Two Georgia Activists Address Trump Immigration Orders

Two Georgia activists who stand on polar opposites regarding illegal immigration released statements on Trump administration instructions issued yesterday by the Department of Homeland Security. One of the memos is titled “Enforcement of the Immigration Laws to Serve the National Interest” and another one is “Implementing the President’s Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements Policies,” which provides guidance to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Border Patrol on how to execute President Donald Trump’s Jan. 25 executive orders.

The Johnson Amendment: What’s the Big Deal?

By Randy Evans –

Until President Donald Trump pledged to “totally destroy” the Johnson Amendment, most Americans (except a few well-informed church leaders and tax lawyers) had no idea what he was talking about. After all, the law has apparently never been enforced or even discussed to any significant degree.

Tax Man Knocking on Georgia’s Door Re Internet Sales
