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.

    Finally, a state where the elected officials have the B---S to stand up for their citizens. Why should taxpayers help to support people who should not be in their state period. Although they may pay out-of-state tuition (probabaly with welfare money), it does not cover all their expenses. Tax money by the 100's of 1000's of dollars also go to support higher education. I believe that these undocumented should be reported to the authorities and deported, along with all of thier relatives. But what do I know, I am only a TAXPAYER.
