Sign Help Save Maryland’s Petition To Tell Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland, “NO TO OBAMAS EXECUTIVE AMNESTY”

MARYLAND CITIZENS DO NOT SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY!

In January 2015, before the swearing in for Governor-elect Larry Hogan, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh took it upon himself to set immigration policy for the new Hogan Administration.

Acting alone, AG Frosh signed on to an amicus curiae or “friend of the court” brief with 11 other states in support of President Obama’s controversial executive amnesty for illegal aliens. This questionable brief was submitted in opposition to the formal legal challenge filed by the State of Texas and 25 other states which argued that the President’s unconstitutional amnesty would be a financial burden on the states.

During the 2014 Maryland campaign for governor, Candidate Hogan stated on multiple occasions that he opposed illegal immigration in Maryland. And Maryland citizens fully understand that Governor Hogan was not in office when AG Frosh signed on to the original January court brief supporting Obama’s executive amnesty.

But on March 12, 2015, AG Brian Frosh did it again! This time signing on to another “friend of the court” brief demanding that the Federal Court of Appeals overturn a lower court action delaying implementation of the President’s amnesty.   This was done without so much as a peep from Governor Hogan’s office.

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

Obama’s Executive Amnesty means 5 million more immigrant lawbreakers will take additional jobs, healthcare and social services from deserving Maryland families. With a social security card illegal aliens will obtain federal and state tax refunds, “earned income tax credits”, access to even more government services and the ability to register to vote in Maryland elections. Maryland taxpayers already spend nearly $2 billion annually for the education, healthcare and incarceration costs of illegal aliens.

Please sign the Help Save Maryland Petition. Tell Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to:

  • Immediately withdraw the State of Maryland from the “friend of the court” briefs signed by Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh. Maryland citizens are tired of paying for illegal aliens in our communities.
  • Put our state on record with the federal courts and the American People that the law-abiding citizens of Maryland refuse to support President Obama’s Executive Amnesty.
  • Order Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh to cease and desist from providing any further verbal or written support for the unconstitutional Executive Amnesty being promoted by the White House.  

This past November, Maryland citizens voted for dramatic “Change” through the election of Larry Hogan as Governor. Eliminating blatant support for Maryland policies and programs that promote illegal immigration was a key component of the expected “Change”.

Tell Governor Larry Hogan to stop Attorney General Frosh and Maryland’s immigration lawlessness! Even New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has stepped up to oppose Obama’s executive amnesty. It’s now time for Governor Hogan to do the right thing.

Obama Admin. Gave Social Security Numbers to Over Half a Million Illegal Aliens

April 15, 2015 – 3:07 PM

(CNSNews.com) – Social Security numbers (SSNs) were given to 541,000 illegal aliens, according to Carolyn Colvin, acting commissioner of the Social Security Administration (SSA).

In a March 12 letter, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) had asked SSA: “How many individuals have applied for SSNs as a result of the June 15, 2012, memorandum issued by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano entitled ‘Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion with Respect to Individuals Who Came to the United States as Children’?”

(See SSA Letter.pdf)

“By the end of fiscal year (FY) 2014, we had issued approximately 541,000 original SSNs to individuals authorized to work under the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy since its inception,” Colvin said in her April 10 response.

Napolitano’s June 15, 2012 memo states that “for individuals who are granted deferred action by either ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] orUSCIS [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services],USCIS shall accept applications to determine whether these individuals quality for work authorizations during this period of deferred action.”

The 2012 memo acknowledges that it “confers no substantive right, immigration status or pathway to citizenship,” adding that such benefits can be conferred “only [by] the Congress, acting through its legislative authority.”

(See Napolitano memo.pdf)

However, according to Sessions’ office, “an illegal immigrant who receives a Social Security number will be able to draw federal tax credits, Social Security retirement benefits, and Social Security disability benefits.”

Illegal Aliens Registering To Vote – Former DOJ Official: Non-Citizens Registered To Vote Through Motor Voter Registration Forms

Local state government officials are registering non-U.S. citizens as valid voters – even when the non-citizens say they are not Americans on their voter registration forms, a former Justice Department attorney tells The Daily Caller.

J. Christian Adams, a former United States Department of Justice official in the Civil Rights Division will show the Supreme Court in a brief later this month that non-citizens are registering to vote through the government’s motor voter program. The motor voter act became law during the Clinton administration as an easier way to register voters through their local Department of Motor Vehicles offices, but Adams says the program is failing to weed out those who are not American citizens.

“The bigger problem is that when they get those drivers licenses, there’s a government social services agency that is compelled under motor voter to offer voter registration,” Adams says. “For example, I’m representing a client – the American Civil Rights Union. We’re about to file a brief to the Supreme Court that shows actual voter registrations of people who on their voter registration forms that they’re not citizens, but they’re still getting registered to vote.”

