Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and the General Assembly provide programs that benefit illegal aliens - and it is costing taxpayers heavily. Policies such as providing access to driver’s licenses, in-state tuition discounts and health benefits and a generally welcoming attitude contribute to an inducement that encourages illegals to continue to flood into our state.

This foolish and liberal policy is costing Maryland residents more than $1.4 billion annually. The costs imposed on taxpayers during these times of economic difficulties and budget deficits become even more of a burden because programs for education, seniors and other necessary services are being cut drastically. The annual fiscal burden amounts to approximately $790 per Maryland household. This is the reason why we are being taxed to death here: because our leadership in Annapolis chooses to support more than 300,000 unwanted Illegal Immigrants in our state.

It high time we pulled the plug on this waste of taxpayer money and quit coddling and supporting illegal immigrants in this state.
