As candidates work to make their final laps around the state ahead of the May 22nd Primary Election, one candidate is drawing attention by doing things a little differently.
Senator Michael Williams, a Forsyth County Republican on the gubernatorial ballot, will make his rounds on the campaign “Deportation Bus.”
According to the Williams campaign, the tour will begin by visiting sanctuary cities, including
Decatur, Athens, and Clarkston, where illegal immigrants have been the center of public debates ending with local governments offering safe havens. In many sanctuary communities, local law enforcement will not act on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement order to detain someone on an immigration offense unless a judge has signed a warrant for it. National think-tank Center for Immigration Studies has deemed Clayton and DeKalb counties as “sanctuary communities,” not cities because Georgia’s 2009 law is technically for cities, not counties. The Peach State also requires cities to certify that they’re not sanctuary cities by cooperating with federal immigration officials in order to receive state funding.
A press release sent Tuesday said “Williams will expose how dangerous illegal aliens ruin local economies, cost American jobs, increase healthcare costs, and lower education standards.“
The campaign also released a video to accompany the kickoff.
“Illegal immigration is a fierce subject in Georgia’s race for governor; only Michael Williams has the record and the plan to shut down illegal immigration in Georgia. Under Casey Cagle’s failed leadership, Georgia now outranks both Arizona and New Mexico in the total number of illegal aliens. Cagle’s own hometown of Gainesville has developed a reputation for turning a blind eye to criminal illegal aliens,” the campaign said.
After visiting the above-mentioned communities, the bus will then venture on to other corners of the state to meet with Republican Primary voters.

Republican voters are wholly expecting a runoff between current Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle and one of the other five candidates, but at this point, it is anyone’s spot to claim.
Williams just announced his TV ad Monday, which also highlights illegal immigration as a campaign priority.
