For those readers who are following the “we must be careful” news story involving the fact that the Cobb County Board of Commissioners started the education process on the federal IMAGE certification process in 2010, announced the intention to apply more than a year ago and publicly signed an agreement with ICE in May, you can see the big ugly bald guy’s public comments (no laughing!) to the Board at Tuesday’s regular meeting and Chairman Tim Lee’s response. Anyone on the Board responding to a public comment is rather unusual.

Be advised that there is zero reason that Cobb cannot require IMAGE certification for all contractors. There is already a state law in place that requires use of E-Verify before a public contractor can have a bid accepted by a public employer like Cobb County. We did that in the Capitol in 2006. And zero reason that an ordinance that has already been sent to the county legal department to be drafted cannot see a vote at the next meeting on Tuesday July 24 – at 7:00 PM.

To many contractors, the terrifying part of the process of becoming IMAGE certified is a federal audit of past hiring documents called “I-9” forms that can expose any use of false or stolen documents – thereby exposing illegal alien workers who are taking food out of the mouths of American workers families.. This is the last thing many contractors want or will sit still for. The Chamber of Commerce and the construction lobby is using all of their considerable power to stall this until they can find an excuse to kill it after the primary election on July 31st.

Serious problems with contractors using bargain basement priced, taxpayer subsidized black market labor have been exposed multiple times here in Cobb County in the past. You can watch a 2010 WSB TV news report – one of several – here. You can also watch a 2011 Fox Five TV undercover report on your tax dollars going to dishonest contractors and illegal aliens.

Two commissioners, Bob Ott and Jo Anne Birrell have already started the ordinance process… three weeks ago. Bill Byrne, one of four candidates for the County Chairmanship, released a media advisory yesterday promising to use the power of the Chairman’s seat to get an IMAGE certification requirement in place. To my knowledge, this is the only candidate to do so. I have no idea where the other two commissioners, Woody Thompson and Helen Gorham stand on the IMAGE certification requirement for contractors. Hmmm…

After spending the last decade on illegal immigration, I can tell you that IMAGE certification is the ultimate tool to insure a legal workforce. Which is why it may never be introduced into the system.

I can also tell you that unless considerable public pressure is exerted on Cobb’s Board of Commissioners, including the current Chairman, this cost-free, 100% effective instrument to root-out the illegal alien infestation in our public-funded work crews will remain a little known, unused tool.

If you want to help, you can access instructions, background and contact information from a recent Dustin Inman Society “ACTION NEEDED” alert our organization sent out this week. If you want to put your name on our email list to receive future alerts you can see the link on the Dustin Inman Society Website’s Homepage.

All politics is local and silence is consent.

Editor’s note: D.A. King is president and founder of the pro-enforcement, Cobb-based Dustin Inman Society and a nationally recognized authority on illegal immigration.

Well since the "Liberal Media" is everyone that disagrees with you DA YOUR list of factual source must be pretty short!!

Dev: Every article I have read state the same FACTS, those FACTS are from very reliable sources, such as The Boston Globe, The NY Times, The Wall Street Journal. Never smoke and mirrors.

I don't NEED to do anything that you may suggest. That NEED business is for those who can't stand the FACTS.

Lib, you need to learn to distinguish between "facts" and "smoke and mirrors". Including voluntary returns in the "deportations" number is "smoke and mirrors".

Besides, Bush did not make any claims about departations, He was not into sending them back. You Obama apologists are the ones who insist on comparing them.

Dev: If you don't like the sources previously listed, you could google "deportations under Obama vs Bush", There are 158,000 sources.

Have a nice day.

Bush was (and is), an open borders proponent. His brother Jeb still speaks in favor of it. I, foe one, do not car e whether a person is left or right, GOP or DNC, if they re in favor of letting jobs be taken from Americans or allowing illegal aliens to work here not bothered by the nation's laws and law enforcers, then I am opposed to those suppose Americans.

