Georgia lawmaker introduced bill banning illegal immigrants from public universities
Kimberly Bennett at 12:00 AM ET

On November 17, 2010, a member of the Georgia House of Representatives introduced legislation that would ban illegal immigrants from enrolling in public post-secondary education institutions by making it one of the public benefits that require a verification of lawful presence in the US. In March 2012, the Georgia Senate passed the bill, making it the first and only state to ban illegal immigrants from public universities. The bill also clarifies requirements necessary for receiving public benefits.
