Md. delegate seeks illegal immigrant tuition lawsuit

ANNAPOLIS — A Maryland lawmaker says he is talking to attorneys about filing a lawsuit against a measure allowing in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

Delegate Patrick McDonough, R-Baltimore County, said Thursday he is consulting with two national legal foundations to take action against the bill that was approved by the General Assembly on Monday.

McDonough led an effort to sue Montgomery College for its long-standing policy of providing county tuition rates to all recent county public school graduates, regardless of immigration status.

McDonough says Maryland has become “a Disneyland for illegal immigrants.”

The bill allows illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition if they complete two years at a community college and can show that their parents paid state taxes for at least three years before they graduated high school.

  1. The State has a huge deficit, has 6% sales tax, has hefty income tax, doubled all state fees and road tolls a few years ago. Now the Senate passed a 50% drink tax on beverages (not milk YET).

    Forget the middle class and our poor citizens! Now the state wants to buy future votes by legalizing illegals, and having current taxpayers pay for illegals’ subsidized tuiton.

    All African, South Americans, Europeans, Asians and other non-taxpayers are MORE than WELCOME to come to Maryland for FREE Goodies!
