In an effort to appeal to conservative voters, a Republican candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race has unveiled what he calls the “Deportation Bus Tour.”

State Sen. Michael Williams plans to take the bus along with him to the state’s sanctuary cities to show his support for the deportation of illegal immigrants.

In a press release, Williams’s campaign said the tour will “expose how dangerous illegal aliens ruin local economies, cost American jobs, increase healthcare costs and lower education standards.”

- GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly kicked off a 10-day, 40-city bus tour Tuesday, saying he hoped to unite Republicans and Democrats who are sick of overreaching government.

State Senator and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Michael Williams announced Tuesday the Michael Williams Deportation Bus Tour one week before the Peach State’s primary “to shine a light on the dangers of sanctuary cities and the overwhelming problem of illegal immigration.”

In the newly released campaign advertisement, Williams says, “We’re going to implement my 287(g) deportation plan to fill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from.”

Williams, who is a former co-chair of President Donald Trump’s Georgia campaign, said, “We’re not just going to track them and watch them roam around our state. We’re going to put them on this bus and send ’em home.”

The 287(g) immigration program that Williams speaks of allows a state or local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with Immigration and Customs Enforcement in order to receive delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions.

In the official press release, Williams’ campaign says he is “the most outspoken anti-illegal candidate in Georgia’s history.”

In closing the advertisement, Williams says, “If you’re as tired, as I am, with politicians that do nothing but talk and you want to see this bus filled with illegals, vote Michael Williams on May 22.

Williams is one of seven GOP candidates seeking to replace Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, who is completing his second term in office.

A recent poll conducted by the University of Georgia found that 3 percent of voters say they support him.
