Unfortunately HB37, the bill changing current Georgia law to penalize private postsecondary institutions who provide refuge to immigrants by establishing themselves as sanctuary campuses, was signed by the Governor yesterday.

Please call Governor Deal at 404 656 1776 and state…..Please tell Governor Deal I am very disappointed in his signing of the discriminatory anti-immigrant HB37.

Governor Deal,

I am very disappointed you signed the anti-immigrant bill HB37 yesterday.

HB37, goes to great lengths to ensure Georgia is viewed as an unwelcoming state and will remove all federal pass thru and state funding, including students losing access to the Hope Scholarship and Tuition Equalization Grants, from private universities such as Agnes Scott and Emory placing an undue hardship on both the university community and the immigrant community.

I welcome all newcomers, including refugees and immigrants, to Georgia and to my community and expect the state legislature to reflect those same ideals.

Thank You,

Your Name
