Columns by D.A. King published in the Marietta Daily Journal


  • D.A. KING: Anti-Trump rioters, the evil payoff of eight years of Barack Obama ‘Patriotism is racist’, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, November 8, 2016

    Safe at home and comfortably far away from their contemporaries who are dodging IEDs and bullets in foreign lands, angry “Trump is not my President” protesters around the country laughed for the cameras while they burned the Stars and Stripes — on Veterans Day.

  • Foreign language voter assistance latest move by Secretary of State, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, October 14, 2016

    To no one’s surprise, the leftists in the illegal alien lobby were quick to offer their gratitude and applause for Kemp’s progressiveness. Along with the ‘Asian Americans Advancing Justice,’ Jerry Gonzalez of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials Corp. immediately sent out his own press release.

  • D.A. KING: Transparency policy should result in a legal contractor work force, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, August 5, 2016

    Col. Boyce and his corps of volunteers not only overcame an entrenched establishment, incumbent and bully tactics, they beat the deep pockets of the business lobby and other unelected special interests who have far too much authority in government. Take it from a reluctant, longtime denizen of the Gold Dome: In 21st century Georgia, this happy outcome is the exception rather than the rule.

  • D.A. KING: Georgia conservatives lose again under Gold Dome, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, April 15, 2016

    Unless there is a badly needed executive order from Gov. Nathan Deal changing current policy at DDS, Georgia will continue to give illegal aliens, foreign diplomats and Mercedes Benz executives here on a legal visas the exact same driver’s license.

  • Odiferous state legislation has law enforcement opposition, by D.A.King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 25, 2016

    Why is this bill an odoriferous fraud? Because according to many senior Georgia local law enforcement officials – including Cobb Sheriff Neil Warren - they do not have the ability, training or equipment to verify a foreign drivers license. Never have. The sheriffs I have spoken to don’t even know if such equipment exists. There is no federal or state law that requires a foreign visitor to carry a passport for the cop to inspect, if he had the guidance to do so. Also, Sheriff Warren says his deputies do not have any training to decipher “lawful entry,” or visas and immigration documents or agreements made at the federal level.

  • Former illegal alien lobbyist not right fit for federal judge Read more: The Marietta Daily Journal - Former illegal alien lobbyist not right fit for federal judge, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 20, 2016

    WSB radio talk-show host, blogger and Fox News personality and Republican advisor Erick Erickson recently shocked his listeners with an endorsement of Dax Lopez for federal judge while telling his audience that this is the best Republicans can hope for.

  • Issues to watch: Illegal alien driver’s licenses, bureaucratic defiance and official English Read more: The Marietta Daily Journal - Issues to watch Illegal alien driver s licenses bureaucratic defiance and official English, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, December 13, 2015

    Don’t look for a scathing, breathless investigative news revelation on this refusal of a taxpayer-funded state office led by a politically-appointed bureaucrat defying a legitimate request from a state senator. This writer personally detailed the DDS refusal to forward the requested image to a room full of reporters at a July press conference in the Capitol and was met with yawns and the same glares all pro-enforcement Americans get from liberals.

  • Straw man anti-enforcement ‘Nazi’ smear on immigration, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, December 1, 2015

    Score one for a slight variation on the observation made on weak arguments by Mike Godwin in 1990. “Godwin’s law” asserts that “as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches — that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism.”

  • Georgia senators should block Lopez’s path, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, August 26, 2015

    For Obama-voter readers, this means that either or both of Georgia’s Republican U.S. Senators could end the consideration of pro-amnesty GALEO’s board member for federal judge tomorrow.

  • Death by illegal alien deterrent: End Georgia Sanctuary Counties Read more: The Marietta Daily Journal - Death by illegal alien deterrent End Georgia Sanctuary Counties, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, July 15, 2015

    So, for common sense Georgians looking for an issue to push in the next General Assembly, know this: Sheriffs in Fulton, DeKalb and Clayton counties have — quite proudly — made it policy to not honor ICE detainers for illegal aliens.

