Maryland voters to decide on state Dream Act

In next week’s election, Maryland voters will be deciding the fate of a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants access to in-state tuition at state colleges. The bill known as the Maryland Dream Act was signed into law by Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley in May of last year, but opponents forced it onto the ballot of this year’s election. So far a federal Dream Act has failed to become law, though it was introduced into congress this term. Maryland’s measure will be the first time that a Dream Act will be decided on by popular vote.
