The “illegal” problem that we have in Cobb County is massive. The position held by Commissioners Tim Lee, Helen Goreham and Lisa Cupid on IMAGE is intolerable. Their vote on IMAGE could have begun to diminish the “illegal” problem by starting to “starve the beast.”
If income to illegals is cut off, they will depart Cobb for other areas or even better, return to their home countries. That will greatly improve conditions in Cobb County. Pressure on services and taxpayer costs will decrease as demands on health care services (primarily treatment for the uninsured,) education, law enforcement and courts and an untold multitude of welfare/poverty benefits (primarily “Anchor Baby” privileges, Medicaid, Food Stamps, WIC, free school lunches) will decline.
I ask that Lee, Goreham and Cupid reconsider their positions in IMAGE.
