In an effort to appeal to conservative voters, a Republican candidate in Georgia's gubernatorial race has unveiled what he calls the "Deportation Bus Tour". "We don't have to wait for anything", Williams said on Breitbart News Saturday.
Instead, his policies will "fill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from".
In the related campaign video above, Williams can be seen deboarding a converted school bus, professionally redone in grey and white paint, displaying a government-agency-like-seal, and vehicle lettering with phrases like "Deportation Bus", "Follow Me to Mexico", and "Danger!"
State Senator Michael Williams said he is taking a firm stand on immigration reform, but it's the way he is going about it that has some folks up in arms.
"Through his bus tour of sanctuary cities, William will expose how unsafe 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.
"It's not gonna be one of those pansy political bus tours", he says. There's little disputing that, now that we've seen the Deportation Bus. "If they have complete disrespect for our country and our laws we need to put them on that bus and send them home", Williams said. "Murderers, Rapists, Kidnappers, Child Molesters, and Other Criminals on Board". All you have to do is take a look at his bus that says, "Fill this bus with illegals vote Michael Williams!". "The Michael Williams 'Deportation Bus, '" he continued.
Implement the 287 (g) Deportation Program statewide. Without 287 (g), we have no way of knowing when illegals are committing crimes and being sent back into our communities.
Law&Crime has reached out to Williams for comment about the bus, but he has yet to respond.
However, since the beginning of the year, the Georgia Senate has approved measures to facilitate deportation procedures through the SB 452, which "would require local law enforcement and court officials in Georgia report to USA immigration enforcement if they learn a suspect is in the country illegally", according to wabe.org.
