According to Splinter, Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Michael Williams is planning on a misguided promotional stunt in which he drives a "deportation bus" through the state in an offensive effort to gain voters.
Williams was the first elected official in Georgia to endorse Donald Trump and he served as the Trump campaign Georgia Co-Chair and he traveled across the nation as an official campaign surrogate.
In the newly released campaign advertisement, Williams says, "We're going to implement my 287 (g) deportation plan to fill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from".
"We're not just going to track them and watch them roam around the state, we're going to put them on this bus and send them home", he continues.
Williams' campaign also specifically calls out one of his Republican primary opponents, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, for "failed leadership" on "illegal immigration", which Williams claims is "a fierce subject" in the race for governor.
His campaign published a video saying this tour would not "be one of those pansy political bus tours".
Hi, I'm Michael Williams and boy do we have some exciting news for you. Proponents say that local cooperation with federal immigration officials promotes public safety, thwarts national security threats, and is essential to upholding the rule of law in the US.
Williams" "Deportation Bus Tour' begs the question as to how Williams will legally gather undocumented immigrants into a bus in order to take them to Mexico. There's little disputing that, now that we've seen the Deportation Bus. After serving two terms already, Deal is mandated to step down. Currently, he's facing off against six other candidates and a recent poll found that only 3 percent of voters back him.
With the Deportation Bus Tour due to stop in the sanctuary cities of Clarkston, Decatur and Athens over the coming days, it has already drawn scorn and bewilderment on Twitter.
