The HRC Predictably Serves Up A Whopper

By Greg L | 28 September 2007 | Prince William County | 17 Comments

The Prince William County Human Rights Commission has released it’s “report” on the Reaffirmation of Law Resolution passed unanimously by the Board of County Supervisors on July 10th, and it’s everything I expected it to be and more. There are few documents produced at taxpayer expense that are as biased in their statements, so littered with outright lies and deliberate fabrications, and so woefully useless to the legislative process as this ridiculous “report”. It is instructive as to the mindset of the illegal alien apologist, but insofar as it was supposed to help assist county government in implementing this resolution — the ultimate purpose of this exercise, after several contradictory stabs at justifying this enterprise — it is completely and utterly useless.

With this “report”, the Human Rights Commission has sacrificed the entirety of it’s credibility upon the altar of radical political agendas. It is exactly as I had foreseen.

The discussion here starts out on a bad note:

Over the past three months, Prince William County has been fractured in ways not seen since the 1950s. Massive protest marches, attempted fire bombings, the Klan resurgent, attacks on free speech, and a minority group living in fear, make it seem more like 1957 than 2007.

“Massive protest marches?” Hardly. “Fire bombings?” That must mean the one knucklehead who tried to burn that ugly sign about this that had been erected in another jurisdiction, and failed, damaging nothing. “The Klan resurgent?” Are these folks nuts? Who in the heck is joining the klan around here? It was a literature drop on one street, again, in another jurisdiction. The last time this happened after May Day rallies by illegal aliens in Washington, the HRC never concluded that the klan was somehow “resurgent.” And just who is supposedly attacking free speech? The report doesn’t say. This is utterly ridiculous.

Then, the “report” somehow says that this debate is harming the housing market. Their evidence to support this is a Washington Times article which doesn’t make this conclusion, and a random reader comment on the WTOP website. The report bemoans that our “reputation has been sullied”, citing again a random reader comment on the WTOP website and a comment posted by another random person on this blog, which they inaccurately cite as the “Help Save Manassas Blog: Black Velvet Bruce Lee.” Excuse me?

I’m sure glad they worked so hard to solicit useful testimony about the nature of the problem, otherwise they might not have been able to explain what the supposed problem is here.

Based on this “thorough” analysis, the report starts giving it’s conclusions:

Based on our unique experience with human and civil rights legislation and its enforcement, the Human Rights Commission has concluded that it will be virtually impossible to implement this legislation in a non-discriminatory manner unless every resident of Prince William County is required to prove his or her legal residency at all county service points—including the library, zoning enforcement, and animal control, to name just a few. (emphasis in original)

So based on no investigation whatsoever, but using the evident political biases that members of this commission have displayed from the very beginning, the commissioners are certain that unlawful discrimination will inevitably result in the implementation of a resolution. Funny thing though, the same day that this report is released, the county released the social services part of the implementation plan and nothing in that plan relates in any way to the bizarre scenarios the Human Rights Commission is claiming to be unavoidable. The basis for this conclusion not only isn’t provided in the “report”, but on the same day it’s released other county documents disprove the conclusion.

The “report” claims that the resolution will impose “unknown costs” due to the implementation being legally challenged “without a doubt”:

Based on the reports of numerous groups who have come before the Human Rights Commission Subcommittee on Immigration, we can report that—without doubt—this legislation will be challenged legally, opening the county to protracted court battles and mounting costs, all at taxpayer expense.

Yes, the many of the groups that the commission selectively invited (Help Save Manassas and the Immigration Reform Law Institute had to ask to be included) in many cases threatened legal action. They started saying they would imminently file lawsuits the day this resolution passed, and so far, not one has been. They’ve been blowing this smoke from day one, and now three months later, there still aren’t any lawsuits. If the HRC is going to take this drivel at face value while the facts are absolutely opposite, it confirms that these conclusions aren’t based on facts or analysis but the product of a pre-ordained process designed to confirm their existing political biases.

The final conclusions, given the weaknesses of this “report” so far, are predictable, especially given the liberal use of the inaccurate term “undocumented immigrant” that infests this document:

This ordinance has far-reaching implications for the future of Prince William County and the kind of community we will become. The greatest impact of this legislation will not be on the hundreds of undocumented workers who are imprisoned and deported, but on the hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants and native-born Americans who remain. However well-intentioned:

  • Implementation of this ordinance will be burdensome to legal residents required to prove their legitimacy;
  • Implementation of this ordinance will be expensive for legal residents; and
  • Implementation of this ordinance will do little or nothing to relieve the longer term, underlying problems of assimilation.

The resolution clearly is related to illegal aliens, and all of the implementation details thus far are narrowly and carefully crafted to ensure that only illegal aliens are subject to this initiative.  There is no burdensome requirement established anywhere for legal residents to prove their legal status, there is no basis to claim that this resolution will negatively impact tax rates (evidence actually suggests the opposite)  The intent of this resolution was to deal with unlawful activity, not to promote assimilation of immigrants.  This last one is a tactic called a “straw man”, where you invent a reason to oppose something, and this is a pretty transparent one at that.

