Here’s a little blast from the past for those out there who seem to have forgotten that Coles District Supervisor Marty Nohe turned out to be a big moral supporter of the illegal alien lobby back during the debate over the Rule of Law Resolution. When the illegal alien lobby got all worried that local businesses that specifically catered to illegal aliens were going to have their businesses hurt because illegal aliens unlawfully present here were leaving, Marty Nohe was the first to start pandering to them. Soon after that Nohe was the driver behind an effort to protect illegal aliens who instead of trying to get jobs by using identity fraud, took the route of getting business licenses instead because Nohe prevented any attempts by the county to ensure these licenses weren’t being unlawfully provided to illegal aliens.
Nohe has been masterful about being everything to everyone on this issue. He voted for the Rule of Law Resolution, proudly telling supporters of it that he authored the final version of it. When it came time for county supervisors to vote on whether they would recommend the policy to the state, suddenly Nohe’s own legislative accomplishment wasn’t good enough and he voted against it. First he supported the recommendations of the county staff who told us they were surprised that while it was against the law to give business licenses to illegal aliens, then he claimed it was too burdensome to even bother verifying the information provided on these applications and ensured illegal aliens could start businesses in Prince William County even though they were ineligible to be hired. He even then offered that CASA de Maryland, the illegal alien front group that runs day laborer centers and agitates for in-state tuition rates for illegal aliens is just fine, as long as they report where their funding comes from. Then there’s his whole support for global warming hysteria, which would hardly seem to square with his supposedly pro-business agenda.
When the county was cracking down on illegal immigration, Nohe came front and center with the illegal alien lobby promoting their policy objectives, as the above video demonstrates. If ever there was someone entirely devoid of principle on this issue, and as it turns out quite a few others, it was Marty Nohe. Massive residential development? It’s fine with him until he starts cozying up to the rural crescent crowd. Keeping taxes low? That’s only a buzzword with him, as he’s been at the forefront to keep taxes as high as possible. Keep illegal aliens from killing innocent citizens in the county by discouraging their unlawful presence? Only of concern until such efforts might hurt businesses that help perpetuate the unlawful presence of illegal aliens in our communities.
We really can do a lot better in the Coles District. Anyone supporting this guy really needs their head examined.
