Illegal immigrants would be barred from attending Georgia's public colleges under legislation that passed a key House committee Monday.The Republican-led House Judiciary Non-Civil Committee passed Senate Bill 458 after about two hours of discussion. The measure passed the GOP-controlled Senate on March 5.
Sen. Barry Loudermilk, a Republican from Cassville and the lead sponsor of the bill, spoke in favor of his bill.
One of the arguments you may hear today, Loudermilk told the committee, is what is wrong about allowing someone who may be here illegally to take one of the seats in one of our colleges or universities, if they just want to better themselves and they want to become a productive member of our society. Well, that is a good argument to make. However, it is a federal crime to hire someone who is illegally in this country.
Loudermilk paused several times to consult anti-illegal immigration activist D.A. King, who sat by the senators side during the hearing. King is president of the Georgia-based Dustin Inman Society, which advocates enforcement of U.S. immigration and employment laws.
Most of the people who spoke during a hearing on the bill Monday opposed the legislation, including Suttiwan Cox, the founder and principal of the Path Academy charter school in Brookhaven, where most of the students are Hispanic.
It is better to have educated unemployed people than non-educated unemployed people, she said. Why dont you get them to work and ask them to pay back student loans?

AJC...yet another publication too cowardly to call them what they are, ILLEGAL aliens.
>> “What are you going to do with hundreds or thousands of kids who [finish] k-12 and then cannot go to college and then walk the street. They end up robbing you. And what are you going to do? You are going to build more jails instead of building children? <<
False dilemma. - They do not belong in K - 12 either.
That’s always the scare tactic that is used. The solution isn’t easy or just one thing, but it starts by cutting off the incentives, then not allowing pre-K illegal children to go to school in the first place.
My sister teaches school in New Mexico. The middle school she taught at was a stone throw from the border. You could see Mexico from the window. There were kids who walked across the border everyday to attend school, and while there go free breakfast and lunch too. It needs to stop.
A man I work with said that in El Paso, there are school busses that pick illegal immigrant kids up and bus them to school where they partake in free edcation and of course, free breakfast, lunch and even knapsacks with free food to take home.
When he complained at a school board meeting, he was called a racist.
As far as I am concerned, you breech them, you teach them.
IIRC it is by judicial fiat alone that illegals nationwide must be enrolled in K-12 in the first place.
Maybe if the welcome mat was pulled, illegals would self deport.
What are you going to do with hundreds or thousands of kids who [finish] k-12 and then cannot go to college and then walk the street. They end up robbing you. And what are you going to do? You are going to build more jails instead of building children? —>>>>>>> Middle class is booming in a changing Mexico
A new image of the overscheduled soccer parent shopping at Costco is emerging.QUERÉTARO, Mexico A wary but tenacious middle class is fast becoming the majority in Mexico, breaking down the rich-poor divide in a demographic transformation that has far-reaching implications here and in the United States.
Although many Mexicans and their neighbors to the north still imagine a country of downtrodden masses dominated by a wealthy elite, the swelling ranks of the middle class are crowding new Wal-Marts, driving Nissan sedans and maxing out their Banamex credit cards.
“As hard as it is for many of us to accept, Mexico is now a middle-class country, which means we don’t have any excuse anymore. We have to start acting like a middle-class country,” said Luis de la Calle, an economist, former undersecretary of trade in the Mexican government and the co-author of a new report called “Mexico: A Middle Class Society, Poor No More, Developed Not Yet.”
The new stereotype is no longer an illegal immigrant hustling for day labor outside a Home Depot in Phoenix. The new Mexican is the overscheduled soccer dad shopping for a barbecue grill at a Home Depot in booming cities like Querétaro.
No reason many cannot return to Mexico and do the same. Having a high school education would be a plus there
Sure puts a damper on plans to grant amnesty for attending college.
Of course he was called racist. It’s the pot calling the kettle black. The Progressives/Democrats/Lefties have no idea how wrong they are. They aren’t about free speech, nor discussion. The Marxist plan is to ingrain themselves into the five sectors. If I remember the sectors correctly, they are: 1)education, 2)entertainment, 3) government, 4)financial, 5) transportation.
Darn shame they can’t see that charity starts at home.
