Bill Would Keep Undocumented Students Out of Georgia's Public Universities

Atlanta, GA - Currently 49 states let undocumented students attend public universities, but that could be about to change in Georgia.

A bill allowing the state to keep undocumented students out of public universities passed a house committee today.

Opponents say the bill would hurt the university system's reputation.

An audit shows there are 29 illegal students in the state. Currently, undocumented students pay out-of-state tuition.

The bill must now pass in both state houses and be signed by Governor Nathan Deal.