Adams says they are going to file documents showing the names and addresses of non-citizens who were registered to vote, despite marking on forms they were not Americans, in their brief. Adams notified the Justice Department’s voting section and public integrity offices of the issue in letters sent to both DOJ divisions, but he says they have not acted on the information. TheDC sent an inquiry to the DOJ, but did not receive a response.
“[These will be] the actual voter registrations forms through motor voter,” he said, noting, “The point is, because of motor voter in issuing these alien document cards, you’re going to have non-citizens moving on to the voter rolls. It’s inevitable,” said Adams noting, “The Justice Department protects the lawless, because there’s a political benefit to this administration to allow lawlessness to occur. Because if those people who lawlessly are on the voter rolls go to vote, there’s probably a 9 in 10 chance they’re voting for Democrats.”

Like other states, illegal immigrants in California are flooding local DMV’s in an effort to get drivers licenses. However, many states are not remarkably distinguishing the licenses issued to both citizen and non-citizen alike, so it is difficult to see from an issued license if an individual is an American or not.
States including Michigan, Maryland, D.C., Illinois, California, Vermont, and Colorado are bucking a federal law that requires their DMVs to issue explicitly different looking drivers licenses to non-citizens from the licenses U.S. citizens received.

Former Federal Elections Commission official Hans von Spakovsky told TheDC the federal government is making it harder for the states to know who is a citizen of the U.S. and who isn’t.

“The whole problem is most states are not issuing licenses that easily on their face show that the person holding it is not a U.S. citizen and that’s going to make it much more difficult to prevent people who are in the U.S. who are not citizens from illegally registering and voting in an election,” von Spakovsky said.
Von Spakovsky adds the situation is made even worse by the president’s immigration plan. The plan allows for social security numbers to be issued to non-citizens and blocks efforts of state officials wanting to clean up their voter rolls by asking for the last four digits of a person’s social security number on their voter registration forms.

“If someone is here illegally and they don’t have a social security number, that’s one way to prevent them from illegally registering. It just makes it all the more difficult,” von Spakovsky says of Obama’s immigration policy.

Secretaries of state from Kansas and Ohio, along with von Spakovsky, testified before Congress in February detailing the issues states are facing in terms of knowing who is eligible to vote.

Ohio, Georgia, and Arizona passed state laws requiring one to provide proof of citizenship to register to vote, but von Spakovsky says, “They’ve been having trouble getting that enforced and they’re about to file an amicus brief with the Supreme Court.”

ICE Director: Officers Must Carry Cards to Help Them Keep Their Immigration Priorities Straight

April 14, 2015 – 12:36 PM

(CNSNews.com) – There was a bit of show and tell Tuesday on Capitol Hill, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Sarah Saldana told the House Judiciary Committee about her department’s efforts to enforce immigration law while also following the more lenient policies outlined by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson last November.

“We have actually put out real substantial training on this, sir,” Saldana told Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.). “And every officer uses one of these cards, which clearly outlines those priorities.”

Saldana held up one of the cards.

“And quite frankly, I carry it myself — and try to make sure that each of these priorities…the first one is outlined on the front, the second and third priorities  on the back,” she said, as she flipped the card over. “Again, trying to make an effort to clarify for law enforcement where our priorities should be.”

Saldana said she has directed her staff to raise any questions about the Obama administration’s immigration priorities up the chain of command.

“I have met with every one of the Field Office directors in the country by video. I have directed them that if they have any questions, they are to raise it up their chain and ultimately to me — who bears the ultimate responsibility for the appropriate enforcement of those priorities.”

As outlined by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson in the Nov. 20, 2014 memo, the three immigration enforcement priorities include Priority 1, aliens who threaten national security, border security and public safety; Priority 2, aliens convicted of three or more  misdemeanor offenses or a “significant misdemeanor,” as well as recent border-jumpers; and Priority 3, aliens who have been issued a final order of removal on or after Jan. 1, 2014.

Millions of illegal aliens who do not fall into one of those three categories may now remain in the United States without fear of deportation as long as Obama is president.

According to the DHS memo, “resources should be dedicated, to the greatest degree possible, to the removal of aliens described in the priorities set forth above, commensurate with the level of prioritization identified. Immigration officers and attorneys may pursue removal of a alien not identified as a priority herein, provided, in the judgment of an ICE Field Office Director, removing such an alien would serve an important federal interest.”

In an MSNBC/Telemundo interview on Feb. 25, President Obama warned immigration officials that there would be “consequences” for those who don’t follow the new policies:

“There may be individual (ICE) officials or Border Patrol who aren’t paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of the Department of Homeland Security, because he’s been very clear about what our priorities should be….If somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy there are going to be consequences to it,” Obama said.

Republicans say not only is Obama ignoring the plain language of the law by deferring deportation for millions of illegal immigrants, but he also seems to be threatening DHS personnel – including ICE officials and Border Patrol agents who are trying to perform their duties.
