Maryland’s largest city will hire immigration attorneys to help those facing removal. It’s important to note that Baltimore has the nation’s highest per capita homicide rate and has been coined the deadliest big city in the United States. Nevertheless, a city panel approved spending $200,000 this month to pay for lawyers to represent illegal aliens with deportation orders. Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh says that the goal is for everyone to get due process.
Unlike the criminal justice system, in immigration court, the government doesn’t offer free lawyers to those who can’t afford them. This means that illegal aliens who don’t have the money to pay for one must represent themselves in legal proceedings or rely on volunteer attorneys or paralegals provided by immigrant rights groups. This leaves many illegal aliens in removal proceedings without adequate legal representation.
The trend of using taxpayer dollars to assist illegal aliens in deportation proceedings started under the Obama administration.

No it's a slap in the face to tax payers, it's no different to anything else in this system.
Reality is we are pitted against each other, we all have our moral boundaries and thats what is used against us.
Nothing will stop this is people like yourself pick a side and then fight for it, you ignore that this happens everyday at every level, when you find a cause you can get behind you go for it and feign moral outrage.
Until the day comes that you can see the forest for the trees this crap will continue....
Hook-handed hate cleric Abu Hamza has launched a legal fight to return from his super-max US jail to a softer UK prison.
Egyptian-born Hamza, 58, was jailed for life for terrorism offences during a trial in New York city last year, and has been serving his sentence in solitary confinement at a high security prison in Florence, Colorado.
Hamza was extradited to the US after the British government spent a decade trying to kick him out of the country.
The legal battle cost the tax-payer £25million with a further £3million claimed by Hamza in benefits.
He rose to notoriety in the UK after becoming imam of the Finsbury Park mosque, in north London, in 1997.

They also draw welfare benefits and attend public schools paid by taxpayers. Again, our representatives are not held accountable for allowing this to continue. This is just one of many issues that legal citizens should directly vote on in general elections. Our representatives are bought and paid for by too many special interest groups. Sometimes I wonder if we really need to spend millions of tax payers dollars to fund representative salaries when the people's voice can easily be tallied in the voting booth.
