Talk about beating around the bush, They know this bill is to eliminate immigrants, who else live this way. Hell they (immigrants) probably built the homes of all those board of supervisors, now they want them out. PITIFUL,PITIFUL

Pitiful nothing, if they are overcrowding like that, that's a safety hazard and it also makes the area look bad.

Besides didn't you hear? The illegals are making their way up North toward O'Malley Land.

Hey Stafford Cty nip it in the bud now or you will end up like Fairfax and Prince William Cty! Fairfax wouldn't admit it but check the news, the crime rate has gone up many of the neighborhoods look terrible trash everywhere cars piled up you can't even park on your own street heck, we are even seeing "pandering" in middle class neighborhoods. There is nothing wrong with protecting your community and keeping it clean we work hard for our property and to keep our towns and cities safe. Is it the people who have lived here for years and years I know I am not stupid!

Take a look a PG County MD, there are more illegals in one house than there used to be people living on the entire road! But PG County won't do anything about it, they let them park their cars in the yard because they have used up all the street parking..such trash and disrespect for the original owners of the neighborhood. You call the county and they just ignore the problem because they don't have to live next door to them. I think we should take all the politican's, county workers and let them live there for a week and see how they like this behavior! Something would be done then!

NBC4 reported a few months ago about a house in VA (cannot recall which suburban DC county) where 75 people were living in one house (4 bedroom, 3 bath). Aside from sanitary concerns within the house, the sheer magnitude of people there forced them to block off exit doors so that they could all live there. God forbid there would be a fire!

Just a different slant than my usual anti-illegal thought process.

Become legal and we as Americans are willing to give you a hand to find proper and safe housing.

I agree something needs to be done, but unfortunately, a blanket restriction such as this would penalize hard-working young people (U.S. citizens) who can't afford to rent alone and must have roommates, especially in this area. 3 sounds a bit restrictive IMO. They'll have to move back home thanks to the illegals who are ruining it for everyone! I also think that if there are complaints and/or reasonable suspicion, the police and/or INS should be able to check the immigration status of everyone living in the home and throw the illegals out!

Chickens coming home to roost...

America invited this sickness because it wanted cheap labor and now the "lawmakers" are pissed that the cancer has gotten out of control. So sad...

I live in PG County and the house next to me had 13 people when I moved in. The house on the other side had 4, but now has 6. Both of them are 3 bedroom single family homes with 1 bathroom. You are right that the county doesn't care. Especially Will Campos and Victor Ramirez.
They are both Salvadoran immigrants and will protect their own before they protect the rights of legal tax paying American citizens. Vote them out of office!

Who cares if the unwritten reason behind proposing this measure is to control illegals? As long as it controls the illegals and pushes them away then what is the problem. The are freakin illegal and it's a cheaper resolution than what PW county implemented (which I fully support). Why are people who are not illegal or related to an illegal upset about cities, counties, states, ect doing what needs to be done to take back our country?

My Bad. That's what I mean't to say. Thanks Kalley.

If all the counties got together and implemented policy like Prince William County did I would garantee you they all head North to O'Malley Land.

That goes to show that Plain Ghetto County is messed up. They put in Salvadorian Immigrants into OFFICE??? You guys seriously need to VOTE THEM OUT!! So that's why PG County is illegal friendly. I guess it's elswhere in MD though. O'Malley loves the illegals. Wulfie, I feel your pain fried.

Thanks Mark, I'll take the sympathy :-)

Victor Ramirez and Will Campos(city council) are both involved with trying to make Mt Ranier a Sanctuary City. I was at the meeting and saw them there, all smiles for Univision. Ramirez is also the sponsor of a bill trying to give the children of illegals in state tuition at Md colleges.

As far as I am concerned they are both traitors. As citizens, lawyers and lawmakers they took oaths of allegiance to the United States of America, not Central America.

Last year Will Campos was interviewed in the Journal. He said he couldn't afford a house in his own district. There are affordable homes in his district, but I guess he doesn't want to live in Langley Park or Hyattsville with the fruits of his labor.

This is the types of thing that kill house values; and that is where Stafford County gets a good percentage of their tax revenue. Just look at Fairfax County, in the older neighborhoods there are a dozen or more cars in the street driveway and front yards. There is even one home in Springfield where the people paved the complete front yard and are using it as a parking lot, great for house values. Good move for Stafford.

The county already have ordinances to muffle noise pollution, address public safety, and overcrowding. How about enforcing those laws? Do you really want the county to decide who you can and cannot have living in your own home? Even communist countries like China and Vietnam don't tell you who you can share a house with! It is sad that many Americans now choose property value over personal freedom!

It's not necessarily the property value people are choosing here. It's a cheaper solution to fighting illegal immigration than what Prince William county implemented. Yes it's sad that has to be done this way and the federal government refuses to do their job, but you have to do what you have to do when it comes to fighting the illegal immigration problem.

You probably don't have homes in your neighborhood where 5 to 10 non-functioning vehicles are parked in the driveway. Or, 5 to 10 service-type vehicles are parked there and there is litter all over the yard and broken mini-blind hanging in the windows. I'm describing the suburban Stafford County "Single Family Home" neighborhood where I live and purchased my home for a fairly large sum. Living situations like I have described do not just effect property values - they also breed crime. Having two small children, I do not want to have to worry about the level of crime in the neighborhood we live in that is driven, in part, by the situation Stafford county is attempting to address.
