Corey Stewart Pushes for Clone of Arizona Immigration Law

Corey Stewart apparently wants our help hunting down illegal aliens. He must be jealous that Arizona is getting more attention than he is. His new initiative, The Rule of Law Campaign, is plastered all over his website and his Facebook page. Too bad it contains lies and could possibly get Virginia sued.


The Rule of Law Campaign Submitted by Corey on Wed, 06/16/2010 – 12:02.

Prince William County’s crackdown on illegal immigration worked: Illegal Aliens fled the county, and the violent crime rate plummeted. It is now time to protect all communities in Virginia from the effects of Illegal Immigration. Please join me in our effort to protect every county and city in Commonwealth by following Prince William County’s and Arizona’s lead and enforce the Rule of Law.

Please join the petition below if you would like your state and local elected officials to support The Virginia Rule of Law Act, which would do the following:

•Enhance Police Powers to Capture, Detain, and help Deport Criminal Aliens
◦Direct Virginia law enforcement officials to ascertain, in any lawful contact, the legal presence of an individual, when practicable.
◦Direct Virginia jails to release criminal aliens to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after serving their sentence.
◦Allow law enforcement officials to arrest illegals without warrant if they have reasonable suspicion that the arrest would make them removable from the United States.
•Virginia Criminal Penalties for Illegal Aliens
◦Make it a violation of Virginia law to fail to complete alien registration documents.
◦Impose harsh penalties for terrorists and illegals caught with illegal drugs and deadly weapons.
•Outlaw Sanctuary Policies
◦Prohibit cities and counties from preventing law enforcement officials from inquiring about legal presence or preventing them from sharing information with ICE.
•Outlaw Illegal Day Laboring and Public Roadside Solicitation
◦Allow law enforcement officials to break up day laboring operations.
◦Prohibit solicitation along all public roads, crippling illegal day labor sites.
•Crackdown on Human Smuggling
◦Prohibit smuggling and human trafficking, especially for sexual slavery.

There’s that darn probable cause that Corey tried to push through Prince William County. Let’s see, how would that work exactly?

I am sure that there are people out there who will be rah rah-ing and cheering Corey on. Election time is a little less than a year and a half off and he is getting a head start on it this year. Make no mistake. We have seen it all before.

Stewart would have those not living around  here believe that he single handedly ran off all the ‘illegals.’ Not even. Check with your schools and look at those designated as Hispanic. Not about Hispanics? Don’t even pretend that isn’t what it is all about.

Our violent crime rate plummeted? Not even close. Murders actually went up.

The 2009 UVA survey sheds some light on the topic in the Washington Post.   Note the date: 9/27/09

Over-all citizen approval of how things operate in Prince William has improved from 2007.

“I’m very pleased with the results,” Police Chief Charlie T. Deane said. “I suspect some of the improved perception of what we are doing has had to do with people seeing the reality versus the rhetoric. We try to be fair, lawful and responsible. . . . I’m proud our officers are being received in a better light than when this was initially started.”

Guterbock said the police department’s community outreach on the immigration policy might have helped drive the numbers back up. Another possibility, he said, is that people who were highly dissatisfied have left the county.

The illegal immigration policy could have also affected residents’ trust in government,

which dipped to 58.4 percent last year but rebounded to about 63 percent this year.


Additionally, the PWC Crime Report disputes Stewart’s falsehoods. There was a decrease in domestic violence incidents from 2007 to 2008. (1358 in 2007 and 1256 in 2008)  That is hardly a plummeting violent crime rate. 

Don’t take my word or Corey’s word for the Crime Statistics. Download the Police Department Report 2008 for yourself.      PWC Police Report 2008    Begin about page 19.  Pages 31-32 give specifics for illegal immigrants.

Rule of Law begins at home.  We cannot break the law to enforce Corey’ Rule of Law.

