From the office of Del. Pat McDonough:
Delegate Pat McDonough has been consulting with two major national legal foundations regarding a lawsuit against the recently passed Maryland in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, the so-called “Dream Act.” Delegate McDonough was one of the leaders in the fight to defeat the “Dream Act” in the General Assembly.
The Baltimore and Harford County lawmaker was the leader in the effort to produce a lawsuit against Montgomery County Community College. The litigation, which has been filed on behalf of taxpayers and is being implemented by Judicial Watch, has a hearing scheduled on May 5th.
Delegate McDonough stated, “Maryland has become a Disneyland for illegal immigrants, providing attraction and free rides and is costing taxpayers billions of dollars. The “In-state Tuition Act” will make things much worse, attracting more illegal immigrants. The politicians, including the Governor and the leaders of the General Assembly are advocates for illegal immigrants, promoting amnesty and sanctuary policies. For those reasons, I must take the peoples’ cause into the judicial system to seek justice.”
Delegate McDonough believes the “Dream Act” violates the Federal Immigration Law and conflicts with the U.S. Constitution.
