The Archdioceses of Washington and Baltimore and the Diocese of Wilmington, Delaware, have established a task force to defend Maryland's recently passed DREAM Act. Under the law, children of undocumented immigrants who came to this country as children and who have attended Maryland schools for three years would be able to pay in-state tuition at Maryland's public universities, instead of the much higher out-of-state tuition they would currently have to pay. Opponents of the measure have acquired enough signatures to put the issue to a referendum in 2012. The new Catholic task force aims to educate Catholics and others about the law and to urge support for the measure.
