HELP SAVE MARYLAND RALLY OVERWHELMS CASA SILVER SPRING ILLEGAL WORKER SITE
The CASA staff and illegal alien Day Laborers never knew what hit them today.
100 Help Save Maryland members and supporters arrived at the Silver Spring Day Laborer Center, bringing the lawless worker operation to a complete halt. There were plenty of signs, flags and voices letting the CASA center and those driving by that HSM members are opposed to wasting tax dollars on illegal worker centers for illegal aliens. Instead of furloughing Montgomery County Police officers and Firemen, this taxpayer funded illegal worker center should be shut down instead.
Concerned citizens participated from 10 Maryland Counties – Anne Arundel, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll, Cecil, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, Prince George’s and Washington. Our friends from the Cecil County Patriots drive 2 hours to support HSM!
And to think that all arrived today without taxpayer subsidies, taxpayer funded buses or taxpayer funded Metro fare cards.
Baltimore County Candidate for MD Dist 12A, David Aughenbaugh and a rep from MD Senate Candidate Jim Rutledge’s team were also on hand to support HSM.
WUSA TV 9 covered the event which was the lead story on the 6pm news. A radio station, the Washington Post, Gazette and Silver Spring Voice also interviewed our members. We also received lots of support from citizens driving by the Center.
One of my favorite scenes today was CASA’s Kimmie Propeack, so-called Director of Community Organizing and Political Action, ranting and raving at the Montgomery County Police Officers monitoring the event about our members being near the CASA entrance.
The Montgomery County Police, who did an excellent job all throughout the event, basically told Kimmie to get back on CASA property as HSM members were fully within their rights to march at the site. Poor Kimmie. You can bet MoCo Police Chief Tom Manger will be sending Kimmie a full apology next week.
Overall, it was an excellent event and I thank all the participants from around our great state. This should send a strong signal to Governor O’Malley, MoCo Executive Ike Leggett and the entire MoCo County Council that MD citizens have had enough of CASA of Maryland and their lawless taxpayer funded illegal worker centers.

Federal immigration program helps keep residents safe
In response to The Gazette article of May 6, “County defends federal immigration initiative,” I want to express my sincere appreciation to county Corrections Director Mary Lou McDonough and County Executive Jack B. Johnson for their decision to participate in the Secure Communities Initiative (SCI). I commend them both for implementing SCI and for resisting calls from organizations which do not respect the rule of law to end Prince George’s County’s participation in SCI.
Under SCI, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is contacted to check whether detainees are also being sought by ICE for known violations of immigration law. In contrast, under ICE’s more comprehensive 287(g) program, every detainee is investigated by corrections officers regarding their citizenship or immigration status. Consequently, under 287(g), foreign nationals who have entered the U.S. illegally without ICE’s knowledge are identified and reported to ICE.
Although I wish that Prince George’s County, like Frederick County, was enrolled in 287(g), I am happy that my county at least participates in SCI.
Those who have consciously violated federal law and who are being sought by authorities, at the very least, threaten the rule of law in our local communities. Further, for these fugitives — who are hiding from the law enforcement officials actively pursuing them — breaking yet another law, and yet another law, becomes easier to do. That is what SCI does — if fugitives are arrested for a second crime, then they face judicial proceedings for both the new offense and the old offense.
Although opponents of SCI claim that county resolution CR78 prohibits county law enforcement from working with ICE, such an interpretation would be a violation of U.S. immigration law, which states that “Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, no State or local government entity may be prohibited, or in any way restricted, from sending to or receiving from the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the immigration status, lawful or unlawful of an alien in the United States.”
We citizens demand that our communities are made safe, that the rule of law is respected and upheld, and that criminal activity of any kind not be tolerated.
Thank you Prince George’s County for your continued participation in the Secure Communities Initiative and for working to keep our communities safe.

Switching parties for Ehrlich
As a 30-year Democrat, I am so ashamed of Gov. O’Malley and seriously thinking of changing my political party. He has done nothing right as far as I’m concerned. [Giving] $1.4 billion last year to illegal immigrants, not including their health care. We rank No. 2 in murders and our school system is failing.
Illegal immigrants are given welfare, our state jobs through subcontractors and our state officials say they have no control over that. They are working on our highways and landscaping. When I asked O’Malley why, he said he wants to be fair. What’s fair about giving illegal immigrants welfare, a voter’s card and a driver’s license through 2015? I give up. Robert Ehrlich’s my choice.
