Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

When Will They Learn?

By Greg L | 20 December 2010 | Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 10 Comments

What a nice surprise to have Tucker Carlson appear on The Grandy Group this morning during my drive in to work giving kudos to Prince William County.  Tucker is one of the few who have noticed the connection between discouraging the presence of illegal aliens and reduced municipal costs, something particularly helpful during difficult economic times.  Given these proven results, you have to wonder why other localities have chosen instead to raise taxes and fund public benefits that support illegal aliens rather than cutting costs by encouraging illegal aliens to leave.

While many localities in America are facing budget shortfalls and mounting debt, one county in Virginia has escaped massive deficits and instead measurably reduced the overall size of government. Prince William County (PWC) is the second largest county in Virginia and now the number-one job growth locality in the region – with one of the lowest tax burdens – a distinction the chairman of the Board of County Supervisors, Corey Stewart, contends is directly attributable to the disciplined implementation of conservative principles and a harsh crackdown on illegal immigration.

The open borders crowd has consistently issued dire warnings that discouraging the unlawful presence of illegal aliens would be disastrous economically, and still try to maintain the fiction that the Rule of Law Resolution did economic harm to the county.  Between the report by UVA and the county’s own budget figures, that’s been demonstrated to be yet another fanciful but dire prediction — about as reliable as the global warming “hockey stick” graph that promised us millions would die from twenty foot sea level rises — if not a deliberate and outright lie.

Every area of PWC has made reductions and, as of today, the county has cut more than $140 million from the cost of government, and is employing the lowest number of full-time government workers in the D.C. region. Indeed, residents of the county pay tax bills nearly 30% lower than in neighboring counties. The business community has responded, PWC is now the number one job growth county in Virginia and the D.C. region and number two in terms of job growth on the East Coast.

Yeah, that’s some economic disaster folks.  Lower taxes, less spending, more job growth, less crime and a dramatically better quality of life.  The next time liberals give us a prediction of what the impacts of a policy would be, it would be statistically more valid to expect the exact opposite rather than believe anything they’re saying.  With a track record like they’ve managed to record, you wish they were sitting opposite you at a poker table with all of George Soros’ money.

Unfortunately, when liberals and their open borders allies are gambling, they’re doing it with your money.  At least we’re learning not to trust them anymore.

    It would be nice if we could continue that trend and demand proof of residency for school enrolments like we do for VA driver’s licenses….as it stands now, all you need to do is fill out an Affidavit of residency. Lots of cars with MD and DC plates in the drop off/pick up lines at our local school.

    As it stands now, there are two separate and distinct standards for enrolling kids in local schools: one for US citizens and legal residents (bring me your deed to your house) and one for illegals (here, sign this Affidavit, no questions asked). Which group is a greater burden on the taxpayers?

    I still don’t see how anyone can call the rez a success when Deane told Corey to go $h1t in his hat for all intents and purposes and refused to enforce it? How is that a success when your own chief of police disregards you and the legal will of the people like that? Are there fewer illegals here now than there were then? I think not ladies and gentleman. A stroll through the park or a cruise down rt. 234 will show even the layest of laymen that there are just as many or more illegals here now than there ever were. These articles about how the rez was such a success are Soviet style propaganda circa 1979 and nothing more. It was a success alright. It was the catalyst for an all at once chain reaction in foreclosures and precipitous drop in property values that still hasn’t fully abated.

    Good article on the games our national “leaders” play:

    Alas, the Republicans were insufficiently sweetened. Though the House passed the bill 216-198 on Dec. 8, it was defeated by the Senate on Saturday by getting 55 yea votes to 41 nay votes.

    While in most democracies 55-41 would be a victory, the U.S. Senate retains a feature called the “filibuster,” which would be better suited for the comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan than for lawmaking but requires 60 votes to accomplish anything.

    So the DREAM Act has gone down to defeat, and various people now proffer differing reasons. Naftali Bendavid, writing in The Wall Street Journal, a publication we have ironed and placed next to our kippers every morning, said Republicans complained that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid “was seeking to push through the DREAM Act, as well as a repeal of the prohibition on gays serving openly in the military, a spending bill and the New START nuclear arms pact with Russia at essentially the same time, just days before Christmas.”

    Imagine members of Congress being required to enact legislation before going on one of their frequent holidays! The outrage of it! We admit we were amused, and a smile almost passed upon our lips.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) had a different reason for voting against the bill. “We’re not going to pass the DREAM Act, or any legalization program, until we secure our borders,” he said.

    The impossibility of securing so large a border — especially since Americans are squeamish about the use of land mines — is well-known to all. For every 50-foot fence, the saying goes, there is a 51-foot ladder.

    The way to stop illegal immigration is at the workplace, not at the border. If businesses had an inexpensive and reliable way of verifying who was in the country illegally, and if immigration laws punishing businesses for hiring illegal immigrants were enforced, one-third of the immigration problem would be solved.

