Va. county: Tough laws repelling illegals

There are 21 comments on the washingtontimes.com story from Mar 12, 2008, titled Va. county: Tough laws repelling illegals. In it, washingtontimes.com reports that:

Months after Prince William County began one of the country's strongest crackdowns on illegal immigrants, some officials and residents say illegals and other residents appear to be leaving.

Dave Whitlow, town manager of Dumfries, said officials started noticing the change a few months ago when they canvassed communities popular among Hispanic families and found roughly 165 residences vacant among 1,600 houses and townhouses.

"We are having many more leaving," Mr. Whitlow said. "It's been just the last few months."

In July, the Board of County Supervisors unanimously agreed to have the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency train six police officers and one resident for an Alien Crime Unit.

I am SO moving there! Maybe my kids will finally be in a school where they don't have to twiddle their thumbs while the teachers spend an inordinate amount of time explaining simple words and concepts to the little anchors. Maybe I can go to Home Depot for Weedeater line and not have to get through the horde of day laborers. Signs in English...heaven. Virginia is looking better every day!

Does that mean we can pull our tax money that pays for school? Didn't think so.

Why should we have to pay more to send our kids to private school. We already pay property taxes which pays for the public schools. Who are you to tell someone to send their kids to private schools when they already pay for their kid's education. The education system isn't meant for a bunch of free loaders taking advantage of other people's money.

"Treat others the way you want to be treated". Eat your words. If I treated them the way they treat me, I'd be stealing the cash out of their pockets.

Good morning HoneyC.It is the same way in Dalton Georgia with the schools my grandchildren are overran with the illegals anchors, and it takes away from their quality of education because they will send their children to school and most dont bother to teach them a word of English.

And I love your answer too! Well stated! The free ride is about over even if it is one state at a time.

Damn, Henry. Maybe I should take some of that spare change I have laying around and send YOU to school. Then maybe you, too, would have the ability to put together a proper sentence and be able to spell it correctly. All at the same time, too! As much as I pay in property taxes, why on earth should I have to take MY kids out and move them while I continue to be leeched off of for illegal kids?

This is excellent news to say the least. The pro-enforcement and anti-ILLEGAL alien groups have been saying it for years: Attrition through enforcement works.

Keep up the good work Prince William County!

Go Prince William County, Virginia!

A place where they FINALLY had the decency to IGNORE "political correctness" and use simple enforcable AMERICAN law to drive the illegal aliens out of their county.

I agree with Henry. This is how you would like to treat blacks too! Sick people who say they aren't racist. Soon you will have Hispanic and black grandchildren. Put a GPS on your daughter.

Don't hold your breath. Those that feel as we do are demonized. And with a bad economy, guess what's going to get first attention.

Nice idea, friend but in this economy, you are DANGED lucky indeed to send your kids to private school. Many folks are just squeaking by. I'D recommend home schooling.

Oh, and by the way, I DON'T think your post will get a lot of sympathy from folks who have LOST jobs, or been hit by foreigners in a car without a license. You want to be treated like a human, act like one instead of prissy, pampered, arrogant royalty.

Yeah unfortunately that IS the pathetic thing most taxpaying CITIZENS hate but have no control over: not only do they have to pay separate tuition, etc. to send their kids to private schools to get a proper education (or purchase the materials for home) but they have to pay the taxes that support these LOUSY schools they consider anathema.

By some of these caring CITIZENS public schools are deemed "indoctrination centers".

Amen to that. Only, you got the wrong person. It's the government that steals the money, to give to the schools to support the newcomers. It's a chain.

You know the ones I feel sorry for in this area? The kids on both ends. THEY are the end of the chain, the bottom of the heep and the most vulnerable.

On one end,their stupid parents come here, hell or high water, hoping to "find a better life" without bothering to consider the consequences and in protests use their own kids as human shields against opposition. You'd think they'd be humble and thankful; but no--guess it's not in their make up.

Meanwhile the poor children are stuck in the middle of two warring adult groups and they grow up with people looking down their noses at them. Ever wonder what that'll produce once they grow up?

I submit to BOTH the stupid adult groups that it is the KIDS who will untimately work this out on their own. While the stupid adults are busy fighting it out instead of working it out and having co operation on BOTH ends (HEAR THAT YOU WHO CAME HERE LIKE THIS) the kids will go on learning what they can, playing together and holding each other's hands because that is what friends do.

"Suffer the little children to come to me and do not forbid them. For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Jesus in speaking to his disciples who had better things to do than deal with kids.

Man you really need to get more of an education instead of sitting there just looking at the news. Your attitude is a little sick.
