MD: Baltimore County Council members support illegal alien tuition petition...The majority of the Baltimore County Council plans to issue a statement as early as Thursday morning expressing support for the petition that seeks to halt a new state law giving discounted in-state tuition to illegal aliens..Republican David Marks said he has already signed the petition. Huff said he is "strongly opposed" to the bill and supports efforts to put the issue to a referendum. "I do feel it's going to have an economic impact on local jurisdictions," he said. "We depend on tuition to help fund our community colleges. Where they lack these funds, we then have to supplement, and in these very difficult economic times, tuition breaks to illegal aliens is NOT good or economical."
