Billy Inman, a 55-year-old Woodstock man who was a voice of conscience after his son was killed by an illegal alien in a 2000 car crash, died two years ago of a heart attack. It was on June 16, 2000 when Gonzalo Harrell-Gonzalez slammed into the stopped vehicle of Billy and Kathy Inman and their 16-year-old son Dustin at a traffic light in Ellijay. After being treated for his injuries at a hospital, the illegal Mexican immigrant fled to his home country. Dustin died.
And the family nightmare continues. Now wheelchair-bound Kathy Inman could lose her home.
Following the crash The Cherokee News-Tribune reported that Billy Inman became the primary caregiver to Kathy, who suffered a brain injury and other permanent effects from the crash. He also became an outspoken advocate for the enforcement of immigration laws and an opponent of open borders. When the White House established its Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office in April 2018, the Inmans were among the special guests.
But that was then, and this is now. InsiderAdvantage learned this week that Kathy is having a tough time and needs help. She needs to pay for round-the-clock care but is running out of money. Kathy’s sister Leigh Kelly fears that the Inman home could be lost if help doesn’t arrive soon. And that led Kelly to set up a GoFundMe account in hopes that charitable Georgians can help— either with a donation or passing on information to someone who can help. The Go Fund Me account is HERE
The Georgia-based Dustin Inman Society, established to advocate for enforcement of state and federal immigration control laws, has been a tireless friend to the Inmans since Dustin’s death. On its website, it points to many news stories about the plight of illegal aliens who sneak into the country yet are a “protected class.” It notes there are corporate-funded, anti-enforcement ad campaigns telling the public “Families Belong Together.” And there are a large number of Google accounts established to help illegal aliens separated from their families because of immigration law enforcement.
Yet the Society hopes Georgians focus on an under-reported dark side of open borders and illegal immigration: In the tragic case of Kathy Inman, her family will never be together again.
