Breaking News: CASA, a Maryland Teachers Union and an illegal immigrant will bring suit today

In a Press Release received just now from Maryland Petitions, Delegate Neil Parrott has announced a suit will be filed today against the highly successful petition drive to get a referendum on the ballot for 2012 to LET THE VOTERS DECIDE if they wish to subsidize the college educations of illegal aliens.  (Update:  Here is the news at the Baltimore Sun)

From Maryland Petitions Press Release:

Breaking News:  Today at noon, 3 groups will officially announce their lawsuit against the Maryland State Board of Elections.  Their goal?  To throw out your signatures and invalidate all of your hard work.

We just received word that CASA de Maryland, the Maryland division of the National Educators Association (NEA), and an illegal immigrant will jointly file a lawsuit on the basis of two things:

1) They are claiming that all of the signatures obtained from the website are not valid.

2) They are asserting that the entire petition drive is not valid as they feel that the bill is an “appropriations bill” which, according to the Maryland Constitution, is not permitted to be petitioned.

Of course, we disagree with their assertions and will be sending out a press release by this afternoon with our response.  We will send it to you first.

The will of the people of Maryland was clearly shown through this petition drive.   We do not want to pay our tax dollars to pay for more than half of the college tuition for illegal immigrants – people who are breaking the law.  Through your hard work, we turned in more than TWICE the number of signatures required.

Now is the time to take action – This lawsuit is ignoring the will of the people AND trying to disenfranchise your signatures by playing political games.

We will be in touch very soon with more details and action steps.

In my opinion this is a huge tactical error on the part of CASA de Maryland and the NEA—they should just let the referendum process move forward and work hard to get their viewpoint out to the public.  Now, they are going to look as mean-spirited as they apparently are!

And, once again I wonder how many kids could be put through college if they just used the money they will use to sue to actually help individual kids!

Time for Maryland conservatives and believers in the rule of law to donate at MD Petitions, here.

  2. Are the lawmakers going to remain dumb like rows of Headhunters trophies with their lips stitched together on reducing illegal migrants and immigrants? Just one presidential candidate has the backbone to stand up against political propaganda, having the conviction to address this monolithic problem. That personage is Rep. Michele Bachmann, Caucus leader of the TEA PARTY and the only one who dares to establish a connection between the rapidly rising Treasury debt ceiling and the evermore support of the illegal aliens, who are congested schools, health care and millions of inroads to free programs, enacted by Liberals on Capitol hill. We as a country by keep on giving Citizens-legal residents entitlements to the invaders, will seed even more to come here.

    The most progressive enforcement in 30 years will soon be debated in Washington and that is Chairman Lamar Smith’s ‘Legal Workforce Act’, known as H.R.2164. Known nationwide as E-Verify to the business community and the general public equally, it must be enacted as a mandatory measure. This is a SELF-DEPORT MECHANISM FOR ILLEGAL WORKERS, that is simple, electronic and with no cost to the business world. Of course like anything else, the Leftist advocacy groups have tried to tear it apart, but mostly to no avail. Originally, when it came up for a vote over a year ago, good old Senator Harry Reid nearly got it tabled, but it squeezed through to the dismay of all his big corporate contributors and that was when the American public paid attention to it as a deterrent. Smith’s new law would reinstate the no-match letter program to help identify the 7 million illegal aliens currently holding non-agriculture jobs. Yes! There is always a need for high profile professional workers. No! We cannot support the poor other other nations, specially when our own desperate are suffering. It would require most employers to use E-Verify within two years of enactment. Large employers, federal, state, and local agencies and federal and state contractors would need to comply within six months.

    The only problem that I see is safeguards for the State of Arizona law, along with Georgia, Alabama, and other States that have enacted laws ahead of H.R.2164. WILL THESE STATE LAWS BE COMPROMISED BY A FEDERAL LAW? After the apprehension that Arizona was losing its shirt as upwards of $2 Billion, 569 Million annually from subsidizing the waves of illegal aliens coming across the unsecured border. (FAIR’S analysis.) This was the inception of the struggling American people’s peaceful revolt, against Capitol Hill, and each of the 50 States being crippled by foreign national’s fingers in the financial pie. Not just from those stealing across our borders, but the 40 percent that takes in their mind, to illegally immigrate through airports arrivals or even from entering by boat or ferry. The United States has had an open border for way too long, and now with the crippling recession the whole illegal alien invasion has catapulted into one of the main political issues today.

