Two days before an illegal alien goes on a murderous rampage in Manassas that leaves three people dead, Delegate Patrick Hope of Arlington tries to argue that it is unfair to have illegal aliens who commit felonies held in our jails and that law enforcement doesn’t have the resources to detain and process for deportation these criminal illegal aliens. This is precisely the kind of insanity that grips open borders leftists and permits criminal illegal aliens to run amok in our communities — something Delegate Jackson Miller is clearly working very hard to combat.
Before debate on this bill started, we learned that illegal alien members of MS-13 plead guilty to attempted murder, extortion and racketeering in Alexandria as part of a scheme to traffic prostitutes into Maryland and Virginia. A previously deported illegal alien was arrested for raping and sodomizing an eight year old child in Centreville, after he had been arrested for being drunk in public and released by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office. Yet here’s Patrick Hope doing everything he can do to make sure that the most effective tool that would allow the Commonwealth to identify criminal illegal aliens and have them removed is not going to be employed.
Even before the Manassas massacre Delegate Jackson Miller understood the imperative here, even if no amount of evidence would likely shake the open borders lobby from their dedication to protecting illegal aliens from the consequences of their behavior. The very lives of Virginians quite clearly hang in the balance with legislation such as HB 1934. Democrats such as Patrick Hope have a clear choice to make here: will they do what they can to ensure that illegal aliens who commit crimes in Virginia are deported, or would they rather have these illegal aliens released back into our communities so they can engage in even more heinous crimes?
This bill is now being considered by the Senate of Virginia. The Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee is Chuck Colgan, who represents the very district in which the Manassas massacre happened. As the most senior member of that body, and the chairman of the most politically important committee there, Chuck Colgan has the power to tell his colleagues that if they do not pass HB 1934 and the other illegal immigration related bills that passed the house, he is going to shut down every one of their budget requests. This happens all the time. With seniority comes power, and Colgan can choose to wield it to protect the lives of his constituents, or he can do his usual ostrich routine and let these bills be killed along with more of his constituents.
So how about it Chuck? Are you ready to finally use that political power you are so eager to tell your constituents about to do something that might prevent them from being the next victim of a violent criminal illegal alien? Or are you going to throw up your hands and point fingers at others demonstrating that the power you supposedly have isn’t what you say it is?
We’ll be watching.
