New state law bans fund­ing for ‘sanc­tu­ary’ cam­puses

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

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.
