It’s 2021 and the illegal alien support groups in Frederick County (and the region) are ready to strike. After failing in court to end the vital law enforcement 287(g) program activities of Frederick County’s Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, and his partnership with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, these anti-American groups are trying a different tactic.
They want to create a Frederick County Commission on Immigrant Affairs (Bill No. 20-18) to understand, facilitate civic engagement, and recognize and legitimize all things for “immigrants.” Access to and delivery of services and information tailored to “immigrants” is key.
Special services and special privileges for those with no moral or legal right to be in Frederick County? And they want to stock the ‘Immigrant Affairs Commission’ with illegal alien supportive types. Such as, businesses that rely on illegal alien workers, and faith and community-based groups who often aid and abet illegals. Two actual “immigrants” (legal status unknown), community college administration types, and a student with an “interest in immigrant affairs” will also round out this star-studded and very-biased commission lineup.
One can’t imagine what this dangerous Commission will recommend, can you?
This is the very first step in formalizing a process and roadmap to create a Sanctuary County in Frederick.
Frederick County Taxpaying Citizens, if this Commission becomes law, get ready to subsidize a tremendous influx of illegal aliens and their families. All ready to overrun your schools, social services, healthcare system, and job market. This is just what happened in Montgomery County and Baltimore City with taxpayers footing the bill.
Green-card carrying legal immigrants and recent immigrants who are now citizens have no need for such a special commission to look out for them. If Frederick County’s new Americans are unaware of programs and services available to them, solve this lack of information through outreach programs via multimedia, and through email and postal mailings to all County households.
Most citizen households, who makeup the vast majority of Frederick County residents, would appreciate this information as well. The Covid virus pandemic caused economic hardship, social isolation, and joblessness that has impacted every Frederick County family. County council members should spend vital taxpayer resources on helping all citizens, not the very few proposed with this biased Commission.
The Frederick County, Maryland state and federal government already do a great job in outreach for ALL CITIZENS. Moreover, despite false and misleading language in the Commission’s prelude, all citizens and legal immigrants already receive equal protection under the laws and respectful treatment in Frederick County. The same holds true for illegal immigrants when arrested and detained for violating our laws.
The sponsor of this Commission, radical council member Jessica “English is Not my Official Language” Fitzwater, seemingly wants to help alien aliens and MS-13 gang members hiding in Frederick and other locations, NOT legal immigrants. Jessica thinks illegal alien equals citizen and wants to spend your tax dollars, and jeopardize your safety, in order to make illegal alien criminals/gang members feel warm and fuzzy, and welcome.
Why should we allow this?
Jessica’s real goal is to undermine and then force an end to the very effective and life-saving work Sheriff Jenkins conducts with ICE via the 287(g) program – a program that safely, effectively, and legally removes criminals and gang members from our streets.
Jessica does not care about the crime, murders, drugs, prostitution, rapes of underage girls, illegal voting, and the national embarrassment caused by illegal immigrants and MS-13 gang members that we see in neighboring sanctuary counties [Montgomery, Prince George’s, Baltimore, Howard (effective 2/21) and Baltimore City]. Jessica wants to spread the wealth to Frederick County as well.
TAKE ACTION NOW! PLEASE CONTACT THE FREDERICK COUNTY COUNCIL!
– Tell radical Councilmember Fitzwater and the rest of the Frederick County Council to VOTE NO on the proposed Commission on Immigrant Affairs.
– Tell the Council that the public health, safety, and general welfare of Frederick County citizens will decline through creation of this biased and unnecessary Commission.
– Tell the Council no special services and special privileges for those with no moral or legal right to be in Frederick County.
– Tell the Council that you support law enforcement and the rule of law in Frederick County, not some lawless, biased and, frankly, racist immigrant affairs commission.
– Tell the Council that if Frederick County’s new Americans are unaware of programs and services available to them, solve this lack of information through outreach programs on TV and radio, and through email and postal mailings to all County households.
– Tell the Council that the “local government fiscal and policy note” prepared by the Frederick County Finance Division on the cost of the Commission (less than $40K per year) is a joke on the taxpayers. Substantial future costs that will be caused by the Commission are not taken into account.
– Tell the Council we live in Frederick County, not Montgomery County! Once this biased and unnecessary Commission does its thing, it will cost taxpayers untold tens of millions ANNUALLY in additional public school, law enforcement, incarceration, healthcare, social services, welfare expenses, and more.
-Tell the Council to use taxpayer funds instead to help struggling citizen families and legal immigrants in Frederick County hurt by the economic impact, social isolation, and joblessness caused by the Covid virus pandemic.
