Agencies targeted for not complying with Georgia’s immigration laws

An anti-illegal immigration activist is asking Attorney General Sam Olens to crack down on local and state government agencies for not complying with Georgia’s immigration laws. — In an email to Olens Monday, D.A. King referred to how hundreds of local government agencies have not filed annual reports certifying they and their public works contractors are using E-Verify…

Subject: RE: Request for prosecution/civil action of verified and admitted violation of state immigration-related law, Georgia Attorney General
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 6:08 PM

Mr. King,

We are in receipt of and have reviewed the below request. Upon review and inquiry with the Immigration Enforcement Review Board, it is clear that each of your complaints are still fully pending before the Board. Because the sole purpose for which the General Assembly created the Board was enforcement of the statutory provisions at issue in your complaint, and the Board currently has an enforcement action pending on this very matter, it would be imprudent for us to proceed separately with your complaint at this time.

If you wish to discuss this matter further, please feel free to call me.

Honorable Mr. Sam Olens
Attorney General, State of Georgia
Office of the Attorney General
40 Capitol Square, SW
Atlanta, Ga 30334

Sent via email – also shared with selected media outlets corrected version

Request for prosecution/civil action of verified and admitted violation of state law

Dear Mr. Olens,
I write to ask your office to begin civil action/prosecution/ for violations of state law (OCGA 13-10-91 & OCGA 50-36-1) regarding protection of taxpayer funded public benefits and preservation/protection of jobs and employment positions for legal Georgia residents.

As you know, existing law (OCGA 45-10-28) allows your office to collect penalties of up to $10,000.000 from department heads who violate these laws. Further, Georgia law clearly allows action from your office to sanction violators independently from any action – or inaction – of the Immigration Enforcement Review Board (IERB).

Having been involved in filing valid, well researched and documented complaints with the IERB and witnessed one of their meetings at which two valid complaints were set aside while a third was defected to a future meeting – despite a clear public admission from the Commissioner of Community Affairs that his agency has been in violation of Georgia law since January 1, 2010 – I have little hope that any real or meaningful sanctions will be imposed on any department heads or officials who violate the laws I cite above.

Currently, the many illegal immigration/illegal employment laws the Georgia legislature has passed and that two governors have signed into law since 2006 are regarded as “compliance optional” with a wink and a smiling nod by many state agencies and local governments and their well-funded lobbying corporations.

In July of this year I filed three valid and legal complaints with the IERB. In the interest of time and ease of processing for your office, I am filing this request electronically and using the information already collected and prepared as background and evidence for this complaint to and request for action from your office.

My original complaints to IERB regarding violation of the above laws can be read HERE. I hope that all department heads involved will be considered for sanctions by your office.

Additional information on complaints.


I am now told that the number of agencies which have not filed the required reports focused on E-Verify has dropped to around 500. This, after multiple warnings over the course of several months by the Department of Audits and accounts regarding action that was mandated by state law before December 31, 2011. I respectfully urge you to prove that Georgia law will be enforced as deterrence to future refusal to comply.


A written response from Mike Beatty, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Community Affairs office to the IERB is HERE. Please note in addition to the admission in this letter, on Thursday, September 20, 2012 Commissioner Beatty addressed the IERB in an open meeting and acknowledged and admitted that his office has been in violation of Georgia law since January, 2010.

While the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper sent a reporter to the September 20th meeting, that newspaper did not make any of that admission public and to my knowledge, published no report on the admission by Commissioner Beatty.

The Associated Press also had a reporter present and did report on the meeting and Beatty’s admission. That AP news report can be read HERE. I respectfully urge you to prove that Georgia law will be enforced as deterrence to future refusal to comply.


Again, the requirements under Georgia law for these agencies have been in place since 2010. I respectfully urge you to prove that Georgia law will be enforced as deterrence to future refusal to comply.

Mr. Olens, I am not certain that this electronic correspondence to your office is the correct and acceptable method of contact.
I am sure that the information here is accurate and that the violations detailed here are quite real. I appeal to you to take action on my complaints and to inform me if this letter and background material should be sent to your office in a hard-copy format.

Very respectfully,

D.A. King

The AP reported on Thursday’s IERB meeting HERE. Jeremy Redmon, the AJC immigration reporter was there too – I challenge anyone to find a report from him or the “watchdog” AJC on this. Really too bad there was no video of this sadly hilarious meeting.

My three compliants HERE. Don’t look now, but with ther exception of two or three members who really care, the Georgia Immigration Enforcement Review Board is a mockery of a sham. More later.

