    Opponents of legislation designed to give college tuition breaks to illegal immigrants in Maryland say they are on track to collect the thousands of signatures needed to try to overturn the measure that passed the General Assembly last month.

    Del. Neil C. Parrott (R-Washington) and Del. Pat McDonough (R-Baltimore County) are leading the effort to give voters a say in whether to uphold the bill.

    Parrott said volunteers in most of Maryland’s counties are gathering signatures and spreading the word at grocery stores and community events that “our tax dollars are going to fund illegal aliens,” he said. “Now is not the time to be spending money on what is an unlawful program.”

    Sen. Victor Ramirez, the Prince George’s Democrat who sponsored the legislation, said immigrant advocates and other proponents of the measure would mobilize to educate voters and ensure that the signatures gathered are valid. He called Parrott’s message “misleading” and said the legislation would not give immigrant students a free ride.

    “It gives kids the opportunity to go to college and be treated like all other Maryland high school graduates,” Ramirez said.

    Since most states are trying to rid the country of the invaders from Latin America by whatever means, it should show Washington that Americans will NEVER see these attackers as fellow countrymen. They will be looked at in disgust as deadbeats from a third world cesspool of their own making.
