Legal immigrant says cutting Distinguished Scholars program is misguided

May 15, 2011

I support giving better educational opportunities for all Maryland residents, legal or illegal. But does it make sense to eliminate the Distinguished Scholars program designed to help the best and the brightest legal residents of Maryland to study here, while establishing a new program designed to help the best and the brightest illegal residents to do the same?

I am a (legal) immigrant myself. The only result of such misguided policies will be more resentment toward immigrants, legal or illegal alike.
