Md. version of Dream Act up to popular vote

Nov 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Daily Record

Maryland could become the first state in the nation to decide by popular vote that illegal immigrants can be eligible for in-state college tuition, if students have attended a high school in the state for three years and if they or their parents have paid state income taxes during that time, along with other requirements.

"Critics also say the measure is unfair to people who have made the effort to become U.S. citizens legally."

I have called friends who live in MD to advise them of this. When I first talked about it to one, she responded, "What's wrong with giving them instate tuition?" When I finished responding, she changed her mind! Call these people, remember, the other side is hot and heavy!!! Americans have become apathetic! Wake up! We are losing our country!!!

Don't wait until it's too late like the people in NY, etc. who did prepare for the disaster, it is happening now!!!

These students should be given in state tuition, they live in the state don't they ?
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
Don't make things more difficult than they need to be.

It has been voted down before, they just keep trying everyway they can to keep it from going to a popular vote.
Look for it to be voted down by a margin of 60 to 40.

They may live here but not legally or by invitation so NO-ONE should be given a compromise.

My Grand daughter attends James Madison University, and quite Frankly, it's a monetary concern. In State tuition is for legal students only. She know dozens of Students from out of this country that don't get any breaks in tuition, why should Latino's? They aren't from America.

The last I heard, and I hope I am wrong, was that the margin had significantly narrowed. The article attributed it in part to the fact that the "dreamers" had come out in full force politically, and that the citizen voters seemed to have lost their momentum on this one!

Please tell me I am wrong! This could have been another one of those pro illegal alien articles, written with the intent of making people feel it is no use, stay home...

Why should the only people who are not suppose to be here get the breaks?!!!