John Litland leter to the editor Marietta Daily Journal on Kevin Foley

Published, September 21, 2012

Dear editor,

DEAR EDITOR: Liberals have little in the way of facts, but a great deal of mindless attacks to peddle. I quit reading Kevin Foley’s column on “Contrasting Conventions” (Sept. 7 MDJ) when I reached the part where he writes: “We met Julian Castro, the dynamic young mayor of San Antonio who told of his family’s fierce determination to make it in their adopted country. ‘My mother fought hard for civil rights so that instead of a mop, I could hold this microphone,’ Castro declared.”

While I don’t suffer from the guilt for being a white American as Foley seems to, and not that I have any hope that it will change his view, a little injection of fact that may help other readers understand him and the rest of the Open Borders left is in order. Foley’s use of the term “anti-immigration” is an indicator of the endless effort to redefine the language to suit the leftist agenda. He rails against the ideals of the majority of Americans who demand that we actually enforce our immigration laws by labeling those of us who stand up for secure borders and enforcement as “anti-immigration.”

This is straight out of the La Raza handbook on “how to” marginalize anyone who gets in their way. Illegal aliens are not immigrants and honoring our immigration system by enforcing immigration laws is not “anti-immigration.” And Foley isn’t fooling anyone but other liberals.

At our house, where my wife is a proud immigrant — which by definition means she is here legally — we honor real immigrants. We know the USA takes in more than one million legal immigrants each year. More than any nation in the world. It is knee-jerk liberals like Foley who are truly the “antis.” He is anti-enforcement if it will keep Comrade Obama in power. We also know that pandering to the un-American loons in the open borders lobby may buy some votes, but it is ruining our country.

We look forward to when Foley rails against Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for being “anti-automobile.”

A short education on the Mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro mentioned by Foley will help other readers as well. Along with his twin, Joaquin, who is currently running for Congress, the Castro boys learned their politics on their mother’s knee. Their mother helped found a radical, anti-white, socialist Chicano party called La Raza Unida (literally “The Race United”) a separatist group unsuccessfully camouflaged as a “civil rights” effort which sought to create a separate country in the American Southwest.

Castro’s mother helps manage her sons’ political careers. Far from denouncing her radical politics, he sees them as his inspiration. While not as radical as Obama, Castro sounds just like someone Foley will soon support for higher office.

Karen Weinstock: Immigration lawyer, anti-enforcement bigot and enemy of job protection for legal workers

Heads up to all pro-enforcement readers concerning a Georgia immigration lawyer who is rabidly anti-enforcement. And who runs a blog on which she works hard to demonstrate her mindless resentment of Americans who demand that we enforce immigration laws: Karen Weinstock , also rumored to be a ((rumored material previously posted here removed 10:40 AM October 19, 2012 as I cannot prove the accuracy of the rumors and the fact that posting them made me feel like I was sinking to the depths in which people like Weinstock dwell and work and work )), in my opinion.

You can read some of her smear work HERE .

Lawyer Weinstock has apparently engaged smear typing before reading the three complaints I filed in July. The long list of violating entities was taken directly from official monitoring agencies. But, who cares about the truth when you may be losing potential clients and billable hours to possible enforcement and saving jobs in Georgia for legal residents with use of E-Verify…ehh, Karen?

You un-American, idiot bigot.

D.A. King in the Marietta Daily Journal: Are you better off than you were four years ago?

Marietta Daily Journal
September 19, 2012

D.A. King

Are you better off than you were four years ago?

This is rather amusing. The panicked Obama “Hope and Change” — oops — I mean “Forward” campaign staff is struggling to handle a simple and un-welcomed question being asked of American voters: Are you better off than you were four years ago? (Certainly the 47 percent who depend on Obama’s government say “yes.”)

And for millions of illegal aliens in Obama’s America, the clear answer is a resounding “si!”

The “food-stamp president” from Chicago should be a smash hit with the fugitive illegal alien class. Regardless of the Constitution and the Founders’ hope for a nation governed by the Rule of Law, those people never had it so good. And that is really saying something.

As astonishing as it is, we are told there are still American voters who are undecided on their vote for president in November.

For all concerned, a look at a few illegal immigration facts surrounding Democrat Dear Leader’s war on enforcement and self-reliance to mull over on your way to the voting booth:

 Obama’s Agriculture Department is encouraging food stamp use on foreign language radio. Yes, the USDA is targeting Spanish speakers with radio “novelas” promoting food stamp usage. Telenovelas are a popular form of entertainment in Latin American countries. ( See related video on my MDJ blog.)

Food stamp use reached a record 46.7 million people in June, and according to Bloomberg News, food-stamp spending more than doubled in four years.

“This administration has been hawking food stamps” U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) told Bloomberg this week. “Every additional dollar in this program is borrowed money,” he said. “It’s one more example of government incompetence.”

