DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

The 'deportation bus' that has been making national news was in Douglas Monday, as part of the Michael Williams for governor campaign.

About 30 to 40 people came out to protest the deportation bus, and ask questions about candidate Michael Williams' plan to promote school safety, and of course, his plans to deal with illegal immigration.

The gathering was peaceful.

The tour continued to Tifton and will make a stop in Valdosta late Monday.

Republican Gubernatorial candidate Michael Williams spoke with a few protesters about his plans to bring in illegal immigrants.

His plan is to have local sheriff deputies to become active ICE Agents and make the deportation process faster.

“Nothing on that bus is wrong," Williams said. "We only talk about illegal immigration. We talk about Mexico. It’s the country that sits south of our border. You can’t get to our country from the south unless you go through Mexico. So everything is very fact-based, and that’s what we’re focusing on."

Many protesters complained that he didn't stay his full 30 minutes scheduled for questions. Williams says the protesters have to realize that his plans will make them safer.
