I know, I’m two days late getting to this, but better late than never.
From the Baltimore Sun two days ago:
The red-and-white placards outside the Motor Vehicle Administration office in Frederick strike some as an invitation: “Sign petition here. No in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.”
One after another, supporters walk up. Over the course of the morning, Carol Geisbert welcomes, among others, a Montgomery County mother of three college-bound teens, a truck driver named Dewey Sayers and a 28-year-old Frederick Community College student wearing a Beastie Boys T-shirt.
Two Carroll County sisters in their 60s practically skip to the table.
All are eager to get their hands on the petition.
“Just tell me where to sign,” says one of the sisters, Pat Baumgardner, who whistles as she approaches. “I got better things to use my tax money for.”
Over the past two months, volunteers such as Geisbert have fanned out across the state to gather signatures for the petition to give voters the final say on the controversial new law that extends in-state tuition discounts to illegal immigrants.
There is lots of good stuff in the article, so read it all.
Just file a tax return!
I was happy to note that the Sun reporter makes the distinction about this issue of “paying” taxes or filing a return. Open borders advocates claim the illegals must “pay” taxes, but they need only file a tax return (the IRS does not turn people over to ICE, so they have no fear of filing)… just file a return as Identity Inc. told its illegal immigrant clients recently, here, in a hand-out obtained by PTPR.
Important note: Taxes can be filed for previous years, even if no income was earned.
To qualify for the tuition break, an illegal immigrant would have to attend high school in Maryland for three years and show that his or her family had filed state tax returns.
More later on the petition drive.
