For young Md. immigrants, a path out of the shadows
They call themselves “shadows” — young Maryland residents brought to this country as children by their parents.
They worked hard. They excelled in our public schools. They want to go to college so they can be more productive members of our workforce. They do not ask for a free ride. Yet they remain shadows because their parents came without immigration papers. The Maryland Dream Act would bring these young people into daylight.
