RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina's university and community college systems would no longer be allowed to enroll illegal immigrants in legislation filed by some House Republicans.
The bill filed Tuesday would overturn policies by the University of North Carolina system and state community college system. Students can attend these schools now only if they graduated from a U.S. high school and pay out-of-state tuition.
The bill would have exceptions for students who already are enrolled at a campus so they can complete a program or for students who are dually enrolled in a high school or secondary school.
The bill's primary sponsors are Reps. George Cleveland of Jacksonville and Chris Whitmire of Rosman.