County taxpayers spent a fair amount of money paying for this “report” to be prepared.  For that investment, we’ve gotten nothing of value.  It’s time to reform the Human Rights Commission, because right now no one can take anything it says seriously.  It’s true purpose, to prevent unlawful discrimination and to help resolve cases where unlawful discrimination has occurred is vitally important.  A “report” like this damages the ability of the commission to accomplish that goal, and instead of promoting human rights in Prince William County, strongly risks that they could be degraded in the future.  Nice job of keeping your eye on the ball Carlos Labioso.  You must have spent too much time with Mexicans Without Borders at their protest last month.

Carlos Labioso (at left) assisting Ricardo Juarez of Mexicans Without Borders (partially obscured) and an unknown individual at the Mexicans Without Borders protest on September 2nd.  Carlos Labioso is the head of the Immigration Committee of the Prince William County Human Rights Commission.

So much for this unlawful effort by the Human Rights Commission to try to usurp the authority of the Board of Supervisors.

    How did Carlos Labioso get on the Human Rights Commission? Sounds like another Omeish to me. I think someone needs to review his credentials. How can anyone associated with Mexicans Without Borders be fair and impartial. Maybe all of the members of HRC should be reviewed.

    with the question you asked above and NOT to get off track, just have to ask:
    “How can anyone associated with Mexicans Without Borders be fair and impartial”

    How is it that John Steinbach ( and Nancy at one time) be in our schools? Perhaps, the same reason, in QUESTION?

    What planet, or should I say state, were these people living on in 1957? I was living in Virginia and NEVER heard of any such thing in Prince William County! We moved here in about 1961 and NEVER witnessed or heard about any such goings-on here in PWC! These people are not only ill-informed, they are out and out liars if they claim any veracity or research in that report at all. It’s time for the so-called Human Rights Commission to be disbanded before they CREATE civil unrest!

    What planet have they been living on the past three months (never mind 50 years ago?) It sounds like they have been smoking the loco weed. I hope the BOCS investigates the results of this report on how they (HRC) came to their conclusions and takes appropriate action and hold the people on the commission accountable for their waste of taxpayer money.

    Every resident SHOULD be required to prove their citizenship or right to be in the country legally before services are given as well as their proof of entitlement of such services. I’m all for the equivalent of a Citizenship card, as part of the Social Security Card registration process. Just make it 3rd party securable, with a security key, so it can’t be copied or used without a PIN number, and no name and address on it, just a secure code that is verified by account check with the SSA.

    The qualification to serve on the HRC are obviously not based on intellect, but social worker ability to distort the truth and be self-delusional about facts. My ex-wife used to do this, she pretended what she thought was true, even though proven false, just because she didn’t want to be caught lying. SHE was a social worker with a social services degree too. Hmm, college IQ scores would show people with these degrees and who join these committees are generally not on the top end of academic talent, rather on the low end as far as the average student goes.

    I’ve never heard of such a thing either. I lived here my whole, this is a first. I was at most of these meetings, and it was hard to stomach. Most members showed up late or didn’t bother to show up at all. Disband they MUST!! I can’t wait to see what the PWCBOS has to say about this. I can’t make it this week Jury Duty in Alexandria, Tuesday. I hope citizen’s show up to let their feelings been know about the HRC-Immigration

    Why does the County even need this liberal group? Maybe someone can correct me, but given this commision was started by the BOS, can a simple vote by the BOS eliminate the hrc?

    This is the problem with any and all commission’s like the hrc, they are made up of liberals who live in their liberal worlds, who only have contact with liberals, and when they are talking with their fellow liberals at the wine and chees parties, they all feel their opinions must be right, since everyone at the wine and cheese parties agree with them.

    I feel the members of the hrc need to get a taste of diversity so that they are exposed to more then one train of thought.

    The HRC did absolutely nothing that the BOCS directed it to do. It has its own agenda, obviously. It is one of many commissions and boards that we the citizens need to re-evaluate and dismantle. The money we save can better be spent elsewhere and on essential services: 287g, police, fire, medical. Look at the amount of money is paid to people in charge of these non-essential groups. For doing nothing more than “busy work” to justify their existence.

    I don’t mind proving my citizenship. If that is what it takes, so be it. There is no excuse for our government not enforcing its own laws!

    Speaking of a whopper!
    “Hispanic leaders to sue over Oklahoma illegal-immigrant law”

    The basic tenet of the law is (which is ALL reasonable): “Considered one of the toughest in the nation, the Oklahoma law creates barriers for illegal immigrants to receive public benefits and jobs. It also makes it illegal to transport or harbor illegal immigrants, making violations a felony punishable by a minimum of one year in prison or a $1,000 fine.”

    Carlos was appointed by Jenkins years ago. He is the laughing stock of a human being. He is like another of our friends ( Jimmy) he thinks he’s the greatest and no one puts him down or in his place.
    He also puts on that McGruff costume and again thinks he is great.

    There has to be a good effort made to undo this Commission or at least appoint all new people that are not related or involved with organizations that are against our Laws and Country.

    Need to get several Supervisors to start the ball rolling.
    Connaughton started with the Women’s Commission as it was a waste. Times have change and we need to revamp and change these committees.
    These groups may not get paid money but they get alot of free meals at their get togethers,and that is tax payer money.

    Carols is employed by the county This maybe a conflict of interest. He was also appointed to the task force by Hilda, As for Chairman Porter ,Cannaughton tried to remove him, and it was a big todo. The Supervisers need to look at their appointments,after this election.
