Prince William OKs illegals crackdownHere's to Corey Stewart. While there are many in his neighborhood who are willing to countenance lawlessness, he steps up in support of order and the common good. He's doing this under tremendous pressure (being applied by those who never come near a Mexican until they're handing one a ten dollar bill for the lawn mowing service).

Prince William County passed one of the most aggressive crackdowns on illegal aliens in the country after an emotional 12-hour meeting that ended early yesterday morning.
"We are dealing with a problem that has been undermining the quality of life in the county, period," said Corey A. Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. "There is nothing more to it."
At about 2:30 a.m. yesterday, the eight-member board unanimously approved restrictions on county services and appropriated $325,000 to hire seven persons for a new Criminal Alien Unit. Some of the money will also be used to train police officers on when probable cause exists to check immigration status. (link)
Let's hope there are more supervisors in more Virginia counties who are willing to come out four-square in support of law and order.
The liberal do-gooders (see definition above) at the Washington Post howl in protest this morning, resorting to outlandish claims that legal immigrants will be harmed by the actions of those who intend to enforce the law. Let them howl.
