Fox News Baltimore Promotes Anti-Marriage Equality Petition, Washington Times Promotes Anti-Immigrant Cause

UPDATE: Given that Fox Baltimore has remedied the controversial website links, we have removed the links to contact their advertisers.

Maryland Juice is amazed to see that mainstream media publications are now blatantly biased. A reader has forwarded us a shocking screencap of's website. Indeed, WBFF Fox 45 has placed a direct link to the anti-marriage equality referendum petition on their homepage. There is no link to the pro-marriage equality side, no news, no explanation -- simply a direct link to the haters' petition.

A second Maryland Juice reader has forwarded us an email blast that the Washington Times recently sent to their email list, where they send subscribers a link to contact their legislators to oppose "illegal alien benefits."

Urge Your State Legislators to Stop Illegal Aliens from Receiving Public Benefits

Rampant illegal immigration continues to be an enormous financial burden on American taxpayers. U.S. citizens and legal residents in all 50 states continue to foot the bill for public services received by illegal aliens. In fact, public services to illegal aliens costs state and local governments around $85 billion a year! This is money directly from our pockets!

Giving welfare benefits to illegal aliens only encourages these individuals to stay in the U.S., and even encourages more people to enter illegally. More must be done by your state legislature to ensure that public benefits in your state only go to the citizens and legal residents who need them. Please don't delay. Send this critical message to your state legislators today, urging them to do more to protect vulnerable U.S. citizens and legal residents from illegal aliens. 

This is a completely free service. There is no cost to you.


Dear (Your State Legislators Will Appear Here),
Far too much money is spent on providing illegal aliens with welfare benefits. The law is clear on this matter: illegal aliens are not entitled to non-essential federal, state, or local welfare benefits. With this in mind, I ask that you propose legislation to cut off this flow when the legislature reconvenes.

Currently, states and localities spend about $85 billion each year on benefits for illegal aliens. During this same time period, states and localities only bring in $4 billion in tax revenues from illegal aliens. These numbers just don't add up. Also, the people that claim that illegal aliens are "documentless" individuals who pay their taxes and don't wish to leech off taxpayers are either fools or are just plain lying.

Americans typically need welfare benefits because they've hit a rough patch. Illegal aliens typically take welfare benefits simply because they're there. The more benefits that are illegally taken by illegal aliens, the less benefits there are for Americans in need. I see a problem with this and I hope you do as well.
