GALEO’s Jerry Gonzalez opposes IMAGE certification for city governments
Just when the Average Joe might think the anti-borders mob has hit peak crazy, GALEO’s Angry Jerry Gonzalez explains to a Georgia newspaper that verifying ID used in the hiring process and use of E-Verify along with voluntary audits of HR records equates to… wait for it… a “white nationalist agenda.”
Jerry Gonzalez is Executive Director of the corporate-funded (Coca Cola, Georgia Power, State Farm Insurance, Southwest airlines, Cox Enterprises, Western Union…) Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials in Atlanta. GALEO marches in the streets protesting any immigration enforcement, lobbies in the Georgia Capitol against any legislation designed to make life difficult for illegal aliens – while referring to them as “immigrants” – against official English and photo voter ID, – you know the drill.
We have a long history of fighting the GALEO machine here.
Angry Jerry’s comments came in a news report in the Marietta Daily Journal on the upcoming vote to renew the city of Marietta’s IMAGE certification. For a quick idea of what the IMAGE program is, think of it as E-Verify on steroids. Here is a excerpt from the official IMAGE website:
“Undocumented workers secure jobs through fraudulent means such as presenting false documents, completing fraudulent benefit applications and stealing someone’s identity. To combat unlawful employment and reduce vulnerabilities that help illegal aliens gain such employment, ICE announced the Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers (IMAGE) program in July 2006. This program assists employers to develop a more secure and stable workforce. It also enhances fraudulent document awareness through education and training.”
Note: Since the IMAGE audits are intended to catch illegal aliens using fake and stolen ID documents to get hired, we think the use of the goofy “undocumented worker” term on the ICE/IMAGE site is a leftover from the nightmare Obama years. The victims of borders have plenty of (illegal) documents.
In 2012, this pro-enforcement writer worked long and hard to see IMAGE certification for the county HR department in my home of Cobb County and in the two cities in the county that also are IMAGE certified. Jerry doesn’t like that.
Never let a massacre by a lunatic go to waste
Gonzalez, who is known to scream at and chase down pro-enforcement advocates – even if they are diminuative women, told the MDJ the (IMAGE certification) renewal is likely to further strain the relationship between Latinos and elected officials because it comes at an especially bad time. After the horrific killings in El Paso. And actual enforcement in Mississippi.
“Two days after a white nationalist committed a domestic terrorist attack against Mexicans and people of Mexican descent in El Paso, there were massive immigration raids in this country as well, with the president pushing a white nationalist agenda,” Gonzalez said. “That’s the kind of alliance the City Council will be allying with. … I don’t think the city of Marietta needs to be pushing a white nationalist agenda like the president is pushing.”
How will we know when they hit peak crazy – and disgusting?
