In the last few years, with the absence of federal legislation legalizing immigrants, many states have taken it upon themselves to put into place attrition efforts banning undocumented youth from access to college. In October 2010, Georgia joined the list of states with such laws; the Board of Regents of the State approved new rules explicitly barring undocumented youth from admission into many academic public institutions. The newly adopted measures require any institution that has not admitted all academically qualified applicants in the previous two years to deny admission to, otherwise qualified, undocumented youth. The ban, which will go into effect in the fall of 2011, applies to the top 5 public institutions, including University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, Medical College of Georgia and Georgia College & State University. We, the undersigned, present this letter to ask the addresses, leaders of the nation’s academic community, to refuse to comply with the bans on education. We recognize the historical significance of these institutions; in Georgia, these universities were not integrated until 1961, the result of a long-fought struggle for freedom and racial equality. Today, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama and other states have explicit bans on undocumented immigrants from attending universities once forbidden to African Americans.
