  • KING: Illegal alien drivers licenses, constitutional official English on tap for General Assembly, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, January 5, 2016

    Readers who hope for change in Republican-controlled Georgia should be watching Republican state legislators in the coming election year.

  • KING: Georgia should end practice of 'sanctuary' counties, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, July 21, 2015

    If you doubt that astoundingly mindless and dangerous fact, just take a look at the websites of the illegal alien lobby groups like the corporate-funded GALEO where the Executive Director, Jerry Gonzalez, congratulates the counties for advancing the anti-enforcement cause.

  • KING: Today’s GOP Congress: donor class vs. middle class Americans, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, January 7, 2015

    “The people who think the GOP will fight Obama on immigration in the new year are the sort of people who think pro wrestling is real.”

    — Political commentator and talk show host Laura Ingraham on the refusal of the Republican-controlled House to confront Obama on his executive immigration amnesty in the year-end omnibus funding bill

  • KING: Note to Republicans on Obama amnesty decree: 'Not one more', by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, November 23, 2014

    “Congress has no higher duty than to protect the American people and our Constitution. The President’s action is a threat to every working person in this country — their jobs, wages, dreams, hopes and futures.” — Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., on President Barack Obama’s immigration order

  • KING: On immigration, Welcome to Republican-ruled Georgiafornia, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, March 30, 2014

    The adventures of legislators on immigration and common sense will likely come as a surprise to many voters.

  • KING: Immigration issues must be discussed at future debates, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, February 9, 2014

    Not requiring candidates for the Senate to be vetted on their positions on amnesty, enforcement and future flows of immigration is irresponsible.

  • KING: Two conservative issues for the Republican-controlled Gold Dome in 2014, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, January 5, 2014

    It is important that all concerned realize that this brazen Obama instant-amnesty does not change the fact that the illegal aliens who are affected are still illegal aliens. Both the official United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website and the White House blog page make it clear: “Deferred action does not provide an individual with lawful status.”

  • KING: On immigration and promises from the Gang of Eight: Remember 1986, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, April 23, 2013

    In 1988, just two years after the Republican establishment actually delivered the "one-time" amnesty ("we'll never have to do it again ... "), GOP presidential candidate George H.W. Bush lost the Latino vote by 39 points. The all-time modern record harvest was Texan George W. Bush, who promised amnesty in his 2004 re-election campaign. He got about 40 percent of the Hispanic vote.

    In 2008, Republican John McCain got 31 percent of the Latino vote.

    The record low was Bob Dole at 21 percent in 1996 against incumbent Bill Clinton, who had just implemented landmark, effective border-fence measures in San Diego. But Democrat Clinton still won. In a landslide. With 72 percent of the Hispanic vote.

    Don't like the legal and accurate term "illegal alien?" "Undocumented Democrat" is just as descriptive.

  • KING: GOP wasting its time with amnesty outreach to Hispanic voters, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, November 15, 2012

    Apparently, panicked leaders in the GOP are attempting to prove "those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Again.

  • KING: Georgia's GOP primary voters should make their voices heard on illegal immigration, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, June 22, 2012

    Here is another fact from a longtime denizen of the Gold Dome and local county commission chambers: The real and most powerful opponents of illegal immigration enforcement are not the ACLU and the rest of the far-left, open borders mob. The main challenge to state enforcement legislation comes from the Chamber of Commerce of Georgia. And the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) and the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA). And the agriculture industry

  • Facts on illegal immigration for Georgia?s political campaign season, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, May 5, 2012

    In the Republican controlled state Capitol, the Georgia General Assembly that ended March 29 was the first legislative session since 2004 in which no (zero!) illegal immigration legislation was passed

  • KING: GOP vs illegal alien lobby in Gold Dome battle on public college education for illegals, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, March 22, 2012

    There is a battle in the Georgia Capitol over whether the Board of Regents -- the people who run the taxpayer-built University System of Georgia (USG) -- will be finally forced to stop admitting illegal aliens into Georgia's public universities and Tech Schools. It is quite educational to watch.

  • Predictions on illegal immigration for 2012, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, December 31, 2011

    Predictions within a prediction: The media will continue to hide that fact that nearly half of the insurgent illegal aliens currently in the U.S. did not arrive here illegally. They came on legal tourist visas and refused to leave. The media -- and the candidates -- will fail to make the fact that we have no dependable system in place to monitor visa-holder departures a campaign issue

  • King: Charting the "oversights" in Gingrich's amnesty plan, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, December 4, 2011

    Redefining the concept of "amnesty" is an old and transparently lame political maneuver. In 2007 when some Republicans (hola, Lindsey Graham, John McCain and George W. Bush) sided with the late U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy to attempt passage of another legalization bill, you stood a better chance of hearing it described as a crook-necked squash than the amnesty it was.

    Any legislation or administrative legalization policy that allows illegal aliens to stay in the U.S. is amnesty -- again.

