New state law bans funding for ‘sanctuary’ campuses
ATLANTA | Private colleges that don’t cooperate with federal immigration authorities would lose state funding for scholarships and research under a new Georgia law.
Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed the measure on Thursday.
The measure is expected to have no immediate impact since no colleges in Georgia have embraced so-called “sanctuary” policies.
Students at several metro Atlanta universities did call for changes following President Trump’s election.
Lawmakers in Alabama, Indiana and Pennsylvania have introduced similar bills.
