Voters will decide in November if they want to allow in-state tuition for some illegal immigrants at Maryland's public colleges and universities, an Anne Arundel County judge ruled Friday.

Circuit Judge Ronald A. Silkworth rejected arguments by immigrant advocacy group Casa de Maryland and others that the law adopted by the General Assembly last year cannot be the subject of a referendum. The group's attorneys had argued that the law was an appropriations measure and therefore could not be put before voters.
Md. Dream Act goes to referendum, judge rules - Baltimore Sun

Take that! -- Casa, La Raza, MALDEF, et al. It WILL be defeated, and illegals will not have their college tuition subsidized by Maryland taxpayers.

Sorry, Dreamies.

Good.

The whole idea of illegally smuggling in children to reap giant rewards is foolish for us to allow and promote.

These children here illegally are NOT superior to those foreign students doing things the legal way and getting foreign student visas to study here.

Those foreign students pay the high end of tuition - in cash.

But here's a new twist:

The upcoming American Education Expo to be held in Dubai is expected to witness growing interest from US universities in attracting more students from the Middle East, Gulf News has reported. More than 30 US universities will be offering grants worth up to $40,000 to UAE students to pursue their higher education in the US. Scheduled to run for two days from Saturday in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the exhibition is organised by the International Student Network (ISN) and is endorsed by the US Embassy

And the student who is a US citizen gets increased tuition to pay for this.
