CASA de Maryland: The Illegals’ ACORN

CASA de Maryland: The Illegals’ ACORN

There are 14 comments on the www.aim.org story from Sep 20, 2011, titled CASA de Maryland: The Illegals’ ACORN . In it, www.aim.org reports that:

The illegal immigration debate has become an urgent focal point of American politics. Liberal politicians from the White House on down have vigorously advocated for illegal immigrant amnesty and lax border enforcement in a naked attempt to bolster prospective voter rolls.

This controversy has been brewing for some time in Maryland, whose Hispanic population more than doubled between 2000 and 2010. Under Governor Martin O’Malley’s sanctuary policies the state has become an illegal alien magnet. The current cost of illegals in Maryland is estimated to be $1.7 billion per year, more than three-quarters of the state’s $2 billion structural deficit.

If MD continues down the path of being a sanctuary state, they'll end up in the same dire straits that CA is in.

Maryland Study Reveals Staggering Increase of Illegal Immigration Costs and
Voter Dissatisfaction

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/-- Simultaneous studies,
released this week by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR),
document the true costs of illegal immigration in Maryland and demonstrate
strong voter objections to the burdens placed on them by illegal
immigration. The price tag associated with providing education, health care
and incarceration of criminal illegal aliens is at least $1.3 billion a
year, finds The Costs of Illegal Immigration to Marylanders. The impact is
clearly recognized by Maryland voters. A new Pulse Opinion Research poll of
1,000 likely voters across the state found that, by a large margin,
Marylanders believe that illegal immigration is harming their state.

The Costs of Illegal Immigration to Marylanders found that taxpayers spend:

a..$ 1.1 billion a year to educate illegal immigrant children and the
U.S. born children of illegal immigrants.
b..$ 167 million a year on unreimbursed health care for illegal aliens.
c..$ 29 million a year to incarcerate criminal illegal aliens.
d.. The total represents an annual cost to each of Maryland's native-born
headed households of $ 625.
The cost study is based on an estimate that the illegal alien population in
Maryland is now 250,000 persons. The illegal alien population of Maryland
has grown exponentially during this decade, nearly quadrupling since 2000.

The Costs of Illegal Immigration to Marylanders

In 2008, the foreign-born population in Maryland represented nearly one in
every eight residents (12.4%), and illegal aliens constituted more than
one-third of that immigrant population. This illegal immigrant population
costs the state's taxpayers more than $1.4 billion per year for education,
medical care and incarceration. The annual fiscal burden amounts to about
$790 per Maryland household headed by a native-born resident.

View from Annapolis: Tuition break for illegal aliens constitutes an
'egregious benefit'

By Sen. J.B. Jennings
District 7 - Harford and Baltimore counties

Approximately three years ago, I was at my desk in the House Ways and Means
committee hearing room watching and listening. The room was crowded with
people spanning from special interest organizations, to lawmakers, to
citizens, statewide, all present for a single purpose: House Bill 1236.

House Bill 1236 entitled "Higher Education - Tuition Charges - Maryland High
School Students" would have entitled illegal immigrants to be exempt from
paying nonresident tuition at public institutions of higher education in
Maryland. If passed, the bill would have taken effect on July 1, 2008, and
required the governing board of each public institution of higher education
to adopt policies to implement this bill. Fortunately, House Bill 1236 never
made it to the House Floor for a vote.

This issue is no stranger to the Maryland Legislature. In 2003, the General
Assembly passed House Bill 253, entitled,"Higher Education - Resident
Tuition Charges - Immigrant Students and United States Military Personnel
and Dependents." The bill permitted illegal immigrants to receive in-state
tuition at a public institution of higher education in Maryland; however,
former Gov. Bob Ehrlich vetoed the legislation.

In his veto letter, the governor gave several policy reasons for vetoing the
bill. Foremost, to grant in-state status to illegal aliens would violate a
federal law enacted in 1996, and would reward illegal behavior. Gov. Ehrlich
also addressed the fiscal cost to the state could be potentially large. He
also opined that additional community college students included in the
enrollment counts would increase the state's obligations under the Sen. John
A. Cade funding formula. Finally, the governor raised concerns that the bill
would have allowed undocumented immigrants to take in-state slots from legal
Maryland residents.

WASHINGTON (Map, News)- About 52,000 people who received public benefits like food stamps and temporary cash assistance in Maryland last year didn’t have valid Social Security numbers, a state audit has found.

The state’s own Office of Legislative Audits found a “number of deficiencies” in the Department of Human Resources’ Family Investment Administration, including:

» Computer programs designed to detect ineligible recipients not being used for extended periods.

» Employees being able to modify recipient benefits without approval from a supervisor.

» Contracts were not sufficiently monitored to ensure that services paid for by the department were actually received

Maryland Legislative Auditor Bruce Myers signed the report, but was not immediately available for comment Monday evening.

The audit did not detail the total amount spent on assistance to individuals without valid Social Security numbers, but said overall, between July 2006 and June 2007, FIA made assistance payments totaling $488 million, most of which came from federal funding.

The temporary cash-assistance programs accounted for $105 million in payments and the federal food stamp program consumed $334 million.

“We’re increasing taxes a billion and a half dollars all based on spending and here we are subsidizing fraud at the taxpayers expense,” Del. Pat McDonough said.“I think we need a federal investigation into why this is happening. Somebody is responsible for this.”

FIA officials were also not available for comment Monday evening, but said in a written response to the Social Security number problems that they “concur that this issue needs immediate attention” and “several system fixes are in progress.”

Program leaders said in the response they are investigating cases of benefit recipients with missing or invalid Social Security numbers and have issued new policies to prevent some programs from accepting the same Social Security number for two individuals seeking benefits, if one has been federally verified.

A separate state audit released in October found similar problems in the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, where employees mistakenly issued driver’s licenses to people who gave the Social Security numbers of deceased people.

They seem to spread the joy in every State they sneak into. Fortunately MD is a huge military presence in the US, maybe if it get's even more out of control, they can enlist their help. Better yet make all criminal aliens serve 2 years in the U.S. military . omg Never happen, they'll be on their Donkeys heading south....

Your country was over thrown by Cortez ass hole. I do read my history, and your country was conquered by a tiny group of Spanish Conquistadors and you guys are still screaming reconquista to the United States. Aztecs didn't live this far North. American Indians did, ans your Spanish conquerors only brought Aztec's up here in Cali. to build missions fool.I was joking about our military enlisting illegals. They would be punished by serving.Your Country is such a joke, your people can't even live like civilized people do so you Government sends your poor to our Country. You are no longer welcome here.... Go home. We can't afford you.