    If you doubt that astoundingly mindless and dangerous fact, just take a look at the websites of the illegal alien lobby groups like the corporate-funded GALEO where the Executive Director, Jerry Gonzalez, congratulates the counties for advancing the anti-enforcement cause.

    Gonzalez says releasing criminal illegal aliens makes us all safer.

  • Georgia GOP officials made nice at illegal alien fundraiser, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, May 13, 2015

    Secretary of State Brian Kemp and Attorney General Sam Olens, Republicans both, participated in the 12th annual GALEO “Power Breakfast” moneymaker last Friday. State Rep B.J. Pak (R-Lilburn) was also there.

    What do powerful Republican Georgia politicians helping finance the anti-enforcement GALEO have to do with the quote above from MALDEF’s Mario Obledo?

  • What’s next for illegals in ‘Georgiafornia’, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, April 19, 2015

    That illegal alien reward system here in Georgia, pushed by President Barack Obama, the ACLU, corporate-funded, anti-borders groups, the agriculture lobby and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce on many weak but willing politicians, was described as “California-like.”

    Whether my loyal Republican friends want to admit it or not, on capitulating to the crime of illegal immigration and selling out American workers, we are clearly on the road to becoming the California of the east — “Georgiafornia.”

  • By an unrecorded vote: Georgia Senate OKs driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, by D.A. King, Marietta daily Journal, April 11, 2015

    Understand this: The vote on McKoon’s amendment was intentionally conducted in a way such that there is no official record of how any senator voted. It was done with an off-the-vote-tally-machine, un-recorded, raise your hand vote while several senators scrambled around the chamber to avoid the video cameras that record each day’s chamber events. See my MDJ blog space for a link to the video.

  • GOP listening to big biz, not voters, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 22, 2015

    While the Dunwoody-based Atlanta newspaper and the NPR/GPTV crowd (apologies for my repetition) have done a stunningly efficient job of keeping a lid on “too much information,” Georgia has issued driver’s licenses and public benefits to about 15,000 “victims of borders” since 2012.

  • GOP hope and change: More foreign workers, and licenses for illegals Read more: The Marietta Daily Journal - GOP hope and change More foreign workers and licenses for illegals, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 16, 2015

    But there are brave and determined pro-enforcement conservative legislators under the Gold Dome who are willing to work to protect Georgia’s jobs and benefits. One of these Republican patriots is state Sen. Josh McKoon, (R-Columbus). He chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee.

  • Battle line in today's politics pits Donor Class vs. Americans, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 4, 2015

    The bill passed the Republican-controlled House by two votes.

    As a reminder and for the record: Republicans from Georgia’s U.S. House delegation voting for passage were Dr. Tom Price, Dr. Phil Gingrey, Rob Woodall, Jack Kingston, Doug Collins, Lynn Westmoreland and Tom Graves.

    Feel free to expand your at-home list of “Establishment Republicans” — I have.

  • Establishment House GOPers set on amnesty, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, December 9, 2014

    On subverting the Constitution and starting the illegal executive amnesty ball rolling down a path to open borders, these Republican congressional leaders could easily be labeled “Obama-Republicans.” The vote on whether to fund Obama’s amnesty with a $1 trillion omnibus funding bill is going to happen this week. I am urging my Rep to vote “HELL NO.”

  • GOP should listen to Price on amnesty, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, November 30, 2014

    U.S. Rep. Tom Price (R-Roswell) has come up with a very convincing combination of the two scenarios above. It is being called “the Price Plan.” Price is the incoming chairman of the powerful House Budget Committee. Speaker Boehner should listen to Price.

  • Note to Republicans on Obama amnesty decree: 'Not one more', by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, November 22, 2014

    How bad is it?

