Breaking News: CASA loses “Dream Act” case, Sandler says they will appeal

Here is the hot news this afternoon, thanks to Jeff for letting us all know!

From the Baltimore Sun a few minutes ago:

Voters will decide in November if they want to allow in-state tuition for some illegal immigrants, an Anne Arundel County judge ruled late Friday.

Judge Ronald A. Silkworth disagreed with arguments by CASA de Maryland and others that the law adopted by the General Assembly last year can’t be the subject of a referendum. They contended it was an appropriation and therefore couldn’t be put before voters.

Giving in-state tuition benefits to certain illegal immigrants was a hot-button issue for legislators and many voters. Opponents put together a sophisticated petition campaign to get it on the ballot in hopes that voters would overturn the measure.

“We expect to appeal it,” said Joseph E. Sandler, who headed the legal team trying to erase the referendum.

He said he had yet to carefully review the ruling, and declined to comment further.

Chalk one up for the little guys—the taxpayers!   As soon as we learn more, we will get it to you.

Just a reminder of how important this case was to Gov. O’Malley and his pals at CASA de Maryland, they hired big gun Joseph (the silencer) Sandler who is the former General Counsel of the Democratic National Committee.  Last summer I chronicled some of his handy-work and here are a few items from his resume:

~Joseph E. Sandler was the general counsel for the Democratic National Committee until 2008 or 2009 and does work for MoveOn.org, here.

~Joseph E. Sandler threatened to sue Fox News in order to silence Glenn Beck, here, and here.  (Sandler represents Van Jones! and Big Government calls Sandler, “Van Jones mouthpiece” here)

~Joseph E. Sandler threatened an organization that Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch planned to speak to in order to silence him and keep him from discussing the Muslim advocacy group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), here and here.    Here Spencer suggests Sandler isn’t much for free speech. (LOL! We are starting to come to the same conclusion!)

~Joseph E. Sandler represented CAIR Maryland, here (posted on it here).

~Joseph E. Sandler threatened to silence Free Republic and X-M Radio, here.

The attorney who sent the letter on behalf of the DNC is attorney Joseph Sandler, representing the Democratic National Committee. In my view, Sandler is a thug representing a bunch of reprobates and bullies

~Joseph E. Sandler represented Barack Obama in a birth certificate case, here.

~Joseph E. Sandler is fighting across the country to stop any state efforts to get photo ID for voters, here.

~Joseph E. Sandler set up front groups to defeat the Tea Party, here.

Another Washington labor lawyer, Joseph Sandler, who is described as a “renowned expert on election law,” has created a crow’s nest of front groups whose goal is to undermine the Tea Party movement. These groups have funneled vast amounts of union dues money, including $10 million from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), into fronts with innocuous names such as “Patriot Majority” and “Citizens for Progress.”

~Joseph E. Sandler is General Counsel to newly formed Democracy Partners, a “consultant” group that includes the likes of Socialist community organizer Heather Booth, here.

~Joseph E. Sandler is an expert in the referendum process having submitted a friend of the court brief in the Supreme Court case involving a gay marriage referendum last year, here.   Readers may recall that the petitioners personal information was posted on the internet for the world to see, and Sandler thought that was just fine by him and his fellow Democrats.  (But God forbid we would require photo ID to vote—that is invading privacy!)

Joey and the boys are grooming O’Malley for the big time so he has to win the in-state tuition subsidy for illegal aliens and get gay marriage passed (and through a referendum vote).   Our job is to stop him!

  1. [...] we are on the subject this evening of illegal aliens and lawyers defending them, here,  I don’t suppose you missed the news about the Moroccan would-be terrorist arrested today [...]

  2. And stop him we will! We are Marylander patriots! For the first time in my life, to quote one of my favorite Michelles, “I’m proud to be a Marylander!”

  3. [...] if you missed it, we had the good news that CASA de Maryland lost its court case on the Dream Act. here. Like this:LikeBe the first to like this [...]

  4. I am happy to hear that the court had the good sense to let the people decide the “Nightmare Act.”

    Now, to more pressing business. Gay marriage passed the house, but we can still stop it. I am encouraging everyone to call and e-mail Senator Shank and ask him, respectfully, to filibuster the bill in the senate.

    Senator Shank can be reached here: e-mail: christofer.shank@senate.state.md.us

    and/or call his local office here: 301-432-6200

    Also, if a filibuster fails we may need to take this to petition, the way we did the “nightmare act.” Anyone willing to help with a petition drive should contact Mdpetitions.com. (The sooner the better)
