From On High has a frightening report that came from the Washington Times about how illegal immigrants are specifically targeting Manassas. This isn’t the forst time I’ve heard of this — a neighbor of mine who is not very active politically, has apparently seen reports that there are actually advertisements in Mexico telling those who would cross illegally that Manassas is the place to be.
A couple of weeks ago I spoke to two Virginia State Troopers at a 7-11 on Liberia Avenue about whether they could do anything to determine the immigration status of the day laborers loitering outside. They expressed resignation that they couldn’t do much, and that ICE was unwilling to do anything unless the group of illegals exceeded 10. And presumably then, it would be another pointless catch-and-release exercize anyways.
This has got to stop. And anyone who claims that immigration will not be the number one issue of concern to Manassas voters this November has got their head buried in the sand.
