BALTIMORE, Maryland, Thurs. June 3: Two Republican lawmakers from Maryland want President George Bush, Attorney General John Ashcroft and other high-ranking federal officials to cut funding from agencies that "flagrantly" violate U.S. immigration laws.

Pat McDonough and Rick Impallaria, state representatives of Baltimore, suggest that funding be cut from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration if it issues driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants and from law-enforcement agencies that refuse to help the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency carry out its mission of deporting illegal immigrants, Washington Times reports indicate.

The two also recently submitted five bills in the 2004 General Assembly to crack down on the undocumented but none was approved. One bill called for incarcerating undocumented immigrants as soon as they are discovered, and another insanely called for U.S. residents to be punished for allowing the undocumented to use their cars while committing crimes.

A third bill focused on cracking down on foreign embassies that issue identification cards to those immigrants while the other two bills called for a study on the effect of this population on the state economy. –
