Illegals have become so emboldened they are now demanding written sanctuary policies in Baltimore.

Good idea, maybe once it's officially in black and white said sanctuary cities can be prosecuted for flouting the laws.

Unfortunately, the Feds won’t prosecute sanctuary cities. It’s alright to refuse to enforce the law, but it’s “unconstitutional” to enact laws to enforce federal immigration laws.

"There is a big difference between a state or locality saying they are not going to use their resources to enforce a federal law, as so-called sanctuary cities have done, and a state passing its own immigration policy that actively interferes with federal law," Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., told The Washington Times. "That's what Arizona did in this case."

You noticed that too huh?

Maybe some our elected officials should head for Mexico to be re-elected next time, because they're sure not giving a damn about the citizens here.

And now for the good part.

This week a Maryland legislator threw a wrench in Baltimore’s sanctuary public relations campaign by announcing a proposed bill that will give citizens the power to sue public officials who violate federal immigration laws. If the measure passes, citizens can file complaints against public officials in circuit court and, if convicted, the official could be booted from office or face criminal charges.

Yes indeed. I certainly hope it passes. Although I don’t live in Baltimore or its suburbs, the entire state of Maryland has been a disgraceful sanctuary. Fortunately, enough citizens have recovered from their coma to now demand action.
