DPVA Goes For Illegals, Citizens Can Go To Hell

By Greg L | 4 February 2008 | DPVA, Illegal Aliens | 52 Comments

Virginia, you need to pay attention to this:

Democratic leaders have said they will block that bill and what they consider to be other harsh bills aimed at illegal immigrants. Already, the Democrat-controlled Senate has killed a number of bills that would allow employers to fire workers if they speak a language other than English at work and that would limit illegal immigrants’ access to public colleges.

The only immigration-related bills advanced by a Senate committee “don’t do anything, which is why they got out,” said Senate Majority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax).

This quote from today’s Washington Post declares that the leaders of the Democratic Party of Virginia have come to the conclusion that instead of listening to the 80% of Virginians who want the Commonwealth to reform it’s current policies that encourage the unlawful presence of illegal aliens, the DPVA is going to support the interests of illegal aliens and those who profit from unlawfully employing them. When you vote for a Democrat in Virginia, you are voting to ensure the continuation of the following practices:

This is what the DPVA’s leadership actually wants for Virginia, because Saslaw and Moran are telling us that the only bills they will allow out of the General Assembly are those that do nothing whatsoever to address these and other problems associated with the unlawful presence of illegal aliens in the Commonwealth, if they can get their way. Illegals can get your tax dollars, your jobs, run into your parked car, steal your identity, and break all sorts of laws, and the DPVA is fine with all that. Of course if you break any of these same laws, you are going to be held strictly accountable because it’s easier to get you to pay a fine, or find you and put you in jail than it would be to get an illegal alien to pay up or report to prison.
I call on Democratic members of the House and Senate who think it is a horrible idea to put the interests of illegal aliens ahead of those of Virginia’s citizens and legal immigrants to leave the Democratic Party. The DPVA leadership can tell your constituents to go to hell, but you don’t need to join them in doing so.

Delegate Paul Nichols should be the first to do so.

UPDATE: The House of Delegates just passed a bill that would implement the federal Section 287(g) Program state-wide on a bi-partisan 88-11 vote.  Saslaw and the DPVA leadership want to kill it.  The DPVA leadership is so incredibly out-of-touch with the Virginia electorate it makes one’s head spin.

    Obviously, this man has low moral principles. He would fail a test on right and wrong. I’m trying to remember what the Bible says about those who pervert justice. This man has sold himself to do evil.

    Mr. Saslaw

    You were elected to represent the citizens of your district. As Senate Majority Leader you also represent the interests of the entire Commonwealth of Virginia. It is very hard to believe you understand that concept.

    Your inaction on SR90 which was introduced by a member of your own party supports illegal hiring by employers. Your belief that illegal aliens who have no right to work in the United States somehow have an inherited right to work in Virginia is not a position I can support. It seems that allowing employers to break the law is acceptable in this state. The whole area of contractors is not covered by Federal Immigration law. Illegal aliens are allowed to get contractors licensees and operate freely in the State.

    When many parents cannot get their children into collage, we allow preferential treatment of illegal aliens who cannot be legally employed after they graduate.

    How many more citizens will be killed by illegal aliens with long rap sheets in driving accidents. Without enforcement, anarchy rules.

    Illegal aliens are devastating communities with overcrowded housing and gang violence. I won’t even discuss the effect that Day Laborers have on neighborhoods. Government has a responsibility to maintain safe communities for our families.

    Virginia is again facing massive budget deficits after passing the largest tax increase in its history. Social Services spending is out of control and yet we continue to support people who have no right to be in the United States to start with. Our taxes should not be spent on supporting illegal aliens. Is this how you represent your constituents?

    Do you really believe that releasing criminal aliens back into the community while awaiting trial is in the best interest of the people who you represent.

    As our representative you can no longer ignore the growing anarchy caused by not enforcing immigration law. I agree that the federal government has abrogated it’s responsibility to enforce its own laws. That does not mean that the Commonwealth of Virginia should do the same. You need to represent the citizens of this state and act before our communities deteriorate to the point that Los Angeles has.