The feds report spending on food stamps, officially called the ‘Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP,’ totaled $6.21 billion in June. The record is $6.26 billion in September 2011. “Change” indeed.

Americans who have been constantly told — and accepted as fact — that “undocumented workers” cannot access welfare benefits may be asking what Obama’s “come get ‘em” food stamp program has to do with illegal aliens. Here’s what: The magic “anchor babies” — children born to illegal alien parents in the U.S. — are currently regarded as automatic U.S. citizens and are eligible for welfare at birth. Including food stamps. And Medicaid. And more…

 Well-coached 21st century illegal aliens understand that the more children they can produce, the easier it is to access American welfare benefits which then aid the entire family. And they then scream “You can’t deport me, I have an American citizen child…!” While marching in the street against any immigration enforcement. “Cheap labor in the shadows” indeed.

Each USDA-produced food stamp novela, titled “PARQUE ALEGRIA,” or “HAPPINESS PARK,” presents a semi-dramatic scenario involving characters convincing others to get on food stamps, or explaining how much healthier it is to be on food stamps.

The USDA is not promoting an equivalent English-language drama series, says Washington’s Daily Caller.

This is no-doubt regarded by the illegal alien lobby as “hate-reporting.”

 Another “hate-fact?” According to the U.S. Census and the respected Center for Immigration Studies most illegal alien families collect some sort of welfare. Judicial Watch sums it up: “Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies. Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives …”

“Just looking for a better life” indeed.

It may help some voters to decide on how Americans should move forward to know the Democrats proudly and shamelessly welcomed an illegal alien as a featured speaker at their national convention. You read that correctly. Illegal alien addresses Democrat political convention on national TV. How heartwarming.

The illegal alien lobby blogosphere is squealing in delight at how far they have moved forward since Obama and the Dems began ruling in the White House.

“In choosing to have someone who defiantly remains present in the United States in violation of federal law address the convention during prime time is nothing more than a celebration of lawlessness. And by celebrating illegal immigration, the Democratic Party is sending a clear message that our immigration laws are not only inconsequential, but that the people who break our laws are heroes,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR). I agree.

The question is: Are Americans better off than they were four years ago? The other question is: If the GOP cannot take the White House from Obama, can they beat anyone … ever ?

GEORGIFORNIA: Nearly 600 government agencies face penalties under immigration law

Posted by D.A. King at 9:30 am - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

On July 2, D.A. King, an advocate for enforcement of U.S. immigration and employment laws, filed a complaint with the board, alleging that more than 1,000 city and county government agencies were not complying. The board plans to discuss the issue at its public meeting at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in Room 606 of the Coverdell Legislative Office Building, across from the state Capitol in downtown Atlanta.

Nearly 600 government agencies face penalties under immigration law
By Jeremy Redmon

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Nearly 600 city and county government agencies across Georgia face losing access to tens of millions of dollars in state loans and grants for not complying with a central part of the state’s immigration law.

At issue is a requirement that government employers with two or more employees file annual reports certifying they and their public works contractors are using E-Verify. The federal work authorization program helps confirm newly hired employees are eligible to work in the United States.

This month, the state Audits and Accounts Department sent a list of 570 government agencies to the Department of Community Affairs, saying they have not filed annual E-Verify reports. The letter says those not complying with the law could be cut off from certain state funding — including state community development block grants — until they file their reports with state auditors.

The state’s list includes four counties outside the Atlanta area, more than 130 cities across the state and more than 400 other government entities, including hospital, housing and development authorities.

State Auditor Greg Griffin cautioned in his letter that some might have no employees and would therefore be exempt under the law. Many cities, for example, have one or no employees and operate with the help of volunteers and contractors. A Department of Community Affairs official said Tuesday that his agency would send an email reminding government agencies on the list to comply with the state’s immigration law.

Butts County and the Atlanta-area cities of East Point, Lilburn and Norcross are on the list state auditors identified this month. Lilburn and Butts officials said they were using E-Verify as required by law and would send the state reports that certify this. East Point and Norcross officials said they were looking into the matter.

State lawmakers passed the comprehensive immigration law last year, aiming to preserve jobs in Georgia for U.S. citizens. The Pew Hispanic Center estimated that 325,000 illegal immigrants held jobs in Georgia in 2010. The state’s unemployment rate stands at 9.3 percent.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported on widespread gaps in the annual E-Verify reporting on June 24. The first reports were due by Dec. 31. Some local government officials said they were unaware of the law. Others blamed their missing reports on staff turnovers and heavy workloads. Sandy Springs and several other local governments filed their reports after the AJC contacted them.

On June 25, state auditors sent out a letter warning nearly 1,200 government agencies that they were not complying with the law and that the Immigration Enforcement Review Board could sanction them. That punishment could include fines up to $5,000 for officials who “knowingly” violate the law. A state auditor indicated many government agencies responded to that warning letter.

