Delegate Pat McDonough will be introducing a Bill in the coming 2011 General Assembly session that will replicate the Arizona immigration law here in Maryland.
It is important to understand that such legislation simply restates a federal law to the state level. This does not change or add different legal requirements that are already enumerated at the federal level. Instead, this Bill will empower enforcement within the state.
As a candidate for the U.S. Senate, I, Daniel McAndrew, applaud and endorse Delegate McDonough’s attempts to properly apply the rule of law within Maryland concerning the issue of illegal immigration.
I challenge Senator Barbara Mikulski to also endorse this Bill, which will aid Maryland in controlling spiraling costs and unemployment of our legal residents. This Bill will go a long way to return fiscal and human responsibility to Maryland.
