I stand up an applaud Prince William County for taking this stand. My family moved out of Manassas and PC because of the immigration problem and I know other who have done the same. To MW/OB people, what part of "illegal" do you not understand?? The illegal (you said "undocumented") immigrants abuse the loophole that allows children born in the US to illegal immigrants to be US citizens and then whine when the law is enforced and families are separated. They should consider that this will happen BEFORE they have kids in the US and use them as their ticket to stay here. Agreed, it is a sad situation, but it also very sad for the legal and resident people of the US to have to suffer reduced services and lifestyle at the cost of pandering to "illegals."

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The ILLEGAL immigrants need to stop whining. It is really starting to piss me off. I'm positive if I commit a crime, no one is going to give a damn about seperating me from my kids. Take your kids with you when you are deported. No one said you have to leave them here.

deportees should take there children with them. If not, the child welfare system will be providing for them and that creates bigger budgets for the system...money it seems counties just don't have.

I fully agree, the Illegals need to take their kids with them. The children are citizens and they can come back when they become of age. Our child welfare system shouldn't have to bear this cost just because the Illegals want their children to grow up in the States.

Nancy Lydall, your a illegal supporter up the @$$. Your group all they know how to say its racism. This law effects ALL ILLEGALS not just Latinos. Why can't you and those ILLEGAL LATINOS get it through your thick skull? Maybe the reason these people fear is because they are ILLEGAL, and you do know that there is FEDERAL LAW that basically says those who aid illegals will be prosecuted also and be FINE. So pick your words carefully because your next be on trial.

I say if Mexicans Without Borders along with the ACLU chooses to sue PWC, then PWC should counter-sue claiming that Mexicans Without Borders is in violation of Federal Law.

For all our good hearted fellow citizens, here you have some thoughts on “the Prince William melee”:
1. PW policies will not resolve the federal failure to properly address this problem.
2. Waste of time and money for a “try to see if it works….”
3. Criminals now will have more time to do their “work” while cops are busy trying to determine if “Jose” is illegal… hehehehehe…
4. Back to 1960’s “racial profiling”. If you are “brown” or “speak with an accent” beware of Prince William County (Manassas, Potomac Mills, etc).
5. Back to a “Gestapo like, way of life”, but sadly is not 1940 and this is not “Deutschland”(Germany niños).
6. PW you better be prepared for a deluge of “abandoned houses” because when the housing boom was in high peak, you didn’t discriminate to approve the “illegal mortgages”, I guess you don’t like this one, do you? Hehehehehe…
7. Prince William now may supplement their “lack of municipal taxes” with “legal immigration”, but let’s see how many people would like to “move in” after these “if you are not white or red neck policies” are enforced.
8. Did you know that for every dollar sent abroad by the “illegal”,$0.70 cents come right back in? How? in the form of stuff we sell the “third world countries”, how? GE’s, John Deere’s, Ford’s, GMC’s, Exxon, Shell, Calling Cards, Verizon and Sprint’s Oversees cellular international calls from the countries they come from… you name it gentlemen…
10. Then from what is left, we have VISA, MASTERCARD, HSBC (HOUSEHOLD), CAPITAL ONE and others, with 10,000 branches in their countrys, lending predatory money to the "3rd World illegals". I guess we have to make up for what they get here and, it's just called: CAPITALISM...! Hurt?...
9. Of course they keep some $ for their bellies and necessities, but, later on we nab them when they go to the movies to watch “Hanna Montana”,“Pirates of the Caribbean”,“Spider man”,“Star Wars”, etc.
10. I tell you, but for someone that had traveled, this “small smurf countries” are “branches of our economy”, the money travels and re-cycles back to us. You don’t believe it? Time to travel then…
11. It’s rather sad that our Federal Government has not tried to fix this problem but engages in partisan politics trying to get elected to perpetuate their way of life:“let the little guys fight for a cracker, when we get to cut and keep the whole pizza”.
12. Bravo for Prince Williams conservative and liberal (democrats and republicans) politicians that trying to do something (or appearing to do so) decided to go back in history 50 years. May be they are creating a small paradise island that will model the next “police/show me your papers/get our of here/I hate brown/Gestapo like” state.
13. Dear prudents, it failed since the inception of our great country, it failed in the time of Lincoln dividing the country, it failed in the times of Roosevelt and Truman, and now, it will fail again in Prince Williams.
14. This is the “Melting Pot”,“America the Free”, and the Law should be enforced, but not going back to the failed policies of the past. It didn't work then, it won't today. Good try though.

