TAMPA – Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach encouraged Maryland delegates Tuesday morning in their fight to pass the Dream Act Referendum on Maryland’s ballot this fall. The referendum would overturn legislation guaranteeing in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants.
“You guys are some battle-hardened Republicans and I have to say I appreciate what you do fighting the good fight,” Kobach said. “We are all watching very intently around the country on your ballot issue coming up on in-state tuition for illegal aliens.”
About 13 states have passed a version the Dream Act, but Maryland is only the second state to try to overturn that legislation, Kobach said.
