Section 287(g) Program Discussion in Manassas Tonight

By Greg L | 30 October 2006 | Manassas City | 9 Comments

Tonight the Manassas City Council will discuss proposals to participate in the Section 287(g) program at a work session prior to tonight’s town hall meeting. If you’re concerned about whether the city will make a strong effort to control illegal immigration, or do the bare minimum required in order to calm city residents, this will be an important meeting to attend. The agenda can be found here.

Tonight’s meeting will be at Haydon Elementary School. The work session begins at 6:30, and the town hall meeting will start at 7PM. After several agenda items there will be an opportunity for citizens to speak, and I expect that there will be a number of citizens who will want to give their views on the 287(g) Program.

You may want to be one of thise citizens.

    As usual the majority of folks are for the program. All of the people who spoke in favor of the program made very good points. Quality of life is down, certain crime is up, taxes are up, and our school system is on the verge of disaster. But, it seems outside of Councilman Smith, the rest of the council has felt the outrage of the Citizens, and passed a resolution in favor of the program.

    All of the people(3 by my count when I was there) it seemed that spoke in favor of illegal immigration seemed to just completely gloss over the fact the illegals have broken the law, and continue to do so. Yet, we are just supposed to open our arms wide open and accept them and act as if the illegals are doing us a favor.

    One of the guys who spoke up against the 287(g) program and was, by my count, the first to use the “R” word left halfway through the program. This was after he loudly “booed” the guy who spoke for 287(g) that had most everyone clapping.

    His domestic partner, or whatever she/he/it was, spoke against 287(g) and also complained about how Manassas has the worst infrastructure for bicycles, compared to everywhere else she lived including Falls Church and Alexandria. I would suggest that she move back–her brand of politics tends to be much more accepted in those places (but, ironically, maybe that’s why she moved..”locust liberals”, you know).

    And by my count two of the three who spoke in favor did not reside in the city, though they did “represent people who did reside in the city.” I guess those ‘people’ were too busy attending city council meetings elsewhere in Northern Virginia.

    Ya, I heard the guy speak too. The supporters of illegal immigration have to resort to name calling like that, because they do not have a defense for illegal immigration, so they attempt to put us on the defensive. Well, once again they failed.

    Also, the older lady who spoke and suggested a summit with EVERYONE involved. She complained about the unintended results of the program, such as illegal kids leaving school(that is exactly what needs to happen), and how these people will become an underclass, well, how is that different from now? She was full of hot air, and really did not offer one suggestion as to what to do with the illegals.

    As to the lady talking about bike riding, I wonder if she has ever driven along Wellington Road, and in Old town? There is plenty of places to ride a bike to get from here to there.

    But, you are right, she should move back.

    This was Ed Johnson, who I believe is Chairman of the Manassas Democratic Committee.

    “His domestic partner, or whatever she/he/it was, spoke against 287(g) and also complained about how Manassas has the worst infrastructure for bicycles, compared to everywhere else she lived including Falls Church and Alexandria.”

    This was Gae Johnson, Ed Johnson’s wife, and secretary of the Manassas Dems.

    By my count, Johnson & Johnson were the only actual city residents to speak against the resolution. I also noticed an exchange between the Acting Chairman of the Manassas GOP, Steve Thomas, and Ed Johnson, after Johnson loudly booed a citizen speaking in support of council’s actions. Johnson continued to mumble things as supporters of the council spoke. Thomas leaned over and said something to Johnson. Johnson called Thomas an “A**hole” and stormed out of the meeting, returned briefly to give his wife something, and left. Might have been keys, as Mrs. Johnson can’t ride her bike in the city.

    Oh, those dems…always so “tolerant”..of anything they don’t disagree with.

    Yes, Ed Johnson is indeed the Chairman of the Manassas Democratic Committee, based on a Google search I just did.

    Ed Johnson’s behavior is not becoming of anyone who is in that sort of position.

    Somehow I don’t expect that this will get the same coverage as was given to the PWCRC chairman. It’s OK for Democrats to act like boors, but Republicans will always get called on it.

    Maybe that’s better, as we actually police our own and do something when a Republican does something wrong.

    City Council has given it a start. Will we follow through with holding businesses responsible for hiring illegal immigrants. Just like crack downs on prostitution, throwing the whores in jail doesn’t stop it, you have to take away the assets of the John. So, let’s take all assets of anyone hiring illegals away. It’s a lot cheaper than a fence. If there’s no jobs they have no reason to be here illegally (other than to steal free healthcare, be on welfare and be a general drain to society)
