Message From Protestors In Montgomery County: Illegal Immigrants Get Out
SILVER SPRING, Md. (WUSA) — Members from the group, Help Save Maryland, stood on the sidewalk outside CASA de Maryland to send a bold message. “Legal immigrants are welcome in the USA, not illegal immigrants,” shouted a protestor.
Some protestors chanted, “Arizona law is U.S. law,” and others held up signs that read “deport them all.”
Blake Sutherland said, “I don’t like the idea tax payer dollars being spent or grants for here to CASA on people who are here illegally.”
The Director for Help Save Maryland said, “It (CASA) employs illegals, so the idea is to attract legal businesses to come in and pick up workers who have no legal presence in our state.”
The work center is an organization funded by the state that provides services to Latino, low-income immigrants.
“This is against immigrants, this is against everything CASA stands for,” said Andre Vainqueur.
A woman from El Salvador, living in the country illegally, said, “They are making us feel like criminals, but we are hard workers.”
The group of protestors is preparing for a June Rally against CASA de Maryland’s new building in Langley Park.
