Georgia Republican candidate for Governor bringing “deportation bus tour” to sanctuary cities
Deportation bus tour coming soon in Georgia. A Republican candidate for Governor in Georgia is bringing what he calls a “Deportation Bus Tour’ to the state’s “sanctuary cities” to tout his support for expediting deportation for immigrants in the United States illegally.
State Sen. Michael Williams’s campaign said in a press release that the tour will “expose how dangerous illegal aliens ruin local economies, cost American jobs, increase healthcare costs and lower education standards.”
Williams says in a commercial for the tour that his deportation plan will “fill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from.”
“We’re not just going to track them and watch them roam around our state,” Williams says. “We’re going to put them on this bus and send ‘em home.”
Williams, a former co-chair of President Trump’s campaign in Georgia, is a staunch supporter of the federal 287(g) immigration program, in which state and local law-enforcement agencies work closely with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to hand over immigrants without legal status who were arrested on crimes unrelated to immigration.
In the press release, Williams’s campaign praises him as “the most outspoken anti-illegal candidate in Georgia’s history.”
Sanctuary cities have been in the news with President Trump vowing to do something about illegal immigration. Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf said she is willing to go to jail to protect her sanctuary city. Interim San Francisco mayor Mark Farrell joined the insanity and said that he also is willing to go to jail to protect his sanctuary city status.
Williams is one of seven GOP candidates vying to replace Gov. Nathan Deal (R), who is approaching the end of his second term. A recent University of Georgia poll found that only about 3 percent of voters say they support Williams.