Any efforts to compare removals of illegal is like arguing, my dog's bigger than yours. You cannot tell me that the supporters of this invasion are not only unpatriotic, but scofflaws.

Gordo: You have deduced that COBB BOC is interested in IMAGE, this is exactly opposite from what King has expressed in the above article. You have mistaken the board's listening for interest.

Grodo: The municipalities claim to be using e verify, but the results have yet to be filed. In other words there are 1200 municipalities in GA not filing/not using e verify. DA King wrote about this a few days ago.

The Cobb BOC has not instituted the image system nor are they close to ordering its use.

I am flattered that you believe I am Kevin Foley.

Believe what you wish, yup, yup, yup, weeeee!

Devlin: How did I know you were going to ask for documentation? These are deportations. George was busy starting wars based on lies.

To most people this is very common knowledge about OUR president. Since you get your news from Fox and Rush, it is most likely not common knowledge.

If you google this subject matter, you will find over 2 million results. A open mind is needed.

Okay, Lib. Cite the documentation. But, just for the record, let's only talk about actual deportations, not voluntary egresses.

Further, please quit mixing apples and oranges, I don't think anybody has claimed that Bush did a great job either. Seems to me the complaint is that the "government" has failed to do it's job."

Nobody has said that it is only since Obama got into office.

Talk about yelling at passing cars, maybe you better take alessonf rom your own comments.

Lib in Cobb is Kevin Foley and Kevin Foley is Lib in Cobb and the charade is getting old.

Oh, and BTW genius: All cities and counties that are supposed to be doing it are using E-Verify - according to the associations that lobby for those people.

And Obama has personally admitted to LA RAZA that his "deportation" numbers were misleading. I know, because King wrote about it. Like normal a liberal, Kevin Foley/Lib in Cobb believes everything the Obama media spews out.

I watched the video of King at the commissioners meeting. They seem quite interested in what he says.

Snake and DA: Just a reminder, which has significant documentation. The administration of President Obama has deported more undocumented immigrants in his first three years than G.W. Bush did in 8 years.

A thank you is in order from King. A short note of thanks on your blog will be just fine.

Snake: You are missing the very big picture here. The volatility of the immigration issue has caused the Cobb BOC to be tone deaf to King who has been screaming at passing cars for 10 years. The law requiring municipalities to use e Verify has been a dismal failure, the Image process has been met with very limited approval.

If King would use his energy to work toward compromise instead of building fences and sending "them" all back we would be in a better position.

President Obama is more than willing to meet and work toward a true compromise, it is the GOP and King and you who don't want any kind of compromise other than building a fortified fence around the US and deporting 11 million people. This attitude of the GOP was the reason why President Obama made the decision he made a few weeks ago involving 800,000 people who were brought here as children.

The GOP and King want the undocumented to pay taxes. The Dream Act was a perfect way to get to that point for the aforementioned 800,000 young people.

We as a nation can't build a fence and we can't deport 11 million people. It seems we cannot reach a compromise either. Compromise is not in the GOP vocabulary.

A perfect example of the typical Lib - nothing to say about the illegal labor proven over and over to be taking public paid-for jobs that should be going to legal workers. Just mindless four-year old type swipes at the one person around here who knows what he is talking about with the guts to stand up.

Thank you Lib in Cobb for once again showing yourself. Now, all we need is Kevin Foley the empty suit ( good one DA!) to weigh in on why protecting legal worklers is a "racist" idea.

Lib, don't you wish you had c-o-u-r-a-g-e? And do you know that it was DA King who brought IMAGE to Cobb?

Great work DA! And thank you!

With unemployment over 8% in Cobb County (of those who have not given up looking for work,) why would our Commissioners want to make it so easy for unlawful workers to take jobs from Georgians? When you vote this month, please keep that in mind. Tim Lee, do you want to keep your job?

Do you mean to tell us that the Cobb BOC is not listening to you DA? How dare they not pay attention to the man screaming out of the car window. Perhaps you should scream louder or scream something else.
