Thanks to the powerful presence and testimony of many educators, students, and other conscious Georgians, including immigration attorneys, the committee Chair in the Georgia House declared HB 59 to be suspended. HB59 was the bill proposed by anti-immigration Rep. Rice to deny any post-secondary education for undocumented students.
The good news of the day is that no vote was taken regarding this bill.
This is a great victory and we are so happy this is dead (at least for right now)!
