Maryland DREAM Act
The Maryland DREAM Act allows certain high school graduates who are undocumented immigrants to qualify for the lowest tuition rates at their public colleges and universities. The Maryland DREAM Act became law on December 6, 2012 and applies to all future semesters thereafter. The law applies in all 24 jurisdictions in Maryland, including the city of Baltimore.

University of Baltimore Immigrant Rights Clinic
Under faculty supervision, the students serve clinic clients in a variety of matters, from written filings for crime survivors (domestic violence, trafficking and other crimes) that are submitted to the Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, to asylum and other matters that are heard in Baltimore’s immigration court. Students may also individually handle less complicated immigration matters, such as renewing employment authorization documents, extending temporary protected status, or filing for citizenship.
Immigrant Legal Resource Center
The mission of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) is to work with and educate immigrants, community organizations, and the legal sector to continue to build a democratic society that values diversity and the rights of all people.
In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, millions of documented and undocumented immigrants face increased uncertainty around their status in the United States. Immigrant rights organizations and leaders across the country have banded together and pooled resources to help immigrants and their allies obtain the current best-known information and guidance.
