The illegal alien facilitator groups in Frederick County are gearing up for 2021. After failing to end the lifesaving law enforcement activities of Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins and his work with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, these anti-American groups are trying a different approach.
They want to create a “Frederick County Immigrant Affairs Commission” 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.
And they want to stock the Commission full of illegal alien supportive types – businesses, faith, and community-based groups who serve illegals, er, “immigrants.” Two “immigrants” and a student with an interest in immigrant affairs will also round out this star-studded lineup.
This has all the trimmings and trappings of a road map and first steps to making Frederick a Sanctuary County. Frederick County taxpaying citizens, get your checkbooks ready!
Green card carrying legal immigrants and recent immigrants who are now citizens have no need for a special Immigrant Affairs Commission to look out for them. The County government already does a great job doing just that. Nor do Frederick citizens need this costly and biased Commission.
The sponsor of this Commission, Council Member Jessica “English is not my official language” Fitzwater, wants to help alien aliens and MS-13 gang members in hiding in Frederick. Jessica thinks illegal alien equals citizen and wants to spend your tax dollars, and jeopardize your safety, in order to make illegal alien criminals feel warm and fuzzy and welcome.
Tell radical Ms. Fitzwater and the rest of the Frederick County Council to vote NO on a proposed “Immigrant Affairs Commission.” Tell them to use the funds instead to help struggling citizen families and legal immigrants in Frederick County.
Here is a sample letter you can work from:
Dear Council Members,
I am urging you NOT to support the creation of an Immigrant Affairs Commission. A commission to give Frederick County’s growing immigrant residents, representing dozens of countries and cultures is not only a waste of taxpayer dollars but makes the county less safe. Unchecked immigration status has made the state of Maryland second in the nation in MS-13 criminal activity. Maryland MUST concentrate on requiring proof of citizenship of its residents in order for them to participate in government including VOTING.
The proposed Commission on Immigrant Affairs is a step backward. There is nothing in our local or state Maryland legislatures that exclude participation in government for those that are here legally. Maryland’s agricultural success thrives because of Americans, not because of immigrants.
Immigrants make up about 15% of Frederick County’s population, numbering over 49,000 people. Here, they raise their families, work and own businesses, and pay taxes. However, if their status is that of an illegal alien no government agency can provide a figure as to HOW MUCH in taxes are paid. Therefore, their contribution to local and state governments and in turn the community is questionable versus the drain of taxpayer dollars (for example the use of the public school system). Legal immigrants have as much representation as any other American. No one group requires a “commission” that all taxpayers must fund.
America’s diversity is boundless. There are no impediments prohibiting legal immigrants from participation in the governing process. Diversity does NOT make one special. If you are a legal immigrant, just like our ancestors, you’re NOT special. You’re a working, taxpaying American who wants what is best for the community.
Looking forward to hearing your response and hope you will NOT support this important bill!
