Centreville Starts Rising Up

By Greg L | 23 June 2010 | Fairfax County, Illegal Aliens | 6 Comments

The effort to establish an official day laborer center in Centreville by open borders advocates continues unabated despite a recent huge outcry by Centreville residents at a public meeting earlier this month.  Fortunately, it seems that the shine on this monstrosity has worn off a bit, and the meeting this Tuesday only managed to draw about a dozen lefties who couldn’t provide a timeline for the establishment of this invitation for unlawful activity, or the exact site where it would be located.  About all they could manage to clarify was that no one would be checking the documentation of the day laborers to ensure that federal labor and immigration laws weren’t being violated.  

The opposition to this atrocity is joined by the newly-established Centreville Citizens Coalition, a group of local residents concerned about the negative impacts of illegal aliens on the communities in Centreville which is watching developments closely as well as mobilizing opposition to this encouragement of lawlessness.  After seeing children sexually assaulted by day laborers loitering at the Centreville Library and a steady decline in the quality of life in the community as a result of illegal immigration, having Supervisor Mike Frey join with open borders advocates has thrown gasoline on the smoldering fire and ignited a community, and they’re not sitting down on this issue any longer.

Perhaps those pushing this ridiculous idea are getting a message from the community.  It’s about time.

If this impending civic nightmare is to be avoided despite the efforts of open borders advocates, it’s going to take a lot of people to get involved to head it off and get local authorities to take seriously the public safety issues that illegal immigration presents.  The solution here isn’t to make the unlawful residency of illegal aliens more comfortable and accommodate their lawlessness, but to demand that law enforcement at the local, state and federal levels do their darned jobs to protect the citizens of this nation — which is their primary constitutional responsibility, after all.  In an economy where there are about as many unemployed Virginians as there are illegal aliens and the budget deficit for the Commonwealth is pretty close to the net costs illegal aliens impose on the Commonwealth, not enforcing current law has strong and measurable negative impacts on taxes, employment, and public safety.  Facilitating that unlawful behavior is about as foolhardy of a public policy position as is possible to devise.  The answer — the only responsible answer — is to do whatever possible to ensure that the law is enforced and that illegal aliens are encouraged or forced if necessary to return home.

Kudos to the residents of Centreville who are standing up to this insanity.  When government fails the citizens, it is the citizen’s duty to stand up and do what they can to make things right.  In this locality, as in several others in the Commonwealth, there are some brave enough to discharge this patriotic duty, and that can make a huge difference.  We’d be in a lot worse shape as a nation were it not for these patriots willing to stand up to the soft Marxism that contends we can somehow be a nation without controlling our borders.

The political fight to secure our sovereignty is waged in our communities far more than at the national level, although that’s an important venue as well.  Open borders advocates threw down the gauntlet in Centreville, and opposition to their aims is growing just as when Mexicans Without Borders threw down the gauntlet in Prince William County and Manassas and citizens rose up there to thwart their aims.  At the local level, it’s a lot easier to fight this kind of battle.  Lose it, and your next venue is at the state level where it’s much more difficult.

If you’re in the Centreville area, this is a group you need to get in contact with, as the margin between encouraging the unlawful presence of illegal aliens and discouraging their presence could well rest with you.  This is your battle, and you need to be in it.

    Or you can always do nothing, as we unfortunately are doing in Fairfax. Watch as we become increasingly overrun by illegals looking for safe harbor. Watch as our taxes rise higher and higher to pay for their subsistence. Watch as our crime rates rise and our quality of life falls. Watch as hard working, tax paying families like mine move out of Fairfax.

    Gerry Connolly - I lay much of the blame directly at your feet and I can see November from my house.

    I lay the blame at Frank Wolf’s feet. Spineless RINO who refuses to take a side on this issue as neighborhood after neighborhood in his district turn into barrios. The traffic and the amount of illegals here in the park has reached EPIC proportions in the past 3 months. It literally takes 30 minutes to go the 3 miles from my house to the braddock/28 intersection now if I leave after 6:30. It’s truly ridiculous and EVERY single BIT of it is attributable to overcrowding that MP does not enforce and a good bet most of it is due to illegals.

    It is going to be a moot point soon when Obama bypasses congress and legalizes them all.

    This is a bit lengthy, so please bear with me. This article in the WaPo was about an illegal gunned down in DC while working on a foreclosure rehab. However, comments made by the contractor - Rafael Canela - showed just how far reaching the effects of illegal alien sub contractors can be.

    I fully understand most here are McDonnell and Cuccinelli advocates, however McDonnell made it clear during is campaign that he would NOT mandate E-Verify and SSN Verification state wide because it would be too costly and inconvenient for small businesses and contractors. Those of us who have used either or both of these employment verification processes know this is not so, which makes me question McDonnell’s real intent to hold harmless contractors and sub constractors who hire illegal aliens.



    When I read news items like this - about corrupt contractors who hire unlicensed and often improperly trained illegal aliens to undercut Americans professionals, I can’t help but wonder how many unsuspecting homeowners are deceived by Canela and his business associates (real estate brokers) far-reaching and intentional fraud.

