  • Activist key to immigration bill, by Kate Brumback Associated Press, Athens Banner Herald, July 4, 2011

    ATLANTA - With the fate of a proposal to crack down on illegal immigration still unknown in the frenetic final days of Georgia's legislative session, the bill's author was spotted several times huddled in hushed discussions in the Capitol hallways with D.A. King.

  • Visa program could curb illegal immigration, by D.A. King, Athens Banner Herald, February 3, 2011

    The employer must provide either three meals a day to each worker or furnish free and convenient cooking and kitchen facilities for workers to prepare their own meals. If meals are provided, then the employer may charge each worker a certain amount per day for the three meals.

    These requirements obviously make hiring the more "flexible" and desperate illegal labor considerably more profitable. And there is little fear of federal punishment.

  • Stop employing illegal immigrants, by D.A. King, Athens Banner Herald, December 14, 2010

  • DREAM Act would be a nightmare, by D.A. King, Athens Banner Herald, November 30, 2010

    In less than a decade, this reality could easily double or triple the more than 2.1 million green cards that will be immediately distributed as a result of the DREAM Act," Sessions, a consistent voice of reason illegal immigration, wrote recently.

    We now have a law that says we must obey the law that says we must obey the law. And I'm sure I'm not the only one asking why a law is required for any responsible local government to do everything possible to discourage already-illegal actions.

  • Legal status would boost illegal immigration, by D.A. King, Athens Banner Herald, December 8, 2009

    "..."An overwhelming majority - 69 percent - of people in Mexico thought that the primary loyalty of Mexican Americans (Mexico- and U.S.-born) should be to Mexico. Just 20 percent said it should be to the United States. The rest were unsure."

    Like most Americans, Robert Rosas was sure of his loyalty. He died defending his country. His dedication to duty represents the majority pro-American side of the "immigration debate."

  • Time to pick sides on illegal immigration, by D.A. King, Athens Banner Herald, June 10, 2009

    Allowing millions of illegal aliens into our country with an amnesty every 20 years or so is merely official open borders in slow motion. The rule of law upon which our nation was founded? Disposable, dated and inconvenient.

  • Illegal aliens exacerbate economic woes, by D.A. King, Athens Banner Herald, April 8, 2009

  • Local governments slow to comply with immigration law, by D.A. King, Athens Banner Herald, July 8, 2008
