Much of GOP Georgia is a sanctuary state – Brian Kemp, Chief Executive
Pro-enforcement eyes around the nation should watch Republican-ruled Georgia to see if the House passes HB 1105, the ‘Georgia Criminal Alien Track and Report Act” before the crossover deadline on Feb. 29. Two state laws barring sanctuary policies have been in place since the 2000’s but have no penalties and are widely ignored by nearly half of the 159 county sheriffs. The pending bill would put a compliance verification system and criminal penalties for violations into the laws.
The measure is stuck in the House Public Safety committee. Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp campaigned on ending “sanctuary cities” but has remained silent on the bill while the corporate-funded, anti-enforcement lobby opposes passage and the GA. Sheriff’s Association is openly working to gut the legislation. Dustin Inman Society activist D.A. King is leading the fight for passage. He says he needs help with public awareness and contact to Gov Kemp urging him to stand up for passage. King has recent poll numbers on his side. DHS estimates show that only six states host more illegal aliens than Georgia. GA media is as silent on the entire matter as Gov. Brian Kemp.
