Maryland residents should remember that there is an important referendum on the ballot this year – one that would reverse the state legislature’s give away of in-state tuition to illegal aliens in Maryland.

Romney Says He Won’t Revoke Obama Amnesty Status

“Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Monday that illegal immigrants who receive temporary work permits because of the executive order issued by President Barack Obama would be allowed to keep them under a Romney administration,” The Hill reported.

“‘The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid. I’m not going to take something that they’ve purchased,’ Romney told the Denver Post in an interview. ‘Before those visas have expired we will have the full immigration reform plan that I’ve proposed.'”

New York Times Debates Using The Term Illegal Immigrant

“For two weeks, I’ve been listening to people and reading about the term “illegal immigrant.” I have gathered information from readers, advocates, reporters, and editors,” says Margaret Sullivan, public editor for the New York Times.

“After all the buildup, my weighing in may seem anticlimactic, because I see no advantage for Times readers in a move away from the paper’s use of the phrase “illegal immigrant.” It is clear and accurate; it gets its job done in two words that are easily understood.”

Florida Supreme Court Hears Case of Illegal Alien Seeking Bar Admission

“The Florida Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments about whether an illegal immigrant can be granted a law license. The case will be heard Tuesday,” the Fresno Bee reports.

Maryland Referendum Will Decide In-State Tuition Issue

“This November, voters in the eastern U.S. state of Maryland will decide whether to uphold a state law giving some undocumented immigrants tuition breaks at state-run universities and community colleges. Maryland could become the 12th state in the nation to offer undocumented immigrants lower tuition for higher education,” VOANews.com says.

The Wall Street Journal Never Disappoints for Hyperbole

“In contrast to Canada, the United States engages in a kind of human sacrifice, refusing to let technologists and scientists stay after they earn advanced degrees from top U.S. universities. Earlier this month, Congress missed its latest chance to open the doors to the best-educated and most-needed workers. Why can’t the U.S. be as welcoming as its neighbor to the north?” says L. Gordon Crovitz in the Wall Street Journal.

“Companies are now even willing to pay a new tax for permission to hire skilled workers. At a Brookings Institution event last week, Microsoft proposed more open borders in exchange for employers paying $10,000 per visa and $15,000 per green card. The company estimates this would raise $500 million the federal government could then give to school districts to boost scientific education in the U.S.”

    I hope the Maryland voters have enough sense to vote this down. Illegal aliens have NO RIGHT to be in this country no matter how they got here. I’m not a republican, but I will be voting for Romney and pray to God if he is elected, he will get our immigration laws ENFORCED and free this country of all the illegal aliens.

    Mr Flip Flop has a secret plan to end illegal immigration – it’s called amnesty. All of you republicans who voted for him during the primaries should be ashamed – we told you he would etch-a-sketch his way to a different pandering position.

    As to Gates proposal – why don’t we just sell all the kids into slavery now and setup factory towns – why bother with pretending to educate them for jobs that will be offshored and onshored.

    Gates deserves a special place in hell and all of the shortage shouters belong just as far down.

      The Democrats Have Turned Into Foreign/Corporate Republican Type Shills for Cheap labor

      And the Republicans use the organised crime route of lying, then doing the same thing the Democrats do anyway.

    What we have here is a slow, yet steady, conditioning of the American citizen to accept the invaders and the North American Union / One World government that is headed our way. The Agenda 21 crowd is pushing the envelope every day in every way to see how much the American people will stand before they finally snap. Romney and Obama are cut from the same cloth, different design. We should not hope for improvement. Only we the people can stop this and that is not likely since too many are in a trance. And it’s all about the numbers. There are too many foreigners here now already. I fear it’s too late. We’ve already been conquered. We will be called a Global Citizen instead of an American and we will like it! The eventual destruction of our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights will seal our fate and poof—we are done!

    Not much difference between Romney and Obama when it comes to welcoming the invaders. Wonder what they’ve got that we (legal Americans) haven’t? How did this nation get so turned around? We used to stop anyone wishing to do us harm. Now, our government welcomes those who shoot border agents and anyone else who gets in their way. The also encourge the child molesters, rapists, drunk drivers, and every type of criminal you can think of to come here. If they didn’t approve the invasion of our nation, it could be stopped immediately. Station our returning troops on the border from Brownsville to San Deigo, fully armed. Then demand those here leave within thirty days. Eisenhower did and we survived nicely until Teddy Kennedy invited the world. That should be his legaxy. The one who started the decline of the US by foreign invaders.

      Yes June

      Did you notice he said he’d get his Immigration Reform [code phrase for amnesty] before their temporary visas expired anyway?

      IMO, the Democrats have become Republicans for cheap global labor and the Republicans want the same thing with a higher attorney bill.

        Yes, I did, SWE. All we can do is hope that if Romney is elected, he will backtrack on some of these promises and hope that he is just pandering to get elected. Politics happens to be about the dirtiest business I can think of. The invasion could be stopped so quickly and simply, and then…let the repatriation (?) begin. Washington doesn’t seem to realize that this country is our home, and it’s been broken into. And, like the thieves who break into your house, they need to be punished. Punishment for illegal aliens is to be sent home. What is so difficult about that? Both parties are at fault for allowing this to happen, then continuing to ignore the problem until we are up to our necks in illegals who are destroying this nation. I’ll be willing to bet too that there will be little said tonight about the problem. They are so afraid of offending the invaders and their supporters, they’ll say anything. I would love to be the moderator and ask a few questions of my own!
