Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is introducing legislation that would withhold federal funding from any college or university that hires illegal aliens, Breitbart News has exclusively learned.

“If colleges and universities want access to federal funding, they need to abide by federal immigration law,” Blackburn told Breitbart News.'

Specifically, Blackburn’s “Enforcing Rule of Law on Campus Act” invokes the Immigration and Nationality Act, which makes clear that it is illegal for an employer to hire an illegal alien while knowing their illegal status.
