Great post. great news, Alanboy!

Obviously, LOGIC and COMMON SENSE are slowly seeping into the thinking of some of our leaders.

Prince William County voted for the illegal immigration program, and that is what they get.

But, aren't you worried about how they are funding it?

washingtonpost.com

Prince William County basically used it's entire Rainy Day Fund to start up their program ($800,000), with only just a measly $3,000 left.

Rainy Day Funds are usually used for revenue shortfalls, and the county is already down $51 million.

Maybe using the Rainy Day Funds would be more plausible if this was 2004, and revenues were exceeding expectations.

But, now in 2008 with the housing slump (especially in Prince William County), and economic slowdown (possible recession looming)?

It just seems like a recipe for disaster.

Hey; Sheriff Joe, time for you to start up a Tent City outside of DC or maybe smack dab in the middle of Anacostia

Have PW County (and every other metro DC county) ship their miscreants there.

Then PW would have the $$$ to kick out the illegals.

I'm sorry, I may be a little slow on this one.

How would shipping illegals to a location nearby create more money for PW County?

PW would not have to pay for their upkeep.
