Georgia gov candidate announces 'deportation bus' tour through sanctuary cities

Republican Running for Governor Really Wants to Deport People With a Bus

Republican Running for Governor Really Wants to Deport People With a Bus

The Deportation Bus is a mobile billboard spelling out the Republican Gubernatorial candidate's stance on illegal immigration.

Michael Williams, who was his state's co-chair for President Donald Trump's presidential campaign, said the tour aims to "shine a light on the dangers of sanctuary cities and the overwhelming problem of illegal immigration". "We're going to implement my 287 (g) deportation plan that's going to fill this bus with illegals and send back to where they came from", he says with a grin, before speaking about human beings who fled their countries with terms usually reserved for animals and hunting scenarios.

"I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take them home myself", he says. "We're gonna put 'em on this bus and send 'em home".

Mayor Terry and other critics worry the messages emblazoned on the bus like "Danger: Murderers, rapists, kidnappers, child molesters and other criminals on board" is unsafe rhetoric.

"If you're as exhausted as I am of politicians who do nothing but talk, and you want to see this bus filled with illegals, vote Michael Williams on May 22", he says in a new ad.

It's the kind of message you don't expect to see on a USA election campaign bus: "FOLLOW ME TO MEXICO". While by law his bus can not actually pick up immigrants and drop them off in Mexico, the 287 (g) deportation program he touts in his campaign video would allow for the delegation of immigration law enforcement from federal agencies to local law enforcement like police or sheriffs departments.

So-called sanctuary cities, local governments that limit cooperation with the feds on immigration, have become a lightning rod in the immigration debate.

Williams is one of seven Republicans competing for Governor Nathan Deal's (R) seat in the May 22 primary. "Well, this is it", said Williams. The Michael Williams deportation bus.

In his profile on Facebook - in which he describes himself as "a fearless conservative" - his campaign has put a statement explaining that his journey will start on Wednesday, May 16 and will visit "each of the most unsafe sanctuary cities of Georgia", including Clarkston, Decatur, and Athens.
