Ooooh! Scare me! Progressive Maryland is watching us!

Progressive Maryland (we told you about them on previous occasions, here is one post), a sidekick of CASA de Maryland, is looking for us! 

They are looking for signature collectors for the petition to bring to referendum the bill recently signed into law by Governor Martin O’Malley which requires Maryland taxpayers to subsidize the college educations of illegal aliens. They don’t want the voters of Maryland to decide the issue in 2012.  They say they want to stop us?

Hint to Progressives!  Our “small group of extremists” is everywhere (fairs, carnivals, street corners),  some of us wear red shirts that say “sign the petition,” we have clipboards in our hands, sometimes we have white signs with the red words “sign the petition,” and we have smiles on our faces!

Here is the action alert being sent out today by Progressive Maryland:

Preserve Their DREAMs and Maryland’s Future

Progressive Maryland, Casa de Maryland, and allies worked hard to pass the new Dream Act in April to allow high-achieving, tax-paying immigrant students to attend Maryland colleges at in-state tuition rates. Our state joined ten others that now benefit from higher graduation rates, lifetime employment skills, and tax payments (See Washington Post editorial).

But now a small group of extremists is collecting petitions to repeal it and take away educational opportunities from Maryland’s children and military families.

Please help us stop them [what! are they planning to send out goon squads?—ed] and defend progress in Maryland. If you see any anti-DREAM petitioners, call 443-990-1010 to report the:

Address you saw them and description

Date of the sighting (if not immediate)

What the petitioner was telling signers

Save and call the “One Maryland Defense” Hotline Number: 443-990-1010
(or 1-877-299-7473 for Spanish/bilingual calls)


CASA de Maryland, Progressive Maryland, Baltimore City Council, Maryland State Board of Education, Montgomery and Prince George’s County, the University System of Maryland, Morgan State University, Maryland Association of Community Colleges, Maryland State Education Association, Maryland Industrial Areas Foundation Affiliates (IAF): Action in Montgomery (AIM), Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development (BUILD), and People Acting Together in Howard (PATH), Baltimore Jewish Council, Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church, Greater Baltimore Urban League, Korean American Association, Jewish Community Relations Council, Maryland Catholic Conference, Maryland Episcopal Diocese, Maryland Interfaith Legislative Committee, Maryland Vietnamese Mutual Association, Presbytery of Baltimore, Progressive Maryland, South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), and dozens…

To readers:  If you belong to one of these groups listed above, you might wish to call them and express your displeasure at their support for giving away your tax dollars, AND, ask if they support intimidation tactics expressed in this action alert?

How about making this suggestion to them:  let each of those “church” groups and “ethnic advocacy” groups raise private money to send the illegal kids to college!

CHECK IT OUT HERE AT THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS!  Today’s signature validation count is in—41,194 validated signatures as of today!   That leaves only 14,542 to go by June 30th!


  1. Ann: I could not stop laughing when I read this release from progressive MD! They are actually trying to interfere with our Constitutional Rights! What was even funnier was when I witnessed Kim Propreak of CASA de Maryland jumping in front of petition signers and harrassing them at the Rockville Hometown Holidays Street Festival! I was going to call the police but the GOP booth that we were “guests of” was scared of CASA! Can you imagine living this way in the USA? It was quite comical watching Kimmy Propreak run between the petition volunteer and the signer as one of our tall gentlemen ran in front of her and blocked her each time she did this. I counted a total of at least 5 or so times. I think she finally got exhausted. This is what happens when Ethnic-Centric far LEFT interest groups are allowed to take over Annapolis and schmooz and have love- ins with our corrupt politicians year after year

  2. PT 2: Just like a spoiled child, CASA de Maryland is used to getting whatever it wants and has major temper tantrums when it doesn’t get it’s way!


  3. […] Addendum:  If you didn’t see it yesterday, check out the tactics being used by Progressive in Maryland to intimidate Petitioners, here. […]
