--and the same jobs they can get now as illegal aliens.
Unless of course they choose to return to their home countries.

See if "education" is what these illegal aliens care about. What they care about are JOBS--and they'll still be illegal with a college degree and unable to do any jobs other than those they can already get.

As for "rounding them up", what we do need to do is stop offering them incentives such as this to stay and make eVerify mandatory to dry up even the low level jobs they now do.

By the way, they can use their educations back in their home countries to make those countries "function".

And, for the record, I'm a lifelong labor DEMOCRAT who opposes amnesty, as does my blue collar brother who's married to a Mexican American.

To the ignorant person who said immigrants are like breeding rats: You DISGUST ME!
Please READ the bill before you comment because some ppl are just making fools out of themselves...have you seen the requirement that their parents have to have paid taxes for at least 3 years in MD? How is that supporting ppl who DO NOT pay taxes??
Another ignorant comment: Illegal Immigrants do not contribute to the economy...
here is a reality check for you ppl: who are the constructions workers? Who are the cleaning ladies? Who are the ppl that get abused in low paying jobs that are a big part of keeping this economy running? : Undocumented Immigrants.
So its easy to say just deport them. The politics in this country are set up so that these pp are able to come,the country uses them for their cheap labor and then when its time to give back ppl say things like this: "round them up and send them back". We have seen how the economy of some counties collapsed after most of the undocumented immigrants left...how can you then say they do not contribute to economy?!
Its really crazy to me how ppl can comment all of those hateful words in this day and age. I feel like we should have learned our lesson about racim...guess not here...sad.

-----------So, just how much in taxes is a low-wage illegal alien going to "pay" in taxes? And under whose identity? You can bet it will come nowhere near to covering the cost of the services he and his family have used and will use, especially with in-state tuition.

Another ignorant comment: Illegal Immigrants do not contribute to the economy...

-------No, they're lying cheating illegal aliens who commit fraud to get jobs that they displace Americans from Most construction workers are AMERICANs according to a study by the Pew Hispanic Center. And look at the Americans who are working alongside illegal aliens at companies such as Chipotle. Illegal aliens do NOT add to our economy--they displace Americans.

So its easy to say just deport them. The politics in this country are set up so that these pp are able to come,the country uses them for their cheap labor and then when its time to give back ppl say things like this: "round them up and send them back".
-----------No, Americans in general did not lure illegal aliens here and do not want them here. Special interests did, to the detriment of Americans as a whole.

We have seen how the economy of some counties collapsed after most of the undocumented immigrants left...how can you then say they do not contribute to economy?!
------------What counties? For that matter take a look at illegal alien heavy California. It's on the verge of collapse. good proof illegal aliens do NOT "contribute" to the economy, but take more than they give.

Its really crazy to me how ppl can comment all of those hateful words in this day and age. I feel like we should have learned our lesson about racim...guess not here...sad.
-----People who lie, cheat, commit fraud, and break other laws do not deserve our respect or consideration. Try cutting in line at a concert or sporting event sometime and see how eager people are NOT to let you get away with it.

Good for them. I can soon see this to pass. We are one step ahead.

How dare the Maryland government! They've got no business assisting anyone who decided to better themselves and become dues-paying responsible members of society.

One step ahead to what? Getting an expensive education that you won't be able to use to get a job here? See Daniel Rubin's column on Philly.com about a 23-year-old illegal alien college ad who's now supporting herself by babysitting. THAT's what's ahead for you.

And what part of ILLEGAL are we missing?! Would any other country do this for an American citizen?

UNBELEIVABLE! EVERY MEMBER OF THE LEGISLATURE AND THE GOVERNOR SHOULD BE EXECUTED!

WHY ARE ENCOURAGING THESE SOCIAL PARASITES!

MARYLANDERS NEED TO STAGE A REVOLUTION ...RISE UP AND DESTROY THESE SCUMBAGS...BOTH POITICIANS AND ILLEGALS!

I am still shaking my head. People - US CITIZENS - that are here pay higher tuition rates if they are from PA that illegals (oh wait, undocumented). Don't care that they were kids when they came into the US... go thru the process that my relatives (to including their kids) HAD to go thru to live here.

SORRY... NO SYMPATHY FOR THE ILLEGAL KIDS... YOU WANT TO LIVE HERE, GO THROUGH THE PROCESS TO LIVE HERE LEGALLY...

BTW, knowing the parents are illegal, now they will get immediately DEPORTED, right???

How dare the Maryland government! They've got no business assisting anyone who decided to better themselves and become dues-paying responsible members of society.

