A conservative watchdog group announced Thursday it will aid in the legal defense of a petition drive against a Maryland law that would allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition under certain circumstances.
Paul Orfanedes, director of litigation for Judicial Watch, said the group's request to help defend MDPetitions.com's petition drive was recently granted by the court.
"It's nothing like an appropriations bill," Mr. Orfanedes said. "It has nothing to do with raising or spending funds. It's an eligibility issue and it's a benefit, so we disagree with that."
