Here is Ron Miller writing at Southern Maryland Online earlier this week. The Dream Act will be one more enticement for illegal aliens to come to Maryland, use our services and out-compete our citizen workers for jobs.
This is bad legislation on a number of levels. First of all, it’s yet another expense we can’t afford. It’s going to cost about $800,000 the first year of implementation, and increase to $1.6 million and $3.5 million in subsequent fiscal years. This comedy of a legislative body continues to add items to a budget that is over $1 billion out of balance, and recent revenue projections suggest things are going to get worse, with federal budget cuts, gasoline prices and the devastation to Japan’s economy all having a ripple effect on Maryland’s coffers.
Second, it’s yet another step toward Maryland becoming a sanctuary state for illegal aliens, if it hasn’t already laid claim to that title. If you are here in this country illegally and you have children, the most attractive destinations for you are probably going to be those states that offer such benefits.
Currently, there are 10 states that grant in-state tuition to the children of illegal aliens. None of them border Maryland. Imagine the influx of illegal aliens from Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Delaware as they witness the Free State waving another freebie at them to entice their migration here.

By the way, in January the Center for Immigration Studies reported on a meeting of pro-migration, pro-amnesty activists meeting in DC where they admitted that black workers are hurt the most by more immigrants and rich white-collar people benefit from getting cheaper nannies and restaurant help at their favorite ritzy restaurants! It’s enough to make you scream! SOURCE: Potomac Tea Party Report
