Dear Mr. King,
My wife and myself just called the governor’s office and encouraged him to sign SB350/HB978 into law.
Thank you for the constant data. May God always bless you.

Viva 287 g! Enforcement works in Hall County Georgia – immigration lawyers losing potential business
“…once they touch the jail, a hold will be placed on them, and their life in this community is over.”
Lawyers want Hall sheriff to use discretion with illegal immigration program
Cronic: Don’t break the law and you won’t face deportation
By Stephen Gurr
Bortolo Ruiz was fishing with four other Mexican day laborers at Wahoo Creek April 5 when a state Department of Natural Resources Ranger asked the men for their fishing licenses.
When they could provide neither a fishing license nor valid identification, DNR Cpl. Adam Loudermilk arrested the men and took them to the Hall County jail, where it was soon determined they were in the United States illegally. Under a new local-federal initiative known as 287(g), jailers processed the men to be turned over to immigration officials for deportation proceedings.
Within two weeks of their arrest, after pleading no contest in state court to misdemeanor fishing without a license and receiving a suspended sentence of the four days they already served in jail, Ruiz, 29, and his fellow fishermen were picked up by officials with Immigration and Customs and Enforcement, on a fast track for the immigration courts and, very likely, a trip back to Mexico.
Read the rest here and remember – the illegal aliens had to break several laws to become illegal aliens.

The no match rule would give employers 90 days to resolve discrepancies in their workers’ Social Security numbers, plus an additional three days for an employee to submit a new, valid Social Security number, before firing employees who can’t comply.
Hiring undocumented workers has been illegal for two decades, but until now, employers were not held liable for fraudulent documents. Under the no match rule, employers who fail to comply could face fines or criminal penalties.

Last-ditch (ACLU/corporate) bid to halt new crackdown on illegals
As Bush administration officials prepared Friday to finalize rules cracking down on employers of illegal immigrants, business and civil rights advocates continued to hammer the plan, calling it an expensive and ill-conceived attack on legitimate workers and their employers…
Original editorial to which I wrote my response HERE
Published: April 24, 2008
Amnesty would be a mistake
To the editor:
While it is magnanimous of the author of this little gem to allow that the U.S. has the right to enforce its immigration laws, it is beyond frightening that he apparently doesn’t understand that doing so is also a fundamental duty of the federal government. It is never too late and there are no conditions under which it is “immoral”.
The concept that we as nation need all of the citizens we can get is the basis of the open borders movement for which the author of this piece clearly advocates – all the while making noise about a secure border and American workers.
A McCain staffer says it – oh – so much better and considerably more honestly: “We must not only have a free flow of goods and services, but also start working for a free flow of people”. Quote from Juan Hernandez, dual citizen of Mexico and the United States, former head of the Mexican cabinet post of Office of Mexicans Abroad under Vicente Fox and present Hispanic Outreach Director for the John McCain for president campaign.
Besides the 70% of Mexico who make their desire clear, there are more than 5 billion people in the world who would run – not walk – to get a chance to live and work in what remains of our republic.
The mindless concept of repeating the failed amnesty of 1986 as a solution is to ignore the fact that enforcing American employment and immigration laws serves as a deterrent to future potential victims of geography and bargain hunting criminal employers who are beginning to – finally – fear the law and the consequences of its violation.
More enforcement, por favor…this editorial is welcome proof that it is working as planned.
Editor’s reply: Mr. King does not read closely, or ignores what he reads as he sees fit. The editorial maintains that amnesty, for lack of a better word, is the best policy for the United States IN CONJUNCTION with the other steps laid out in the editorial, including border enforcement. Mr. King loves to create a straw man, then knock him down. That way, he wins all his “fights.”
“The school-to-school migration within Northern Virginia started just as Prince William began implementing rules to deny some services to illegal immigrants and require police to check the immigration status of crime suspects thought to be in the country illegally.”

Georgia bills could add to Mexican official’s woes
Americans who are concerned about the decades old illegal immigration crisis and perhaps confused about solutions have only to look to Arizona and the neighboring Mexican state of Sonora to understand the obvious: Enforcement works.
In a comically ironic example of proof, a quote from Mexican Representative Leticia Amparano Gamez in the Tucson Citizen newspaper on the fact that recent Arizona laws aimed at illegal employment and illegal immigration have resulted in thousands of Mexicans returning home. “How can they pass a law like this? Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems”.
The Mexican official’s complaint is that Sonora is being overwhelmed with demands for jail space, housing, social services and classrooms to accommodate the repatriated “migrants” who were formerly residing in the U.S. illegally.
Enforcement works in Georgia too, as is being proven with state Senator Chip Rogers’ (R- Woodstock) 2006 Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act (SB 529). Several additional bills that passed the 2008 General Assembly could add to the Mexican official’s troubles.
From someone who spent many days under the Gold Dome working to encourage legislators to disregard the mindless howls of objection from the usual suspects in the open borders lobby, a short outline of some of what the well-funded leftists fought to stop.
Senate Bill 350, authored by Senator John Wiles (R-Marietta) would punish Georgia residents – including illegal aliens – who are driving without ever having obtained a Georgia driver’s license. Presently, unlicensed driving usually results in a fine which is regarded as little more than speed-bump for the untrained and unlicensed illegal drivers. SB 350 allows for fingerprinting violators, fines of up to $1000.00 and jail time for the first offense – with a felony charge if convicted more than three times in five years.
SB 350 would be a deterrent to illegal presence here and would save lives on Georgia roads. Maybe it would have saved Cobb County Sheriff’s Deputy Loren Lilly who was killed when he was run off the road by an unlicensed illegal alien driver in December 2006.
A nearly identical bill was vetoed by governor Perdue last year.
Representative James Mills (R-Gainesville) deserves our thanks for his dedication to public safety and his courage in standing up to the crazies in the illegal alien lobby for his House Bill 978. It allows law enforcement officers to impound the vehicles of people found to be driving without being licensed – the huge majority of whom are illegals.
Existing federal law allows for the seizure of any vehicle or craft found to be transporting illegal aliens. There goes the ridiculous argument that this is somehow “unconstitutional”. It is also closer to how they handle illegal driving it in Mexico.
SB 421 makes it a felony for the second violation of the crime of knowingly manufacturing, selling, distributing or possessing false identification documents. Even for illegal aliens who have stolen American citizen’s identities on their way to stealing the American Dream. Thank you Senator Chip Pearson (R- Dawsonville).
Including the ACLU, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), these bills have earned all the right enemies. The groups are part of a coalition looking for a better life by urging the governor to veto the legislation.
Before the May 14th veto deadline, these bills deserve the wholehearted support from Georgia citizens.
Two Senate Resolutions are also noteworthy, final and cannot be vetoed. SR 827 written by Senator Nancy Schaefer (R-Turnerville) expresses the will of the Georgia Senate to urge the United States Congress to withdraw the United States from the little known Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America and from any activity that seeks the economic merger of the United States with other nations – like has already been done with the European Union.
SR 1011 from Senator Bill Jackson (R-Appling) offers gratitude and appreciation to United States Border Patrol and urges the President to review the ludicrous and shameful imprisonment of former Border Patrol agents Ignacio “Nacho” Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean. Both were prosecuted for improperly reporting their on – duty wounding of an illegal alien drug smuggler.
The governor should ignore the illegal alien lobby and sign these bills into law and let enforcement work in Georgia. I have called his office 404 656 1776 to say as much.
We all should.
Making Georgia less attractive to illegals is worth the call.
