Life has been a nightmare for Woodstock’s Kathy Inman since an illegal alien separated her family forever on Father’s Day weekend, 2000.

While on their way to the North Georgia Mountains for a long-planned camping and fishing trip, a speeding car driven by an illegal alien crashed into their family vehicle in Ellijay, GA. When Billy and Kathy woke up from their comas weeks later, they were told their only child, Dustin Inman, had been killed in the crash. Dustin had been buried. They missed the funeral.

Kathy learned she would spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair because of the spinal and brain injuries incurred in the crash.

The illegal alien driver escaped custody and is living in Mexico. He is wanted by ICE.

In dedication that amazed us all, Billy Inman, worked his job as a delivery driver and took care of Kathy in their home after the needless tragedy until his death at age fifty-five in 2019. Billy was immensely proud that he and Kathy were able to go to been invited to Washington D.C. and speak to Trump-era officials on behalf of other victims of illegal immigration. They were invited guests at the official launch of the Trump administration’s Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office (VOICE) in Washington, D.C.

Kathy now requires care day and night to remain in her home. According to family members, she is nearly out of money to pay for the home care. Kathy is understandably horrified at the alternative to staying in her own home.

Kathy Inman’s sister Leigh Kelly has set up a ‘Gofundme’ account for people who are able to help Kathy stay at home.

Illegal aliens have an easier time with donations

We hear a lot in the news about the plight of victims of borders who are today’s protected class. We see the corporate-funded, anti-enforcement ad campaigns telling us “Families Belong Together.” A quick Goggle search shows a large number of GoFundMe accounts set up to benefit illegal aliens. Here is one that brought in  $774, 432 for illegal “migrants” who were separated from their families because of borders and immigration enforcement.

I am told Kathy’s care is costing nearly $10,000 a month. Her family will never be together again.

We don’t know if we can raise as much money for Kathy Inman as anti-borders liberals give to illegal aliens. But we are hoping that Americans who are able will contribute and/or pass on this plea to help Kathy Inman stay in her home in Woodstock, Georgia.

Americans are victims of illegal immigration too.

Help Kathy stay at home here.

King Keeps Lawmakers in Hot Seat Over Immigration

Immigration proponent D.A. King

ELLIJAY, Ga – Immigration enforcement proponent D.A. King raised concerns about the future of federal program 287(g) and Governor Brian Kemp’s dedication to ending illegal immigration in Georgia.

King started by highlighting his better part of two decades focused on the issues of illegal immigration. What’s more, he serves as President and Founder of the Dustin Inman Society, a 501(c)(4). This nonprofit was formed in 2005 in honor of Dustin Inman who died after Gonzalo Harrell-Gonzalez, a Mexican national rear-ended the vehicle of Billy and Kathy Inman while stopped at a traffic light in Ellijay. Harrell-Gonzalez would later flee the country after his recovery from a local hospital. Injuries sustained from Billy and Kathy Inman were life-altering enough that they were unable to attend their son’s funeral.

Dustin’s Father would spend his remaining years advocating for tougher immigration policies while caring for his wife until his death of a heart attack on June 7, 2019.

One of King’s concerns is the fate of the federal program 287(g), which was designed to help local law enforcement ID, process, and expedite the removal of aliens with criminal or pending charges. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security acknowledges the program has contributed to over nine hundred assault convictions and nearly 40 individuals convicted of homicide, just in 2020 alone. King believes the Biden Administration will take a blanket amnesty approach that threatens the program. Currently, six agencies in Georgia use the 287(g) program.

Governor Brian Kemp’s in King’s crosshairs as well for his alleged failed campaign promise on immigration. With heightened awareness on the economy, social justice, and the pandemic, King says, “he [Kemp] has betrayed them” on the issue of immigration enforcement. While Kemp was vocal about the issue during his 2018 bid for Governor, Kemp failed to mention immigration in his State of the State Address to legislators on January 13 of this year.

Consequently, King vows to continue putting pressure on lawmakers to ensure immigration enforcement policy isn’t lost in the conversation, especially as we enter the 2022 race for Governor.

