Concerns over Gwinnett Daily Post Normalization of Hate Group Leader
(Norcross, GA) August 13, 2019
To the Gwinnett Daily Post Editor:
On July 31, 2019, Gwinnett County Commissioner Marlene Fosque hosted a town hall meeting centered around the controversial 287(g) program. The commissioner promised neutrality on the issue but failed to deliver when Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway sent D.A. King to speak on his behalf. Beyond the hypocrisy of sending a representative from an anti-immigrant group to speak about a law that targets immigrants, there is concern that King’s participation at the community meeting validates and normalizes anti-immigrant sentiment in Gwinnett County.
