Regents ban illegal immigrants from some Ga. colleges | ajc.com
Illegal immigrants can no longer attend the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech and other academically competitive public colleges, starting next fall.
The State Board of Regents voted Wednesday to prohibit illegal immigrants from attending any college that has rejected academically qualified applicants for the past two academic years because of a lack of space or other issues.
The vote means Georgia will join South Carolina as the only states banning illegal immigrants from public colleges. South Carolina bans these students from all public colleges, while Georgia’s rules will apply to some campuses.