    In obedience to the corporate-funded, open borders La Raza Network’s years-long demand — and while he claims to want to only “deport criminals” — instead of expanding interior enforcement, Obama will end the Secure Communities program.

  • Deal silence on immigration costs him vote, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, October 14, 2014

    Those with a four-year memory span may remember that when Deal had to run against conservative, pro-enforcement Republicans in the 2010 primary he boasted continuously — and quite voluntarily — of his strong immigration enforcement intentions.

    Apparently Georgia’s Republican voting base could not be trusted to accept an “it’s too polarizing” attitude on illegal immigration way back then.

  • Obama amnesty plan a security nightmare, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, August 31, 2014

    Republicans running for federal office as conservatives — including for president — should be vetted for a rock-solid promise on their intention to A) reverse any executive action from Dear Leader outlined above and B) to use the fingerprints collected from the “victims of borders” to track, capture and process these illegal aliens with deportation proceedings if they ever restore the republic surrendered to the disciple of Saul Alinsky who now occupies the White House.

  • Immigration and ‘the children’: Obama’s border crisis a setup and Georgia's not ready Read more: The Marietta Daily Journal - Immigration and the children Obama s border crisis a setup and Georgia s not ready, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, July 30, 2014

    What Georgians — including Deal — should understand and prepare for is that all of this deceit isn’t even the main event in Obama’s scheme. Assuming the House Republicans stand strong Thursday, that would be an administrative amnesty declaration which is likely coming in the next month or so, unless he is stopped.

  • 11th District hopefuls answer questions on immigration, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, June 24, 2014

    As a service to readers, I submitted three questions on immigration to Barry Loudermilk and Bob Barr, the two Republican candidates in the July 22 runoff for the 11th District U.S. House seat that includes much of Cobb County. A slightly edited (for space) version of the questions and responses is printed below.

  • The Board of Regents and a ‘no illegal left behind’ lawsuit, by D.A. King, Marieta Daily Journal, May 4, 2014

    In response, the resentful illegal alien lobby has been screaming that the policy is blatant “hate,” “segregation” — and my personal favorite: “a violation of Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution” and should be overturned by a judge.

  • Welcome to Republican-ruled Georgiafornia, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, March 28, 2014

    • Despite having been educated on the appointment, the state Senate confirmed Gov. Nathan Deal’s shocking appointment of a radical anti-enforcement immigration activist to the Board of Corrections. Rocio Del Milagro Woody, also on the board of Jerry Gonzalez’s Jane Fonda-funded GALEO, will serve her five-year term after all.

  • Some breakfast questions for Governor Deal, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 27, 2014

    Unlike Arizona — where the Republican governor issued an Executive Order to prevent it from happening — since 2012, Georgia has been issuing drivers licenses to a class of Obama-protected illegal aliens who have been rewarded with delayed action on deportation. This law can be changed and at least one bill is pending under the Gold Dome to stop these illegals from keeping or renewing their driver’s license.

  • Let debate goers decide if imigration is an issue in senate race, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 11, 2014

    While he is silent on the issue now, in 2011, Gov. Nathan Deal repeatedly used the estimate that the Georgia budget is being hit to the tune of $2.4 billion annually on the cost of illegal immigration. Perhaps this is down the priority list for the people asking questions of U.S. Senate candidates at debates, but many Georgia voters are likely to regard this as “real money” after two decades of watching their rule of law disappear along with their jobs.

  • GOP-run legislature should end state's issuance of drivers licenses to illegals and put official English on ballot, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 4, 2014

    As a reluctant and long-time denizen of the Gold Dome, this humble writer can well remember the hard-won Republican-led battles of the last decade against encouraging and rewarding illegals with a license to drive. Which makes the current official silence on this dangerous policy more than a little alarming.

  • We should repeat 2006- not 1986, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, July 2, 2013

    Along with the liberal media, ever-helpful and caring Democrats Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi instruct the Republicans that another amnesty would help them re-gain the White House.

