McDonnell Pushes Janet Incompetano

By Greg L | 10 June 2011 | National Politics, Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 10 Comments

Nine months ago Governor McDonnell requested that the Department of Homeland Security approve Virginia’s request to participate in the Section 287(g) Program and to date he’s heard nothing from the federal government.  Virginia is offering to spend state taxpayer dollars to help the federal government do their job and what happens with that offer?  It sits there without any action whatsoever.  To date, the Obama administration has failed to act on any of the more than a dozen requests by states and localities to participate in this program to help the feds do the job they clearly are incapable of performing.

Last August, the governor asked the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to allow a group of 28 select officers to deport illegal immigrants who have engaged in terrorism, committed major drug and gang offenses, committed violent crimes like murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery and kidnapping, or found driving while intoxicated.

On Friday, he released a letter he sent last month to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano last month, petitioning for speedy approval.

“We have patiently waited nine months for formal approval and the time to act is now,” Mr. McDonnell said in the letter. “Virginia meets all the qualifications and has proven to be an excellent partner state and I ask you to approve our application without further delay.”

Apparently having states participate in a law enforcement partnership that would remove criminal illegal aliens from the United States isn’t something the Obama Administration is interested in as they fall all over themselves to try to give amnesty to these lawbreakers.  No matter how many Americans have to die at the hands of illegal aliens who wouldn’t be here if the federal government only did its job, this administration is quite clearly dedicated to protecting criminals and sending it’s lawyers to harass and prevent the victims from protecting themselves.

That “hope and change” isn’t working out quite so well, is it?

    The resistance to local help in fighting illegals can only be for one of two reasons: because the left wants to pander to illegals in hopes that they’re one day empowered to vote, or because… Well, I guess there is only one reason.

    It’s been about cheap labor all along, but the numbers have increased so much that now it is starting to be about votes. But it is still mostly about cheap labor. Money talks, loudly. And then it swears.

    The plan is:

    Keep them illegal,
    to keep them cheap.
    -And keep them coming.

    This is why nothing is happening. And it’s not just the Left Wing. Even if the Right Wing completely sweeps the 2012 elections, nothing will happen. Don’t forget that nothing happened all the way from 2002 to 2006, when the Right Wing ruled the federal government. In fact, we were threatened with amnesty in 2005 and 2006! Remember that? The talking heads told us that we had won when that didn’t happen - but then we just continued with the old plan:

    Keep them illegal,
    to keep them cheap.
    -And keep them coming.

    It’s all an endless stall tactic, for the purpose of protecting the cheap labor and keeping certain powerful interests rich. Both parties are in on it. And the Tea Party is about tax, and not about national borders. We are looking at a very serious problem.

    They don’t care as long as they all live in Manassas Park or some other hideaway locality. It’s us that have to deal with the overcrowding, the tagging, the gangs, etc, not the politicians wheeling and dealing for their corporate buds. I am HIGHLY disappointed in mcdonnel and cooch in that they haven’t done JACK to try and alleviate the problem that localities like Manassas Park are having to deal with. Several states have passed illegal alien crackdown laws in the past year and have been found to be legal. The illegals quickly leave those states for sanctuary states like North Carolina and Virginia and then the problem gets worse. Very disappointed in those two guys…

    I believe that several bills regarding illegal immigration issues passed the House only to be killed in the Senate. November is coming, we have an opportunity to take a different approach.

    We’ve tried to get better laws passed through the General Assembly in each of the sessions from 2007 on, and in each instance the Senate of Virginia has roadblocked every meaningful effort. Until we change the Senate, there will be no effective effort by the state to address the problem.

    As far as the Park goes, Chief Evans and the Governing Board could start enforcing the law against lawbreakers. They won’t. I talked with Preston Banks about this recently and he very much wants to address the problem but he doesn’t have the votes on the Board.

    I would suggest you start beating them up at Citizen’s time. I can pretty much guarantee that if you do that for four meetings in a row they might start getting uncomfortable about it. So far only a handful of people have talked with the board about it over the past few years. I tried, but the Board has a policy that you have to be a Manassas Park resident in order to speak unless it’s a public hearing, so it’s up to MP residents themselves to start turning up the heat on this.

    McDonnell moved the E-Verify bill up from 2013 to July 1 2011. He can’t do much without a bill to do something with. Senators like Colgan are the ones to blame. But we keep electing them year after year.

    Amen, Maureen. Why isn’t anyone running against Colgan - like Jackson? Colgan is one of the road blocks to any anti-illegal alien legislation.

    I would love to see Jackson run for senate.

    I agree that it is going to get worse before it gets better. With states in the south like Alabama, Texas and Georgia fighting back with tough laws and North Carolina in the study phase, they are going to come to places like Virginia and Maryland. As a former LEO I am sickened and disgusted with what our elected officials will put up with for cheap labor, things such as child rape and murder of our citizens.
