Another assault on local immigration law enforcement, specifically 287(g), is being fought in Gwinnett County, Georgia’s second largest of 159 counties. About 30 miles northeast of Atlanta, Gwinnett is one of the frontlines in the immigration law enforcement war being waged in America. Local enforcement of our immigration laws is essential in protecting our communities and sending a discouraging message to illegal aliens not to come to your community.
Section 287(g) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act authorizes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deputize selected state and local law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration law. Section 287(g) allows the DHS and law enforcement agencies to make agreements, which require the state and local officers to receive training and work under the supervision of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE provides the officers with authorization to identify, process, and—when appropriate—detain immigration offenders they encounter during their regular, daily law-enforcement activity.
Efforts to end the County Sheriff’s 287 (g) agreement with I.C.E. are in full swing and are three-pronged:
- End 287(g) in Gwinnett County
- Unseat the current Sheriff who supports 287(g)
- Silence D.A. King (D.A.), who has worked for over 16 years for immigration law enforcement.
D.A. is a tireless American military veteran who has dedicated his life to protecting our communities and our country from the inevitable chaos and decline that is the result of mass illegal immigration. He is founder of the Dustin Inman Society, dedicated to the memory of a 16-year old young man whose life was cut short by an illegal alien:
Dustin Inman was one of the un-counted thousands of Americans who have needlessly lost their lives because government in America refuses to secure American borders or enforce American immigration and employment laws.
We see it everywhere. The open borders/amnesty radicals cannot win in the court of public opinion with facts, so they want to ban and silence any and all who advocate for fair law enforcement.
Obviously, the opposition to the law includes: “Big” agriculture, various Georgia Chambers of Commerce, restaurants, and carpet mills, to name a few.
They engage in, of course, in name calling of any who want the law enforced, dubbing them as “white supremacist” and “white nationalist.” Again, they can’t win on the facts, so they resort to cheap politics and lies.
Read D.A.’s letter to the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) and please send your own comments to AJC. Visit the Dustin Inman Society blog to see the letters to the editor supporting D.A. You may know some of those who have spoken out for him.
The Gwinnett Daily Post has just run a story about support for D.A.; please add your voice.
You can also go to the Georgia Governor’s website and leave him a message about supporting the enforcement of our immigration laws. He was quite vocal about doing something about illegal immigration when he was running for governor.
Visit D.A.’s new website “Immigration Politics Georgia” (IPA), which is loaded with news about illegal immigration with plenty of links.
Please phone, email or write the old-fashioned letter to the editor supporting D.A. and immigration law enforcement.