  • The many faces of Marco Rubio..., by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, May 22, 2013

    Marco Rubio is often described as a “fresh face” in GOP politics. We surmise that fully depends on which of his faces are in question. Here’s hoping for the expanded recognition of the arrogance and contempt he clearly holds for the intelligence and memory of pro-enforcement Americans

  • Amnesty-again? Remember 1986, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, April 14, 2013

    Don’t like the legal and accurate term “illegal alien?” “Undocumented Democrat” is just as descriptive — and accurate.

    By 2000, according to what was then known as the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the legalization of 1986 only served to increase illegal immigration. Golly! Why? Because rewarding any action creates more of the same. And because the false promises of future border security, future enforcement of temporary visa holder departures and future work place enforcement never happened.

  • Opposition to IMAGE offers lessons on commissioners, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 19, 2013

    Lesson: Tim Lee’s word has little worth. And he is willing to prove it.

  • IMAGE would help end amnesty in Cobb, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 1, 2013

    It needs to be pointed out yet again that in 2009 and 2010 illegal workers were found to be helping build the Cobb Courthouse, taking jobs from unemployed Cobb citizens who had paid into the SPLOST that funded the project. And that demanding that we do everything possible to safeguard public funds, our tax funded jobs and to discourage ID fraud is not regarded as “punitive” by the voting majority of Cobb residents.

  • Which side will Cobb Board pick on IMAGE? Yours? Or the illegals?, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 17, 2013

    Maybe they have forgotten the multiple 2010 news reports of repeated revelations of illegal workers taking coveted taxpayer-funded construction jobs building the Cobb Court House. Or the fact that it happened so many times and became so embarrassing that the sheriff had to be called in with armed guards to check workers’ IDs at the entry to the Court House construction site.

  • Jobs, the Cobb GOP and a brewing scandal, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 8, 2013

    It is hard to decide if it is more fascinating that Georgia’s decades-long illegal immigration and illegal employment crisis was not a central issue for Founding Fathers-quoting state legislators — or that no one in the audience brought up the fact that Georgia contains more, ahem … “undocumented workers” than Arizona. We also have had recent unemployment rates of 8 percent to 9 percent and even higher for black and Hispanic Americans.

  • Amnesty-again wrong answr for GOP in 2016, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, November 9, 2012

    Mitt Romney’s loss has the establishment GOP — including in Georgia — scratching its head, wringing its hands and chattering semi-coherently with advice about how to retake the White House from the socialists. The “conservative” consternation comes with a predictable, disproven and suicidal scheme as a solution: Another amnesty for illegals. The promised result? “More of the Hispanic vote.”

  • KSU should hold balanced disscussion of immigration reform - but don't hold your breath, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, October 17, 2012

    Umm …“Permissivists?” Head scratcher, isn’t it? Let me help. Somebody has apparently concocted a word to describe the “We want open borders, uninhibited migration is a human right…” agenda. It is no-doubt intended as a roll-off-the-tongue opposite for “immigration restrictionist” — those dastardly people who demand that immigration into the U.S. be legal, come in manageable numbers, be sustainable and that it benefit the United States of America.

  • Are you better off than you were four years ago?, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, September 19, 2012

    Americans who have been constantly told — and accepted as fact — that “undocumented workers” cannot access welfare benefits may be asking what Obama’s “come get ‘em” food stamp program has to do with illegal aliens. Here’s what: The magic “anchor babies” — children born to illegal alien parents in the U.S. — are currently regarded as automatic U.S. citizens and are eligible for welfare at birth. Including food stamps. And Medicaid. And more…

  • Putting Americans back to work should be a no-brainer for Cobb Commission - but isn't, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, July 20, 2012

    A hint: It was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that filed lawsuits to stop the requirement that many federal contractors use the E-Verify database. (It was the U.S. Chamber that challenged Arizona’s 2007 E-Verify law, all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court — and lost.) It was the Georgia Chamber of Commerce — along with the ACLU — that put up the strongest opposition to the 2011 Georgia law (HB 87) that expanded the 2006 state requirement that public employers and their contractors use E-Verify to also include most private employers.