We will continue to monitor the Chairman’s trumpeting of his new plan.  Stewart isn’t going to be able to use immigration twice in the same lifetime to catapult himself into an elected position he wants.

Cop Punches Girl in Seattle

This video has gone viral all over the internet.  There are definitely 2 sides to this story. The girls appear out of control.

The minute you put your hands on a police officer it is considered an assault. 

Did the officer over-react?  Different people will have different opinions.  I would have gone in to ‘don’t taze me bro’ mode real fast.

After foreclosure, things might just get worse

Sometimes people just allow a foreclosure to happen when they have exhausted all resources. Huge loans and reset mortgages have often led to foreclosures nationwide. Prince William County was one of the hardest hit areas in Virginia. Now the Washington Post tells us more bad news:

After the bank foreclosed on Fernando Palacios’s Gainesville home in March, he thought he was done with what he described as the most stressful financial situation of his life.

The bank sold the home for far less than Palacios owed on it, as often happens with foreclosures. What Palacios did not see coming was the letter from his lender demanding that he pay the shortfall: $148,064.02. “I really thought I was through with this house,” said Palacios, who fell behind on payments when the economy soured and his cleaning business stumbled.

Over the past year, lenders have become much more aggressive in trying to recoup money lost in foreclosures and other distressed sales, creating more grief for people who thought their real estate headaches were far behind.

In many localities — including Virginia, Maryland and the District — lenders have the right to pursue borrowers whose homes have sold at a loss to collect the difference between what the property sold for and what the borrower owed on it, also called a deficiency.

Before the housing bust, when the volume of foreclosures was relatively low, lenders seldom bothered to chase after deficiencies because borrowers had few remaining assets to claim and doing so involved hassles and costs. But with foreclosures soaring, lenders are more determined to get their money back, especially if they suspect borrowers are skipping out on loan they could afford, an increasingly common practice in areas where home values have tanked.

Palacios said he was committed to staying in his house, which he bought in 2005. He sunk $20,000 into improving it and hoped to raise his children there. But his lender refused to modify his loan, he said. To avoid personal liability for the deficiency, Palacios is filing for bankruptcy protection, as many people do who are in similar situations, said Nancy Ryan, his bankruptcy attorney.

It makes sense that if people could afford to pay their mortgage, they just would. Isn’t this practice going to greatly increase the number of bankruptcies in the area? That hurts all the other creditors.

French Retirement Age Pushed Back

Frenchies can no longer retire at age 60. They must now wait until age 62. What are Americans doing wrong? We are now being told we have to wait until 66 or 67 to receive our social security. Supposedly the early retirement is seen as a right and left issue.

According to the Washington Post:

Today is a day of sadness and anger,” agreed Jean-Luc Melanchon, who heads the Left Party. “The end of retirement at 60 is the end of a world.”

Seeking to soften the blow, Woerth also announced a 1 percent jump in the tax rate for France’s highest incomes and said taxes will also rise on capital gains from investments. This will provide more than $4 billion by the time the new retirement schedules are completed, he predicted.

The plan, which is likely to pass easily in a parliament controlled by Sarkozy’s coalition, called for the legal retirement age to rise by four months each year, beginning in July 2011, until it reaches 62 by 2018. At that point, the ministry calculated, the pension fund should be balanced.

Those who begin working before age 18 or who hold down particularly taxing jobs will still be able to retire earlier than age 62, the plan stipulated. Nonetheless, French labor unions have announced they will fight the changes, scheduling street protests to coincide with a debate in parliament in September

Other countries are also pushing up their age for retirement:

Faced with the same economic pressures, for instance, Germany has announced plans to lift the retirement age from 65 to 67. Britain and Italy, home to Western Europe’s other two leading economies, have settled on 65. In comparison, officials pointed out, France will still have one of the earliest retirement ages in the industrialized world.

If retirement at 60 is socialism…….

Hopefully, Formerly Anonymous will enlighten us. He usually knows all about things that are going on in the EEC.