  • Georgia Republican Delegation In Washington Silent On Obama Anti-Enforcement Immigration Decree, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, September 4, 2011

    On Thursday, August 18, the Obama administration announced the Department of Homeland Security would begin to dismiss pending deportation cases of thousands of illegal aliens who have already been captured in the United States.

  • KING: Immigration reality is not a media priority, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, July 24, 2011

    A major obstacle to average Americans’ ability to gain a real understanding of the immigration issue is the policy of many in the media to offer “news” that mostly promotes and encourages the anti-enforcement agenda.

  • It’s crunch time for GOP-controlled Capitol, illegal immigration, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, April 10, 2011

    By the end of the week, Georgia citizens will have much better view of the true priorities and intent of the state’s Republican-controlled legislative and executive branches of government on illegal immigration

  • Legal residents don’t fear HB 87, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, March 31, 2011

    The message, even though most of the day-long rally was conducted in a foreign language, was quite clear: “Your laws do not apply to us unless they benefit our presence in your country.”

  • KING: Even Obama knows E-Verify is a winner, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, March 13, 2011

    House Bill 87, the most potentially effective and well-written state illegal immigration and employment enforcement bill in the nation, passed the Georgia House 113-56 last week.

    "Kill the bill" faxes from the business community started coming in to state Senate offices about 20 minutes later.

  • We await the governor living up to his promise, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, February 20, 2011

    According to new General Accountability Office report, the Border Patrol only has “operational control” of 44 percent of the southern border with that paradise to our south. That’s 873 miles out of the nearly 2,000-mile border supposed to separate the U.S. and Mexico.

    If we want to effectively address illegal immigration in Georgia, we must do it ourselves.

  • KING: E-Verify not a risk to our agriculture, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, January 21, 2011

    The concept that illegal workers are integral in or necessary for Georgia’s largest industry is complete fertilizer.

  • D.A. King, by KING: Enforce, verify our immigration laws, Gwinnett Daily Post, December 19, 2010

    The Georgia legislature is conducting joint committee hearings on legislative solutions to illegal immigration in Georgia. And is being constantly reminded of the fact that we are cursed with more illegal aliens than Arizona.

    The solution is obvious: Enforcement. It works, just like with any other crime.

    Most illegal immigration is all about jobs, jobs, jobs. Illegal aliens migrate out of every area in which jobs become unavailable and the law is enforced. And they take their budget-crashing dependents with them.

  • DREAM Act another attempt at amnesty, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, November 28, 2010

    While it comes in multiple versions, the DREAM Act amnesty is constantly described as being “for teenaged students.” Complete bunk. The amnesty applies mostly to adults up to age 35 and would be the largest addition to Democrat voting rolls since ... well, since the “one-time” amnesty of 1986.

  • Your taxes fund blocks to immigration enforcement, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, April 4, 2010

    In the 2009 legislative session, Gwinnett Rep. Tom Rice authored House Bill 2 to amend the language of the original law so that it would have “teeth.” HB 2 was fought in every step of the long committee process by the ACLU, ACCG and GMA.

    A much-watered-down version of HB 2 eventually passed, but still without any real punishment for violations, thanks to the dedicated and tireless “kill the bill” lobbying from ACCG and GMA.

  • KING: Illegal immigration tore the Rosas family apart, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, January 17, 2010

    We will hear that it would somehow help the unemployment crisis. While we follow the ridiculous “we need amnesty again” arguments from the illegal immigration industry, we should remember an American hero named Robert Rosas.

  • Illegals aren't owed coverage by Uncle Sam, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, August 13, 2009

    Many readers have not heard about Georgia Rep. Nathan Deal's amendment to a version of "the health care reform bill" (HR 3200). The bill lacks language that would prevent illegal aliens from accessing Obama's proposed universal coverage.

  • Immigration enforcement a priority for public safety, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, July 16, 2009

    The 287(g) program will have an immediate effect of driving much of the already illegally present criminal element out of Gwinnett, and in the process save tax dollars that are now going to finance their law enforcement, incarceration and translation services, and the medical care and education costs of dependents.

    This is not only a start on the return to the rule of law - it is a net tax dollar saver.

  • Conway, ICE to be commended for upholding law, by D.A.King, Gwinnett Daily Post, February 8, 2009

    Raise your hand if you think deporting murderers and child molesters makes us "less safe." Raise your hand if you can explain what race "illegal" is.

  • Immigration law vs. politics, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, October 24, 2008

    "I don't know if that's the law. I don't know if it's not the law," Bannister said. For him and his staff, it seems there is no immigration law - only immigration politics.

  • Governments fail to follow law, verify their employees, by D.A. King, Gwinnett Daily Post, June 22, 2008

    No one - including Sen. Rogers and those who lobbied for the bill - imagined that the elected officials of nearly all of the state's local governments would fail to comply with the language of the law.
