Deportation Bus is Ready To Go

Deportation Bus
A Republican candidate in Georgia's gubernatorial race is bringing a "deportation bus tour" to sanctuary cities throughout the U.S.

Georgia Senator Michael William's premiered a commercial last 15 May promoting a bus tour that would send undocumented immigrants "back to where they came from."

"We're going to implement my 287(g) deportation plan that is going fill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from," said Williams. "We’re not just going to track them and watch them roam around our state, we’re going to put them on this bus and send them home."

A deported migrant sleeps inside a bus in front of the Salvation Army shelter in Tijuana, northwestern Mexico, during U.S. President Donald Trump's inauguration on 20 January 2017, in Tijuana, northwestern Mexico. Georgia State Senator Michael launched a video of a "deportation bus tour" to bring the bus to sanctuary cities to remove undocumented immigrants from the U.S for his campaign.

Williams was a former co-chair of President Donald Trump's campaign in Georgia. The senator describes himself as "anti-political correctness, anti-liberal, anti-establishment, and pro-Georgia." According to his emails, Williams is a big supporter of the federal 287 (g) immigration program. which allows local and state law enforcement to work together with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to arrest undocumented immigrants based on criminal charges unrelated to immigration.

The tour is set to begin in the Georgia counties of Clarkson, Decatur and Athens on 16 May, according to a press release sent by the campaign. The tour is set to run from 16-21 May with locations pending.
