BALTIMORE MAYOR CATHERINE PUGH was in the news recently for promising to send 3,000 school children to DC for an anti-gun march. She thought it was a great idea and was willing to fork out $100K of taxpayer dollars to fund the trip. In case you missed the crazy interview the mayor had with Laura Ingraham, we have the video below.
The problem is that Baltimore isn’t swimming in cash. The school system is broke and the murder rate is through the roof. There are plenty of things she could do with the money instead of sending kids on a field trip.
We think this is irresponsible and a total disregard for the taxpayers who live in the city of Baltimore.
Well, here’s another not-so-bright use of money by the mayor:
She plans on supplying lawyers to illegals who are facing deportation…Unreal!
Via The Blaze:
The city of Baltimore has approved a plan to dedicate $200,000 to pay for the legal expenses of illegal immigrants facing deportation.
Mayor Catherine Pugh announced the plan on March 7.
“We’re not making a decision as to their status,” Pugh said. “We’re making the decision to be supportive of individuals who live in our city.”
The plan calls for the city government to supply $100,000 in taxpayer money, which will be matched by a $100,000 grant from the nonprofit Vera Institute of Justice. The Vera Institute will also advise on which lawyers the city should hire, and supply research and technical assistance.
Mayor Pugh stepped all over Laura Ingraham:
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE MAYOR’S DECISION TO SEND KIDS TO DC:
The video below is disturbing to Americans who see what’s REALLY going on here. Can you imagine if the tables were turned and a mayor sent thousands of kids to a Trump rally? There would be outrage! Not to mention that the crime rate in the city of Baltimore is horrendous! Why not march against gun violence in your city? These people have no clue what it means to have our Second Amendment right to bear arms! Teachers need to teach them instead of shoving them on a bus to play hooky at the expense of taxpayers!
Twitter was ablaze after the announcement:
James Hasson tweeted: <em>”Baltimore schools had a $130 Million budget deficit last year and this is how they are spending taxpayer money.”</em>
Baltimore Mayor says the city is organizing 60 free bus rides to send students to DC to the March Against Gun Violence later this month. They will provide t-shirts and lunches, aiming for 3K students! Smells like Soros! Somehow, he’s behind this…somehow

THE LOCAL BALTIMORE PRESS SAYS THE BUSES ARE “FREE”…PAID FOR BY WHOM? THE TAXPAYERS!
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh announced Tuesday that the city will provide 60 free buses to send students to Washington, D.C. for a massive gun control rally later this month.
Pugh called for thousands of students to attend March For Our Lives, a rally calling for gun control legislation.
The march is planned for six weeks after the shooting that left 17 people dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
THE LEFT IS USING THESE KIDS FOR THEIR POLITICAL AGENDA: The kids have no clue…Do they know about our right to bear arms?
