Maryland Question 4 would approve legislation that offers in-state tuition rates at community colleges to undocumented immigrants, a sort of statewide DREAM Act. To be eligible for the in state tuition, the student would have to attend three years of Maryland high school and apply to become a resident. The student, or his or her guardian, would also be required to file state tax returns. State legislatures in both Illinois and California have already passed state-wide DREAM Acts.
In Montana, a vote on a state statute would require that applicants for state services present proof of citizenship. The ballot language asks voters whether they support “an act denying certain state-funded services to illegal aliens.”