I take my hat off to PWC and applaud them. I can only hope that the neighboring counties follow suit.

Prince Wm already has a huge supply of abandoned homes so George Who can rest assured that it already has happened. Meanwhile, taxpayers like myself had to move out of the county to make sure my kids could get a decent education and feel safe in their own neighborhood.

For all our good hearted fellow citizens, here you have some thoughts on “the Prince William melee”:
1. PW policies will not resolve the federal failure to properly address this problem.

It will address the problem in PWC.

2. Waste of time and money for a “try to see if it works….”

Got to try something. Our county is bieng destroyed.

3. Criminals now will have more time to do their “work” while cops are busy trying to determine if “Jose” is illegal… hehehehehe…

"Jose" is useally the criminal anyway.

4. Back to 1960’s “racial profiling”. If you are “brown” or “speak with an accent” beware of Prince William County (Manassas, Potomac Mills, etc).

No, if you are commiting a crime, beware of PWC.

5. Back to a “Gestapo like, way of life”, but sadly is not 1940 and this is not “Deutschland”(Germany niños).

No check points. Just cops doing there job.

6. PW you better be prepared for a deluge of “abandoned houses” because when the housing boom was in high peak, you didn’t discriminate to approve the “illegal mortgages”, I guess you don’t like this one, do you? Hehehehehe…

Yeah, right. What a misinformed statement.

7. Prince William now may supplement their “lack of municipal taxes” with “legal immigration”, but let’s see how many people would like to “move in” after these “if you are not white or red neck policies” are enforced.

Tons of people who will be fleeing Fairfax and neighboring comunities where the Hispanics are fleeing.

8. Did you know that for every dollar sent abroad by the “illegal”,$0.70 cents come right back in? How? in the form of stuff we sell the “third world countries”, how? GE’s, John Deere’s, Ford’s, GMC’s, Exxon, Shell, Calling Cards, Verizon and Sprint’s Oversees cellular international calls from the countries they come from… you name it gentlemen…

Bullshit.

10. Then from what is left, we have VISA, MASTERCARD, HSBC (HOUSEHOLD), CAPITAL ONE and others, with 10,000 branches in their countrys, lending predatory money to the "3rd World illegals". I guess we have to make up for what they get here and, it's just called: CAPITALISM...! Hurt?...

Which supports why we must deport illegals.

9. Of course they keep some $ for their bellies and necessities, but, later on we nab them when they go to the movies to watch “Hanna Montana”,“Pirates of the Caribbean”,“Spider man”,“Star Wars”, etc.

What?

10. I tell you, but for someone that had traveled, this “small smurf countries” are “branches of our economy”, the money travels and re-cycles back to us. You don’t believe it? Time to travel then…

Again, Bullshit.

11. It’s rather sad that our Federal Government has not tried to fix this problem but engages in partisan politics trying to get elected to perpetuate their way of life:“let the little guys fight for a cracker, when we get to cut and keep the whole pizza”.

Yep. It is sad.

12. Bravo for Prince Williams conservative and liberal (democrats and republicans) politicians that trying to do something (or appearing to do so) decided to go back in history 50 years. May be they are creating a small paradise island that will model the next “police/show me your papers/get our of here/I hate brown/Gestapo like” state.

I hope so.

13. Dear prudents, it failed since the inception of our great country, it failed in the time of Lincoln dividing the country, it failed in the times of Roosevelt and Truman, and now, it will fail again in Prince Williams.

Duh.

14. This is the “Melting Pot”,“America the Free”, and the Law should be enforced, but not going back to the failed policies of the past. It didn't work then, it won't today. Good try though.

It ain't over yet, ahole.

On what authority would you deport a legal US Citizen? I'm asking because it's an issue and should be addressed. Another reason this is a knee jerk reaction to the situation and was not property thought out by PWC. Most of the "undocumented" people are now working and statistics show that they are paying taxes to the system to pay for these children to be in schools. Now with deportation you have the child's right to stay but no tax money paying for them.

The bill gets higher and higher. Assimilation with amnisty in the form or legal residency (not citizenship) would be a much better (and cheaper) option.

Although I have sympathy for the children of illegal immigrants, I do not feel they should be allowed any American status when they become of age. That is like saying someone is the child of drug dealers and, we will punish the parents BUT when the children reach legal age they can inherit the parents drug business. GET WITH THE AGENDA FOLKS! You break the law everyone pays for the issue, even the children of illegals who have been deported back to their homeland.
