Georgia Candidate To Drive 'Deportation Bus' in Protest of Sanctuary Cities

State Senator Michael Williams is taking a "Deportation Bus Tour" to the state's sanctuary cities - that is, places where the police won't cooperate with immigration officials - to "expose how risky illegal aliens ruin local economies, cost American jobs, increase healthcare costs and lower education standards".

"Through his bus tour of sanctuary cities, William will expose how risky illegal aliens ruin local economies, cost American jobs, increase healthcare costs and lower education standards", his campaign said in a statement, which went on to list his past position as the Georgia co-chair for President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

In the newly released campaign advertisement, Williams says, "We're going to implement my 287 (g) deportation plan to fill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from". "We're going to put them on this bus and send them home". While Williams claims he is among President Donald Trump's first elected supporters, State Attorney General Casey Cagle is considered to be the GOP front-runner. The senator describes himself as "anti-political correctness, anti-liberal, anti-establishment, and pro-Georgia". The way it works, according to ICE, is that local or state law enforcement "enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), in order to receive delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions".

According to the video, the back of the bus reads "Danger! Murderers, rapists, kidnappers, child molesters and other criminals on board".

"Follow me to Mexico", it says. The Huffington Post found that noncitizens only account for 4 percent of all total prison populations in states, USA Today found that all available national crime statistics show immigrants commit fewer crimes, not more, than those born in the U.S. Even opponents of increased immigration lack evidence linking immigrants to higher crime rates.

Law&Crime has reached out to Williams for comment about the bus, but he has yet to respond.

The Trump administration expanded immigration enforcement programs in Georgia in March, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported. Counties that refuse to comply will lose state funding.

"We have 159 counties in Georgia". The tour is set to run from May 16 to May 21 with locations pending.
