(Undated) — Opponents of Maryland’s “DREAM Act” to offer in-state tuition to some illegal immigrants, say they are on track to submit a combined 100-thousand signatures by tomorrow to put the issue to a referendum vote. According to the “Washington Post,” state elections official have certified most of the 56-thousand signatures needed to suspend the law and send it to voters in November 2012. Delegate Neil Parrott, who strongly opposes the measure, says it was a “highly divisive bill” with bipartisan opposition, that barely passed. He says it is important to allow the residents of Maryland to have the final say. If the effort to repeal the tuition law is successful, it is expected to draw court challenges.
