Maryland has continued to be the one state on the east coast that continues to give illegal aliens driver's licenses and if it is up to the Maryland House it will remain that way. They passed a bill last night by a vote of 77-60 to continue giving illegal aliens licenses. Oh there are some stipulations they claim. New illegal aliens wouldn't be allowed to get ID's, but current illegals will be allowed to renew theirs.
In a most ridiculous statement, Delegate Joseline Pena-Melnyk of Prince George's County had this to say "You want to call it amnesty, OK, let’s call it amnesty, ... It means you have a heart, you take care of those 200-and-something-thousand people so they can continue to have a life and continue to get to their job.”
She is referring to the 250,000+ illegal aliens that recent Pew Hispanic Center reports say reside in Maryland. I'd say have a heart for the American citizens and the rule of law, but people like Pena-Malnyk could give a crap about them. After all, bleeding hearts are what made this country great right?
How can we understand these people who are voting for this kind of tripe? Well I did a lot of digging while writing this article and rather than put it here as I planned, I have put together another entry on Joseline Pena-Melnyk that you can read to see what other pies people like her have their fingers in (hint, Casa de Maryland).
There is hope in Maryland though and it comes in the form of the Maryland state senate. They voted last night 36-11 for a conflicting bill that would deny illegal aliens ID.
Those who support driver's licenses for illegal aliens tried to play the crying game by stating that denying illegal aliens driver's licenses wouldn't allow thousands of them to drive children to school or themselves to work. Cry me a river. Illegal aliens aren't supposed to be working in this country and their children should not be soaking up taxpayer dollars in our schools and packing our classrooms - taking away attention from the legitimate kids in this country.
Del. Jolene Ivey was the lead sponsor of the illegal alien driver's license bill in the House. Ivey sits on the Board of Directors of Casa De Maryland.

House Bill 387 - Vehicle Laws - Lawful Status in the United States - Material Compliance with Federal Requirements
I thought Annapolis had hit its all-time low for passing the death penalty bill, but unfortunately on Friday night they managed to break their own record. A bill sponsored by Delegate Ron George of Anne Arundel Co. and Delegate Jim Malone of Baltimore Co., with over 60 other sponsors, was intended to bring Maryland into compliance with the Real ID Act and to prevent illegal aliens from receiving driver’s licenses. What’s wrong with that, you ask. Well, the Judiciary Committee, whom we refer to as “lawmakers for lawbreakers” and the “criminal advocate society” amended the bill from its original purpose and created a bill guaranteeing that illegal aliens will receive driver’s licenses, along with the right to vote.
The debate on the House floor went on for hours. The lies from the proponents were outrageous and would not be believed by anyone with the slightest common sense. This went on under the watchful eye of Ms. Kim Propeack of Casa de Maryland, which has close ties to Pres. Victor Chavez of Venezuela. She sat alone in the balcony like a puppet master pulling the strings of the House. It was like a scene from Dante’s Inferno.
I took a very active role in the debate, offering an amendment stripping the ability of illegals to register to vote or to use the driver’s license crafted for illegals as a document to register to vote. These amendments were rejected by the Democrat floor leader Del. Dumais of Montgomery County, and her efforts were assisted by Del. Barve, the House Majority Leader, arguing that, while illegal aliens do not have the right to vote, the State does not have the right to prevent them from registering to vote.
These are the insane times we live in. After each major conflict that our country has faced in the past 100 years, such as World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, illegal aliens have been deported to create jobs for our returning soldiers. Now, our soldiers are returning home from Iraq and Kuwait to a high unemployment rate and are having difficulty finding jobs to return to their former way of life. Del. Curt Anderson, along with other supporters of illegal aliens, are more concerned with illegals having jobs and the ability to get to work.
Had this debate been televised, those supporters of illegal aliens would never be able to return to their districts or be re-elected. More than sixty members of the House had to have their names removed from the bill, along with the two lead sponsors. We believe the bill will be back on the floor tonight for a final vote (third reading). IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME TO COME TO ANNAPOLIS TO SHOW YOUR OUTRAGE, NOW IS THE TIME!

BlueTyphoid you asked about the voting laws, right? Well, this clearly shows that all you need is a Maryland Driver's License at the time you vote...
If you registered to vote after January 1, 2006, you most likely satisfied the identification requirement during the registration process. If you did not satisfy the requirement, your local board of elections will have notified you and requested information to satisfy the identification requirement. (See list below.)
You can satisfy the identification requirement by providing, at the polls, one of the following:
Your driver's license number, MVA-issued ID card number or at least the last four digits of your social security number, and we will attempt to verify this number with MVA or the Social Security Administration. You will be contacted if election officials were unable to verify the information;
A copy of a current and valid photo ID (i.e., Maryland driver's license,
If you do not satisfy the identification requirement before voting for the first time, you will be required to present identification when you vote.
So, if you were issued a DL by Maryland, you can vote, even if you are an illegal alien.
Why do you think they are demanding a DL from our states?
