Frequently Asked Questions About The Dustin Inman Society
What is the goal of The Dustin Inman Society?
The goal of The Dustin Inman Society is to educate the public, the media and our Georgia elected officials on the law, the facts and the consequences regarding America's un-secured borders, and the resulting illegal immigration crisis. See our Mission statement and information about what The Dustin Inman Society does.
Is The Dustin Inman Society against immigration or "anti-immigrant"?
No, real, legal immigrants join the American family according to our rules, and are welcomed. Many of our supporters are real, legal immigrants. Never allow yourself to become confused on the difference between immigrants and illegal aliens. That confusion is a tool encouraged and used by the illegal alien lobby.
We do not believe that it is "anti-immigrant" to demand that immigration into America - and Georgia - be legal... do you?
We are anti-illegal immigration.

The Dustin Inman Society was organized and founded with personal funds by D.A. King, at the request and with the blessings of Billy and Kathy Inman, Dustin Inman's parents. Both Billy and Kathy sit on our board of advisors.

With a focus on Georgia, The Dustin Inman Society is a coalition dedicated to educating the American public, the media and elected officials on the consequences of illegal immigration, illegal employment, illegal administration of Public Benefits, our un-secured borders and the breakdown of the rule of law in our republic. DIS mission statement: http://www.thedustininmansociety.org/info/dustin_inman_society_mission.html
The organization was named in memory of Dustin Inman, a sixteen-year-old youth from Woodstock, Georgia, killed by an illegal alien on Father’s Day week-end, 2000. Dustin was but one of the thousands of Americans who have lost their lives as a result of our intentionally unsecured borders and illegal immigration.
Dustin Inman’s killer remains at large. American law enforcement authorities report they believe he is successfully hiding in Mexico.
D.A. has been a tireless advocate for the spreading use of the 287 (g) enforcement program in Georgia and is proud that it has proven to be a successful tool in removing and deterring criminal aliens and saving lives.
D.A. has been studying our illegal immigration crisis for more than eight years and set aside his twenty-five year insurance business in 2003 to devote full time to educating people on the crisis created by the acts of organized crime of illegal immigration and illegal employment.
He has made four trips to the Southwest border, including one in 2006 on which he served as a guide for four Georgia state legislators.
He has appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Live, PBS, Fox News, CNN ESPANOL, CNN Lou Dobbs Tonight, CBS EVENING NEWS, MSNBC, Univision and in a 2004 CNN Presents one hour documentary on illegal immigration in Georgia.
He was an invited witness who testified on the effects of illegal immigration in the American workplace to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Education and The American Workforce at Congressional Field Hearings in Georgia in August 2006.
He has lectured to a UGA 2007 graduate class in the School of Social Work, a Kennesaw University debate class and a 2006 class of Emory University Journalism students as well as many high-school student organizations.
He has been featured in news stories on illegal immigration in Business Week magazine, Governing magazine, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the Rocky Mountain News, the National Journal, the Christian Science Monitor and other nationally read publications.
D.A. has been a guest host on nationwide radio broadcasts and is a frequent guest on numerous radio shows and networks addressing illegal immigration including NPR, Public Radio International, Air America and CNN.
In April, 2009 he spoke to Georgia Tax Commissioners as an invited authority on use of the federal SAVE system at the annual conference of the Technology Development Council of Georgia (TCTECH).
D.A. lobbies at the local level, at the Georgia Capitol and in Washington D.C. and does public speaking to educate the public. He lobbied in favor of the Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act (SB 529), signed into law in April 2006 . He lobbied in favor of HB 2, a 2009 Georgia law aimed at gaining compliance with the 2006 GSICA.
His present projects include working to convince local governments in Georgia to comply with this law.
D.A. works at his own expense and donations. He has spent his savings doing so.
He has organized more than a dozen protest rallies against illegal immigration and a repeat of the failed amnesty of 1986, both in Georgia and Washington, including a 2005 rally at the White House and another in April of 2007, also at the White House.
In May 2007, he organized a rally to oppose a repeat of the 1986 amnesty legislation outside Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss’ Atlanta office and near Senator Johnny Isakson’s office.
In 1977, King pleaded guilty to a charge of illegal gambling and was punished with a fine and probation.
In 2006 he filed a complaint with the Secretary of the Georgia Senate against Georgia state Senator Sam Zamarripa who is founder and Chair of the tax - exempt corporation “Georgia Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials” (GALEO) and a former board member of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) for conflict of interest in opposing a bill (SB 529) that would require local governments in that state to obey long-standing federal immigration, employment and Public Benefits laws.
