To the Editor,
I have a few points I’d like to go over after one our elected officials said that county police will not ask if they are a legal citizen for whatever reason.
Ignorance, arrogance, laziness — or something to hide. They chose not to take the legal path to citizenship.
Second point: Tax Evasion. Non-citizens pay no social security, no federal income tax, no state income tax and no property tax — just sales tax. Must be nice!
But yet, they use our fire, police, emergency medical services, schools, libraries, parks, trash pick-up, etc. All on the taxpayer’s dime.
Thirdly, sworn police officers take an oath to uphold the laws of the Constitution (federal law) and state laws. Protecting a tax evader is criminal.
Finally, this is why I have switched parties. Democrats used to be about blue collar, unions and working class people. You know, Dundalk people.
The Democrats need to remember its legal citizens who pay elected officials’ salaries.