News for anti-enforcement Metro-Atlanta Sheriffs: Georgia law requires all jailers to report incarcerated illegal aliens to DHS

Governor Brian Kemp remains silent on illegal immigration

Written and submitted By D.A. King

In 2011, Aurelio Mayo Perez, an illegal alien, was booked into the Cobb County jail for no driver’s license but released due to an immigration enforcement reduction edict from then-President Barack Obama. Two years later, Mayo Perez was charged with aggravated child molestation and rape. The name of the ten-year old girl he was convicted of repeatedly molesting is not available.

Last week, newly sworn Cobb County Sheriff Craig Owens held an elaborate press conference packed with invited anti-enforcement activists and proudly announced his termination of the 287(g) program. The Marietta Daily Journal described the event’s big finish with “…as the event ended, and a mariachi band began to play, the mood in the room was decidedly celebratory. The new sheriff even took to the floor and waltzed for a moment, reveling in his audience’s approval.”  Cobb County Deputy Sheriff Loren Lilly – killed in a 2007 traffic crash by an unlicensed illegal alien driver – was unable to attend.  

Democrat Commission Chairwoman Lisa Cupid pronounced Owens’ decision “bold, necessary, and overdue.” Cobb’s new District Attorney, Flynn Broady weighed in with “this is going to make our community safer.” We recommend reading the entire MDJ report

Created by Congress in 1996, and signed into law by Bill Clinton, the voluntary 287(g) program is a tool used to expand the authority of local law enforcement to locate and report to ICE illegal aliens, usually in county jails. It’s a deterrent. Then-Senator Joe Biden voted in favor of passage. 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Owens claims “the program morphed into one that profiled immigrants through traffic stops, which resulted in them being deported on misdemeanor charges.” While Sheriff Owens – a former Cobb County policeman – is certainly free to smear his fellow law enforcement officers with shameless accusations of profiling, he should understand that it’s illegal aliens who are deported and that removal is the punishment for illegal immigration, not traffic violations. 

Jose Alfaro-Contraras, an illegal alien from El Salvador, was one of the gunmen in an April, 2015 armed robbery of the owner of a check-cashing store in Duluth. A year earlier, Alfaro-Contraras had been in the Gwinnett County jail on a shoplifting charge. He was released because “minor crime.”

The above examples are taken from a 2017 report “Jail records reveal immigrants not deported after minor crimes later commit worse ones” from Atlanta’s Fox Five TV News investigative reporter Randy Travis.

In Gwinnett County, on his first day in office, Sheriff Keybo Taylor made his enforcement policy clear when he quit the 287(g) program: “What we will not be doing is notifying ICE of anybody’s immigration status in the jail or any of our facilities…” said Taylor at his own presser. He told a local NPR interviewer 287(g) is slanted towards “people of color.” 

“So basically, what that program started to do was target, uh, you know, people of color that were in this country that’s undocumented, so, you know, it became, you know, a racist issue for me…”, 

Taylor says he would rather focus on gang members. I was curious, so I checked with experts on gangs in Gwinnett and the skin color concern Taylor expressed. But on that topic Sheriff Taylor does have worries about borders “…crime and criminals…they don’t, they do not respect borders, so, you know, it’s nothing to come from Atlanta to Gwinnett County…” says Taylor. Indeed.

 

In print and radio interviews, both sheriffs have done a remarkable job of learning and adhering to the anti-287(g) talking points distributed by the far-left. Below are some of those tips from a 2008 ACLU ‘toolkit.’ 

 

‘How to oppose 287(g) agreements in your state or locality’

 

* Always describe how police enforcement of immigration laws endangers public safety for everyone.

* Assert that local police of immigration laws will result in widespread racial profiling.

* Assert that immigration enforcement is the responsibility of the federal government.

* Assert that police resources are stretched thin already.

 

Georgia law: A ‘Plan B’ to address anti-enforcement sheriffs

Attention Georgia prosecutors, including Flynn Broady in Cobb County: Independent of 287(g), longstanding (2006) state law (OCGA 42-4-14) requires jailers to check the immigration status of incoming foreign prisoners. “If the foreign national is determined to be an illegal alien, the keeper of the jail or other officer shall notify the United States Department of Homeland Security, or other office or agency designated for notification by the federal government.” 

This “Plan B” would be much more effective if it is actually enforced and if Gov. Kemp would end his silence on illegal immigration. See the Dustin Inman Society Brian Kemp file here.
