State Rep. Matt Ramsey of Peachtree City has been named to the Local Hall of Shame by Immigrants’ List, a bipartisan political action committee.
Immigrants’ List recently unveiled the inductees into their second annual Local Hall of Shame — a list focused exclusively on the 10 worst anti-immigrant local politicians in America. Ramsey, a Peachtree City Republican, is on the list.
Starting in 2013, Senoia, as well as the Haralson and Turin areas, will be part of House District 72, represented by Ramsey.
“He may represent Peachtree City, but Matt Ramsey’s impact on working families is the pits,” said Immigrants’ List board member Ted Ruthizer. “Ramsey’s immigration law is causing Georgia to become one of the worst places in America for businesses to locate and create jobs.”
It’s already cost the Georgia’s economy an estimated $391 million – hurting Georgia’s businesses and working families. Georgia deserves better than this.”
The 2012 inductees include Joe Arpaio, an Arizona sheriff, and Kris Kobach, Kansas’s secretary of state and the author of legislation aimed at illegal immigrants.
The list also features lesser-known politicians, like Tennessee Sheriff Daron Hall, who reportedly forced a pregnant undocumented woman to be shackled by chains while giving birth.
Immigrants’ List describes itself as “a political action committee dedicated to meaningful immigration reform that unites families, promotes fair employment practices, and restores America’s welcoming status for those who seek freedom from persecution and a better way of life.”
