Evidently, the City of Alexandria, Virginia wants to shell out taxpayer dollars to illegals. I understand that our first settlers came to Virginia and the founding fathers made their homes there and promoted an escape from unfriendly regimes in favor of religious freedom, the pursuit of happiness, etc., but I highly doubt this is what they meant.
The city of Alexandria, Va., is expected to pass a resolution tonight renewing its commitment to extend public services to illegal aliens.The catch is they won't really be complying with the immigration laws, they'll be avoiding the discussion of what to do about illegal immigrants abusing the system. They'll be handing out freebies to those that have lied, cheated, and stolen their way into this country.
"We are reaffirming and recommitting our services and outreach to international citizens," Mayor William D. Euille, a Democrat, said yesterday.
The seven-member City Council will vote on a two-page resolution that outlines Alexandria's intent to comply with state and federal immigration laws but not question the immigration status of people seeking public services.
"Mr. Euille said that the resolution should pass unanimously but that Alexandria has no figures on the cost of providing services to illegal aliens.It truly never fails that someone likens the discussion of illegal immigration to racial politics. If you're an illegal from Asia, Europe, Mexico -wherever- we need to send a consistent message. City Councils that are afraid to "Say No" to illegal immigrants are only fostering an attitude that breaking the law is acceptible.
"We haven't calculated that, and we probably won't calculate that," he said. "We have money designated for human services, but it's not broken down by race."
Oh yeah - lucky for all you Northern Virginia illegals, the resolution passed...
