Maybe ICE should raid the Senate gallery

March 11, 2011

Several concepts that The Sun and its reporters seemingly fail to recognize are "illegal" and "affordability."

I was amazed to read in the article "Tuition bill takes a step forward in Senate" (March 10) by Annie Linskey that roughly two dozen illegal immigrants watched the debate from the Senate gallery on Wednesday.

Let's get this straight now — two dozen people who are illegally in this country are watching our state Senate debate a discount for them to attend colleges in a state that has a severe financial problem.

Last time I checked, our state Senators were elected to represent the interests of the legal citizens of the state of Maryland. They were certainly not elected to add to our financial burden by creating entitlements for illegal aliens.

Two words come to mind: term limits!
