Voters should have final say on immigrant tuition plan

April 26, 2011

The voters of Maryland should and must have the opportunity to decide if our tax dollars will be used to subsidize the college education of illegal immigrants. This will have to be put on the 2012 election ballot in Maryland.

This issue is too important to be forced on the taxpayers by a handful of elected officials in Annapolis who have a political Interest and agenda. The Maryland Dream Act, sponsored by state Sen. Victor Ramirez and Del. Anna Sol Gutierrez passed by a slim majority in both the House of Delegates and Senate.

This radical legislation propels Maryland to the forefront of leading sanctuary states in the country. There was and still is strong vocal opposition to this legislation from Democrats, Republicans and independents across the state. The bottom line here is that we can't afford this liberal giveaway.
