A Maryland delegate says a plan by the nation's leading gun rights group to file a lawsuit to overturn the state's recently passed firearms bill is meeting some resistance among activists.
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has yet to sign his gun control bill, but gun rights supporters are already gearing up for a referendum that would let voters decide whether they want to keep the sweeping legislation.
A Maryland delegate is lashing out at Gov. Martin O'Malley for calling many Republicans "immigrant bashers" whose attitudes toward illegal immigrants are motivated by "thinly veiled racism."
Maryland Democrats and immigration activists gathered Tuesday to celebrate passage of the Dream Act on the same day opponents said they are nearing a key milestone in forcing a referendum on the issue.
Maryland Republican lawmaker Patrick L. McDonough said Thursday the General Assembly's passage of the Dream Act, which allows in-state tuition for many illegal immigrants, has "awakened a sleeping giant in this state" and that he is now rallying forces to challenge its constitutionality.
A Maryland lawmaker is seeking to remove the judge who dismissed a Montgomery County case because of delays in securing an interpreter for the trial of a Liberian immigrant accused of raping and repeatedly molesting a 7-year-old girl.
"Our belief is that President Obama should be suing mayors [of sanctuary cities], not Arizona," said Maryland state Delegate Patrick L. McDonough, Baltimore County Republican.
Mr. McDonough said he plans to introduce two immigration laws during the next General Assembly session: one that calls for a state ban on sanctuary cities and another patterned after the Arizona law.
