Maryland Voters Pass In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Maryland voters have approved allowing illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at public colleges.

It is the state's version of the Dream Act. Maryland is the first state in the nation to approve it by popular vote.

Illegal immigrants can pay in-state rates if they attend a Maryland high school for three years and they or their parents can show they filed state income taxes during that time.

On the Dream Act, students would also have to state their intention to apply for permanent residency and register with the selective service, if they are required to do so.