    Of particular concern is most illegal aliens like Sanchez are illiterate in their own language. Sanchez left school in the third grade and was incapable of reading and understanding simple instructions. His perceived knowledge of electrical wiring and plumbing is based solely on the experience of Rafael Canela. As the WaPo did not include Canela’s credentials, we have no way of knowing the extent of his skills and if limited, if he passed along his deficiencies to his workers.

    WaPo was very careful not to mention the Real Estate Brokers Canela works with on a regular basis, for obvious reasons. Of course to do so would implicate them and destroy their careers.

    Most people who read articles like this rarely see the far reaching effects of this plight on America by illegal aliens and how it pertains the end users - unsuspecting homeowners who may buy a home they feel is safe, but actually fraught with building code violations – covered up by everyone from the contractor doing the work to the lender who failed to do due diligence when inspecting the property and processing the loan to the government agencies in place to ensure contractors and their workers are licensed and competent in their fields.

    In the end Americans will always be on the losing end when state and local governments don’t do their jobs. This goes far beyond enforcing immigration and employment laws – it is about protecting citizens and ensuring people buy homes that are safe and meet code in a very fragile real estate market.

    It is especially disturbing that McDonnell, VA’s governor, campaigned to support this loop hole in our employment laws that ensure contractors like Canela, and their associates are held harmless when these illegal actions are exposed. McDonnell publicly stated that he would not subject VA contractors and sub contractors to the expense and inconvenience of verifying their workers by mandating E-Verify and SSN Verification. That the process is free and relatively simple clearly demonstrates there is more to McDonnell’s decision than cost and convenience.

    It is impossible to know how many VA real estate brokers work with Canela and his team of “personally trained” illegal aliens to rehab homes that have been and will be sold to unsuspecting clients. This clearly demonstrates that the “surface problem” resulting from legislators’ failure to enforce existing law, is just the tip of the iceberg.

    “City Taken Over Illegal Immigrants Collapses into Bankruptcy and Lawlessness”

    “Dateline Maywood, California. This Los Angeles County municipality — 97% Hispanic, 40% illegal — was one of the first cities to declare itself a sanctuary city and to demand a boycott of the state of Arizona for enforcing immigration laws. Its city council is entirely Hispanic and dominated by La Raza racists. Years ago, it prohibited its police department from confiscating cars from unlicensed drivers. It has demanded Congress grant unconditional amnesty to illegal immigrants. It is every progressive left/Wall Street Journal policy on open borders concentrated in one Los Angeles suburb.

    How’s that working out for them?

    Today, Maywood is broke. Its police department dismantled along with all other city departments and personnel. Only the city council remains and a city manager to manage the contracts with other agencies for city services in Maywood.
    Even the L.A. Times called the Maywood Police Department a “haven for misfit cops.” Their story alleged that a veteran officer was extorting sex from relatives of a criminal fugitive; that another officer tried to run over the president of the Maywood Police Commission; and that another officer has impregnated a teenage police-explorer scout.

    Maywood is the end result of what Obama-Napolitano-La Raza-the Arizona boycotters and the editorial board of the WSJ want for America.”

    This Centreville situation is another fine example of the selective non-enforcement that is practiced by our government. An illegal immigrant went on a rampage and was supposedly deported… but then he came back - and all they can do is bar him from the premises??? And the victims have to pay for their own protection??? Surprisingly, this is from the anti-enforcement Washington Post.

    Immigrant shop owners in Centreville divided over proposed day-laborer site
    Washington Post, June 16, 2010

    “Last year, one of the day laborers barged in, drunk, to the Baskin-Robbins owned by Guyanese-born Rayman Hamid, 47, cursing and scaring the families sitting at his tables. Hamid, who became a U.S. citizen 20 years ago, called the police. The man, an illegal immigrant, was deported, Hamid said, but he returned a few months later looking for Hamid, who had stepped out; police were called, and the man was barred from the shopping center.

    To forestall such incidents, the merchants agreed to chip in for extra security to keep the day laborers on the other side of the parking lot.”

    There is a pattern here. The pattern is this: ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE ABOVE THE LAW. Prince Wiliam County and the Town of Herndon broke the pattern years ago, much to the dismay of the Washington Post. Remember this?

    Police Enforcement of Immigration Laws Raises Worry
    By Bill Turque and Karin Brulliard
    Washington Post, October 1, 2006; C07

    “…the message was clear: The new council wanted a tougher stance on crime in general and crime committed by illegal immigrants in particular.

    Bestway customer Marvin Alexander, 30, a Salvadoran in the country illegally, said he is concerned about the changes the new council will bring. He said Herndon police recently stopped an acquaintance of his, also an illegal immigrant, who did not have a license. Officers did not cite her.

    “Imagine if that happened now,” Alexander said.”

    Oh, horrors - imagine, the LAW being enforced… what a concept! Once again, we see the pattern: ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE ABOVE THE LAW. She was driving with no license? Well, she appeared to be an illegal alien, so they just let her go! If it had been you or me, there would have been consequences. This is equal protection of the law? And now in Centreville we are seeing that if someone is here illegally, and he wants to come threaten you - even if he gets deported (and that IS unusual) but he comes right back, well maybe you can get some order of protection, but that’s about it, because there is great resistance to deporting an illegal alien - even one with a known history of violence. Wonderful! It has gotten to the point where I am surprised that legal residents are even allowed to hire security guards.

    What is it going to take, before we start enforcing our laws?
