Students protest Ga. university system immigration policy

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Students protested against a policy Tuesday that would require students to prove they are in the country legally before enrolling in schools within Georgia's university system.

The group known as Georgia Students for Public Higher Education rallied at Georgia State University's courtyard area and then march to the Board of Regents.

Part of the mission on the group's website states: "We believe that all people deserve affordable, quality education and secure employment, from the student who studies to the person who cleans. We are opposed to all attacks on undocumented students and believe that no student is illegal."

The Board said only one person has been denied admission because of their immigration status.
