Adjust Comment Print

It's the kind of message you don't expect to see on a U.S. election campaign bus: "FOLLOW ME TO MEXICO".

Williams is proudly, enthusiastically, telling his voters that the bus he's standing by will be filled with illegal immigrants-while generic rock music plays in the background.

Michael Williams on Tuesday shared a video promoting Williams's "Deportation Bus Tour" to the state's "sanctuary cities" to promote his pro-deportation policies.

Throughout his bus tour of sanctuary cities, Williams will expose how risky illegal aliens ruin local economies, cost American jobs, increase healthcare costs, and lower education standards.

"We are going to implement my 287 (g) deportation plan".

Georgia state Sen. Michael Williams made waves with his "deportation bus" ad, and for several hours, YouTube had taken the video down for violating its hate speech policy before later putting it back up, The Hill reported.

"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. Sanctuary cities generally limit police cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

The primary election is on May 22, early voting has already begun.

That didn't stop the ad from sparking a backlash from some groups as images of the bus spread online. "We're going to put them on this bus and send 'em home".

"Disgusting and racist! That is why we, as Latinos, must VOTE like never before to defend our community and DEMAND respect!" said one commenter.

Sitting in a Ford F350, Kemp, the current Republican secretary of state, said, "I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take them home myself". At the moment, current Lieutenant Gov. Casey Cagle (R) is leading in both polls and fundraising, with nearly $7 million raised and 41 percent of the vote.

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