    The Legal Workforce Act (H.R.2164) would:

    * Phase in E-Verify over three years, starting with the largest companies first.
    * Require the Social Security Administration (SSA) to target illegal aliens using fake social security numbers by sending out “no match” letters to employers if the name and social security number of a current employee do not match. Requires the employer to check those employees through E-Verify after receiving a “no match” letter.
    * Require SSA to send a yearly notification to each owner of a social security number that has multiple employers reporting income to that number indicating that the number may have been stolen and is being used by illegal aliens. Requires employers to run through E-Verify those employees who are likely to have stolen the number from the legitimate owner.
    * Establish a phone verification system as an alternative to using the electronic system.
    * Require the use of E-Verify for those contracted at day labor sites and other referral or recruitment services.
    * Protect employers who use the system in good faith from liability if the system makes an error on eligibility.
    * Protect states’ and localities’ authority to revoke business licenses of employers who fail to use E-Verify as required by this Act.
    * Significantly increases the penalties for employers who refuse to use the system, or who intentionally try to game it. The fines levied can be up to $25,000 per unauthorized worker and a minimum one-year prison sentence may be imposed on an employer who engages in a “pattern or practice” of violations.
    * Require SSA to lock the use of social security numbers when it is being used by someone other than the rightful owner, when the owner has violated immigration laws and been ordered to leave the country, or when the owner’s temporary visa has expired.

    Only the true TEA PARTY leadership was borne from what is wrong with either the Leftist-Democrats or the far right Republicans. Like the Phoenix from the ashes of ultra Right, the Tea Party is a revolution for all citizens and legal immigrants, no matter their race or religious doctrine. They have watched their nation’s money being squandered in massive spending fiasco by the Obama administration, by the Bush presidency and others before him. The day of reckoning is upon us, with a massive $14.5 Trillion dollars deficit that is coming to a festering head now, and yet Liberals are pressing for another Amnesty. Under the Tea Party, a wing of the Republicans that have promised there will never be another amnesty, of which the 1986 giant citizenship law a fraudulent embarrassment. Its outcome was to drown all Americans in a 20 million plus population of foreigners without papers. Be mindful of the behemoth monetary consequences of any new immigration Reform packages, the Dream Act and the materialization of more Sanctuary Cities, has accelerated CHAIN MIGRATION, yearly. This is another expenditure that is added to federal and State deficits that is costing all taxpayers. However, the Tea Party is here to stay and will never retreat from the people’s interests, which extends to cutting out-of-control spending and a irrational tax system that is fair to everybody, with no loopholes for the wealthy.

    One of the most critical points that must be addressed, is non-citizens voting in our elections. In polling places and registration verifications, we must scrutinize carefully the voting rolls for all irregularities. Illegal Aliens have been voting and will again using mostly ABSENTEE BALLOTS.The Democrat Left progressives see no Constitutional differences in who votes in the United States.

  3. “And, once again I wonder how many kids could be put through college if they just used the money they will use to sue to actually help individual kids!”

    But it is NOT about the kids. It is about erasing the meaning of being a US citizen.

  5. This was expected, we all knew this was coming, big deal! Let’s concentrate on what is important:
    1. Please, if you have a little extra cash, donate to MDpetitions legal fund by sending a check or credit card donation. No amount is too small, do not let them silence your voice.
    2. Judges, in many cases are elected to their judgeships, we need to keep track of what judge makes the decision, and, of course, what that decision is.
    3. Tea partiers may want to make a trip to the Annapolis court house with a message (through signage, etc.): We will not allow you to ignore the people’s voice.

    • Good points all—and donating now is the best thing you can do this very minute.
