Georgia's five most competitive public colleges have started verifying immigration status of students before enrolling in fall semester classes. So far only one out of the more than 10,000 students granted preliminary acceptance was barred from enrolling because the student is undocumented. Obviously Georgia colleges did not have a problem of many undocumented students enrolled in classes in the first place.
Another anecdotal proof that the vast majority of these students are legal residents. Is it really worth it to add all the paperwork and administrative hassles to this process for both the students and the colleges for "catching" a 1 out of 10,000? Definitely not!
The colleges are GA Tech, UGA, Georgia college & State, and Georgia Health Sciences University. Neither of them have turned away students because of immigration status except for GA tech that turned away 3 (out of how many thousands???)
Again another example of how the immigration debate is costing hassles over nothing.
