    Students protest immigration bill

    ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

    Undocumented students said they will continue to protest any bills that could crack down on illegal immigrants.

    One bill in particular, HB 59, proposed by Rep. Tom Rice, a Republican from Norcross, would ban all illegal immigrants from attending higher education schools in the state.

    "We have been affected with HB 87, and this is just a complete insult," said undocumented student Georgina Perez. "We already have to pay out of state tuition, we are already banned from the top five universities, there is no need for HB 59."

    Undocumented students like Gustavo Madrigal said it is not their fault they were brought to this country illegally and should not be penalized.

    "I was brought here when I was 2 years old, now I am 20," Madrigal said. "Education should be about merit, it shouldn't be about undocumented status or socioeconomic status. We are there in schools working hard and when I am turned down to UGA and Georgia State solely because of my undocumented status that is wrong."

    The bill is currently in the House and has not gone any further.

    On Tuesday, the students protested a meeting with the Higher Education Department, even though the bill was not on the agenda.

    Madrigal said he wants legislators to know they are watching what bills are passed and will continue to show up to protest.

    "We are going to fight, we are not going to let this go," Madrigal said.

    Rep. Pedro Marin, a Democrat from Duluth, said they will propose legislation this week to repeal HB 87, the immigration bill that passed into law last May.

    "This law is causing an economic downturn for Georgia, and we need to make sure we make this great stay grow and be viable," Marin said.

    These are young adult illegal foreign nationals that have already been a burden to the public for their free education to this point. They should go home to go to college, it will make them more well rounded. They can consider their first 12 years of a free education as studying abroad.

    No, what IS causing economic downturn across our country is the burden illegal aliens place upon the legal taxpaying citizens who foot the bill on their behalf from everything like public school education, to emergency medical care, to government assistance, to........

    Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist"........

    Unfortunately, no. I don't think it will ever sink in.

    Especially not when the illegal alien Aunt of the President of the United States says that we "owe her citizenship." And not when the illegal alien drunk-driving Uncle of the President of the United States smirks after he is arrested and says he wants to "call the White House."

    Yeh merit my foot, what about all the scholarships and grants from their activist groups?

    You meet one demand and then there is always another demand. Just look at California first it was instate tuition then it was Financial Aid.
