In 2010, the Board of Regents approved Policy 4.1.6, which prevents undocumented students from attending one of the top five public universities in the state. Students classified as undocumented lack the documentation to prove they are a legal resident. Due to this policy, these students face many obstacles when pursuing post-secondary education.
Many students have spoken out about this issue. Aldo Mendoza is one of many activists in Athens, Georgia that fights for a change. He moved to Georgia over 15 years ago and is still not eligible to attend a top five public state university. Watch the video below to see how he has fought against this policy.
