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.
