    Republicans are just as guilty as the democrats are when it comes to selling out this country to illegals.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The only thing to say about this, is it just nuts and every american citizen should be pissed off about it.

    As more and more states start to follow Oklahoma and Arizona's lead all the illegals will flee to these sanctuary states. I wonder how many illegals these sanctuary states can tolerate.

    Re: Immigration University Insiders: Illegal Immigrants Get Affirmative Action

    Crap like this pisses me off. Illegals should not even be in this country, let alone be given perks that rightfully belong to legal residents and citizens. For every illegal who is given preferential treatment, there's one legal immigrant or citizen who will not be able to get into that school, because admissions are not unlimited. This totally sucks. We're the only country on the planet that is not "allowed" to enforce its own immigration laws or secure its own border, and we're sure as hell the only country that actually pays people who come here illegal with taxpayer dollars.

    Alright DiAnna, you know I love you, but I just have to point out that a lot of the people who have responded in this thread haven't actually read what the bill entails and have resorted to engaging in typical stereotypes of illegals. Let's take a look at just WHO it is this bill is affecting:

    Maryland’s Dream Act backlash - The Washington Post

    MARYLAND IS the latest state to extend college tuition breaks to undocumented immigrants who graduate from state high schools, provide tax returns going back five years, prove their academic mettle by completing two years of study in a community college and, for men, register for the draft.
    These are stringent requirements, and the state is not going out of it's way to cater to illegals. This bill has tough restrictions on just who it applies to, and it is designed to give those individuals, who through no fault of their own are undocumented, an opportunity. These individuals grew up in the state, and are Americans/Marylanders in all but name only. They have already proven to that they are high-caliber members of society and are ready to contribute to the economy. It doesn't make practical sense to just deport these people for something their parents did, and make them go to the back of the line when they are in a much better position to help both themselves and the state right now. The state of Maryland has decided that extending such a courtesy to these individuals will be beneficial in the long term, and I am proud of their decision to take a sensible and humane approach to the immigration issue rather than one charged by absolutes, stereotypes, and uncompromising/impractical positions.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    If they are undocumented they are illegals.
