RINO Kills State-wide 287(g)

By Greg L | 7 March 2012 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, Virginia Senate | 15 Comments

As Jeff Frederick so often pointed out, it’s not important that you elect Republicans to the State Senate, it’s important that you elect the right ones.

One of the “wrong” ones is Senator John Watkins, of the 10th District.  To follow up on his voting against HB 1 this year, he motioned for a voice vote yesterday on the Senate floor yesterday that killed HB 1001 without a recorded vote.  For making it possible for his fellow senators to anonymously prevent Virginia’s enrollment in the same program that has resulted in the deportation of over 4,000 criminal illegal aliens from Prince William County, along with his votes for abortion, John Watkins richly deserves to be run out of Richmond on a rail.

Seriously, can’t people in Chesterfield County come up with anyone better to represent them than a doofus like this who wants to protect criminal illegal aliens from being deported?

    They’re just helping out their developer and builder funders who love the cheap easily manipulated illegal labor.

    This was in an email.

    Yesterday, thanks to your efforts and many others across the Commonwealth, we defeated one of the remaining harmful immigration bills moving through the Virginia General Assembly.

    Despite the Obama Administration’s plans to phase out the costly and ineffective 287G program, HB 1001 attempted to give 287G even more power in Virginia. Thankfully, HB 1001 was voted down in a voice vote on the Senate floor, following a motion by Senator John Watkins.

    Thanks for all you do!

    No shortage of traitors in Virginia or the USA.

    And it is not anti-immigrant legislation; it is anti-illegal immigration legislation. However, I realize that liberals and the corrupt elected traitors in the state and federal legislatures, can not delineate the difference between illegal immigrants and legal immigrants.

    Loudoun Insider - I could not have said it any better myself. This move was about protecting special interests and campaign supporters rather than immigration - illegal or legal. 287(G) works and it is in no way detrimental to legal immigration or a barrier to those who want to come to the U.S. honestly.

    With economy picking up some steam, watch for more measures like this as developers will increasingly want cheap, exploitable labor. In the end, we pay the price through a lower quality of life, higher taxes, and more overcrowding and congestion.

    Compare the voting records of those who killed statewide 287(G) with their campaign donors on www.vpap.org.

    FYI - Here’s Watkins’ campaign finance history by industry:


    Need we say more?

    Watkins has killed several good (meaning mainstream) bills this year.

    He is a traitor. I wonder what other type of law breaking does he support? Child rape, maybe? Who knows, but anyone who is willing to support illegals is not only morally wrong, but must also have a damaged brain, and does not know right from wrong.

    “He is a traitor”

    True. But what does he care as long as the donations continue to come into his campaign coffers.

    You forgot crime. For example, check this one!

    When reviewing the VPAP report keep in mind that the Real Estate/Construction category does not tell the entire story. Other categories such as Finance, Insurance, Law, other business businesses, etc. reflect to a large extent campaign money from development interests. Watkins’ report is blatant as is in terms of his being bought by the development industry but much of that money is in other categories. One big one is the mortgage lenders who are counted in finance. If you went through the details of this report, his subservience to the development industry would be even greater than appears in what I linked.

    “Cynic” is correct that I neglected to mention crime in my original posts. 287(g) is aimed at removing criminal illegal aliens from our communities. It doesn’t even touch people who are here illegally but have committed no other crimes. That means the actions of Watkins and other politicians of his ilk are even more despicable. In the service of their development industry campaign donors and their desire for cheap labor, these politicians are willing to subject our communities not only to the quality of life problems I mentioned, but also to the ongoing presence of dangerous criminals.

    His name will join others in the virtual tapestry being woven.

    Just today an “illegal” illegal alien daycare killed an infant, an illegal raped a 15 year old girl and a flop house trailer with 14 illegal aliens was closed down. What he should be asking himself is if the invaders will show him as much mercy when they take over the country? My guess is no.

    Talking about RINO I heard Sheriff Hill fired his Chief Deputy over budget issues a couple of weeks ago. Does anyone know the details?

    I think you are aware that watkins owned the largest (5000 acres) nursery in Chesterfield, using “labor” to keep it profitable. The property was recently turned into the largest commercail development south of the James. The Republican business community does not want any infringement on using cheap labor and lobbied hard for the bill to fail.

    What is “un-Republican” about this position?
