Funniest thing. Two local bloggers go berserk making all sorts of charges about Prince William County becoming a sanctuary city. they obviously need to spend more time howling and less time whining and making up crap.
Those of us who have been around a while and who were involved with immigration issue remember all too well what happened. We knew it wasn’t true. Our police department has always cooperated with I.C.E.
That didn’t stop the local bloggers. One them absolutely knew better. He wanted to send the immigrants back with love. In fact, he led the charge to send them out and drive them out. (I would sure hate to see “hate”.) The other one just wanted to take a few more pokes at Melissa Peacor and Chief Hudson. There might have even been a little gouge or two directed at Corey Stewart, just to poke the bear.
That’s too bad. The immigration resolution of July 2007 was one of the ugliest times in the history of Prince William County. It was formed on hate and intolerance rather than on solution seeking. One of those bloggers was directly responsible for creating and allowing much of that hate to go on. The other blogger didn’t exist in 2007 but he was sure happy enough to pile on over misinformation, as long as he could do some character assassination of some of his least favorite people.
All of the local blogger accusations were false. Chairman Stewart called for an audit of the process the Prince William County Police Department goes through when dealing with illegal immigrants.
Yesterday that audit report was presented. The result was that our police department is 100% in compliance with ICE regulations.
Perhaps we need to present the bill for these services as well as the man-hours spent to the local bloggers who stirred up such an unsubstantiated stink of rumors. Both the bloggers would be the first to decry the reporting of “main stream media” yet they fell for obvious erroneous reporting hook, line and sinker.
To read the report, click the word “ice” in blue.
Meanwhile, if I had made false accusations, I would at least run a post on my blog and apologize for the inaccuracies. What do we see? Nothing. What do we hear? Crickets…..
Prince William County is doing just what it should be doing.
[UPDATE: There has been one mild correction on one blog–certainly not the full apology that making such dastardly accusations should involve. Shame! Shame! Shame! You just don’t try to ruin people’s lives and then say ‘Ooops I did it again.’
