• NAACP Leader Blasts Obama’s Amnesty: ‘Our Kids Have Dreams Too’

    Bob Ross, president of the Maryland Prince George’s County NAACP, is furious about Obama’s decision to open up welfare benefits, grant drivers licenses, and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants and their children.

    Ross says Obama’s executive immigration order takes scarce resources and gives them to people who shouldn’t be here, at the expense of other law-abiding minorities.

    In an interview Monday on Laura Ingraham’s radio show, Ross explained his NAACP chapter’s plan to publicly oppose Prince George County’s initiative to create two high schools for recently immigrated illegal aliens.

    Ross called the immigration efforts ”separate but equal.”

    “$67 million—almost $68 million when you round it—spent on illegal immigrants children’s education in Maryland,” Ingraham said. “What is your reaction to that?” she asked Ross.

    “It’s a lot of money, and our resources can’t handle it here in Prince George’s County,” Ross said. “We’re fixing to lose about $68 million statewide, on the local level we’re losing about $10 million of school funding. So, I don’t know how we’re going to handle this, the cost factor.”

    The Prince George County’s immigration plan would allocate money to pay teachers to teach illegal immigrant children english.

    “Why isn’t the national NAACP not kicking up a huge public fuss on this amnesty push by the president?” Ingraham asked.

    “I can’t speak for the national” NAACP, Ross said. “Each local organization has its own charter. So on local issues– and this is a local issue–we’re fighting it based on our demographics.”

    “You have to stand up for what’s right,” Ross added. “After the Selma March and what we went through as a people, we have to continue the fight. Like I said before, we’re not going to the back of the bus again. We already been on that route.”

    “Do you think they should be sent back home?” Ingraham asked. “Or should they just be educated in all these communities, despite the cost?”

    “If they follow the process and go through the legality to remain in the country, they should remain,” Ross said. “But if the process says they have to return, then they have to return.”

    “Our kids have dreams too,” Ross noted. “I want to be real clear about that. They keep saying: the DREAMers, DREAMers, DREAMers. We have dreams also. Every child that is native-born in this country has a dream. We should not have to sacrifice for newcomers that are coming in and not followed the process.”
