Dream Act Passes in Maryland

November 7, 2012

Maryland’s Dream Act, originally passed by the state legislature in March, will send, as voters passed the measure Tuesday, 58 to 42 percent. Under the Dream Act, studentswithout legal documentation to live in the United State can be eligible to receive in-county tuition at Maryland community colleges and in-state rates at public universities. “For students, it means that they can get an education, they can figure out how to pay for college,” said Roberto Juarez, a campaign coordinator with the United Dream Network. “Especially for students finishing community college and trying to figure out how to go to a four-year college, it makes it something they can achieve; it’s no longer just a dream.”
