Maryland Governor And Wannabe 2016 Presidential Candidate Martin O'Malley: Compassion Demands We Let the Surge Children Stay in America, But Not in Maryland. In Other States. States with GOP Governors.

Not in my Blue State.

From POLITICO. Notice, it's not that he doesn't want to scoop up all these darling ragamuffins; it's that he fears Angry Conservatives in Maryland will "harass" the children.

Martin O'Malley says that deporting the children detained at the border would be sending them to "certain death" -- but he also urged the White House not to send them to a facility in his own state.

Hours after the Maryland governor and prospective 2016 presidential candidate became the most prominent Democrat to criticize the White House on the issue, Domestic Policy Director Cecilia Muñoz called O'Malley to complain.

But before they hung up, O'Malley told Muñoz not to send any of the children to the facility in Westminster, Md., that the White House was looking at. It’s a conservative part of the state, he warned. The children were at risk of getting harassed, or worse, he said.

"Or worse, he said." Bear in mind he says that these kids face "certain death" -- but he says don't send them to Maryland.

They'll get worse than that in Maryland, and he's too weak a governor to keep the peace.