  • Cobb BOC not using federal IMAGE toll to protect jobs, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, July 3, 2012

    Until Ruler Obama says that Social Security and ID document fraud is a protected crime for illegal aliens, this is a no-brainer of a decision for BOC members who genuinely desire to honor “real” (legal) immigrants, American citizens and protect taxpayers from funding illegal labor.

  • Constitution shredded...but GOP remains mostly silent on reversing amnesty decree, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, June 21, 2012

    Want to see 40-something illegal aliens who escaped capture at the border last week “document” that they are really 29 year-old, victimized graduates of high school in Any Town USA … through a government provided translator? Just watch the “let me show you my papers” fraud coming if this travesty of a mockery of a sham is allowed to move forward. And while Republicans run the U.S. House. And in a presidential election year.

  • Some bothersome facts on illegal immigration, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, May 1, 2012

    Georgia officially ranks No. 6 nationwide and has more illegals than Arizona. Georgia unemployment hovers around 9 percent. The conservative estimate is that 7 percent of Georgia’s workforce consists of black-market labor. English is an optional language

  • D.A. King: Will Deal uphold promise to ban illegal students?, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, March 20, 2012

    There is a battle in the Georgia Capitol on whether the Board of Regents — the people who run the taxpayer-built University System of Georgia (USG) — will be finally forced to stop admitting illegal aliens into Georgia’s public universities and Tech Schools. It is quite educational to watch.

  • Newt needs ‘integrity upgrade’ on immigration, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, January 29, 2012

    Last week Newt Gingrich has efficiently — and one can only hope, sufficiently — exposed his true inner character and shameless absence of any sliver of integrity or core values on illegal immigration. GOP primary voters should take careful note before they end up with a choice of amnesty from Barack Obama or amnesty from 40-odd-year Washington insider Newt Gingrich.

  • House bill would halt illegal immigrants’ admission to Georgia’s public universities, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, January 18, 2012

    Georgia’s House Bill 59, from state Rep. Tom Rice (R-Gwinnett), is essentially a bill that says all public universities and tech schools in Georgia must ask for proof of eligibility from student applicants for admission and verify that aliens who apply are indeed eligible, using legal immigration status.

    It should be passed ASAP

  • Prediction - Media in New Year will continue to ignore fact that enforcement works, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, December 29, 2011

    Consider the ubiquitous campaign-driven “scientific immigration polls” containing questions that perpetuate the straw man argument that since it would be (regrettably) difficult to deport every illegal by sundown tomorrow, the only other option must be to begin another massive legalization. These skewed polls intentionally omit the proven and recognized effective reasonable solution called “attrition through enforcement.”

  • D.A. King: Gingrich guilty of ‘crackpot immigration trickery’, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, December 2, 2011

    Even if the newly legalized aliens were denied the opportunity to become American citizens as we are told, how long would take the ACLU and La Raza to organize nationwide marches in American streets with millions of “victimized” screamers demanding citizenship — and the vote?

  • Adios, Newt - Nothing ‘humanitarian’ about Gingrich amnesty proposal, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, November 24, 2011

    For Newt Gingrich, it seems that amnesty is an every-25 year “humanitarian” project.

  • Fundamental change? American student's freedom of speech lawsuit dismissed in California, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal (blog), November 21, 2011

    A note here: Naverrette knows very well that “white” is not the opposite of “Mexican” and that one does not exclude the other. “Mexican” describes a nationality. The terms Latino and Hispanic denote ethnicity, not race. Just ask one some of the proud Hispanic-American members on the board of the Dustin Inman Society.

