Republicans in Georgia are salivating at the chance to finally establish some transparency in Biden's administration.
One of the problems most plaguing Georgia right now is "the chaotic flood of President Joe Biden’s illegal migrants into their state."
Republicans like Representative Jesse Petrea think they may have found the solution:
House Bill 136.
"A very simple public safety bill," according to Petrea. "It requires the Department of Corrections to post quarterly on their official website the number of criminal illegals in our Georgia correctional system."
What's being called the "critical hurdle" in this process is getting approval from the 32-member committee that is currently chaired by Representative Richard Smith. That committee decides which bills are allowed onto the State's floor for a vote.
"I’ve got to get on and off the House floor and I’ve got to do it by Monday, and I think I can," Petrea claimed. "My chances for passage in the Senate would be very good."
However, D.A. King, the founder of the New Dustin Inman Society, says that a similar bill "was stopped in the Republican rules committee of the House in 2019."
"The resistance from the GOP establishment comes from the fact that this bill will create hard, accurate, and official numbers on at least one monetary cost of illegal immigration in Georgia — that being the cost of prison and incarceration," King said.
"We have learned in committee that there are about 1,500 criminal aliens in the prison system with ICE detainers. But we know there are more criminal aliens because, obviously, all criminal aliens in the system do not have ICE detainers. I personally think it could be as high as another third.
We also learned that the cost of prison confinement is $73 per day. If you do the math on the $73 per day times the 1,500 ICE detainers, you come up with about $40 million a year that taxpayers are paying for the incarceration of these undocumented workers. That number will obviously go up."