Point is, it's NOT up to Maryland who is admitted to the U.S. and this society. That's the FEDERAL government's responsibility. Maryland has no authority whatsoever to legalize illegal aliens or grant them the right to stay here.

In choosing to break our laws for joining this society, illegal aliens put themselves squarely outside of it, whatever you or they might like to think.
Get a college education and you'll still be an illegal alien law breaker, albeit an educated one.

Unbelievable. Yes, I understand that many (if not most) illegal immigrants support themselves *and* do the jobs nobody else wants. And no, illegal immigrants aren't going anywhere.

Why would they? When they get education benefits of legal citizens, are allowed food stamps/WIC, and can receive many other types of state and Federal support. I wouldn't leave the USA either!

What upsets me is that there are *thousands* of people that do the right thing, that try their hardest to get into this country legally. They follow the rules, and have to wait. They have to leave the country -- and do -- when visas or job contracts expire. Where are the Democrats for these people? Where are their help?

I'm a lifelong resident of Montgomery County, and I'm sick of all this. O'Malley signs this bill? I'll be voting against him come election time. And it'll be the first time I've voted against a Democrat in the over 20 years I've been voting.

So far so good!!.
Bummer about the Wind energy issue.

Ali,
Somewhere up there the Murdered spirits of Native Americans are listening to clowns like you and saying..WTF?

Hey Hittheroadjose - Clearly you don't read well. I am citizen thank you very much. Not a criminal - no sirreee... I am Puerto Rican sweetheart, a U.S. territory but I wouldn't expect your ignorant as* to know that... So, I am a legal U.S. citizen just like you. What a waste that someone as ignorant and uneducated as you has the privilege of being a U.S. citizen when there are much better representatives out there... Go ahead, keep whining, keep complaining and keep hatin'... It rolls off my back. Deuces!

Guess who did a lot of that "murdering"? The Spanish. I'd say that Native Americans would be cheering us on, remembering what the Spanish did to them, and are still doing to them, not only here but in Latin America. Fact is, we learn from the mistakes of Native Americans. They should have sent Pedro Menéndez de Avilés right back to Spain.

I wouldn't bet on either of the above.
--30% of welfare recipients in California, which has the largest number of them, live in households headed by illegal aliens. They do NOT support themselves.
--ICE didn't do audits of Chipotle in Maryland, but where it has, it's found illegal aliens working alongside Americans under stolen or fake SS numbers. Illegal aliens do the jobs Americans will do and are doing.
--- Obama deported about 400,000 illegal aliens last year, and that's even with him trying not to. Wonder what would happen if we had a President who actually believed in his oath of office?

Hittheroadjose - are you serious??? There is nothing you need to explain to me but let me explain some things to you... I am no criminal - nope. I am U.S. citizen just like you. Clearly you don't read well or you would have seen that in my post. Boricua means Puerto Rican, you know that lovely U.S. territory in the Caribbean. Well, believe it or not, we are U.S. citizens... Enlightening, huh? How sad that you are a U.S. citizen when there are so many others that would do a much better job with that privilege. And if you don't like the laws, why don't you leave? Latinos were here long before your ancestors... Why don't you look that up? Ignorant...

CITIZENS! IT'S INCOMPREHENSIBLE THAT TRAITORS IN OUR COUNTRY, WOULD PLACE A FOREIGN COUNTRIES RIGHTS FIRST? THIS IS A VIOLATION OF OUR SOVEREIGNTY RIGHTS, BY THE ACTIVIST JUDGES OF THE 9TH CIRCUIT COURT

Very few State lawmakers understand the massive financial implications, for not serving the wishes of citizens and legal residents. Utah specifically is a relatively newcomer to the economic effects of illegal immigration as it’s not a frontier State. Thousands of economic illegal migrants and immigrants, who have already exhausted millions of dollars from the suffering State of Arizona, will be looking desperately for another State to drain. The Mormon State has essentially failed its population, with offering a unconstitutional Guest Worker program and other benefits, will soon learn their mistake as foreigners will sweep across the State line.

A repeat performance as in the Sanctuary States of California and Nevada, the schools will be swarmed by the progeny of illegal aliens and US children will get less attention from overtaxed teachers. The Utah school system will have to hire more bilingual teachers, demanding more money from taxpayers. Court procedure will need more interpreters, as the criminal aliens arrive to decimate the State. Further to this, higher education scholarships should go to Citizens-residents. If we keep giving education of in-state tuition to illegal alien student children, it will send the message throughout the world, that this soft country will school YOU. The hospitals will be raided next with minor afflictions and major illnesses, as the illegal Guest workers will inundate emergency rooms and their uninsured family members. Illegal females tend to have large clutches of newborns, with one to be conceived; to be paid for by hard working Americans. It's a fact that the majority of businesses that hire guest workers pay nothing towards their health care or the young children's education. Georgia on the other hand obviously convinced of the perils of giving into open border lobbyists and radical groups will inspire other States to enact harsher laws.

