Team America PAC, run by Congressman Tom Tancredo and Bay Buchanan gave a little bit of love to Prince William County this evening in the inaugural of their “Team America’s Immigration Alert”. In their first salutation of “local heroes”, Prince William County gets the nod. Yes folks, we are definitely inspiring the nation.
Enforcement Works in Prince William County
Prince William County doesn’t want to turn into Mattawa or Miami. Unlike the federal government, the legislators in the county actually care about what their constituents think. Last year, the County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a common sense law that requires the police to check the immigration status of people they arrest and denies non-essential government benefits like rental assistance to illegal aliens.
The predictable hysteria ensued. Corporate America threatened to pull business out of the county. Politicians, ethnic lobbies, and the mainstream media all called them “racist” and “xenophobic.” But the county stuck to their guns and now the illegal immigrants are leaving the county in droves.
Newsweek just ran a sob story about the plight of illegal aliens in the town, “Nancy Lyall, of the immigrant advocacy group Mexicans Without Borders, says she doesn’t know what effect the policy change will have, but that it appears to have already damaged the Hispanic community.
‘The community is still completely devastated,’ she said. ‘And for those obviously that have left, there’s certainly no reason for them to go back.’”
That’s the point of enforcement, Amiga!
Despite the hyperbole in the article that was quoted here, the simple fact that it is easily possible to encourage illegal aliens to depart if law enforcement is credible is something that the open borders lobby refuses to admit. While they remain fixated on the idea that there’s no solution other than physically deporting at least twelve million illegal aliens, we’re proving right here, along with some other states and localities that are following the same approach, that if illegal aliens consider the chances of them being held to account for their unlawful actions to be high, they will deport themselves.
Attrition through enforcement works. We’re proving it, along with Oklahoma, Arizona, and Georgia.
