Manassas to Check Arrestees' Immigration Status - washingtonpost.com

It's nice to see that some reasonable politicians in an illegal immigrant-infested city are taking action. Though the policy won't take effect until December 1, it's certainly better than nothing. Maybe when the crime rate starts plummeting other cities and states may take notice.

You know what I read in that article? I read that the more tax money the Illegals eat up the fewer officers they can devote to stopping the invasion. They had trained officers but had to drop the position for lack of funding. What a win win for the Illegal Aliens.

I also read that but perhaps the politicians have finally decided to stand up for themselves and actually enforce the deportation of arrested illegals. It's pretty sad to read that the deportations policy won't occur until December 1 but there's still some hope.

December 1st is less than one month away.............maybe the delay is due to getting the 'nuts and bolts' (prison beds, etc) in order prior to implementation.

A deepening recession helping to 'nudge' the authorities to step up enforcement as well.

So far they are holding their own. But I would love to see the ACLU get slapped down hard.
