UVA Report On The Rule Of Law Resolution

By Greg L | 15 November 2010 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, Prince William County | 6 Comments

Tomorrow the Prince William Board of County Supervisors will release the long-awaited independent evaluation on the effects of the Rule of Law Resolution that was conducted by UVA over the past several years.  We’ve heard wild claims from the illegal alien lobby for years about how the Resolution supposedly is destroying the county, and tomorrow those claims will either be validated or laid to rest. 

I’ll be especially interested to see the evaluation on Chief Deane’s oft-repeated mantra that enforcing the law supposedly discourages crime reporting.  Deane swore up and down back when the Resolution was being considered that this was going to negatively impact cooperation with law enforcement by minority communities, and has steadfastly refused to consider that the Resolution has had any impact on crime rates in the county.  The study is specifically tasked with evaluating these claims, and the empirical evidence thus far has pretty clearly stated that Chief Deane was at least terribly misinformed, to be charitable.

Also of note will be how the hand-wringing claims of the illegal alien lobby about how these pretty modest efforts would turn Prince William County into a haven for jack-booted thugs to engage in racially-based policing will stand up to independent evaluation.  The didn’t warn this might happen if we weren’t careful, they breathlessly guaranteed to us that it would no matter what.  Were they engaged in wholesale fabrications for political purposes?  Or were they right?  Tomorrow an independent assessment will tell us.

Now I’m not all that confident this report will answer every question, nor that the answers it contains will be entirely beyond criticism.  What I am pretty certain of is that what we’ve seen with our own eyes — that the Rule of Law Resolution has had a tremendously positive impact on our community — will be validated by unbiased, third-party academic study.

We’ve waited a long time for this study to benchmark where we are and where we can make improvements.  Tomorrow the window opens up to start addressing what else needs to be done to reduce the impacts of illegal immigration on our community, to help ensure legal residents and citizens can find work, and promote public safety.  It has been a long wait, but a necessary one in order to ensure that we’re being as responsible as possible in the formulation of public policy as well as effective in achieving better outcomes for the community.

Tomorrow should be an interesting day.

    And like Project Exile, another qualified success - ROL will probably die a quiet death.

    There is just too much campaign cash available from those businesses which grow fat from illegal aliens.

    You’re absolutely right, USA. The magnet (jobs) is just too strong for even the paltry efforts of our local gendarmes to overcome. And there is no enforcement of the state law prohibiting the knowing hiring of illegal aliens. Nor should there be because it’s basically impossible to prosecute anyone under this law. All a business owner has to do to get around that law is outstretch his arms, put his palms out, and say, “I didn’t know Ingmar Guandique Carlos Martinelly-Montano was an illegal resident. He told me he was born here, showed me an Employment Authorization Document, a social security card, and several driver’s licenses issued by different states. What’s a small businessman like me supposed to do? Hire a lawyer to determine his legality?” And the traitorous bastard avoids prosecution. Of course, if he plays it straight, and hires only those whom he knows to be legal residents, he won’t be able to compete with the traitorous bastard down the street who employs illegal aliens at slave wages.

    So what’s the answer? E-verify at the state level is one approach. A law requiring every employer in the state to utilize E-verify to determine whether a new employee is authorized to work in the United States. It’s simple and it’s accurate. In those few cases where a mistake is made, it can be rectified in a few days. It is so successful and effective that every time the issue is raised there is such a hue and cry from the supporters and employers of illegal aliens that our wimpy politicians (Chuck Colgan, e.g.) run down their holes like the scared rabbits that they are.

    Even places that are naturally tough on such things like North Carolina, in which all 100 counties are in the 287 (g) program, liberals are eating away at the teeth in the laws. In Durham, N.C. police chief Jose Lopez wants to accept Mexican ID cards as legal ID and has convinced the city council to do so:

    The will of the people is not being followed.

    Besides E-verify, another apporach is to hire only those with vVrginia drivers licenses, who are presumably “legally present.”
    Also, if your’re a landlord — I am — DO NOT RENT to anyone who can’t produce a Virginia license….and I don’t.

    My point, Hazegray, is that our state leaders should enact a law REQUIRING businesses to utilize E-Verify in their hiring, or risk losing their business licenses. Scupulous, patriotic businesses already use it.

    ‘is that our state leaders should enact a law REQUIRING businesses to utilize E-Verify in their hiring, or risk losing their business licenses.’

    Exactly, however, the problem is…. our state leaders.

    They are the ones refusing to act on this.

    They are the ones who came up with the driver’s license scam which deliberately allowed illegals to keep their licenses as long as keep renewing them. For whose benefit was that little jewel dreamed up?

    And THAT was done by the people who are supposedly are on our side.