    Patty, of course they are good friends.

    It’s amazing that people don’t want to see what it going on here. This is a big political game, and the democrats are running it. Making phone calls and sending emails is not going to help. We just had an election that would have allowed us put in people to make change. Instead, we empowered a party that, at least nationally, has made no bones about promoting amnesty and open borders.

    These folks aren’t going to do anything differently unless they feel their political lives are in peril. That’s the way politicians are. These guys are safe for a while, so they’ll do what they want. But they will pacify you when it gets closer to election time so that they keep their jobs.

    Time to load up the buses and go to Richmond to march in the streets. Maybe HSM or SOD can put something together.

    Mr. Saslaw is only one example of the unmitigated arrogance and hubris of thousands of elected and appointed officials in all levels of government in all municipalitites and states. The issue of illegal immigration is only one example of these officials’ complete and utter disregard for not only the will of the majority of the people, but their lack of deference to the Rule of Law and constitutional concepts. Another good example is Affirmative Action, a policy that was never voted on by Congress, and has always been opposed by the majority of the citizens, yet, by virtue of an executive order originally promulgated by Richard Nixon, is part and parcel of every government’s and virtually every buisness’ hiring policies. I could give other examples.

    We (taxpaying, working, middle class Americans) are being tyrannized. Colgan promises in the last week of his campaign to do the right thing. Consequently, he gets re-elected. He follows through on his promise with a half-hearted, limp-wristed introduction of a perfectly fine bill that could have been the Genesis of a bi-partisan era of cooperation in the Virginia General Assembly. It just happens to get squelched by a gang of three in an obscure subcommittee.

    I agree with Mr. Anon in the previous post with one exception. The word “political” should be eliminated in one line.

    I truly believe we’ve come to that point in time.

    “Time to load up the buses and go to Richmond to march in the streets. Maybe HSM or SOD can put something together.”

    Don’t count on it. I’ve been advocating here for organized protest for years now but everyone seems to think that the voting booth is where we will solve this problem…

    HSM leaders don’t want to be seen as a radical organization willing to protest over this issue due to the political correctness implications involved. The problem with that is that after a while the politicians will start to think that they are in the clear and that there aren’t any ramifications to their corrupt back alley deals with corporations to provide their slave labor force at the expense of the select communities where illegal aliens choose to hang their hats after they have cleaned their Fairfax County homes. There comes a time where an organization loses relevance if it is not willing to go to bat for what it represents.

    I’m still not 100% sure that it’s not WE that are in the minority with this issue because I find it hard to believe that people would vote for the likes of these politicians if illegal immigration was truly their concern. If McCain wins the Virginia primary next week then I will be positive that illegal immigration is not a concern of the majority of voters in this state and that we truly ARE the minority when it comes to this issue.

    Also, don’t think that Colgan didn’t know how this was going to play out. You can be 110% sure that he and Saslaw had this whole plan worked out from the get-go. I told you guys not to trust that old geezer on this issue.

    Between allowing illegals to attend Virginia colleges (which is taking a space from a legal resident) he also supports Kaine’s pre pre-school (social babysitting) for four year-olds. RECALL!!!!!!!!!!!

    We are planning on going down next week. We need a presence down there each and every week.

    The mainstream media continues to manipulate both the political process and the english langauge. The party debates televised were a joke, when only the soft sell drivel of the favored candidates was allowed while others were all but ignored. Every time I hear it mentioned on television or radio, the word “Illegal” has been omited, and it comes out as ” imigration issue”, not
    ” illegal imigration issue” as it should be stated. They pretend not to hear in hopes the preocupied masses miss the message. So far its seems to be working. What ever it takes, we need to crank it up a couple notches.

    Don’t bet. McCain has been running all over the country talking tough on the issue of illegal aliens. He says that he’s seen the light - that people want the border sealed etc. and now he’s for that. The problem is that if he got elected, he’d be back in amnesty mode in a heart-beat. People noting that they take a hard-line position on illegal aliens are saying in polls that McCain will be the toughest candidate on that issue. The problem is that most people don’t follow this issue as closely as we do, not that they agree with the amnesty brigade. They know what he’s saying now, not what he’s done for years.

