The Dustin Inman Society congratulates Gwinnet County Sherriff Butch Conway
D.A. King, president of the Georgia-based Dustin Inman Society, today offered his gratitude and support for Sheriff Butch Conway’s effort to take advantage of the thirteen year-old federal 287 (g) training and authority proposed for use in the Gwinnet jail.
“Gwinnett citizens and all Georgians owe Sheriff Conway a debt of gratitude for taking the lead in Georgia law enforcement in use of every tool available to not only reduce, but prevent crime in the community he is sworn to serve” said King.
The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s office has applied to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for numerous deputies to be trained by ICE to expand authority to aid in locating and removing criminal aliens. Presently, ICE is conducting a near month - long “surge” to study the level and volume of criminal alien activity in Gwinnett.
According to a 2008 Gwinnett Daily Post report, Sheriff Conway estimated that 60 percent of the 12,030 foreign-born inmates booked into the jail in 2007 were illegal aliens. According to traffic records, the Gwinnett County Police Department issued 3,379 citations for driving without a license in 2005. That’s roughly nine citations per day.
In 2007 that number jumped to fourteen no license driving arrests per day.
“The dangerous drug trafficking and gang crisis in Gwinnett combined with the public safety concerns of driving without being licensed should be an indicator of the clear need for the sheriff’s office to be trained to serve as force multipliers for our under staffed ICE agency” noted King.
King made the observation that no one is deported for a traffic infraction, only for U.S. immigration violations and that if Gwinnett County begins to aid federal authorities in deporting illegal aliens, it will be operating much closer to the way Mexico handles criminal activity.
“We urge quick approval of the sheriff’s application for 287 (g) training from ICE” ended King.
Named for a sixteen year-old Woodstock, Georgia youth who lost his life to illegal immigration, the Dustin Inman Society is opposed to illegal immigration, illegal employment and open borders.