  • D.A. King: Enforcement works — even if Mexico doesn’t like it, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, October 27, 2011

    This is the ongoing attrition of the illegal population through self deportation because of fear of enforcement that was fully expected when the laws were drafted.

    Mexican President Felipe Calderon is complaining about what he called “irrational” immigration laws in the United States.

  • A Letter I’d Like to Read About Immigration Reform and Agriculture, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal - blog, October 17, 2011

    For a variety of reasons, it will never happen, but below is an outline of a statement I would enjoy seeing made public by the majority of Georgia legislators who had the courage to vote “YEA” on Georgia Rep. Matt Ramsey’s immigration enforcement bill earlier this year. – D.A. King

  • D.A. King: Open borders high on Perry’s agenda, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, October 11, 2011

    Like former Mexican president Vicente Fox, Perry, the would-be guardian of American security and sovereignty, has proclaimed his support for open borders more than once since becoming governor of Texas.

    You read that correctly.

  • D.A. King: Perry record on immigration abysmal, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, September 20, 2011

    Nobody in what remains of our American Republic wants Barack Obama to be a one-term bad memory more than this long-time American. That said, count this American as firmly — and now actively — opposed to nominating Texas Gov. Rick Perry to serve as his replacement.

  • D.A. King: Georgia GOP brass silent on Obama's amnesty coup, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, August 28, 2011

    More than a week after Barack Hussein Obama made it clear that some immigrants are more equal than others and that there are groups of people for whom American borders and immigration laws do not apply, the natural assumption for readers would be to expect outraged reaction from Georgia's conservative elected officials in Congress including press releases, informative posts explaining Obama's anti-enforcement move and the assurance of oversight hearing, investigations and strongly worded protests.

  • When it comes to immigration, the U.S. has no need to apologize, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, July 20, 2011

    The No. 1 country of origin for legal immigrants? Mexico, sending about twice as many (139,120) as No. 2, the People's Republic of China, at 70,863.

  • Pro-law Americans turning tide on immigration, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, June 17, 2011

    Raise your hand if you think that these same "intellectuals" would be pecking out the same drivel if the hordes of invading illegals were English-speaking, potential conservative voters coming from Manitoba.

    It gets worse for the left: A bill recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith that would make use of E-Verify a national mandate has a real chance of becoming law.

  • Coming weeks will define illegals issue for GOP, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, April 10, 2011

    We should all pay attention to what happens with the best state immigration enforcement bill in the nation. And watch for any effort to dilute, delay or kill the bill that would cause a nearly immediate mass exodus of illegals from the Peach State.

  • Final week's goal should be passage of bill on illegals, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, March 30, 2011

    Last week about 5,000 screaming, chanting, resentful illegal aliens and the remora-like subversives who support them took over Washington Street in front of the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

    Many carried signs that said "UNDOCUMENTED AND UNAFRAID" and "WE WILL NOT LEAVE!" and "NO TO HB 87!" and "LEGALIZATION FOR ALL" and "WE WILL NOT COMPLY!" The Capitol grounds looked and sounded like the televised mass rallies that take place in chaotic Third World nations on the way to revolution.

  • House immigration bill 87 the right choice for Georgia, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, March 18, 2011

    Senate Bill 40, described as an enforcement measure to address illegal immigration in Georgia, passed the state Senate Monday. If we are lucky, that will be the last we hear of this bill.

    As an American who has been studying our illegal immigration crisis for a decade, let me just say that SB 40 was the most poorly written, contradictory, unworkable piece of legislation I have ever seen make its way to the Senate floor. But I have only been going to the Georgia Capitol for eight years.

  • Battle lines drawn on immigration enforcement bill, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 18, 2011

    The battle lines on ending the ongoing de facto state amnesty, real enforcement in Georgia and the outcome of HB 87 have been drawn. On one side is the much of the business community, the Farm Bureau, the ACLU, the state Democratic Party - and the Chamber of Commerce Republicans.

