Nohe Goes To Bat For Illegal Alien Business Licenses

24 January 2008 | Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 143 Comments

There seems to be a big policy battle brewing at the Prince William Board of County Supervisors regarding whether the county should screen those who apply for businesses licenses to see if the applicants are legally present in the United States.  The general notion here is that if someone cannot be legally hired, they shouldn’t […]

Ricardo Juarez Admits Defeat

22 January 2008 | Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 48 Comments

According to the Washington Post, Ricardo Juarez is suddenly dropping his ridiculous assertion that the Rule of Law resolution passed by the Prince William Board of County Supervisors is a racist measure that targets all immigrants, rather than illegal aliens. I’d gather that Mexicans Without Borders is so concerned about the BOCS providing funding […]

Shopping Cart Graveyards

22 January 2008 | Crime, Prince William County | 157 Comments

Ever wonder what happens to those shopping carts you occasionally see being pushed along the sidewalks from folks walking home from the grocery store?  You’d expect someone who is investing their future in America, rather than trying to temporarily “rent” the American Dream, would bring these back where they found them if it would have […]

Another couple of horse races are decided, and still we’re no closer to seeing a clear Republican nominee emerge from the pack, although a few clearly have faded into obscurity and will soon end their races.

There are a lot of immigration-related bills moving through the General Assembly right now, and I am hearing that the business lobbyists are reportedly working REALLY hard to get each and every one of them killed.  Apparently, Virginia employers are very concerned that their ability to unlawfully employ illegal aliens is at risk.

Jackson, I Told You So

14 January 2008 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 93 Comments

I’ve been having a long-going debate with my friend Delegate Jackson Miller about the business community and the illegal alien problem.  His contention is that with so many small businesses suffering terribly because they’re competing with those who unlawfully hire illegal aliens, that community would certainly be supportive of legislative efforts the reduce the number […]

Replacement Open Thread

The existing weekly open thread got three hundred comments, which seems to be the magic number for this version of Wordpress to fall over and stop rendering a page.  I’ve turned off comments on that thread and it’ll now display properly, but you’ll need somewhere else for that free-wheeling discussion.  This is it.
