Md. high court gets it right on Dream Act

Hooray for Maryland's high court ("Maryland's high court allows Dream Act to stay on ballot," June 13)! I'm sure CASA de Maryland will pull out all the stops to get this defeated, but considering that double the number of needed signatures were obtained, I'm not so sure they'll succeed. And no, my cheering the court's decision doesn't make me racist; it makes me someone who believes in the law. The term "illegal" means that these folks are not entitled to the rights and privileges of our citizens and those who have followed the rules to enter the country through the front door.
