Henderson County Commissioners were harassed for defending our Constitution by an illegal alien attorney at the 5:30PM commissioner meeting on Wednesday, 7/10/19, regarding the 287 (g) program. This pompous Pappas creepy lawyer even called for the resignation of Commissioners Grady Hawkins and Rebecca McCall, both of whom defended their comments and our sovereignty.
As you recall, ATP was at the tip of the sword assuring that the 287 (g) vital program that rids us of illegal alien criminals was continued by the sheriff.
It's that time again to show support for our commissioners who stand up to the illegal alien invasion designed to bring about the demise of our nation, one county at a time. This is right out of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals!
Please send an email of THANKS to Commissioner Grady Hawkins and Commissioner Rebecca McCall for supporting 287 (g) and the law abiding citizens of Henderson County.

Tension and disagreement surrounding remarks made in June about the 287(g) program were the focus of the public comments portion of the Henderson County Board of Commissioners meeting Wednesday.
Attorney George Pappas claimed Chairman Grady Hawkins and Commissioner Rebecca McCall have failed to uphold their oath of office, referring to a comment Hawkins made at the commissioners’ June 3 meeting, and a statement attributed to McCall about Hawkins’ comments published by Blue Ridge Public Radio this week.
Hawkins said he’s standing by what he said, and McCall says her comments were misinterpreted.
The main comment in question came from the June 3 meeting following public comments about the county’s involvement in the 287(g) program.
“I’m not sure if you’re here illegally why you’re privy to the constitution that the rest of the American people are, but that is a question for the courts to deal with,” Hawkins said.
Pappas, along with other immigration advocates, signed and submitted a letter to the Asheville Citizen-Times calling for Hawkins’ resignation after the comment. Pappas is now calling for McCall’s resignation as well.
“Board member Grady Hawkins has stated that so-called illegals are not privy to the U.S. Constitution like Americans are. Wrong,” Pappas said.
“Board member Rebecca McCall has stated, ‘Why should we ignore our own law for immigrants? That’s what they’re asking us to do, they’re asking us to go above the constitution and ignore our law for immigrants.’ Wrong,” Pappas continued, reading what was attributed to McCall by BPR.
“Commissioner McCall, you are being asked to protect noncitizens and citizens equally under the U.S. Constitution — not beyond it, not over it, but within the legal bounds of the U.S. Constitution – you took an oath to do just that.”
Pappas began citing Supreme Court cases and constitutional amendments surrounding protections.
McCall said after Wednesday’s meeting that she was referring to those arrested through the 287(g) program, not the immigration community as a whole. She said she was asking why suspected or convicted criminals deserve different rights. She claims her previous comments were taken out of context.
“I have very high regards for the immigrants that live in our area,” McCall said.
She cited her and the rest of the commissioners’ support for the recently hired liaison outreach coordinator for the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office for underserved Hispanic communities.
“The commissioners approved that position and provided the salary because we want to see that relationship heal and grow,” McCall said.
McCall said Hawkins had asked a question and did not make a statement about what was constitutional.
Hawkins had a brief and heated exchange with Pappas Wednesday. During public comments, as Pappas exceeded the three-minute speaking limit, Hawkins stopped him and asked him to return to his seat.
Pappas again stated Hawkins was going against his oath of office based on his comment June 3.
“Don’t talk to me about an oath of office. I swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, of which you probably want the domestic enemies, so have your seat back there,” Hawkins said.
Pappas spoke over Hawkins and told him he was ignorant to the law.
“If you continue to disturb the meeting, I will have you removed,” Hawkins warned.
“It is called free speech,” Pappas replied, and walked away from the podium.
After Wednesday’s meeting, Hawkins said he and Pappas will have to “agree to disagree.”
“We could sit and talk jack forever. I don’t agree with what he is saying and his philosophy, and that’s fine; I respect his opinion. He needs to respect mine. We will agree to disagree,” Hawkins said.
On whether or not he plans to resign, Hawkins said, “don’t expect it.”