    The other side is made up of the Rule of Law Republicans and the majority of the citizens of Georgia.

  • E-VERIFY enemies and the H2A visa, by D.A. King, Martietta Daily Journal, January 19, 2011

    Unless the Chamber of Commerce here in Georgia has already been successful in killing them in the back rooms of the Capitol, there should be one or two bills requiring all employers to use E-Verify introduced here in Georgia.

    The business lobby has already teamed up with the radical ethnic-based illegal alien lobby and started bullying legislators who may be willing to protect jobs for law-abiding workers by stopping the hiring of illegal aliens

  • Gold Dome support needed in solution to illegal immigrant problem: Simple enforcement, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, December 14, 2010

    The real culprits in this mess are the employers who take advantage of the fact that they have a better chance of being struck by lightning than being punished by the Obama administration for illegally hiring taxpayer-subsidized, illegal, replacement labor ... while we struggle to pay unemployment benefits to jobless citizens.

    Everyone can see what is happening here.

  • DREAM vote coming in lame duck Congress, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, November 23, 2010

    Know this: If the DREAM Act were approved, the chances of resentful, newly legalized former illegal aliens and their families who have been raised on vicious identity politics becoming immigration enforcement stalwarts when they gain the ability to vote are slim and none. These are the folks who are even now - as illegals - marching with the ACLU demanding an end to enforcement of our immigration laws.

  • D.A. King: Immigration should benefit U.S., not just immigrants, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, October 29, 2010

    is worth the trouble to go online and read the KSU conference "schedule of activities" for other headings for oh-so-enlightened presentations. My favorite title is "Mayans, Mexicans, Public Policy, Applied Anthropology and the limits of Highway Safety in the Suburbs." (Alan LeBaron, a KSU professor). I am not making any of this up ... honest.

  • Dream Act amnesty for illegals should be nixed, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, September 21, 2010

    The related trickery, pandering, maneuvering and name calling in the senate are scheduled to start today.

    Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media is doing a partial job of telling the American people what the amnesty legislation really entails.

  • Illegal Immigration - the candidates sound off, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, August 1, 2010

    ON WEDNESDAY I posed six questions on illegal immigration, via a column on the editorial pages of the Marietta Daily Journal, to our three remaining major candidates for governor: Roy Barnes, Nathan Deal and Karen Handel. I promised to include their answers in a follow-up column.

    All three read that column, and here are their answers. (Note: All responses came after the preliminary injunction ruling in Arizona.)

  • D.A. King: Candidate questions, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, July 27, 2010

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Georgia ranks 50th among the states in most year-over-year job losses and has lost more jobs than any other state except California.

    Georgia ranks sixth in the nation for the population of "undocumented workers" and is home to more black-market labor than the state of Arizona. Most Georgians realize that illegal immigration is not a separate issue from "jobs, jobs jobs."

    Georgia law does not give the Board of Regents a free hand in making its own policy. It says that governing body "shall set forth, or cause to be set forth, policies regarding postsecondary benefits that comply with all federal law including but not limited to public benefits as described in 8 U.S.C. Section 1611, 1621, or 1623."

  • D.A. King: ACCG, GMA lobbying against stronger law on aliens, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, March 16, 2010

    The Association County Commissioners of Georgia and the Georgia Municipal Authority are not exactly well-known, household names to the average Georgian. They should be.

  • D.A. King: Some observations on the crime of illegal immigration, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, February 26, 2010

    It would be a mistake to gloat about the likely demise of the 2010 "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" scam.

    From the far-left fringe like the ACLU and the rabid, ethnic-based open-borders lobby, illegal immigration - and the growing constituency it brings - is about increasing political power needed to tear down America, its traditions, common language and our national unity. Not to mention the hated immigration laws

  • Change comes to Cobb: It’s ‘Adios’ to ‘business license’, by D.A. King, Marietta Daily Journal, July 23, 2008
