Illegal Immigrant in Maine Likely to Become a Maine Tax Burden
Watch this case evolve. We have an illegal alien caught with false documentation here in the state of Maine (read the story here). She was sentenced to jail and then was likely to be deported. However a lawyer from the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project in Portland will likely be successful in getting the charges dismissed and she will then be accepted into the United States under some type of "refugee status". Here's more: she is pregnant and is HIV-positive. So ten to one she will become another drain on our scarce resources as we provide for her child and treat her for her long-term illness. What's wrong with this picture?
