Deal Assumes Hispanic Student is Illegal Immigrant

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) has come under fire after making a statement that a Hispanic student attending a forum was an illegal immigrant, WGCL-TV reports.

Said Deal: "There's a fundamental problem that can only be resolved at the Congressional level and that is to deal with the issue of children, and I presume you probably fit the category, children who were brought here."

The student responded: "I'm not an illegal immigrant. I'm not. I don't know why you would have thought that I was undocumented. Was it because I look Hispanic?"
