ILLEGALS TARGET MANASSAS

By Greg L | 23 June 2006 | Manassas City, Prince William County | 7 Comments

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.

    But what can we do? What can Jackson Miller do? The city of Manassas got essentially shut down by the ACLU. The surrounding jurisdictions are doing nothing. What can be done to effect change?

    The ACLU can be annoying, but they do not make nor enforce the law.

    Jackson has proposed ICE training for Manassas police officers. This should be done at the county level as well. Prince William County should establish a zoning ordinance to prevent overcrowding and enforce that ordinance. Loitering day laborers should be cited for loitering and questioned, their immigration status determined, and violators should be detained.

    And if ICE will not accept the detainees, these folks should be transported to Capitol Hill and released on the steps of Congress amidst as much fanfare as possible. We could even provide these folks with a tour of the Capitol.

    Don’t fall into the moonbat trap that there’s nothing that can be done. All it takes is resolve.

    It is the number one issue. People need to contact their congressmen and make their feelings known!!!!

    Many (not aiming this at you BVBL) like to talk about the how the ACLU shut down Manassas but their influence is piddling when compared to the pressure that HUD is now placing on the City. HUD has, for all practical purposes, an unlimited treasury with which to torture the city for as long as they please.

    Our own government is doing this to us!!

    HUD is focusing narrowly on the question of whether the law is being enforced fairly and equitably. That’s something we all want, and it shouldn’t impede in any way our efforts to enact ordinances at the county level, train police officers, or continue to enforce the law in a fair and equitable manner.

    It shouldn’t in any way affect our efforts to control this lawlessness.

    Here is my thing… there are three jurisdictions in the 50th district - part of Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park. I don’t know much about PWC, but Manassas Park hasn’t made this much of an issue. I literally have it in my mind that if Manassas is successful with the zoning efforts, the surrounding jurisdictions will face an influx of Manassas refugees. Moreover, the problem won’t necessarily be solved because they will still be living in neighboring jurisdictions - day laborers might from PWC might look for work in Manassas. Without partnership in these three jurisdictions, change will be nearly impossible. How do you build those partnerships with neighboring communities? It’s an important question, no?

    Illegal Immigrants Free To Go
    Local police said they intercepted 20 illegal Mexican immigrants, but were ordered by immigration officials to let them go free.

    Belmont County Sheriff Fred Thompson said his officers were instructed by federal immigration services to let all 20 illegal immigrants go free, and said his department has no choice but to follow the orders from immigration officials.

    Thompson said officers stopped a van at 3 a.m. Tuesday which was traveling the wrong direction on Interstate 470 in St. Clairsville.

    The officer discovered 20 illegal Mexican immigrants inside the van, including three who were previously deported. The officer immediately contacted immigration officials, who told him to let all 20 immigrants go.

    “Once we find out they are illegals, it’s like pat them on the back of the head and tell them, ‘Go on down the road; you’ll probably get stopped again,’” Thompson said.

    The immigrants told the officer they were traveling through Ohio to obtain work in Manassas, Va.

    Calls to Citizenship and Immigration Services as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement have not been returned.

    Someone needs to find out what in Manasasas is the “attractive nuisance” that is causing these illegal aliens to want to come here and remove it.

    I suspect that there is a large employer of illegal aliens operating in the Manassas area that is putting out these advertisements. Unfortunately, nobody thought to ask the illegal aliens in Ohio who they were planning to work for in Manassas when they got here.
