A Republican nominating convention rejected two Manassas City Council candidates yesterday who had called for strong action against illegal immigration, instead choosing a three-member slate that emphasized what the nominees called "practical" and "sensible" solutions to the city's problems.
With no Democratic opponents announced, the three Republicans are heavily favored to win election May 6.
The winners were Mark Wolfe, 50, and council incumbents Jonathan L. Way, 68, and Steven S. Smith, 54. They outpolled Dave Core, 47, and Maureen Wood, 46.
Neither the winners nor the losers put much emphasis on the immigration issue after the results were announced at the convention at Metz Middle School. But immigration figured in most of their speeches and appeared to be on the minds of many of the record 376 Republican voters who registered as delegates.

I love how the pro illegal crowd has tried to redefine their pro illegal stance as "practical" and "sensible". Do they really think they are fooling anybody???? The REAL practical and sensible thing to do would be to start taking away business licenses from those that employ illegals. Then they will have to go home on their own...and on their own dime.
