SALISBURY, Md. - Along with the next President of the United States, local voters will also decide wether or not to approve the Maryland Dream Act.
The legislation would allow children of undocumented immigrants to be eligible for in-state tuition at Maryland's higher learning institutions. On Wednesday night Salisbury University hosted a forum to better educate voters on this issue.
On the forum panel was Maryland Delagates Ana Sol Gutierrez and Patrick McDonough, CASA de Maryland Political Director Kim Propeack and Federation for American Immigration Reform Communications Director Bob Dane.
In order to qualify for the DREAM act immigrants would be required to meet a strict criteria --- including arriving in the U-S before the age of 16 and obtaining a U-S high school diploma or educational equivalent.
