Anti-Immigration Legislation

As you are probably aware, in the waning hours of the legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed Arizona-like anti-immigration legislation. As an "ethnic studies" unit at the flagship institution in the University System of Georgia, the faculty of the Institute of Native American Studies felt it was important to act. Reacting quickly, the faculty unanimously endorsed/signed a letter to the governor of Georgia, protesting and urging him to veto the bill.

We harbor nor illusion that this will have any effect or that Gov. Deal will not sign the legislation. Therefore, until the courts act or this is otherwise resolved, we have curtailed our activities involving persons from outside of Georgia. The only such events we are scheduling are those which have received funding from outside INAS's budget which will disappear unless the event is held this coming year or which have otherwise been committed. In addition, we are notifying all invitees of the situation and asking them to consider their participation.

This is an unfortunate turn of events. We hope it will be short-lived, but INAS is committed to doing whatever we can to resist participating in what we consider an unfair, immoral, and unconstitutional situation.
