MD’s O’Malley: Don’t Send Illegal Aliens To Certain Death

From the Politico:

Martin O’Malley: Don’t send kids to ‘certain death’

By KYLE CHENEY | July 11, 2014

NASHVILLE — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley urged compassion Friday for children flooding over the U.S. border from Latin American countries, sharply rejecting any wholesale effort to return them to places where he said they could face “certain death.” …

Baltimore? Or did he mean Detroit? Or maybe Phoenix?

During a press conference with other Democrats at meeting of the National Governors Association in Nashville, O’Malley insisted the young would-be migrants deserved due process in the immigration system.

Why are ‘children’ from non-contiguous countries given hearings, when the ‘children’ from Mexico and Canada are not? Whatever happened to equal protection under the law?

And how come it perfectly fine to deport these kids with ‘due process’ in the two centuries since the country’s founding until this new provision was enacted in 2008?

“We are not a country that should send children away and send them back to certain death,” he said, adding: “I believe that we should be guided by the greatest power we have as a people, and that is the power of our principles. Through all of our great world religions, we are told that hospitality to strangers is an essential human dignity.”

But the US didn’t have any such principles until December 2008.

O’Malley said the facilities housing the children look more like a scene from a “local Humane Society than a humane country.” He called them “kennels” and said the youth should be placed in less restrictive settings, such as with family members or in the foster care system.

And yet he wants more ‘kennels.’ By the way, did he take pictures? Doesn’t he want the world to know how cruel we are?

He also described the children as being “refugees” from crime-ridden neighborhoods…

According to FBI crimes statistics, Baltimore is the seventh most dangerous city in the United States. Its violent crime rate is 1,417 per 100,000 residents. ‘Politician [sic] heal thyself.’

    Today, July 14, 2014 Maryland’s Gov and other Maryland Democrats shut down plans for a facility in Westminster Plans for a facility in Westminster, MD were called off immediately.

    Maryland’s Gov. Martin O’Malley and other Democrats have opposed illegal immigrant children to be placed in
    Maryland back in June and continue to do so.

    A vacant Metro West Comples on Baltimore’s west side was stiffly opposed by Maryland Democrats was nixed turning hundreds of immigrant children away.

    A location in Prince George Maryland was canned.

    An attempt to house poor illegal immmigrant children from Central America on a 68 acre site on Melwood Road in
    Upper Marlboro that was once a home for “poor orphan children that is now owned by a Drug Addiction Treatment
    but closed because of a bad history is being considered but the owners refuse to speak to anyone and have no phone number to call. May be hiding from a scandel so there still might be hope.

    Feds are eyeing a closed former Drug Treatment Facility in Upper Marlboro located at 4620 Melwood Rd, but I’m not sure if it’s the same one.

    Mikulski said her “first concern is for the health and safety of these children who have made a perilous journey to escape violence at home.”

    “Federal agencies must work closely with local communities and nonprofits to select sites that meet the unique needs of these vulnerable children,” the Maryland Democrat said.

    “We must be careful to select sites that are kid-friendly. Being empty and available cannot be the only criteria we use.”
