You might recall that earlier this year, Governor Martin O'Malley signed into law the DREAM Act, which among other things, puts the children of illegal immigrants (by the way - that makes the kids illegal immigrants too) on the same status as children of Maryland citizens when it comes to college admission. I've posted quite a bit on it; here's a list of my posts. You'll recall that a number of good, concerned Maryland citizens petitioned the measure to the ballot.
Sadly, but none to surprisingly, the progressive-influenced Maryland Catholic Conference not only failed to support our efforts, but they outright trash-talked us for exercising our rights as citizens. Moreover, CASA and some other cabals tried to stop the petition on various specious grounds. Well, comes now the news that their arguments were so flimsy that they were starting to collapse on themselves From Help Save Maryland we read that CASA has withdrawn a significant portion of their complaints. Thus it looks like next November, each Maryland voter will have the opportunity to make his/her voice heard on this important matter.
