In May 2011, Maryland passed the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act and became the eleventh state in the nation to grant undocumented students in-state tuition at state institutions of higher learning. The Act has been challenged by a petition drive calling for a referendum on the law in November 2012. In August, Casa de Maryland, a non-profit organization devoted to advancing the rights of Latino and Latina immigrants, challenged the legality of the petition drive.
This Forum will address the significance of the Dream Act for Latin American immigrants and for the people of Maryland in general as well as the relevance of the Act for local and national discussions on immigration. Click here for the facebook event.
