A Big Chance for Immigrant Students in Maryland?

On November 6, 2012, Maryland residents will vote on a ballot initiative that will allow undocumented students who have lived in Maryland, whose parents have paid taxes in Maryland, and who meet some other conditions, to pay in-state tuition fees for their higher education.

The Maryland DREAM Act, if it is able to come into force, would enable many DREAMers to attend state universities that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive. At a time when many states in the U.S. were passing anti-immigrant legislation (adding to a climate of hostility to migrants, those perceived to be migrants, and Native Americans), Maryland passed legislation in April 2011 that realized the right to equal access to education for a significant number of students.

Now, the Maryland Dream Act is in jeopardy. Let’s defend the right to education, and the Maryland DREAM Act! On November 6th, Vote ‘Yes!’ on Question 4 on the ballot. Help spread the word by sharing this graphic widely:

  1. I am getting useful tips after reading this blog,keep sharing and updating more updates always with research paper services. I can not wait to visiting this blog about education and reading better tips and methods for essay writing services.

  2. What is the point to support immigrants kids? They will grow up, got a degree and then stole the job from your own kids. They probably will cheat on exams with writing service help so please reconsider all of it.

  3. According to estimates, the total number of illegal migrants was the 11th most advanced state, but it was seventh in the country that was illegal in the percentage of the population.
