The Georgia Department of Driver Services confirmed Wednesday that it had ordered the removal of a bright yellow “Illegal Alien Hunting Permit” sticker from the cubicle of one of its investigators.
The agency — which has 713 employees — confirmed the cubicle in Conyers belongs to Greg Dial, who investigates driver’s license fraud. Dial did not respond to requests for comment.
“DDS management was unaware of the sticker posted in Investigator Dial’s personal workspace,” Susan Sports, a spokeswoman for the agency, said in an email. “It is not an appropriate message and the sticker was immediately removed. DDS will address this matter as we would any allegation of employee misconduct and handle appropriately.”
The sticker also declares that, as a “Hunting Permit,” it may be used “under the influence of alcohol.”
“May hunt day or night with or without dogs around borders, poultry, plants, onion fields, farms, citrus groves, construction sites, goats, low riders, tunnels and packing plants,” the sticker continues. “May use Coronas, Jose Cuervo and burritos as bait. No bag limit — Tagging not required.”