Although most harsh Georgia laws were sucked dry by, pro business interference, causing uproar amongst citizens and residence, specifically as they tried to hide their cowardice by unrecorded vote. All of these politicians that “ on the take” will be intently remembered, when they come-up for re-election Massachusetts although not fully enacting laws similar to Arizona has brought some saneness to its people.

THE UNITED STATES HAVING BEEN INVADED BY ILLEGALS, WITH THOSE IN POWER HAVING IGNORED THE FINANCIAL CONSEQUENCES IN OUR FUTURE; NOR HAS IT SLOWED? American citizens and residents must impose a mandatory E-Verify Nationwide, to enforce attrition and stop this immigration travesty. We must throw out all the conspirators who are in collusion with Mexico's President Calderon, including the 9th Circuit Court or any other potentate who uses the United States as a pressure valve from their degrading mismanagement and corruption, by exporting their desperate and poverty to our country. Also be aware illegal aliens are voting in our elections, but are not being sentenced to prison for this fraud and a danger to our slipping democracy.

What most prudent people are asking is why do foreign corrupt governments have a right to interfere in American immigration politics? This is according to the 9th circuit hidden away in the Liberal-Democratic Sanctuary City of San Francisco, where the prosecutors released illegal alien gang-member Ramos, to slaughter a family of three leaving a mourning Mother?

The United States is sinking deeper into fiscal quicksand, with a 14 trillion dollar deficit that is climbing ever faster. We cannot afford to sustain the rest of poverty stricken governments, who dump their indigent people in our laps. We must cut back on foreign aid stop policing the rest of the world. The wars in the Middle East are depleting our own people's welfare, the futures for our own grandchildren.

The war is at our open borders and we must halt the smuggling of drugs, people and criminals that are killing innocent Americans wholesale, nationwide. This country is importing contagious diseases, which have spread quietly and not uttered by the government; but carefully concealed. Other States has signed on to federal law of Secure Communities to fingerprint and remove criminal aliens from their jurisdictions Arizona is steadfast in its immigration policing laws and although dealt a blow by the Liberal judges in the ninth circuit court of appeals is resolute on its journey to the Supreme court, to defend its constitutional rights of its populace. Our only chance for survival is the growing extension of the TEA PARTY, as it moves apart from the Republican elites. The Tea Party is ready to face the battle lines being drawn in the forthcoming 2012 budget war. Join now and be part of the sane movement, to end the facade that is the illegal immigration occupation of our country. Find the facts not lies at the pro-sovereignty web pages of NumbersUSA. In addition the TEA PARTY will abruptly end special no-tax privileges to corporations like General Electric.

Thousands of corporations are using foreign havens to hide millions, perhaps billions of dollars in foreign countries, thanks to the tax breaks given to these entities by political parties, from lobbyists filtering secret brown-bag cash and large campaign contributions. We need more leaders like Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Michele Bachmann, Rep. Anthony Weiner with the fury to do the right things for this ailing country. Cut out illegal immigration and we will save hundreds of billions in federal and State entitlements. While Americans get ready to file these tax returns, shareholders in these mega corporations receive benefits the average man can only imagine. We must stop this rot in the tax code so every corporation; business must pay its fair share. Remember the TEA PARTY is your revenge on the unfair laws that govern us. They are the only retribution we have against the rot in our own government.

CALL UP YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR, STATE OR FEDERAL AND PRESS THEM TO ENACT STRINGENT IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW OR THEY WILL BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE.

HotArdienteBoricua, you wrote the following " Yes they may be illegals but they are lawful citizens! In state tuition does not mean that they get government aid. Get your facts straight!"

They may be illegals. But they are lawful citizens? Citizens of where? They are illegally in the USA, hence they certainly aren't citizens. So, YOU, please get your facts straight. You don't seem overly intelligent. Also notice how the folks of German, Slavic, Indian, Chinese, Nordic, et al, decent don't use their native tongues on these boards? How about you have a little respect for the country you claim you are a citizen of. English. Learn my parent's language and I'll learn yours. Otherwise we can all speak Enlish, just like EVERY OTHER IMMIGRANT GROUP EXCEPT LATINOS HAS DONE.

It saddens me to read most of the comments here. We are talking about children who have gone to Maryland schools. It's disappointing that a few disgruntled Marylanders active in the comments section here cannot see past their own bigotry to the reasonableness of this legislation.
