Georgia Senate bill would tweak state laws on immigration
ATLANTA (AP) - A trio of Republican state senators has sponsored legislation that would bar illegal immigrants from attending Georgia state colleges and universities and would tweak some other state laws having to do with illegal immigration.
The bill filed Thursday also adjusts some requirements governing identification requirements for applicants for public benefits laid out in last year's tough law targeting illegal immigration. It makes some requirements stricter and loosens others.
The House Higher Education Committee held a hearing last month on a bill that would bar illegal immigrants from state colleges and universities, but did not immediately hold a vote on it. The university system chancellor told committee members he believes the system's current policies regarding illegal immigrants are adequate.
