Unreal Crime Infested Baltimore to Spend 200000 Defending Illegals
Baltimore will begin to use public funds for legal defense of illegal immigrants facing deportation, Democratic Mayor Catherine Pugh announced Wednesday.
A city spending panel approved $200,000 to pay for attorneys to represent illegal immigrants living in Baltimore who federal immigration authorities have detained, The Baltimore Sun reported.
Half the money will come through a Vera Institute of Justice grant, a New York nonprofit, and the other half will come from the city’s budget.
The combined funding is expected to support immigration appeals for about 40 people.
Pugh described the initiative as a way to help ensure detained Baltimore residents have legal representation, regardless of their immigration status.
The Constitution does not guarantee legal representation for people in civil immigration proceedings, unlike criminal defendants. – READ MORE
