PS, Here is the Liberal Slant, it was not 70 people, it was more like over 100 people with people outside not being able to get in. Casa De Maryland lies by stating they are not a part of the protest members. LIE
Groups opposing Dream Act meet protest
Rockville rally attended by both supporters, detractors of law
The kick-off rally by two groups opposing the Maryland Dream Act was met with protest from a group of Hispanic students in Rockville on Wednesday.
Members from both sides said they went to the rally, held at the Rockville Library, to counter the arguments presented about the act’s effect. The Maryland Dream Act was passed in 2011 and offers in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants who graduate from Maryland high schools.
More than a dozen people showed up at the rally with orange tape covering their mouths to protest the airing of the film “They Come to America,” a documentary on illegal immigration by Dennis M. Lynch. About 70 people packed the room to see the film and attend the rally.
“A lot of films like this don’t give a voice to those who are featured in them,” said Paola Ramirez, 22, of Germantown. “We’re here to provide that voice.”
