Virginia county to ban all possible services to illegals

Prince William County, Virginia may have the toughest of a growing number of resolutions across the country seeking to deter illegal immigration.

The county banned illegal immigrants from using services, including the municipal swimming pool and the public library when its Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution banning illegal immigrants from most government-funded services, as well as increasing enforcement of immigration laws.

“Because of the federal failure to really address the immigration issue and because of the public outcry of our constituents," Supervisor John T. Stirrup Jr said, the issue, which had been "simmering for the past couple years” came to the forefront. Stirrup, who introduced the resolution, resolution, has stoutly defended the measure as "the first step toward taking back our community."

If it withstands expected legal challenges, the resolution asks all county agencies to report on services that can be denied, those that can't be denied and those that are at the discretion of officials. It also directs the Police Department to determine the immigration status of individuals who are legally detained when there is probable cause for such a check, and to come up with a standard for determining probable cause.

Prince William County is about 30 miles west of Washington. Its main city is Manassas. Estimates are that the Hispanic population in Virginia today is five times larger than it was in 1996.

  2. It is gratifying to see how more and more of the local governments across American are picking up the slack where our federal government fell down on the job. There is hope that governing bodies in this country are deciding to enforce the law. Federal, you should be ashamed!

  3. The immigration sellout of this nation
    The immigration bill that the finest lawmakers money can buy, took what to them is merely a temporary setback. (They will revive it in some way – they have too – the elitist cabal that is pulling the strings of their puppets in Congress will demand it.). No matter how they phrase it, is a traitorous sellout of this nation. It is an amnesty bill to legalize fifteen to twenty million criminal illegal aliens. It will destroy the United States, and be the cause of the next civil war that will make the first look like child's play.

    ANYONE WHO VOTES FOR IT IS AS GREAT A TRAITOR AS PRESIDENT BUSH, AND THE REST OF HIS TRAITOROUS CABAL!

    WAKE UP PROUD AMERICANS, BEFORE THERE NO LONGER IS AN AMERICA TO BE PROUD OF!

    Arkansas Love Poem
    Susie Lee done fell in love,
    She planned to marry Joe.
    She was so happy 'bout it all,
    She told her Pappy so.
    Pappy told her, "Susie Gal,
    You'll have to find another.
    I'd just as soon yo' maw don't know,
    But Joe is yo' half-brother."
    So Susie put aside her Joe,
    And planned to marry Will.
    But, after telling Pappy this,
    He said, "There's trouble still.
    You cain't marry Will, my gal,
    And please don't tell yo' mother,
    But Will and Joe and several mo'
    I know is yo' half-brother."
    But Mama knew and said "My child,
    Just do what makes yo' happy.
    Marry Will or marry Joe,
    ...you ain't no kin to Pappy... :-)
