Opinion: Separate DACA from DREAM Act – and put immigration enforcement first, by D.A. King, Atlanta Journal Constitution, October 30, 2017
The obvious but mostly unpublicized danger of allowing a Congressional DACA amnesty “for the children” is that even now, illegal aliens are flowing over the border with children in tow. Are we to have an amnesty “for the children” every decade or so?
Opinion: Compassion for children of illegal immigrants shouldn’t outweigh law, by D.A. KING, Atlanta Journal Constitution, December 8, 2016
Given the lack of “mainstream media” coverage of this intentional and politically driven debacle, I triple-dog dare the AJC PolitiFact editors to challenge that statement.
Enforcing immigration laws puts Georgia on right side of history and popular opinion, by D.A. King, Atlanta Journal Constitution, February 7, 2016
Nowhere do the educators of our college youth mention that inconvenient concept of an equal application of the law that is supposed to protect all Americans and is the very basis of the civil rights movement. There is a reason for that.

Pro & Con: Should local public safety units enforce immigration laws?, by D.A. King (YES position), Atlanta Journal Constitution, October 19, 2009
Despite absurd claims to the contrary, no one is deported for a broken taillight or not having a driver’s license. Violation of American immigration laws is the singular reason for removal.
Thwarted in the effort to convince the Obama administration to end the voluntary program, the tried and true game is to play the racial-profiling card.
Should U.S. deny citizenship to children of illegal immigrants? Two views D.A. King: YES, by D.A. King, Atlanta Journal Constitution, June 17, 2009
One of the myths surrounding the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the current convoluted misinterpretation of its birthright citizenship clause is that automatic U.S. citizenship is granted to every child born on American soil.
It is not. Doing so was never the intention of Congress.
Federal database assures a legal work force, by D.A. King, Atlanta Journal Constitution, May 19, 2008
Voters in coming local elections should know that as of May 1, more than 60 of Georgia's 159 counties were in violation of state law by not having enrolled in the E-Verify system. Far too many municipal governments show the same disregard for the rule of law as well.