D.A. and Sue have been married for 28 years. He is not a member of any political party.
Does The Dustin Inman Society have a board of advisors?
Yes. The board of advisors include:
D.A. King (President)
Is The Dustin Inman Society a for profit company?
No, again, The Dustin Inman Society was formed in memory of Dustin Inman and to present his tragic death as an example of the true cost of our un-secured borders and what some call "cheap labor". In November, 2006 we received tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service (effective July, 2005). Contributions to the Dustin Inman Society are not tax deductible. We will only be able to maintain our efforts with donations from the public.
Do the illegal alien lobbying groups depend on donations from concerned citizens to continue their efforts to further illegal immigration?
No. The corporations and businesses that reap great profits by continuing the supply of what is really taxpayer subsidized labor largely fund alien lobbying groups like MALDEF, LULAC, The National Council of The Race, GALEO and the Coordinating Council of Latino Community Leaders of Atlanta. They receive literally millions of dollars a year in tax-deductible contributions from these corporations. See this example (scroll to page 14) of who finances these groups.
Who in Georgia is most guilty of allowing and assisting illegal immigration into Georgia?
In our opinion, that would be former State Senator Sam Zamarripa (D-36th).
While there are many others, because of his advocating for the continued state acceptance of the Mexican Matricula Consular ID from his elected position under the Gold Dome, his efforts to grant driver's licenses and the rights of citizens to illegal aliens, his membership on the national board of MALDEF and his being an active, founding partner of United Americas Bank - a bank that is encouraging illegal aliens to remain in Georgia by making mortgage loans to that group, we cannot think of anyone who is more worthy of the term "most guilty". We give his errand boy and Executive Director of his illegal alien advocacy organization, the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), Jerry Gonzalez, an honorable mention here. That all-American luminary, Jane Fonda is a founding friend of GALEO.
Isn't illegal immigration only a matter for the federal government?
No. Regardless of their oaths of office, many in the federal government, including the President of the United States, have made it clear that they have no intention of securing American borders or enforcing existing immigration or employment laws. The organized crime that is illegal immigration is a national problem, and Georgia is being severely damaged by that crime. According to the U.S. Census, between 2000 and 2005, Georgia suffered the highest rate of increase of illegal aliens in the entire nation, at 114% - with Arizona, a border state being second with 45%. We sadly note that we all live in border states now.
Governor Perdue and the elected officials under the Gold Dome have the ability to pass and enforce laws that will make life in Georgia very difficult for illegal aliens and their criminal employers. The Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act (2006), written by state Senator Chip Rogers is a very good start and is the strongest state level legislation in the nation.
Local governments also have the ability to adopt ordinances and policies that will discourage illegal immigration in their communities. We point to Cobb and Cherokee counties as examples. Both have leadership who has shown the courage to use available federal tools provided to them.
Wouldn't Georgia and the nation fall apart if we were to enforce our immigration and employment laws and stop the influx of "cheap labor"?
No. There is no such thing as "cheap labor" with regard to illegal aliens. Employing illegal labor is only cheap for the employer, who is able to increase his own profit by paying artificially low wages, many times in cash with no deductions or taxes. By passing off the cost of health care and other social services to the taxpayer, the employer gains while the taxpayer loses.
When illegal aliens begin to leave and avoid Georgia, we will have higher wages, lower taxes, better schools, less crowded and more effective medical services and a return to an English speaking state.
For a mental image of what to expect, think of the Georgia of 1985.
If you are too young to have seen the Georgia of 1985…please ask your grandparents or someone who remembers that Georgians can, and have, built and maintained our beloved state for a rather long time.
When will The Dustin Inman Society Website be complete?
We will be adding and updating the Website on an ongoing basis, Please continue to check here for news, opinion and alerts.
Is D.A. King or the Dustin Inman Society associated with VDARE.com?
Neither D.A. King or the Dustin Inman Society has any association with Peter Brimelow or VDARE.com.
On September 6, 2006, D.A. King demanded that Peter Brimelow remove his name from the VDARE Editorial Collective and archive his writings along with other past authors. To date, Brimelow has refused to cease using D.A.'s name for commercial profit and is soliciting donations while doing so.
We hope to soon remedy this situation.
We encourage all who are considering donating to Brimelow to examine his IRS required form 990 to see how the money is spent... WOW!
WOW! on 2004 too!
(Peter Brimelow's E MAIL ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.org.)
The Dustin Inman Society was formed in 2005 with personal funds and is an independent effort that is only able to continue with your support. Our focus is on the rule of law, our intentionally unsecured borders and illegal immigration.
