The reason? A rapid demographic transformation. Due to decades of liberal intransigence towards unchecked immigration and de facto sanctuary city policies, Fairfax leadership of today has been caught flat-footed and left with very little means for tackling the social and financial problems that come with the suburbanization of poverty due to immigration.

Don't believe me?

Quote:
The kindergartners of the Class of 2026, who finished their first year in Fairfax County schools Wednesday, constitute the largest and one of the most ethnically, culturally and socioeconomically diverse groups of students the county has seen, a fact that school system administrators say could pose significant challenges in the decade to come.

Long an enclave of predominantly white, middle-class families with a top-class school system, Fairfax has experienced a dramatic demographic shift in recent years that is nowhere more obvious than in the county’s kindergarten classrooms. The white student population is receding and is being replaced with fast-growing numbers of poor students and children of immigrants for whom English is a second language.

More than one-third of the 13,424 kindergartners in the county this year qualified for free or reduced-price meals, a federal measure of poverty, and close to 40 percent of the Class of 2026 requires additional English instruction, among the most ever for a Fairfax kindergarten class.
In Fairfax County kindergarten classes, school system

If these numbers represent a trend, and by most accounts they do in fact represent a trend, then Fairfax County has seen its peak. Liberal tax and spend policies can only get you so far.

So don't forget to pay your taxes, Fairfax folks! These new, poverty stricken legal and illegal immigrants are depending on you!

...with the 3rd highest median household income in the country. I think we'll be OK.

Speaking of apathy. Congratulations. You've just made my point.

But let's address the ridiculousness of your statement: How can you possibly use this as your logical defense when an increase in the poverty population will undoubtedly erode this "highest median household income" statistic?

I hope you're more intelligent than this post allows.

I'll take apathy over unnecessary alarmism any day. It's better for the blood pressure.

So unnecessary that the leftist Washington Post decided to report on it. Front page. Sunday edition.

Yeah. WashPo is misguided. No need to worry. Everything in Fairfax is rainbows and skittle s****ing unicorns.

Again, you make my point precisely.

Why am I not surprised that instead of making an argument and defending it, you resort to personal attacks? Can't you at least keep your hysteria where it belongs, where other chicken littles with their heads stuck somewhere will confirm your pathetic outlook on the world around you.

Personal attack? None to be found on this thread. You're lost.

OP,

Are you willing to do all the menial jobs and dirty work that "diverse"/immigrant folks do?

Or are other non-diverse/U.S citizen folk willing to do those jobs?

If not, shut the f*** up and keep it moving

People like the OP sure like to whine about things they claim are a result of liberal policies while they offer no solution or alternative of their own. Basically they haven't the intelligence to come up with their own ideas and are content to ***** and moan which is a pretty pathetic way to spend the last few decades of your life.
