With precinct-level census figure now available, there’s some fascinating data available about population and voter registration rates in Prince William County. This quick-and-dirty way to spot outliers where the most illegal aliens unlawfully resident in the county isn’t by itself the perfect means of pinpointing spots where additional law enforcement and zoning attention would help, but with a little insight as to why variances might exist it’s a pretty good way to spot trouble spots, or at least to confirm them.
First, let’s look at the big outliers in the data set, and it’s pretty apparent those don’t have much to do with illegal immigration at all. On the low end we have the Quantico precinct that has only 29% of the population of the nearly six thousand residents registered to vote. If the name isn’t a dead giveaway here, the large population of transient military personnel who are registered to vote elsewhere in this precinct should be obvious. On the positive side, the Bull Run precinct on the other side of the county has a whopping 95% of their 3,500 residents registered to vote. Since the precinct is almost entirely comprised of the Heritage Hunt, there aren’t children to speak of, and not too many illegal aliens buy their way into upscale gated retirement communities.
Setting these outliers aside, the remainder of the precincts with low voter registration percentages match up pretty closely with the map of locations where illegal aliens have been arrested. The county average is 56%, which makes the following rather suspect:
To see where these precincts are, Virtucon has a map of them. In general, these are the precincts around Route 234 from Route 66 to Sudley Manor Drive on the western side of the county, and those between Route 1 and Interstate 95 in Woodbridge.
Without these districts dragging down the average, we’d likely have between 60-65% of the population registered to vote, which is roughly what the average is for the Coles and Occoquan Districts that don’t have precincts within them that experience much in the way of illegal alien connected residential overcrowding. Sudley North and Library both have active day labor sites, crime rate problems, and high enrollment in ESOL programs in their schools, and other than the day labor sites, the rest on this list experience much of the same problems.
If I were a really smart official in the county’s zoning office, these areas would be the ones I’d concentrate on, working from the top of this list on down. If I were trying to identify where illegal alien absconders were hiding out like the one who murdered three people in Manassas recently, this is where I’d be looking. Putting this list together with the maps of crimes, which match awfully closely, it is a pretty reliable priority list that is based on objective data.
What’s also possible is to subtract from these precincts the number of children under 18 and you can get a fairly close approximation of the number of foreign nationals or other persons not eligible to vote within a pretty compact geographical area. As several studies (including those on the other side) have suggested, about 50% of all foreign nationals resident in Virginia are illegally present. Someday when there’s an administration that might actually have some interest in seeing that the law is enforced, they might want to send agents to those precincts as it would obviously be time well spent on their part.
