I have just read an article in the Associated Press about ICE Agents rounding up the illegal aliens living in Stillmore, Georgia. I think it’s fantastic that our State and Federal governments are finally taking positive steps to solve this problem. I am dismayed by the towns apparent lack of support for these actions.
The general population of Stillmore, Crider Poultry Plant owners, City Government and the local law enforcement officers do not care about the presence of these illegal aliens. Everyone’s main concern is the cheap labor and revenue that these illegal aliens generated for the community. Money, not morality is what the Americans of Stillmore want.
The citizens of Stillmore should be ashamed of themselves and their actions. The whole community has become facilitators of illegal aliens in the United States. Your city and its uncaring population are one of the problems that face this great country of ours.
One of the more positive aspects of the rounding up of the illegals in Stillmore is that the local poultry plant has increased the hourly wage by a dollar. With the lack of cheap illegal labor perhaps the company will be forced give Americans workers healthcare, retirement benefits and a descent wage.

Lief, You apparently think that if someone looks illegal, you can deport them. These people had IDs, mostly from North Carolina, or other documentation stating they were legal. The City of Stillmore does not have the right to stop and search anyone it wants as per our constitution.
