With more than 12 boxes of petitions, Republican delegates in Maryland are pushing to have the state’s DREAM Act brought to a public vote in 2012.
The boxes of signed petitions were placed out the entrance to the Maryland Secretary of State’s office in an attempt to get Senate Bill 167 on the ballot for a statewide referendum. SB167 has become known as the Maryland DREAM Act.
The Republican delegates are hoping to see the DREAM Act come up for a vote in an attempt to be rid of it.
“We have rules,” Republican Del. Neil Parrott said. “We need to enforce our immigration laws, and this bill tries to skirt around those.”
