Republican Running for Governor Really Wants to Deport People With a Bus

Republican Running for Governor Really Wants to Deport People With a Bus

Williams said he doesn't actually expect to load any deportees into what he calls his deportation bus, a vehicle complete with prison bus decals on the windows and a message on the back about Mexican immigrants who've entered the U.S. illegally. Michael Williams stopped Wednesday at a Clarkston strip mall housing a Nepalese restaurant and a Halal butcher and grocer. The back reads,"Danger! Murderers, rapists, kidnappers, child molesters, and others on board". All you have to do is take a look at his bus that says, "Fill this bus with illegals vote Michael Williams!".

Williams, a state senator who co-chaired Trump's Georgia campaign, also wants to preserve Confederate monuments and pass the "strongest pro-life legislation in the nation", his website says. Donate to elect a pro-Trump conservative.

"Politicians are using immigrants as a scapegoat for appealing to racist feelings among their voter base and at the same time threatening to undermine Georgia's economic vitality by promising policies that would drive out immigrants from our state", he told the Associated Press.

Youtube removed the Michael Williams' ad featuring the bus saying it violates the site's hate speech policy. WSB-TV's Richard Elliot noted on Twitter that although some of Williams' supporters showed up to greet the bus, they were "outnumbered" by protesters. "It might give them perspective".

YouTube's policy on "hateful content" says the site will not "support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary objective is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics".

Williams's video is back up on YouTube after it was taken down by YouTube earlier today. So as soon as we identify who these illegal immigrants are, primarily because they have broken yet another [criminal law], we can begin the deportation program or process to get them out of our state and out of our country immediately. Current Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp last week promised to "round up criminal illegals" in his truck.

"F$3 ill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from", he said.

The video has caused significant outrage among immigration activists and protesters swarmed his campaign office on Wednesday. Hunter Hill, with a large number of voters undecided.
