Objectors to the Dream Act must not have read it

Illegal ImmigrantsImmigration

I'm amazed by the writer who claims that extending in-state tuition to the children of illegal immigrants will do no good because they can't ever work in Maryland. He needs to read the Maryland Dream Act. One of the conditions of receiving in-state tuition is applying for citizenship. Which is the very thing that the writer complained about, namely illegal immigrants busting in line ahead of those on the pathway to citizenship.

You can imagine the fear such people have of immigrants who generally have to learn two languages to survive when one doesn't even demonstrate a reading proficiency in English.
