The Maryland DREAM Act passed the Maryland legislature in April 2011 and was signed by Gov. Martin O'Malley the next month. This law would allow undocumented high school students who have attended high school in Maryland to apply for in-state tuition if they are accepted to a public college in Maryland and meet other criteria – they need to have attended high school in Maryland for at least three years, and have parents who paid Maryland taxes during this period. This progressive law would make college affordable and thus attainable for a generation of young immigrants.
By signing, I pledge to vote YES to defend the Maryland DREAM Act on Nov. 6, 2012.
