Maryland Ballot Language On DREAM Act

From Help Save Maryland, here's the official language that will appear on the Maryland ballots.

"Undocumented immigrants"!  If I'm ever caught driving without my driver's license, can I just tell the nice police officer that I'm merely an "undocumented driver"?  Fat chance!  So why the double-standard here?

Question 4
Referendum Petition
Public Institutions of Higher Education - Tuition Rates (Ch. 191 of the 2011 Legislative Session)

Establishes that individuals, including undocumented immigrants, are eligible to pay in-state tuition rates at community colleges in Maryland, provided the student meets certain conditions relating to attendance and graduation from a Maryland high school, filing of income taxes, intent to apply for permanent residency, and registration with the selective service system (if required); makes such students eligible to pay in-state tuition rates at a four-year public college or university if the student has first completed 60 credit hours or graduated from a community college in Maryland; provides that students qualifying for in-state tuition rates by this method will not be counted as in-state students for purposes of counting undergraduate enrollment; and extends the time in which honorably discharged veterans may qualify for in-state tuition rates.