On July 2, D.A. King, an advocate for enforcement of U.S. immigration and employment laws, filed a complaint with the board, alleging that more than 1,000 city and county government agencies were not complying. The board plans to discuss the issue at its public meeting at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in Room 606 of the Coverdell Legislative Office Building, across from the state Capitol in downtown Atlanta.

SAPPORTA REPORT, Gwinnett County’s dramatic demographic shift illustrates question: “Who are We?”: The joys and results of immigration – both legal and illegal – in Gwinnett County Georgia

Gwinnett County’s dramatic demographic shift illustrates question: “Who are We?”

By David Pendered

The notion that Gwinnett County is home to a population that’s predominately white and affluent is as out-of-date as the idea that two painted water towers along I-85 in Norcross still proclaim: “Success Lives Here.”

Gwinnett County’s iconic towers were demolished in 2010, the same year in which the Census recorded stunning shifts in the county’s demographics. Credit:
The 40-year-old towers were torn down two years ago. In the decade before their demolition, 40,000 whites had moved out of Gwinnett. Now, the county’s population is predominately non-white, and less wealthy and less educated than it was in 2000.

The demographic shift in Gwinnett speaks to the broader question of “Who are We?” That was the topic Wednesday, at the quarterly meeting of the Atlanta Regional Housing Forum.

Out of the entire two-hour program, the most stunning report was provided by Lejla Slowinski, executive director of the Lawrenceville Housing Authority.

Slowinski provided a snapshot of Gwinnett’s population that gave some real heft to the demographic report on the metro Atlanta region that was delivered by Michael Rich, an associate professor of political science at Emory University who heads Emory’s Office of University-Community Partnerships.

Slowinski prefaced her remarks by saying she would talk later about ways in which Gwinnett’s civic and government leaders are leveraging the county’s diversity. But first, she said, she wanted to provide a bit of context about Gwinnett.

Speaking without any visual aids, such as a PowerPoint slide show, Slowinski riveted the audience’s attention with a cascade of nuggets derived from the 2000 and 2010 Census reports. The data shows that Gwinnett isn’t just changing – it is a changed community:

■Per capita income has fallen by $7,000;
■The proportion of whites in the overall population has fallen to 49.3 percent from 67 percent;
■No single Census tract has a white population of greater than 90 percent;
■32 percent of households speak a language other than English;
■61 percent of students in the county school system are non-whites;
■High school graduation rates for non-whites rose to 70 percent from 50 percent;
■25 percent of Gwinnett commuters spend at least 45 minutes a day in the car.
Sources other than the Census provide additional insights:

■18 percent of Gwinnett’s children live in poverty;
■The county’s poverty rate rose from 5.6 percent in 2000 to 13 percent in 2009;
■The number of foreclosures in Gwinnett has topped Fulton since 2009 (Fulton formerly had the region’s highest number of foreclosures).
One relevant point is that Gwinnett’s government and school board are trying to serve the human needs of this population with an ever-decreasing amount of tax revenues.

At the Piece by Piece annual meeting last week, Gwinnett County Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said the county’s digest has dropped 25 percent during the past five years. That decrease has reduced the amount of property taxes collected by the county and school system, which is the main source of funding for both governments.

“The population has continued to diversify,” Nash said. “According to the 2010 Census, Gwinnett was the most diverse county in the southeast. That very different from what it was 20 years. It’s created language considerations, and the demand for additional types of flexibility in terms of how we deal with the community.”

Slowinski said the Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce works diligently to reach out to, and serve, the minority business community. The number of firms owned by Hispanics and African Americans is still a small proportion of the overall mix, but it’s growing, she said.

“Gwinnett wants to be a middle of the road county, but also can see itself being an international gateway, and some of that is evident in the efforts to bring a [commercial] airport to the county,” Slowinski said. “They really are pushing the concept of, ‘Success Lives Here.’”

At the start of the meeting, Rich set the framework for the forum’s conversation. The purpose of the quarterly housing forum was to discuss ways in which changing demographics are reshaping the region.

Rich used a comparison of Census data from 2000 to 2010 to note that:

■The city of Atlanta’s population has shifted from almost ¾ African American to slightly more than half African American, as whites and other ethnic groups have moved into the central city;
■Non-whites represent almost half the population outside the city of Atlanta, a region in which whites formerly comprised over ¾ of the population;
■Poverty has risen dramatically in the suburbs, as opposed to being concentrated in the city of Atlanta;
■Whites tend to reside in Census tracts where most residents are white;
■African Americans and Hispanics tend to reside in communities where less than half the other residents are of their heritage
