This is unbelievable, Maryland, the state that loves its illegal aliens and wants them to go to college on the taxpayers’ dime, is joining ten other states in a brief to the Supreme Court against the so-called “Arizona Law” that makes it more difficult for illegal aliens to live and work in that state.
Wahhhhhh! wails our Attorney General Douglas Gansler! If too many illegals leave Arizona they will come to “welcoming” Maryland! And, we can’t have that!
Eleven state attorneys general have filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court against the Arizona immigration law SB 1070, oral arguments on which will be heard next month. Here’s the hilarious part:
Because Arizona cannot compel the federal government to remove undocumented residents, SB 1070’s provisions have the primary effect of redirecting undocumented immigrants to other States.
In other words, if Arizona is allowed to assist the feds in enforcing the immigration law, illegals living there (and prospective illegals considering a destination) will move to the states filing the brief, namely New York, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont. But if “undocumented residents” are such a great thing, as the policies of these states (in-state tuition for illegals, anti-E-Verify measures, and so on) clearly suggest, why not welcome more of them? Regardless of the Supremes’ ruling, Arizona taxpayers should buy bus tickets for illegal aliens willing to relocate to these states.
They are already on the way!
According to this recent Washington Examiner story, Montgomery County, Maryland leads the way in the DC metropolitan region in attracting immigrants. As a matter of fact a reader recently told me that many getting across the southern border are told to make their way to “welcoming” Montgomery County!
Fairfax County, Virginia leads in overall population growth, but Montgomery County attracts more people from other countries (the article does not make a distinction between legal and illegal people from “abroad”).
More people at home and abroad are choosing Fairfax County for their new home over any other jurisdiction in the region, according to new census data released Wednesday.
Meanwhile, rival Montgomery County’s new population was driven by immigrants, as nearly one-quarter of the roughly 68,000 new residents in that county came from outside the United States, according to the latest American Community Survey estimates.
Across the Potomac, Montgomery’s growth in residents was driven by a large number of people coming from abroad. A total of 15,791 people immigrated to the county, accounting for 23 percent of the county’s new residents, according to an analysis of the survey. Immigrants in Fairfax make up about 16 percent of the new residents there.

By the way, Gansler also joined a brief in the Supreme Court in favor of Obamacare. Keep all this in mind if he runs for Governor in the future.
