Students push for Dream Act

BALTIMORE -  

One of the questions on the ballot this year is the Maryland Dream Act.

It would help some undocumented immigrants to go college at the in-state discounted rate.

A local group of high school students are taking to the streets on Saturday, knocking on doors and hoping to gain support for the Dream Act.

Even though they can't vote, they still feel the passion to act.

"Our students are very passionate about the Dream Act because they believe, and we believe, that every child in Maryland deserves a high quality education," says  Zeke Cohen, Executive Director of the Intersection.

Opponents of the measure say illegal immigrants should not be allowed to pay in-state tuition because they're not legal citizens.
