More hate from Virginia

Prince William News Messenger

Corey Stewart, not content to let the spotlight shine only on leaders in another state, is now pushing a law in Virginia similar to illegal immigration legislation in Arizona.

Virginia’s version would, among other things, “Make it a violation of Virginia law to fail to complete alien registration documents,” according to Stewart’s website: http://www.coreystewart.com/ruleoflaw. Police officers would be required to check “in any lawful contact, the legal presence of an individual, when practicable.” Go to Stewart’s website to see all aspects of the proposed law.

What Stewart wants is a world where everyone who speaks with a foreign accent, especially a Spanish accent, has to always carry their birth certificate and always walk in fear. That is his goal plain and simple.

The anti-immigrant hate campaign has already exasperated the real estate crash in Prince William. Why would a foreign born person buy property in Prince William when neighboring Fairfax County has an explicitly welcoming policy towards immigrants? And why would anyone with foreign born friends want to live in a place where you would be afraid that if you invited your foreign born friends over for dinner, that they might be subjected to harassment? Of course those sort of people vote Democratic, so why would Stewart want them in the county? His actions may have horrible consequences for residents of Prince William county, but since when did Republicans care about human suffering?
