In Maryland we have sanctuary cities and counties, go to great lengths to ensure illegal aliens have full access to all social services and now propose giving illegals in-state tuition at our public colleges and universities. And we wonder why we have a problem with illegal immigration? Why do we feel it is necessary to encourage illegal immigration? Is it because not enough citizens are utilizing our social services and unemployment benefits? In-state tuition for illegals will make it more difficult for in-and out-of-state citizens to attend our public colleges and universities, but it will encourage more illegals to come to Maryland. Is this in any way sound economic and social policy?
