Georgia sheriffs say “no” to compliance with state law and Gov. Kemp still silent on illegal immigration. We support and encourage a primary challenge
News: Governor Brian Kemp still silent on Georgia’s illegal immigration crisis. Primary opponent needed.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp presented his State of the State address yesterday – we didn’t watch it but the liberal AJC reports that he didn’t mention illegal immigration. Again.
“This year, there was no talk of gun rights expansions, new crackdowns on illegal immigration or other base-pleasing initiatives” says the liberal AJC.
Reminder: According to the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than is Arizona. According to the anti-enforcement Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than green card holders.Georgians are being hurt, drugged, robbed, kidnapped, raped and killed by illegal aliens while Kemp is defiantly silent on all of this but boasts of being “number one for business…” .
Although he stayed far away from any talk of actual enforcement of the state’s E-Verify laws or laws intended to prevent illegal aliens from accessing public benefits, in 2018 Kemp campaigned on detailed promises of legislation and action to address ‘sanctuary cities’ and criminal alien crime. We call it the “#BigTruckTrick.”
At least two Georgia sheriffs (Cobb and Gwinnett) have promised to end the life-saving 287(g) program and also to not report illegal aliens who make it into the sheriff’s jails to ICE. The latter is a direct violation of longstanding state law.
“What we will not be doing is notifying ICE of anybody’s immigration status in the jail or any of our facilities…” Newly sworn Gwinnett County Sheriff Keybo Taylor, January 1, 2021 as reported by the Associated Press.
Gov. Kemp is defiantly silent, as is the state Attorney General.
In the interest of the rule of law, jobs for legal workers, public safety and commonsense, the Dustin Inman Society encourages and supports the idea of a viable, pro-enforcement primary opponent for Governor Brian Kemp in 2022.
