This week Breitbart reported on the group of four Georgia Republican House members who, along with two democrats Tran (D) and Marin (D), are pushing HB 131.
The bill is positioned as a "Workforce" bill, which sounds like a nice thing. However opponents ask why, with limited space in college classes, we would consider making it more difficult and perhaps more expensive for a U.S. citizen to attend these Colleges, while incenting non-U.S. citizens to take the seats at potentially lower cost.
Another factor would be the additional illegal aliens such a move could draw into Georgia to take advantage of such a law.
Following last week's ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, which effectively ended affirmative action in U.S. colleges, parents say that if special accommodations are considered, it should begin with those who are lawful U.S. citizens and who have worked hard to earn their grades and standing as a precursor to attending college.
Georgia residents report they are already concerned that so much resource is being spent seemingly to attract un-documented aliens, some of whom may have entered the U.S. after destroying their foreign identification to prevent discovery of their actual identities.
Border agents are on record and video showing areas near the border heavily littered with discarded and destroyed IDs from a myriad of Countries. At the same time many reports indicate that some of those entering the country may have some from prisons, suggesting a criminal history that becomes impossible to confirm without valid identification.
Perhaps the attention of these Georgia House of Representative members would be better spent seeing to the outcome improvement of Georgia schools (whose outcomes have ranked in the bottom third of schools across the nation).
Since the School Choice Bill is due to be presented again this coming legislative session, this could be seen as a more appropriate use of time for these and other Georgia Reps.
