Debate Over Dream Act Rages On

August 12th, 2011 by WCBC Radio

Although it has been petitioned to a referendum vote and has not yet become official law in the state, Maryland would become the tenth state in the nation if the Dream Act does become official. The so-called Dream Act provides some illegal immigrants the opportunity to attend college in Maryland taking advantage of in-state tuition rates. The legislation passed this year, but was almost immediately petitioned to a referendum. While opponents gathered more than the required number of signiatures to have the issue placed on next years ballot- supporters of the bill are contesting the manner in which those signatures were obtained. While the legal issues and questions are being resolved, the debate rages on- and Maryland’s situation was the subject of discussion this week on the nationally syndicated Laura Ingraham radio program.
