Fairfax Supervisor Michael Frey desperately wants a primary challenge. There’s no other way to interpret his recent comments at the Centreville Immigration Forum, a local lobby seeking to protect illegal aliens from the consequences of their unlawful actions and promote the illegal hiring of foreign nationals in Centreville.
Immigration has always been controversial, he said, and a part of American history. “A certain segment has always resisted it,” said Frey. “Today’s no different, and we just have to accept that some people don’t like change and will oppose it. But I don’t think that’s the majority.”
“Many say the focus of our efforts should be to enforce immigration law,” he said. “The [Fairfax County] Board of Supervisors has never adopted that philosophy. Immigration is an issue to be worked out at the national level, and the county has no desire to get in the middle of [it]. It’s against the law to be in this country illegally, but it’s not the job of the Fairfax County Police Department to enforce that — there’s real crime for them to focus on.”
Frey said day-labor sites are relatively new and have only sprung up in the past decade. “They’re evidence of a changing economy,” he said. “Businesses looked for people to hire for a specific job, and it caught on. Tourism, construction and the service industry have jobs they can’t fill with Americans — and that’s what brings immigrants here.”
…To him, said Frey, “The concept of a gathering place or center is a common-sense solution to these fears and misperceptions. I understand when women have expressed fears about going to the library or shopping centers because of large gatherings of men [waiting outside for potential employers]. Any large gathering of men can be intimidating, no matter what their ethnicity.”
Not only intimidating, but a demonstrated public safety issue.
Please, someone challenge this utter idiot. He’s doing everything he can to ensure another tragedy in Centreville.
