Although this involves illegal immigrants, I thought some readers here might be interested to know that citizens working hard can succeed against the Democrat Party leadership and the Open Borders immigrant lobbying groups such as CASA de Maryland.

High Court decides in favor of citizens, against CASA and the Democrat Party leadership
Maryland citizens will now have an opportunity to vote on the controversial issue of whether taxpayers will have to subsidize the college educations of illegal aliens.
I told you just yesterday that Joseph Sandler, a DNC kingpin representing CASA de Maryland and indirectly Gov. Martin O’Malley-the-ambitious, had taken the issue all the way to Maryland’s highest court this week—-they lost!
From MD Petitions website here is the good news.
Less than 24 hours after hearing Casa de Maryland’s case attempting to stop Marylanders from being able to vote on a bill that would give in-state college tuition benefits to illegal aliens, Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, affirmed a lower court decision finding that Marylanders have the right to vote on the issue this November.
Chairman of MDPetitions.com, Delegate Neil Parrott* indicated that, “This is a great victory for all Maryland voters. Volunteers across the state worked extremely hard last year for this referendum effort. Democrats, Republicans, and Independents realize that using tax money to pay college tuition costs for illegal aliens doesn’t make sense.”
MDPetitions.com was very pleased to be represented throughout each step of the court proceedings by Judicial Watch with their attorney, Paul Orfanedes. The decision confirms that the efforts for democracy will not be discarded based on a lawsuit from Casa de Maryland and illegal aliens who tried desperately not to allow Maryland voters to be able to vote on the issue.
Delegate Pat McDonough indicated that, “We have won the first half of the super bowl. Now, in order to win the entire game, we need to be successful at the polls on November 6th, election day.”
When asked what he thinks would happen in the election this coming November, Delegate Neil Parrott indicated that, “The majority of Maryland voters understand on the face of it that Maryland is spending too much money as it is, and that it would not make sense to go against existing federal law to subsidize college tuition costs for illegal aliens who cannot even work in the country legally after they graduate.”

For readers of RRW, you may recognize the name Joseph Sandler (the “silencer”) because he has represented Muslim organizations (CAIR!) and worked to silence Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch. This is what I learned last summer about Sandler (among other things!):
~Joseph E. Sandler threatened an organization that Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch planned to speak to in order to silence him and keep him from discussing the Muslim advocacy group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), here and here [Frontpage magazine story that isn’t opening at the moment–ed]. Here Spencer suggests Sandler isn’t much for free speech. (LOL! We are starting to come to the same conclusion!)
