AND Loop Hole Number 1 for illegals" in the "Right Choices Program"
"(c) Eligible Individuals- To be eligible to participate in a Right Choices program under this section, an individual shall--
(1) be a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence or otherwise residing in the United States under color of law;"
Color of law: meaning "pretense or appearance of" some right; in other words, 'color of', as in 'color of law', means the thing colors (or adjusts) the law; however the adjustment made may either be lawful or it may merely appear to be lawful. In other words, just because something is done with the 'color of law', that does not mean that the action was actually lawful (wikipedia)
which bring us to PURCOL
Permanent Residence Under Color of Law (PRUCOL) is not recognized as an immigration status by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS); this category was created by the courts and is a public benefits eligibility category. For a person to be residing "under color of law," the USCIS must know of the person’s presence in the U.S., and must provide the person with written assurance that enforcement of deportation is not planned. A person residing under PRUCOL status cannot directly apply for U.S. citizenship or sponsor family members to obtain U.S. Citizenship. A person from any country, who resides in the United States without current legal immigration status including, but not limited to, citizenship, permanent residency, unexpired immigrant visa, is an undocumented person. Though they are not U.S. citizens, they are considered to have the same rights as U.S. citizens ‘for welfare eligibility purposes’. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prucol
In Short Illegal aliens that have been released on thier own that the US has no intention of forcing Deportation on...humm there are about 10 million of them and PER the Color of law they can not even have their statuses checked unless they break the law.
Gets even better:
...the state is required to pay the providers under the Medicare system...so you tell me... how many illegals we have here in the great Haven of Maryland and now OUR state taxes will have to pay for their medical expenses..not the WHOLE country just Maryland...oh and you surly know we already have mega MILLION dollar deficit....40 Million alone in MoCO 20 some million in Frederick...what do you think is gonna happen to state taxes when this goes through... you know Obama never promised your State taxes weren't gonna increase.
...hope you like taxes... How about the CLASS tax.....it is a new long term disability tax tucked away into you medicare taxes...only you can opt out..IF YOU KNOW ABOUT IT...and only certain times a year. OH and you have to make sure multiple employers aren't billing you and they will bill you via payroll tax for your spouse if he/she does not work. Of Course the Rules and procedures to opt out are at the discretion of the Secretary of the Treasury..hummmm the IRS..so you tell me how you think that process is gonna go. I have even money they take it and make you claim on your returns..if you even can figure out the red tape.
