CASA de Maryland’s Facebook page denounces the new Arizona immigration law and highlights opposition to the measure by Meghan McCain, daughter of Arizona Republican Senator John McCain.
CASA de Maryland created a major controversy by distributing an eight-page book telling illegal aliens how to avoid law enforcement authorities. The CASA book, Know Your Rights (PDF) tells illegal aliens not to carry “any documents from your country of origin” and that “providing your name” to a police officer “has risks” because “your name can be used to start a deportation process.” It flatly says, “Don’t provide government officials information about your immigration status.”
“Only in America can groups like CASA and their illegal alien criminal clientele use tax dollars to lobby for amnesty and equal rights, all to the detriment of the American people and our way of life,” commented Brad Botwin of Help Save Maryland.
Help Save Maryland is a multi-ethnic, grass-roots, non-partisan organization with thousands of members across the state. “We are opposed to the use of tax dollars on programs that attract and sustain illegal aliens to Maryland,” Botwin explained.
