On Election Day next week, voters in Maryland will have the opportunity to decide on Maryland's DREAM ACT. Maryland's DREAM ACT, which was signed by Governor Martin O'Malley in 2011, enables an undocumented immigrant who attended a Maryland public school for at least three years (and who meet other requirements) to qualify for in-state tuition in a Maryland community college and makes her eligible for in-state tuition rate at a four-year public college or university.
Question 4 of the Maryland General Election Ballot Question allows voters to decide by popular vote on whether to approve or repeal the law. According to a Washington Post poll, Question 4 has significant support from likely voters. We'll find out next week!
