Georgia to Screen Colleges for Illegal Aliens

On Wednesday, June 9, the Georgia State Board of Regents approved two measures aimed at ensuring that illegal alien students do not receive in-state tuition rates when attending Georgia state colleges. The Regents’ actions came in response to a wave of controversy that was set off across the state when it was discovered that Jessica Colotl, a Kennesaw State University Student, was an illegal alien receiving the in-state tuition rate. Illegal aliens are allowed to attend public post-secondary institutions in Georgia, but they are required to pay out-of-state tuition rates. (<A href="http://www.ajc.com/news/regents-order-colleges-to-545170.html">Atlanta Journal Constitution, June 9, 2010).

The two measures approved by the Board of Regents will (1) prevent any state university president from granting in-state tuition waivers to illegal alien students and (2) require Georgia state colleges to review all of their students admitted for the fall semester “to determine whether any [illegal alien] students are receiving, or about to receive, a state, local, or federal benefit prohibited by federal or state law.” (University System of Georgia Press Release, June 9, 2010) The Board also established a new committee of regents and college presidents that will “explore how best to check residency and citizenship of all students who apply to the state’s 35 colleges and universities.” The committee will report its recommendations to the rest of the Board by October of this year. (WRCBTV, June 9, 2010).

Colotl lost some sympathy when she played up status as a college student but people here weren't happy that she was paying in-state tuition. If she hadn't been such a media magnet there wouldn't have been this push to make illegals pay more. She screwed the very people she wanted to help.
