After Criticizing White House Over Unaccompanied Minors, Martin O'Malley Said Don't Send Them to Maryland Site

After his strong criticism of the Obama administration's plans to return thousands of young undocumented migrants back to Central America, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley asked a top White House official that the children not be sent to a site that was under consideration in his home state, sources familiar with the conversation said.

"He privately said 'please don't send these kids to Western Maryland,'" a Democratic source told CNN. The heated discussion between O'Malley and White House domestic policy adviser Cecilia Munoz occurred during a phone call late Friday evening, sources familiar with the conversation added.

A potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, O'Malley surprised some in his party when he sharply criticized a White House proposal to give new legal authorities to the Department of Homeland Security to expedite the deportation of the unaccompanied minors and their families.

“We are not a country that should turn children away and send them back to certain death,” O’Malley said last week at a National Governors Association meeting in Nashville.

Instead, the governor urged the administration to show compassion toward the children, describing some of the facilities where the young detainees are being kept as "kennels."

“Through all of the great world religions we are told that hospitality to strangers is an essential human dignity,” O’Malley said.

Hours after making those remarks, O'Malley expressed concerns to Munoz about a proposal under consideration by the Department of Health and Human Services to convert a former Army Reserve Center in Westminster, Maryland to house the children.

Someone needs to ask why, if America is no more exceptional than any other nation (according to the president), why aren’t these illegals sent back from where they came....back to their own equally exceptional country.

LOL, it’s the NIMBY stuff. It’s OK to keep them as long as he doesn’t have to deal with it in his state.

Pelosi wanted to take all of them home, but she can’t take all 60,000 of them because she only has room for 60 in her mansion, so she did not take any of them.

O’Malley really thinks he has a chance to be president? That's very funny and quite delusional.

I am shocked that MO’M didn’t send the disease-ridden illegals to Westminster, it’s the county seat of the most conservative county in the state.

O’Malice’s criticism of Obama is racially based.

Obviously, this LIB freak is a racist for resiting the dictates of Clown Prince nobama. Where did he get this hatred? Was he beaten (or molested) as a child?

Don’t merely send them to Maryland - make them O’Malley’s legal dependents, via executive decree. After all, objecting would be treasonous, wouldn’t it?

A senior O'Malley administration official acknowledged the governor's comments last Friday irritated senior White House officials, prompting the call from Munoz to O'Malley.

So now we know who's been calling up and threatening the Rat Congressmen who're bucking the Obama regime on this.

Considering that the electorate was dumb enough to send 0 back to the WH in 2012, if Owe’Malley gets the nom, there is a good chance he will become Prez.

There was a now-abandoned plan to house some of them at a facility in Westminster.

Yes, a now-unused former Army Reserve building. I lived in Westminster for about 15 years and am glad my friends and former neighbors will not have this particular load of illegals dumped on them. There are already plenty there!
