      POL AIMS TO OUST FOREIGNERS FROM STATE

      Bay State students who hail from seven terrorism-sponsoring nations
      would be summarily ejected from public colleges and universities
      under a new Republican bill that sparked accusations of a witch hunt
      from Islamic activists and civil libertarians.

      "If Saddam wants to send Uday or Qusay over to go to U Mass-Amherst,
      I would like to say we don't accept them," said House Minority Leader
      Bradley H. Jones, who filed the controversial legislation.

      The bill, which faces an uphill battle through the House and Senate,
      would deny a taxpayer-funded education to citizens of Iraq, Iran,
      Syria, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Sudan...

      Modeled after a similar proposal in Indiana, Jones' bill would ban
      any new state college enrollees from the blacklisted countries - and
      force existing students to finish the semester and pack their bags.

      Students could avoid being kicked to the curb by disavowing their
      homeland and converting to United States citizenry, Jones (R-North
      Reading) said...

      Islamic activists protested that the bill smacks of an anti-Muslim
      witch hunt...
