Does anyone else find it amazing that representatives of Mexicans Without Borders can alternately claim that racial profiling by the Prince William County Police Department is rife, and also admit they are unaware of a single instance of racial profiling? The willingness of the left to so obviously prevaricate is boundless, and one wonders why anyone bothers even talking to folks like this.
First, let’s look at an article in the illegal alien-friendly Washington Post:
“Civil rights violations are going on” in Prince William, said Nancy Lyall, legal coordinator for Mexicanos Sin Fronteras, one of the groups meeting with the Justice Department. “People are being stopped and questioned for no apparent reason while walking their dogs. . . . The quality of life for a Latino in the community is different than the quality of life for a white person in the community.”
Now, let’s see what this same individual said to a National Review reporter:
If nothing else, Prince William County has not suffered a racial-profiling controversy of the type that Deane once feared. One of the enforcement policy’s most outspoken critics is Nancy Lyall of Mexicans Without Borders, an immigrant-rights group. Since 2007, she has attacked Prince William’s tactics with a fervor that others have devoted to Arizona’s. When I asked whether she could identify a single case of a citizen or legal permanent resident, Hispanic or otherwise, who was mistakenly brought into custody because of racial profiling, she paused. Then she made a reluctant confession: “No.” In a survey, 73 percent of Hispanics said they were satisfied with the overall performance of the police department.
It is well worth noting that Lyall represents a group initially named “Comite Zapatista Los Pasamontanas“, which roughly translates as Zapatista Committee of the Knitted Cap, referring to the ski mask which is so de rigeur among these marxist revolutionaries who engaged in an armed rebellion against the Mexican government in the 1990’s. These self-described anarchists don’t depart at all from the methodology used by other anarchist groups — namely to pursue their agenda at any cost and blatantly lie if that’s what they think will advance their cause.
Of course, only the Washington Post takes such mendacity at face value. Fortunately when they supposedly commit journalism there are a few folks out there who are going to follow up on their biased reporting and actually try to dig for the real story.
As for the effort by Mexicans Without Borders to encourage the Justice Department to investigate Prince William County, this administration has an important choice to make: either they rightly ignore a radical group who has been earnestly searching for plaintiffs for years and failed to find a single credible case for litigation, or they throw in their lot with anarchist revolutionaries allied to armed insurgents in the third world. I figure the voters will learn a lot about the Obama Administration by the decision they make.
I certainly will.
