Georgia gov candidate announces ‘deportation bus’ tour through sanctuary cities

A Republican candidate in the Georgia governor’s race announced Tuesday that he is taking a “deportation bus” tour through the state’s sanctuary cities as part of his campaign to highlight the dangers of illegal immigration.

Michael Williams, a country senator and a former Georgia co-chair for the Trump campaign, is running in the Republican primary race and promising to “expedite the expulsion process and send a clear message to illegal communities that they are not greeted in Georgia.”

“If you’re as tired as I am of legislators who do nothing but talk, and you want to see this bus filled with illegals, referendum Michael Williams on May 22, ” he says in a new ad.

According to a press release, he will use the tour to “expose how dangerous illegal aliens ruin local economies, expense American jobs, increase healthcare expenses, and lower education standards.”

The bus, featuring slogans on the back such as “Follow Me to Mexico” and “Danger! Murderers, Rapists, Kidnappers, Child Molestors, and Other Offenders on Board, ” is the latest move by Republican candidates to take a hard line on illegal immigration, employing rhetoric similar to President Trump’s.

“We’re not just going to way them, or watch them wander around our country. We’re going to put them on this bus, and send them home, ” Williams tells in the ad.

Brian Kemp, who also is running in the Georgia race, last week promised to personally “round up criminal illegals” in his truck.


Sitting in a Ford F3 50, Kemp, the current Republican secretary of state, said, “I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take them home myself.”

“Yep, I just said that, ” Kemp told. “If you want a politically incorrect conservative, that’s me.”

Kemp and Williams will face off against other Republicans looking to replace outgoing Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, including frontrunner Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, former country Sen. Hunter Hill, and businessman Clay Tippins.
