Maryland Giving Immigrants Tuition Aid

April 14, 2011
Plain English Version

Maryland is approving tuition payments to students who are illegal immigrants. The bill would grant in-state tuition to students in four-year universities in the state who graduate from high school in Maryland and then attend a community college for two years.

The students must show that they or their parents have filed Maryland tax returns for all of those years. Maryland is the 12th state pass such a law.

A big factor in passing the law was to remove undocumented students from the formula used to determine the total number of available spaces in the tuition program.

Other states are considering restricting the rights of undocumented immigrants.
