Pr. William chairman to talk immigration on MTV Networks

Prince William County Board Chairman Corey A. Stewart has returned from a quick trip to New York City, where he participated in a panel discussion that MTV Networks plans to incorporate in an upcoming showing of a documentary that captures the county's illegal-immigration fight, he said.

MTV is scheduled to air "9500 Liberty" on Sept. 26, Stewart said. Produced by Eric Byler and Annabel Park, the documentary captures the illegal-immigration clash that consumed county officials and residents a few years ago. The documentary shows the emotions surrounding the immigration policy and the aftermath of the legislation, which officials adopted in 2007 and modified in 2008 to remove language that some feared would lead to racial profiling.

The discussion in which Stewart participated was moderated by Fernanda Santos of the New York Times and included panelists John Quinones of ABC News, Maria Kumar from Voto Latino, comedian Paul Rodriguez, Chuck Wexler with the Police Executive Research Forum and filmmaker Park.

Stewart, who led the immigration battle in Prince William, is urging Virginia to follow Arizona's lead by passing statewide legislation that would crack down on illegal immigrants. Dubbed the Virginia Rule of Law campaign, the bill would enhance police officials' power to capture, detain and deport illegal immigrants; curb illegal day laboring; and create state penalties for illegal immigrants.

Comments

NumbersUSA states: All 50 “Deserters” on this list:

* Received grades of F-minus and 0%, failing to take a single action to reduce competition for jobless Americans.
* They are asking voters to re-elect them to Congress this November
* They are in the Senate or in the House where they are leaders with special opportunity to influence policy toward jobless Americans because they either are congressional chairmen, leaders of their Party or on the Judiciary Committee with direct jurisdiction over immigration.
*
* GO AND SEE THIS BLACK LISTING FOR YOURSELF

The whole harangue began with the suing of Arizona’s Governor Brewer, State Senator Russell Pierce’s administration, as a jackboot example to other states that only the feds have jurisdiction over immigration? Then if so—why haven’t they built the real double border fence, mandated E-Verify, give every policeman training in 287 (G) law? Why have no employers who hire illegal labor, gone to prison? Why have neither political party enforced the 1986 law, after all the late Ted Kennedy did promise voters—no more amnesties of any kind. While right under our noses ICE has orders to release non-criminal illegal aliens? In a small town in Pennsylvania, another in Nebraska and yet another in Texas that have been inundated with neighborhoods full of illegal aliens, if not the feds then the ACLU is prosecuting Mayors for protecting their population? ICE Chief John Morton might be suing Fremont, Nebraska, Hazleton, PA, Farmers Branch Texas, but the American people are not apologetic as they send millions of dollars in donations for the upcoming fights in court.

We do not need any more Democrats or even Republicans who voted against America labor. Our economy has been hijacked by illegal labor, which is costing jobs, lowering wages and unfettered welfare in hundreds of billions in real dollars. We, the taxpayer are the benefactors as both political parties over the last thirty years, who have deceived us into paying even more taxes towards the destitute of other nations. Employers have walked away without responsibility, not paying for the health care, education or any of the hundreds of programs offering cash payments to illegal alien families. Now it’s time for the individual to say enough of these lies spawned by the Liberal progressive press, the special interest lobby, the open border organizations and unite against these incumbent politicians with the jobless lines in November. If we don't separate the bad apple from the barrel, the illegal immigration nightmare will never end. Bombard lawmakers with your anger and frustration in Washington at 202-224-3121 With Millions of members and growing NumbersUSA is the site to learn about the deceit and lies spilling from the mouths of the worst offenders to Americas Democracy.

SHOW THEM THE DOOR IN NOVEMBER

Democrat Senator Michael Bennett of Colorado has probably one of the worst immigration records in Washington, other than Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). He is carrying an (F minus) for his terrible voting record and like all those who cater to the illegal alien occupation of our country, must be thrown out of office in November. As an incumbent he has displayed no fealty to the American worker, but amplified his commitment to approving a whole range of benefits for foreign nationals. According to his voting record as credited by NumbersUSA . Bennett's actions speak for themselves as revealed here. Reduce Chain Migration (Failed to Act). Reduce Illegal Jobs & Presence (F-) Reduce Visa Lottery (Failed to Act) Reduce Illegal Immigration at Borders (F-). Reduce Unnecessary Worker Visas (F-) Reduce Amnesty Enticements (F-) Reduce Refugee and Asylum Fraud (Failed to Act) Reduce Illegal Immigration Rewards (F-) Reduce Anchor Baby Citizenship (Failed to Act) His dismal record demands action, and he should be parted from his job at the earliest.
