Ms. Wilson,

I hope all is well with you. I have just returned from a week long tour of both sides of the southern border.

I am writing an article about the just-ended Georgia legislative session that involves the RIDE program and I have a question please. According to a state legislator, at least one senior state official has reportedly claimed that the RIDE program “is going away.”

Can you please offer an official statement that confirms or disputes that premise? Is the RIDE program being phased out and if so, is there a replacement program with similar goals?

I am writing for Insider Advantage Georgia and for my own news outlet, Immigration Politics Georgia. This information will also be part of a submission to National Review.

Thank you in advance,

D.A. King
