Diploma burning planned in protest against ban on undocumented students at UGA
Online Athens ^ | April 26, 2014 | ANDRE GALLANT

Undocumented immigrant students will gather at noon Monday at the University of Georgia Arch to protest a ban that bars them from the state’s top-tier universities. Demonstrators plan to burn high school diplomas and march to the office of UGA President Jere Morehead and demand that he make a statement in support of reversing the 2010 State Board of Regents policy that keeps undocumented immigrants out of institutions like UGA, said Eduardo Samaniego of the Georgia Dreamers Alliance, one of the groups organizing Monday’s protest. Samaniego said protestors want to speak directly to Morehead and will commit “civil disobedience” in the president’s office if he does not speak with them.

For once I’d like to see a university expell students with no refunds.

Let them be ignorant and jobless sooner rather than later.

Let them burn their diplomas... they shouldn’t be here in the first place. They CANNOT get a Georgia driver’s license because they can’t prove that they are US citizens OR have a legal right to be here. If what they want is to go to ‘college’ then move to California and let those crazies pay for it

Moorehead ought to just say he will absolutely not “meet” with these marxists crook imbeciles and inform them he has a call in to the local Sheriff who will lock them up and turn them over to ICE.

They will burn diplomas the same way Kerry threw his Purple Hearts over the White House fence. Only in their mind.

setting fire to bogus high school diplomas...how very brave of them..

I hope someones nearby with a high definition video camera to capture the event.

Im betting that there are a couple of students whove printed a rather significant batch of the bogus certificates for dispersal at the “event

If i were that age I sort of try to merge with the crowd...and set fire to a copy of Obamas Birth Certificate.....

Now, if they all promised to burn their EBT and SNAP cards, I would join them and bring them all lunch...

If it’s known where these illegal aliens will congregate, why not arrest them and send them to their respective third world countries?

Is the rule of law in our country out the window? What’s happening to our country?

As Andrew Breitbart used to say, “So?”...

Who cares if they burn their HS diplomas?

If they go into the civil disobedience mode and storm the campus, I hope GA’s State and local LEOs arrest them all.

Why stop with a half-measure like burning a diploma? To really make a point they should burn themselves to a cinder.

Oh no THIS means we HAVE to give in state tuition to illegal aliens. I guess we’ll just have to give the UGA seats in the next Freshman class to the illegals and tell the “protestors” there isn’t any room for them especially now that they can’t prove they have finished high school. /s/
