Get Ready for Federal Amnesty for Illegals!

Help Save Maryland Action Alert


All members of Help Save Maryland are strongly recommended to become members of both NUMBERSUSA and Federation for American Immigration Reform. Both organizations will provide you with the latest updates and suggested actions you can take as we prepare to battle Congress over Amnesty for Illegal Aliens. HSM is not setup to handle the minute by minute action requests that will need to get out to all members. Thanks.

Brad Botwin, Director, Help Save Maryland

We are on the home stretch for proposed legislation in Annapolis. Please try to attend both hearings, especially the House Bill HB 1234. HSM as with lawful presence requirements for Drivers' Licenses is also pushing for lawful presence for all Public Benefits. SB 696 is also very important as it will require companies to use the federal E-Verify Program for state contracts.

Please sign up to testify for both hearings even through they are at the same time and across the street from each other. Please find other HSM members when you sign up and decide who stays with a cell phone at each hearing room. Advance warning can be given by these designated HSM members as to when bills are up for discussion in each room. That will give all time to go from one building to the other.

Can't make it to Annapolis? Please e-mail and /or call each representative listed and tell them you strongly support the bill. Keep it short, sweet and on point.

As a former 45 year Arizona resident now a political refugee, what continues to astound me is how the focus is now being taken off securing our borders with fencing, which would cut down on the amount of illegal immigrants right away. Each and every day more and more pour over those borders, and Arizonans have been on the front line of this fight for decades. They then spread throughout the country, and so does the drugs those cartels bring through that open desert.

E-Verify is great, except that the employers that purposely hire them will not use it, so that system is a wash. Even if there was a law mandating its use, there is not enough manpower to enforce it.

Denying funding for illegals for social services at the state level is great - except that there is a federal law mandating that hospitals and health care facilities much treat them, and even provides taxpayer dollars for their care.

And the amount of work visas that are given to Maryland for illegal employees is actually requested and petitioned for at the state level, so addressing this at the federal level is leaving the states and their collusion in what is occuring out of the mix.

Also, the big businesses that hire them also pay off local law enforcement through civic donations to their various charity organizations in order to prevent from getting busted. That is why although Mariott, Hilton and the casinos in Nevada are big employers of illegals, they never get busted. They simply make a bust or two occasionally on some small businessman that doesn't donate to their benevolent funds.

It's all a game, and until Americans start to see the game for what it is - collusion between federal and state legislators and their Big Business backers - nothing will change.

How do I know this? Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution mandates that the federal government is charged, upon request of the states, with providing for the defense of those states by foreign invaders. All the state's have to do to get that southern border secured is to sue the federal government for "break of contract" under the Constitution.

And so far, since the immigration lawyers and criminal attorneys make so much on those criminal illegals, this has not been done. Because the largest campaign donors at both the federal and state levels are actually lawyers.
And they are the ones primarily on the illegal immigrant gravy train.

So wake up, America, this is intentional collusion going on here between the state and feds for their own personal benefit, and until that fact is brought into the open, again, nothing will change.

And Numbers USA has also been silent on the fact that these work visas are actually state initiated, not federal.
