MCC - Fiscally Irresponsible!

Over the last few weeks, the Maryland Catholic Conference (and by extension the Archdiocese of Washington DC), has been pushing for the Maryland Dream Act. This would allow illegal aliens the ability to get in-state tuition rates.

Now, if you read their literature, and the Catholic Standard (and did you notice the story of the illegal alien a few weeks ago), there is no mention of cost.

According to an article in the Washington Examiner (page 4, April 18th), the number thrown out is that it will cost the taxpayers of Maryland at least $3.5million.

Now, most of us know that when a number like that is thrown out is it probably more like double or triple.

And who pays for this? The citizens and legal residents of Maryland.

Tell me, in this time of increased deficits, increased costs to families, (and we won't even go into the law breaking) don't you think that this is the height of fiscal irresponsibility of the Maryland Catholic Conference and the Archdiocese of Washington?

Maybe the Archdiocese of Washington should give everyone a break on the collection next Sunday.
