DEAR EDITOR:

Cobb County will soon need to recertify its participation in the U.S. Government’s IMAGE (ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers) program, a program which, in conjunction with E-Verify, is designed to weed out and prevent illegal immigrants from using false documents to obtain employment and commit other forms of identity fraud. Commissioners JoAnn Birrell, Keli Gambrill, Bob Ott and Chairman Mike Boyce have been supportive in the past; Commissioner Cupid is a Democrat whose support is, at best, questionable.

Citizens of Cobb should be grateful for the support of this very important program by four of our five commissioners, and I certainly thank them for their effort to ensure our laws are enforced. We trust that all the tools available to the commissioners to protect our tax dollars will be used, and that companies who wish to do business with Cobb be required to apply for IMAGE as a precondition to being considered.
