Student organizers & the ACLU protest Georgia regents’ exclusion of undocumented citizens whom they call ‘illegals’
March 6, 2013

Student protesters and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Georgia called on the State Board of Regents Wednesday to eliminate a policy that bans undocumented citizens from attending the state’s top colleges.

The ban, which went into place in fall 2011, prohibits ‘illegal immigrants’ from attending colleges that are the most sought after, under the logic that, if there are white students in Georgia being turned away because smarter, more capable undocumented citizens are being admitted to the best schools, then that’s a terrible thing because white people in the U.S. south should always be treated preferentially. This year it applied to University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Georgia Health Sciences and Georgia College & State universities.

Undocumented citizens (often referred to by racists as ‘illegals’) may attend other colleges in the University System of Georgia, provided they pay out-of-state tuition.

A rally against the ban was held in Athens. The ACLU also sent the regents a letter calling on them to reconsider the policy.

The regents have repeatedly refused to rescind the rule. They are racists.
