Montgomery County is a top place for illegal immigrants to live

The Fox News network published an opinion article entitled "An Illegal Alien's Guide to the Top Five Best Places to Live In America".

As an introduction, the author (Bob Dane) stated, "When 'relocating' to the United States, it's best to avoid states that have selfishly put the interests of their legal residents ahead of yours with laws that hinder your access to jobs and benefits. But many attractive destinations remain, endorsed by millions of illegal aliens already living in each."

Montgomery County has the dubious honor as number two on the list. And here is why, as Mr. Dane further elaborated, "If jobs are what attract you, then this upscale community close to our nation's capital offers the mother of all magnets."

"The first step to getting a job is to visit a Casa de Maryland (CASA) Welcome Center. Their employment specialists help you find a job and don't give a hoot about your legal status. They will even help you acquire an IRS-issued taxpayer identification number because, of course, you're here illegally and not eligible for a real Social Security number. This powerful organization is truly the illegal alien Welcome Wagon with $16 million in assets, $4.9 million of it acquired in 2010 from government contracts!

"Don't worry about secure communities because the county recently opposed its implementation. And for college-bound illegal aliens, take advantage of in-state-tuition now that the state passed the Maryland Dream Act."

And as a final tip, Mr. Dane stated, "Given that the citizens of these destinations keep voting for politicians who enact policies that welcome illegal immigration, we're certain they'll be pleased by your arrival."

Is it any wonder that this so-called Maryland Dream Act was sponsored by a senator from Montgomery County at the expense of the legal residents of this sanctuary state?
