The Deportation Bus Tour in Georgia
Please enter comments on this post by signing in to our guest book.
Georgia Senator Michael Williams, who’s running for the governor’s seat in that state, is embarking on what his campaign says is a “Deportation Bus Tour.” He claims in a commercial for the tour that his plan to deport immigrants will “fill this bus with illegals to send them back where they came from.”
Williams plans to drive the bus through so-called sanctuary cities.
“We’re not just going to track them and watch them roam around our state,” said Williams. “We’re going to put them on this bus and send ‘em home.”
Williams strongly supports the 287(g) program, a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act that lets state and local law enforcement agencies deliver undocumented immigrants to Immigration and Customs Enforcement when they’re arrested on non-immigration-related crimes.
The sanctuary cities Williams is traveling through include Clarkston, Decatur and Athens, Georgia – each of which limits its cooperation with federal authorities when it comes to the 287(g) program.
The back of his bus reads, “DANGER! Murderers, rapists, kidnappers, child molestors [sic], and other criminals on board” and “Follow me to Mexico.”
Williams was Georgia’s co-chair for President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and claims he played a strong role in the U.S.’s toughest immigration laws – including one that requires his state’s law enforcement agencies to notify ICE when they arrest an undocumented immigrant.
What Do You Think?
Do you support Williams or like the idea of his “Deportation Bus,” or do you find it distasteful and offensive? I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please share them on my Facebook page or on Twitter.
