KING: On immigration, Welcome to Republican-ruled Georgiafornia, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, March 30, 2014
Early in the session, when informed of the fact that illegals were obtaining driver’s licenses, more than one confused legislator howled that “it isn’t our fault. Obama did this with his DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) virtual amnesty.”
D.A. King; Amnesty outreach to Hispanics a waste of time, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, November 14, 2012
“Hispanics” are a fairly liberal voting group. Just 12 percent of Latinos polled supported a cuts-only approach to deficit reduction. Only 25 percent want to repeal Obama-care. Only 31 percent said they’d be more likely to vote for a Republican who supports the DREAM Act.
Facts on illegal immigration for Georgia’s political campaign season, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, May 4, 2012

Law would halt illegals’ admission to public universities, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, February 1, 2012
The chairman of the powerful Senate Committee on Rules also testified to the same committee in favor of the bill and carefully explained that his own son had been denied admission to a local university because it had no available seats for his classes.

Republican delegation silent on Obama anti-enforcement effort, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, September 1, 2011

Governor’s campaign promises deserve attention, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, March 2, 2011
Because unemployment is so high, we should not consider statewide use of the E-Verify system already in place for public employers and public works contractors. It would force too many “undocumented workers” -- and their dependents -- to migrate out of Georgia.”
I am not making this up.
H2A visa - an education, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, January 23, 2011
There is currently much consternation and hand wringing over the fact that the Georgia legislature may actually move to protect jobs by clamping down on illegal hiring with the no-cost federal E-Verify system. But a key component of the story is not widely known.
How to stop illegal immigration in Georgia?, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, December 19, 2010
In part, GSICA requires local governments and official agencies that administer public benefits to use an affidavit system and a federal program called “SAVE” to verify the eligibility of applicants for those finite taxpayer funded benefits.
There is no penalty for any local government or department head for violation. It shows.
Another DREAM Act amnesty vote coming in lame duck Congress, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, November 28, 2010
No alien who files an amnesty application may be removed from the United States before the application is adjudicated completely. There are no exceptions to this, so as long as an alien files an amnesty application before he flies a plane into the World Trade Center or goes on a killing spree in the local mall, he cannot be removed from the country until USCIS (hopefully) denies his application and he has exhausted all appeals.
Dream Act: Amnesty for illegals and their families, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, September 22, 2010

Reality: Enforcement of immigration laws is not draconian, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, May 23, 2010

The 2010 battle for repeating the "one-time" amnesty of 1986 has begun.
Governments rewarding illegals with licenses, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, October 4, 2009
One can only imagine the headlines if the same local governments illegally rewarding illegal aliens were to violate the laws granting education and no-cost “emergency” health care to the same people who are right now sneaking past Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas’ replacement.
Does health-care reform include illegals?, by D.A. King, Macon Telegraph, September 20, 2009
According to the CRS, “a Health Insurance Exchange would begin operation in 2013 and would offer private plans alongside a public option. ... HR 3200 does not contain any restrictions on noncitizens whether legally or illegally present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently.”
Component in Obama-care not widely reported, by D.A. King, Macon Telegrap, July 26, 2009
What about the illegals and government provided health insurance?
