The Dream Act encourages legal aliens to become illegal
The Dream Act, or SB167, grants tax funded tuition to illegal immigrants through the in-state tuition program in Maryland. Interestingly, the bill explicitly specifies illegal immigrants for the benefit, but not legal aliens (or in the bill language “nonimmigrant aliens”). Non-immigrant aliens would include persons from outside the United States who are here on student visas, as an example. See full article here, including links.
