Stewart Testifies Before House GOP

Kristen Mack

Prince William County Chairman Corey A. Stewart (R-At Large) made his third appearance before members of Congress today.

This time Stewart provided testimony to Republican members of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration. The subject on tap this Sept. 11 was, "Unnecessary Crimes: The Toll of Illegal Alien Criminal on American Families."

The hearing was stacked with a sympathetic audience. Tears interrupted the emotional testimony of the victims' families.

But by the time the hearing turned to Stewart and a Houston Police Officers Union representative, the tears were substituted with applause.

"Local leadership alone cannot get the job done," Stewart said, after citing crime rate statistics and telling stories about crimes committed in Prince William.

When he spoke to the subcommittee a year ago, all its members were there. This time, only the GOP members heard what he had to say.

"I am disappointed to see that the majority party no longer considers this issue a priority," Stewart said. "Unfortunately, at the local level, we don't have the luxury to ignore it."

Awesome! Corey Stewart rocks! How hypocritical of the Dems....it only goes to show that they only care about being in power. Once there, they conveniently forget about the issues that people are passionate about.

Dems are so typical. Fllighty. Always changing their positions based on what is going to benefit them.

I still remember the Dems trying to act like they were God fearing a few years back, because they were courting religious votes. Notice now that they're in power how God is a back-story? A useless icon in their minds?

I tell you truly, you vote for them, you get morals thrown out the door.

You vote for Republicans, you get big business in bed.

Either way, it stinks. Too bad there isn't a "Moderate" party that has the middle line between the Dems and Repub's.
