US: Underground university for undocumented immigrants

Undocumented students are being forced to study in secret because they are being banned from public universities.

    Undocumented students in the US state of Georgia say they are being forced to study in secret because of a law that bans them from the state's top universities.

    Politicians say the rule sends a strong message that illegal immigrants should not be able to attend public colleges, but activists have decided to fight back with an underground university of their own.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Atlanta.
