I’m reposting here a comment made to my last post, The idea of getting states, counties, or local governments to officially stand against the federal government’s imposing illegal immigrants on them is a good one and should become a movement across America.

The issue of unrestrained (invasion) of illegal aliens into Maryland is a serious issue of arbitrary federal power in violation of the US constitution, which is also the supreme law in Maryland. Any government agency or official who collaborates with or facilitates this type of tyranny is NOT protecting Maryland citizens, and acting in a traitorous way against our basic laws and fundamental constitutional freedoms and rights to secure borders, which is vital to any sovereign country. Richard Rothschild, in his recent Fox News interview brilliantly laid down the basic points required of any Maryland patriot to stand against this federal lawless tyranny, which I have sought to articulate the main points in a “resolution”. This document could be presented for consideration to any city, county government, or other entity of public interest, such as central committees, citizen and patriot groups of one sort or another. Here it is: Resolution to Protect Maryland Citizens from the Arbitrary Power of the Federal Government to Allow Unrestrained Entry of Illegal Aliens into the United States.
The United States has well-established national borders, within which citizens and other persons must comply with the authority of the US constitution and laws of the federal and state governments, and
The US congress has established limits and regulations to control the entry into the United States from outside these borders through such means as travel visas, passports, and immigration laws, and
The US constitution provides that under Article IV, section 4, the federal government shall “protect states against invasion”, and under Art. II, Section 3, that the executive of the federal government will “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” and,
The Maryland Declaration of Rights, Article 2, upholds the US constitution as supreme law in the state, and
The federal government, through arbitrary power of executive order, contrary to its own immigration laws, has established a policy and practice of unrestrained entry and release of certain classes of illegal aliens, such as so-called “unaccompanied minors”, and
In furtherance of this policy of unrestrained entry and release of illegal aliens, in 2014, the federal government has begun to disperse large numbers of these aliens in the various states, seeking local and state collaboration with this unlawful and unconstitutional activity, and
There is no rational basis or emergency to justify such extraordinary violation of immigration laws at the present time, since there are ample, practical, and less extreme means to protect aliens who claim refugee status at a location within or next to the borders of their own country of residence,
THEREFORE, Be it now hereby resolved, that:
The state of Maryland shall protect its citizens from the financial burden and danger of complying with the arbitrary power of the federal government that pursues the entry and release of illegal aliens in the state by refusing to provide funds, services, or any other form of collaboration to maintain or support the unlawful presence of such illegal aliens in the state.
The state of Maryland also urges the federal government to enforce its immigration laws against the unlawful entry of persons into this country, such as by returning illegal aliens found in this country to their country of origin, or next contiguous country in case of undue physical peril on claim of refugee status.
