Immigrants are an important part of the fabric of American society. While immigration legislation needs to be addressed at a federal level, the state of Georgia should stop passing hateful legislation that promotes racial profiling, bullying, and further marginalization of immigrants in Georgia. Especially, undocumented students who were brought here as children should have the opportunity to further their education at public colleges, universities, and technical schools in Georgia, but some Georgia legislators want to take that away. Instead of embracing what these hard-working students have to contribute, those legislators want to cut off their opportunity to attend higher education, which would have detrimental effects in K-12 schools across the state, as well as negative social and economic repercussions.

      Because my friends should be able to get a higher education after High School if they have worked hard and want to continue their studies

      Its not fair that many undocumented students have to pay out of state tuition,but not letting them the chance to attend a Georgia university/college too? that is just terrible. I feel sick of my own country because of such laws. And living such a state makes everything even worse. Let THEM have a CHANCE to succeed along with EVERYONE else!

      It is often much harder and takes much longer to become a "legal" immigrant then people realize. Until we have a good and fair immigration policy, we should do what is best for all the people that live here rather than making things worse by passing laws like this one that are cruel and benefit no one. Please sign this petition.
