Kaine Says No To Safety For Virginia Families

By Greg L | 28 August 2007 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 18 Comments

The petition asking Governor Kaine does seem to be getting the attention of state-level officials, although Kaine’s response so far is that he will refuse to enroll the Commonwealth in the Section 287(g) Program. Meanwhile, Missouri just announced that it will enter into the program:

“We cannot be complacent about illegal immigration, and we cannot wait for Washington to stop unlawful immigration,” Blunt said. “We must be proactive to protect Missourians from harm and help prevent what happened in New Jersey from happening in Missouri. We will make every effort, implement every tool, and take every step to ensure the laws against illegal immigration are enforced.”

In contrast, Governor Kaine is telling the Washington Times that no way, Virginia is not going to ensure that every means possible to remove criminal illegal aliens will be employed:

Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine does not want to create a statewide partnership with federal immigration officials that would allow state agencies to identify illegal aliens and begin deportation procedures, despite calls from the state’s attorney general and anti-illegal-immigration groups.

“The governor does not object to localities choosing to enter into localized agreements with [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement],” said Kevin Hall, Mr. Kaine’s spokesman. “He has concerns, however, about asking state troopers to assume primary enforcement of federal immigration responsibilities.”

OK, Governor, how about you explain to your constituents why it’s preferable to continue to add illegal aliens to the Virginia Sex Offender Registry rather than deport these persons who pose such demonstrable risks to our families that they are required to tell the State Police where they are at all times?  If they’re that dangerous, why are they being allowed to remain in Virginia when their presence in the United States is unlawful to begin with?

This stunning disregard for the safety of Virginia families is an outrage.

    Does anyone know how many signatures are now on the petition? How many does it take before they take notice that the legal residents are the ones that vote them into office.

    Hopefully the word spreads and we can get thousands or a hundred thousand signatures on this petition.

    Governor Kaine must be sleeing with the mayor of M.P.

    Unless I am not right, it seems Kaine wants to force this issue on local school systems, yet does not want to have a State wide 287g program. I guess Timmy seems to think the State should tell the local Governments what to do when it suits him, but not when it does not suit him.

    “I meant sleeping.” Sleezing would have been my guess :) Thanks for the correction.

    Dolph,

    Did you read my post, I assume you did since you are asking me a question regarding my post. I said “Unless I am not right”…… That means I am not sure if his pre-K program would, if passed, be mandatory for every local school district to have. I would not have added the caveat if I was sure that was the case.

    COM,

    I wasn’t sure what IT was that was being forced. Yes I read the post. Thank you for clarifying.

    Please contact Gov Kaine at this address and tell him to commit VA State Police to the 287 g program now

    Dolph,

    OK, now that you realize what I was asking, do you know if his pre-K plan is manditory or not for local all local school districts?

    I just checked the petition to Gov. Kaine. There are 849 signatures. HSM has 1573 members. That means the number of signers could double just by getting all HSM members to sign.

    ICE officials testified at the Crime Commission Task Force this week that they have a strong working relationship with Department of Corrections officials and that they have in process paperwork that will assure removal of any criminal illegal alien released from state prisons between now and February 2008 and that hope to have the paperwork done on all illegal aliens in state prison soon.

    They said that they are at the Powhatan processing facility through which all new inmates go when they are committed to state prison almost daily.

    Huh? Could it be that the Governor doesn’t see the need to spend time negotiating an agreement when the current relationship which is entirely federally funded and staffed is accomplishing the objective at the Dept of Corrections?

    But, of course, acknowledging that this isn’t really an issue at all — that the state already has in place a cooperative relationship with ICE that is accomplishing the objective of removing criminal aliens once they served their state prison sentences wouldn’t support your agenda would it, Greg?

    Get informed and give your readers the truth. The fact is that criminal illegal aliens are being removed from Virginia by federal authorities when they finish their state prison sentences without the need for an agreement that does nothing more than transfer the costs to the state.

    At Prince William’s Adult Detention Center, where the 287(g) Program has been adopted, deportations of illegal aliens has risen from a handful to 56 last month. The superintendent of the jail says that he’s processing 240 illegal aliens a month, and if we expand the 287(g) MOU, we could be deporting at least half of those.

    When we first started talking about 287(g) around here, we heard the same story about a strong relationship with ICE that was allowing criminal illegal aliens to be deported, but when we adopted 287(g), deportations skyrocketed comparatively. In every instance that the 287(g) program has been adopted, deportation of criminal illegal aliens has significantly risen. In case you haven’t noticed, that’s a good thing.

    Now we hear that there’s a cooperative and informal agreement at the state level with ICE at the same time ICE is significantly reducing the personnel available to support that informal arrangement. And they’re saying this is fully sufficient. Methinks I’ve heard this one before.
