DHS sued for information on criminal illegal aliens turned over to them (Prince William County) - 08/04/11
The press release from Prince William County, Virginia explains it all (link):
Due to lax policies on the part of the Department of Homeland Security, an illegal alien who had been convicted of drunk driving and had a series of other run-ins with police was not deported immediately. Instead, he was put into DHS' "Alternatives to Detention" program and in August 2010 he drove drunk and killed a nun and seriously injured two other nuns. Read about it here, including the following from a report that the DHS appears to have tried to keep secret: On May 7, 2009, after Montano served the portion of his sentence that had not been suspended, ICE took him into custody. Based on...
From this: Prince William supervisors Tuesday are expected to put in place a new directive from Homeland Security that will standardize how 287(g) immigration policies are implemented around the nation... ...The new agreement states that "ICE must give approval for an immigration arrest where no state or local charges are made [and] ICE must give prior approval of planned operations where immigration enforcement is the sole function." One more revision "provides levels and types of criminal offenses that ICE directs to be a focus, rather [than] pursuing immigration enforcement based on...

Jorge Bustamante of United Nations to review immigration in Prince William County, Virginia - 06/05/08
The United Nations' special rapporteur on migrants' rights, Jorge Bustamante will be paying a visit to Prince William County, Virginia to review their strict anti-illegal immigration ordinance (link). He'll be visiting Manassas and Woodbridge and trying to speak with local officials on June 10 and 11, and his visit might have been orchestrated by the extremist group Mexicanos Sin Fronteras. Among other things, Bustamante is a Mexican citizen and partisan who wanted Mexican immigrants to the U.S. to become citizens of this country in order to push Mexico's agenda inside the U.S. This link...
Stephen Fuller/George Mason University: are you sure you're a professor of public policy? - 04/25/08
[The money followed in the update, and also see the 9500 Liberty page.] Stephen Fuller/Stephen S. Fuller of George Mason University - supposedly a professor of public policy - is featured on the latest video from 9500 Liberty. On the video (called "IMMIGRATION Crackdown HURTS Our Economy", link) he discusses the dire consequences of Prince William County in northern Virginia trying to do something about illegal immigration in their county. Oddly enough, for the several minutes that Fuller basically says the same thing over and over, he only discusses direct economic effects and certainly...
Filmmakers Eric Byler, Annabel Park, and Jeff Man run "9500Liberty", a pro-illegal immigration online documentary project discussing issues in northern Virginia (youtube.com/user/9500Liberty). In the past they've resorted to re-re-re-repurposing supposedly controversial comments from an older white gentleman in an attempt to racially demagogue the issue, but now they're back with a new video called "IMMIGRATION Crackdown HURTS Our Economy" (link) featuring the thoughts of supposed professor of Public Policy at George Mason University, Stephen Fuller. Like their other efforts, the video is...
Doug Feaver runs the Washington Post blog "dot.comments", which appears to consist of attacks against their readers who leave comments rather than attempts to engage those readers' concerns. Yesterday he offered "The Latino Emigration" (link), a passive-aggressive attempt to smear those who, unlike the WaPo, oppose illegal activity:

A documentary about the immigration situation in Northern Virginia from independent filmmakers Eric Byler, Annabel Park, and Jeff Man is currently being serialized on the web: youtube.com/9500Liberty. Nick Miroff of the Washington Post promotes it in "Raw Look at Immigration Crucible". Both he and a member of the local Minuteman Civil Defense Corps say they're balanced. However, a glance at the videos casts a great deal of doubt on that, and Miroff admits that both Byler and Park volunteered for the James Webb campaign. In fact: "Watching George Allen look into the camera and point and say...
Pamela Constable of the Washington Post offers "Latinos Unite Across Classes Against Curbs on Immigration" (link). It ends with this: "I have always appreciated this country, and it really upsets me to hear about this law," said [middle class construction company employee Jesus Calva], who spoke briefly at last Tuesday's [Prince William County] hearing [about an anti-illegal immigration resolution].
On the 9th, the New York Times offered the editorial "Is It Fixed Yet?".
One of the standard games that president Bush, members of his administration, the presidential candidates, and other politicians play is to claim that "comprehensive immigration reform" is not amnesty.
