Just when it seemed that Georgia was coming to grips with the damage caused by HB 87, the state’s Arizona-inspired anti-immigrant law, some lawmakers are again attempting to rush through new measures that would further marginalize and exclude immigrants from our community.

SB 458 is moving quickly through the state legislature and includes two especially troubling provisions. Onewould ban undocumented students from all public universities and colleges in Georgia, even though they are paying out of state tuition. The stakes are high in that many of these exemplary youth will either be forced out of the state to pursue schooling elsewhere or abandon their dreams altogether.
