Maryland DREAM Act Passes

Rate this Entry

Maryland voters approved a measure that will allow
undocumented students resident in the state to pay in state tuition at the
state's colleges and universities. The state legislature actually passed a
measure that accomplished this and that bill was signed in to law by Maryland's
governor. But anti-immigration activists succeeded in getting enough petition
signatures to force the measure on to a ballot initiative.


Governor Martin O'Malley, a Democrat, had this to say about
the measure that passed 58 to 41:


"Marylanders guided by our belief in the dignity of
every individual have chosen to make the dream of a college education a reality
for every child. In order to expand opportunity, we've chosen to hold down the
costs of college tuition for Maryland families more than any other state.


"Marylanders of all ethnic and racial backgrounds --
black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Muslim, Jewish -- came together to make this
possible, reminding us that in Maryland, our diversity is our greatest
strength."
