On Monday, County Chairman Corey Stewart and Senator Jay O’Brien blasted efforts by the Mexican government to interject themselves into local politics here in Prince William County. This weekend a visit by a delegation of the Mexican National Commission On Human Rights was postponed which intended to investigate the policies of the county in regards to the illegal alien problem that the Mexican Government, by official its official policy, as helped to create. Although this outrage against our national sovereignty has been called off, it seems clear that the Mexican Government is interested in getting involved in our local politics. Corey Stewart and Jay O’Brien aren’t going to stand for further foreign meddling in our local affairs.
Jay O’Brien remarked that “this has got to be nuts. How dare [the Mexican Government] try to intimidate us.” While the United States accepts more than two million legal immigrants a year, which is more than all other industrial nations combined, for the Mexican Government to try to subvert our attempts to enforce the rule of law and require legal presence among those in Prince William County smacks of hypocrisy given that Mexico treats their immigrants far less charitably than we do in the United States. This kind of intimidation is “unprecedented”, in O’Brien’s view.
O’Brien also took this opportunity to blast Congress for it’s failure to protect the rule of law. “Look at the mess you have created,” he said to our federal representatives, “by failing to enforce existing immigration laws you have really created a quagmire for state and local governments to try to figure out how to proceed in a moral lawful and constitutional manner.” Senator O’Brien challenged Congress to act to secure our borders and solve this problem, saying that Congress “does not have the will, or frankly the guts, to enforce existing immigration laws” and that needs to change. Wasteful ‘pork-barrel’ spending needs to be re-directed to improve the ability of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency to control unlawful immigration in the United States and restore order, which would be a welcome change.
Corey Stewart blasted the corruption and ineptitude of the Mexican Government for creating the conditions which cause millions of Mexican nationals to flee their country, and called their economic policies “a miserable failure”. Mexico’s elected officials are promoting the entry of illegal aliens into our country which he described as “highly reprehensible” and an attempt to deflect attention from the corruption and ineptitude of the Mexican Government. They are complicit in this problem, and are doing nothing to address it.
This action is an attempt to interfere with the workings of local government, and Corey Stewart intends to make inquiries with the Department of State to determine whether these potential actions are consistent with international law and United States law.
Stewart characterized Mexicans Without Borders, which is reported to have requested this foreign intervention, as “complicit and supportive of illegal immigration” and the deliberate violation of United States laws.
This was another bone-headed move my Mexicans Without Borders, and it definitely seems as if this attempt to fight against out local policies that seek to reduce the number of illegal aliens in our community has backfired. If they thought that having a foreign government come in and lecture to us that we’re not sufficiently accommodating towards the illegal aliens that they have encouraged to unlawfully reside here is a good idea, they’ve gotten a real lesson in how local politics actually work. Corey Stewart and Jay O’Brien have earned some major kudos for slapping this outrage down, and they both need to be re-elected so they can continue to defend the interests of the citizens of Prince William County as they have been.
Meanwhile, Sharon Pandak and George Barker, their opponents, have been utterly silent on this. That should speak volumes about their dedication to protecting the interests of Prince William County residents.
