Protests from local elected officials in Maryland this weekend forced the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) to cancel its plans to send illegal immigrant children to an Army Reserve center in Westminster, which is about 35 miles from Baltimore.
Maryland Democrat Gov. Martin O’Malley said illegal immigrant children flooding across the border should be considered “refugees” and all be given asylum status, but after Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) publicized the federal government’s last-minute plans to sneak illegal immigrant children into Maryland, there was considerable blowback. HHS backed off, citing things like insufficient access to drinking water at the facility. …
Despite O’Malley’s contention that the illegal immigrant children should not be sent back to what he says is “certain death,” residents of Maryland of all backgrounds have expressed concerns.
Last Friday, as Breitbart News reported, Elaine, “a black caller from Baltimore, Maryland told Laura Ingraham on her radio show that she was ‘living a nightmare’ because her ‘whole neighborhood is so violent.’ She wanted to know where she could get refugee status in her own country.”
