Reasons You Should Call
- 15,359 foreign students enrolled in Georgia colleges and universities for the 2010-2011 school year, 4.4 percent increase over the previous year.
- S.B. 458 strengthens current laws concerning illegal aliens. It is, simply, a logical way to (a) clarify state law aimed at illegal immigration, a method to (b) streamline the eligibility process for public benefits, especially college and university enrollment, as well as (c) increase national and state security to combat the wrongful issuance of foreign passports. In addition, it would reinforce 2006 laws written to (d) protect our publicly funded college and Tech School classroom seats for real immigrants and U.S. citizens.
- Illegal aliens rallied against it at the Capitol. This week’s rally call reminded the illegal aliens that S.B. 458 (a) would remove the authority of the Chancellor and Board of Regents to make student acceptance policy and (b) prohibit students from entering college if they cannot produce legal status documents. Also, it reminded them that (c) illegal aliens currently enrolled and paying out-of-state tuition could not re-enroll.
The rally/press invitation directed them to www.acluga.org for the ACLU analysis of S.B. 458 and http://www.usg.edu/chancellor/speeches for “the excellent opposition comments of the University System Chancellor.”
Questions: Do illegal alien students now attending college plan to return to their native country when they graduate or do they plan to stay in the U. S. illegally?
Note: Someone should tell them that a college diploma will not change their citizenship status.