    Those of you who are down on McCain over amnesty should read this about your boy Romney in a Meet the Press appearance last December:

    On immigration, Romney was utterly Clintonian. He said that when in November 2005 he described the Bush/McCain approach to immigration as “reasonable” and “quite different” from amnesty, he wasn’t endorsing the proposal, but just describing it. He hadn’t formulated his own position on immigration at the time. That’s right up there with Hillary Clinton saying in the debate that she didn’t say she supported driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants, but she just said that a proposal to do so “makes sense.” Even if we were to get into the Christmas spirit and be extraordinarily generous by granting Romney that an elected official saying pending legislation is “reasonable” doesn’t constitute support for the legislation, it still doesn’t get him off the hook. His description of the proposal was that it was “quite different” from amnesty, and yet during this year he has ceaselessly leveled attacks on McCain by accusing him of supporting “amnesty.” So even being generous to Romney, this constitutes a major change in position, not just from some long ago Senate race in 1994, but from late 2005.


    Assuming Romney wins the nomination and then the Presidency, you’re still likely to be disappointed.

    I am a modertate independent - both the democrates and republicans have their share of stars and droops.

    But, where were the republicans in 2007 while they had the majority - what did they send up to the Gov’ner that he rejected (Illigal Immigrant wise)?

    What did the Republican PWC BOCS do in 2005, 2006, 2007 (Yes, in 2007, they passed an unfunded resolution)?

    So, do not knock the Dem’s for standing up and saying how they stand, as opposed to the Replublicans who are using the Illegal immigrant as a tool to try and get elected - Do not forget that the Replublcians did NOTHING about the illegal immigrant while they were in the Majority.

    Now, how do WE fix the problem - we do not need laws, we do not need money - WE Need to Stop Using the Companies that Employ Illegal Immigrants - it is really simple to do.

    Every HOA should require their Landscaping Company to provide E-Verify results - YOu should tell your neighbor to not use the landscaper who hires the illiegal (I have been told before that no one on this board uses landscapers) Who painted your house last?

    What WE are missing is common sense - we do not need a law to say do not hire an illegal - we do not need a law to say to wear a seatbelt - we do not need a law - We Do need to stick together, and use common sense - that will do more than any law will do.

    Then, we need to replace the do nothing politicians (both sides of the aisle).

    McCain - supported Amnesty until a few months ago.

    Romney - not only had illegals working on his own personal property, but was also promoting mass as a sanctuary state for illegals.

    Pres Bush - pro amnesty.

    What did Cannaughton do about the illegals while the issue was brewing in PWC all the while he server as Supervisor. What did Cory do in 2005, 2006??

    The problem did not start November 2007, as the Replublican Election material would make you think.

    I am new on the blog circuit. Love what you have going here! I was in Richmond last week and had a “brief” encounter with Senator Saslaw. I am not from your area but I agree with most of your post on his lack of merit as an elected official. I tried to speak to him about gaining some support on a couple of Senate bills concerning the esclating electric bills in my area. He turned his back on me and walked off. I chased him down and told him as a Virginia taxpayer HE works for me. I asked if his $65,000 campaign donation from Dominion Resources made his decisions for him. He did stop at that remark and turn and tell me”nothing is going to change. This issue has had all the talk it is going to get, nothing will happen this year”. I asked if the message he was sending seniors throughout the state was that he could care less if they had money to buy food or medicine much less pay their electric bills. I plan on writing a letter to his hometown paper in the editorial section so people can see how crass he is.

    We have some real doozies elected in my area and strangely enough they are joined at the hip with your rep! Of course I call them elected “officials” because they certainly can’t call themselves “representatives”. Needless to say the day after my little confrontation with him ALL of the bills died in sub-committee of which he is of course, the Chairman!! Surprise!

    Keep up the posting, love the blog!
