University System to Hold Four Public Sessions Regarding the Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act
The University System of Georgia will hold public hearings on their practice of giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens. Jan Boutwell Gonzalez, an American citizen, has contacted Lawrence Headrick, Northwest GA MCDC Chapter Director about her first hand experience in competing with illegal aliens at Dalton State College. The president of Dalton State College has given in-state tuition to 40 illegal aliens and denied Jan in-state tuition since she had lived as a resident of GA for only 359 days (six days short of the required one year residency requirement). So Jan, a U.S. citizen, has paid 4 times the tuition that an illegal alien must pay. She wants the University System to refund her tuition and apply our laws equally.
Please plan on attending one or all of the public meetings to voice your support for equal application of our laws. To speak at these meetings, you must sign up in advance for a three minute time slot. The website below has all the details on the four meetings coming up in May 2007. http://www.usg.edu/news/2007/042007.phtml
Our University System wants input on "policy interpretation", whatever that means. We need to help them interpret their policy of granting in-state tuition to illegal aliens as unlawful. The Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act will be implemented July 1, 2007. Let your voice be heard!