    The second third is deciding who should be allowed into the country legally and permanently — high-tech workers, nurses, plus a lottery for those less fortunate? And the final third is deciding what to do about the 12 million or so undocumented immigrants who are already living in America, some of them for decades.

    This is called “closing the back door, closing the front door and deciding what to do with those trapped in between.”

    Why, then, do we have these votes on bills that are sure to fail?

    Bruce Morrison, an expert on immigration, tells us: “Was this about passing the DREAM Act, or was this about telling Hispanics that Democrats love them and Republicans hate them?”

    So was this all a charade, a Kabuki dance, a stage act? Was this all, in other words, about politics?

    We shudder.

    Sorry, I forgot to post the 1st page:

    By ROGER SIMON | 12/21/10 4:40 AM EST Updated: 12/21/10 7:30 AM EST
    As the death rattle of the 111th Congress approaches its rheumy end, we admit that there are some actions our lawmakers have taken that do not displease us. (Why we are talking like Queen Victoria, we do not know.)

    We are happy that a tax deal that enriched everybody from the ultra-deserving middle class to the scoundrel rich also will continue benefits to the unemployed. We are pleased with the end of “don’t ask, don’t tell” making it possible for gays and lesbians to openly risk their lives in our military adventures like everyone else.

    And it is also to be hoped that an arms reduction treaty with Russia will be ratified, as we think we already have a sufficiency of nuclear warheads to incinerate the globe and everything on it an ample number of times.

    Our displeasure was acute, however, with the failure of the Senate to pass the DREAM Act, which stands, we are assured, for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act.

    To put it simply — and we prefer to put things simply so that members of Congress will understand us — if you were a small child smuggled in your mother’s arms across the border into the United States but now you have graduated from high school without seriously running afoul of the law and have attended two years of college, or if you wanted to serve your country in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda, you could get on the pathway to citizenship under this act.

    (Some journalists, with whom we spend company as rarely as possible and think about even less, have written that the DREAM Act would bestow citizenship. It would not. It would give recipients a green card, making them resident aliens who could apply for citizenship in five years if they maintained high moral character, something somewhat difficult to do in this country if the shows we see on our television receiver are to be believed.)

    President Barack Obama, for whom we have considerable respect, thought the DREAM Act would be the “easy” part of his comprehensive immigration reform package because it dealt with students and soldiers, whom some find it difficult to dislike without first meeting them.

    Obama even bargained for Republican votes by sweetening the deal: He got tough on deportations, raising them to a record 390,000 per year, to show that he was no immigration “patsy” (a term we learned by watching “CSI: Miami”).

    Instead of using our words to describe things like “reduced municipal costs” can we see some numbers. Regarding the $140K in reduce spending in PWC, have you seen the list and checked it twice? A lot of it was unspent CIP funding, cancelled Transportation projects and ‘readjustements’ in OIT. You may ask the Budget Office or your Supervisor for a copy. Show me the reduced spending due to moving illegals out of PWC. Misrepresenting savings is a very liberal tactic. Suprrised it was employed here. Get the list of the savings. Print it. Glad they left though, just believe in accuracy.

    The reduced spending in OIT was spread out and now shows as spending in various departments…for projects OIT will do. So yeah, I think a lot of the savings from running the illegals off is nothing but smoke and mirrors.

    I just learned the Prince William County Police Department Criminal Alien Unit is no longer. After speaking to several Police Officer/Detectives, the unit was broken down. Supervisor Richard Cundiff and Michael Crosbie who are in charge of such unit placed the certified ICE officer into different assignments but yet making them keep their certification to deceive the public that the unit still exists. Although the department does have certified ICE officer within the department, the Criminal Alien Unit is no longer. After reviewing arrests numbers it is apparent of the credibility of such information as immigration arrest has significantly gone down.

    The Police Department has been targeting cases that will catch media attention. When a significant case rises, the supervisor pulls out the certified ICE officer from his current assignment to make an immigration arrest. They make it appear as if they have been proactive with immigration arrests and issues. One of their current high profiled arrests was the nun killed by a drunken illegal immigrant. Such arrest made the public think that the Criminal Alien Unit reacted but in this case it was the ICE certified jail officers because the police department immigration unit is gone. One reason heard of such movement was, they were placed in different area of the department to increase immigration arrests within the department. However, if you look at each ICE certified officer arrest record the number speaks for its self; they have a max of one arrest a month if that. In many occasion there has been many months in which the officers has zero immigration arrests.

    Further information obtained indicates the police department has been making these changes to include the breakage of the Criminal Alien Unit without letting the board of supervisor know. They have used deception to make them think the unit exists and are remain proactive by making immigration arrests. They have not told them of the unit breakage and where they have place the ICE certified officers. If the board of supervisor is allowing the police department to do this, what else are they keeping away from the public? What other deceptions is the Police Department responsible for?

    I am looking for more sources to contribute to this news. If you have further information please post it with some sort of contact method so I contact you privately and create a future headline on the newspaper. Headlines will read sort of “Prince William Police Deceives It’s Citizen.”
