They either need to be a state or part of a state. They need representation

as a state. Or at least let them have a representative and allow them a vote for Maryland's senatorial races. If they can't be a state, should they become part of Maryland again?

You're writing off 700,000 people, many of whom are fire, police, medical workers, teachers, hospitality, recreation, airport, clergy, construction, food service, etc and not fed employees. Many fed government workers live in Maryland or Virginia. Much of DC are DC workers or work in Maryland or Virginia.

They are Americans and deserve to live like other Americans with representation.

I get it, most Pubs don't want them as a state because they would surely vote Democrat, but that doesn't mean they are not Americans. If Republicans don't want them to become a state (for political reasons), then they should push for them to be absorbed into Maryland.

It is a tough situation, but you're argument isn't very convincing.
