Republican's campaign for Georgia governor includes 'deportation bus'

"We're going to put them on this bus, and send them home", Williams says in a campaign video.

A large crowd of counter demonstrators has surrounded Michael Williams' Deportation Bus tour.

The Michael Williams Deportation Bus Tour kicks off Wednesday, May 16 by visiting each of Georgia's risky sanctuary cities: Clarkston, Decatur, and Athens.

In his profile on Facebook - in which he describes himself as "a fearless conservative" - his campaign has put a statement explaining that his journey will start on Wednesday, May 16 and will visit "each of the most risky sanctuary cities of Georgia", including Clarkston, Decatur, and Athens. "We have our bus tour ready to go, but it's not going to be one of those pansy, political bus tours".

YouTube quickly blocked users from viewing Williamson's video but eventually removed the "hate speech" ban late Wednesday morning.

"Politicians are using immigrants as a scapegoat for appealing to racist feelings among their voter base and at the same time threatening to undermine Georgia's economic vitality by promising policies that would drive out immigrants from our state", he told the Associated Press.

Ce's bringing the bus to Columbus Friday night.

Later, socialist party leader Diosdado Cabello accused the inmates of staging the revolt to spread intrigue ahead of the election. Rights groups and Maduro opponents have said several hundred political prisoners have been unfairly jailed.

The video has caused significant outrage among immigration activists and protesters swarmed his campaign office on Wednesday. Williams says in the ad that his bus will send immigrants living in the country illegally "home". The bus plans to make stops in Clarkston, Decatur, and Athens, which are Georgia's three sanctuary cities.

The ad, posted Tuesday, touts a "deportation bus".

For now, Williams' campaign ads seem to be safe - not unlike President Donald Trump's often inflammatory tweets, which Twitter has refused to take down because it would "hide important information people should be able to see and debate".

There was also a nice moment towards the end where the hosts shared a kumbaya moment about how even when they disagree, as McCain put it, "there's a respect level here between us".

"This is a great turnout of people who love refugees and immigrants, who recognize that the diversity in Clarkston has been a strength for our community", said Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry.

Georgia Democratic Party Latino Caucus Chair Antonio Molina says Republicans are using anti-immigrant scare tactics.

Joy Behar called it "the opposite of reality" and noted he's polling very low in the gubernatorial race (3 percent).
