Life ain’t easy for the politically sensitive, multicultural police chief.
Where I live in Virginia, Prince William County’s Jefe de la Policia Charlie Deane had a near miss. Authorities in Fairfax County, on our Northern border, arrested a Belgian accused of soliciting prostitution. A records check, conducted as part of the Federal “Secure Communities” program, revealed this miscreant was also an illegal alien.
Thank goodness this bad man was caught before he had a chance to cross the Occoquan.
Adding Belgian outreach to his already extensive Hispanic illegal alien outreach could have pushed Jefe Deane over the edge. There is only so much apologizing for enforcing the law that one man can do.
Reaching out to Belgians is particularly difficult in that you have to pander in two languages: Flemish and French. Plus Deane would have had to find a police officer with a French surname that spoke French and a Flemish surnamed officer that spoke Flemish otherwise his outreach would not be sincere.
Que Lastima!
That sort of complication makes last year’s Hispanic Contrition Tour (or Festival de Contrición) look like a model of efficiency, since one abject apology in Spanish covers about 15 countries and most of the landscapers in the county.
“Secure Communities” is actually sort of an SAT test for illegals. It only matches arrestees with a database of aliens who had a visa and overstayed, or aliens who were caught earlier and are making a return visit to the hoosegow.
If Juan is clever enough to avoid attracting attention after he wades the Rio Grande — not difficult under Deane’s lethargic enforcement regime — his name won’t be in the database. And if there is no database hit, then Juan remains in El Norte.
“Secure Communities” is a much less stringent affair than the 287g program that allows deputized local officials to determine whether or not to pursue deportation of illegals.
Of course if it were up to Deane the welcome mat (or alfombra de bienvenida) would never be withdrawn. He worries that a lot of crime is going unreported due to a victim’s immigration status, hence the constant reassurance that Deane’s heart is not really in immigration work.
But I wonder if when Charlie’s talking to “immigrant rights groups” do the terms “aiding and abetting” or “conspiracy” ever come to mind?
The audience for his outreach often is illegal or knows other illegals, harbors illegals, knowingly does business with illegals and generally approves of the mass violation of the nation’s borders. Yet our jefe is unperturbed.
Besides, if he’s groveling to Hispanics for enforcing the law, shouldn’t Deane be doing something on the same order to citizens for not enforcing the law?
It is interesting to compare Deane’s come–one–come–all (or viene uno que llega a todos) philosophy with that of Frederick County, MD Sheriff Charles Jenkins (trust me, the first name is the only similarity).
Jenkins’ policy is to target every inmate identified as an illegal for deportation, which amounts to about 9 percent of his jail population.
“One of the first persons we processed [for deportation] was driving under the influence of alcohol through a school zone during school hours at 30 miles over the speed limit," Jenkins told the Washington Post. "Is he any less of a threat to the community than a [top-level] offender? I would argue no."
A sentiment not shared by Deane who downplays illegal alien crime by explaining the most common violations are driving without a license, public intoxication and driving under the influence of alcohol.
That’s certain to be comforting to the taxpayer in an auto crash with an illegal who had neither a licencia de operador del automóvil or insurance.
It's a mere property crime, don’t you know, and besides the county furnishes Deane with his ride.
But now if looks like Charlie’s foot–dragging has finally paid off.
The census has come to town and thar’s gold in them thar Mexicans. Why our Board of Supervisor’s says Uncle Sam’s bounty on illegals is $1,000.00 a head and we want to count every last Jesús and Jesúsa.
That measly thousand bucks will just about cover the county fee for the ambulance ride and first visit to the emergency room for our newly welcome South–of–the–Border guest.
After Obama’s thousand bucks is gone, who pays for the schools and associated social costs that illegals bring?
Once the public gets past the whiplash–inducing political hypocrisy, I don’t foresee a counting problem. Just ask Charlie for the list of groups he’s apologized to and work up from there.
One thing is certain: Hispanics aren’t shy about lecturing the US on how to improve the illegal immigrant experience. Just this week Colombian fanny–shaker Shakira was in the White House to discuss “child development programs in Latin America.”
But she’s behind the curve. We already have a program for that. It’s called “anchor babies.”

Wouldn't you like to keep your paycheck? You can. Here's how.
"Income" tax is the genesis of all ill-designed, unnecessary policies that have destroyed your freedoms, liberty, and Democratic Republic of America.
This is how it works: The federal government takes your paycheck (income) and spends it any way they want.
Once upon a time, you were a part of voting on how you wanted them to spend your money; but not today.
Over time, bureaucrats and “The Power, Money and Control” hungry, slowly took away your rights of participation. Now you are not allowed any say in how your money is spent!
Would you like to keep your paycheck?
Did you know you can?
Did you know you have the right to keep your paycheck?
Here’s how:
a) Write, call, email your federal incumbents - and governor, the minute you're through reading this.
b) State slowly and clearly, “You may not have my paycheck!”
c) Demand they immediately stop action on any policy that exceeds the original scope of the Constitution of the United States of America; like policies including health, climate, education.
d) Demand they abolish income tax completely.
e) Demand they transition in the American Consumer Tax (ACT).
If they haven’t heard of ACT, take the time to explain it kindly and articulately (Brief outline follows.). Do not get angry or ugly. Show grace and stay calm while you firmly take your stand. Remember. You are not doing anything wrong. You are instead, doing everything that’s right.
How to end income tax and ACT now?
Each entity that sells goods and services, will have the newly developed software program connected to their computerized method of collecting the payment. This software program will automatically adjust cash, check, debit, credit card receipts, and a 50 state universal percentage of less than 10% would be withdrawn and sent directly to federal.
The soft ware program would be the "tax collector" (Never the retailer!).
Federal spending would be confined to handling by-ways (interstate roads, skyways and shorelines), International Defense, and International Trade - as originally defined in the U.S. Constitution.
Through sales tax, most states already have a form of ACT. The software would simply eliminate the shackle of "tax collector" from retailers.
This software program includes an adaptation mechanism whereas the collected percentages would be broken out according to how each state’s County, Community and State’s voters determine.
States would enjoy the return of states rights, and handle its unique needs including education, medical, welfare, roads.
This is extremely desirous, for each State would enjoy a higher yield on monies collected, simply because they would not accrue “travel” fees.; i.e. looping through D.C. State's would enjoy using this higher yield on monies collected to fund education, welfare and medical needs for every age and at every level. It would be like money once found, for such as "higher education."
Each person who sets foot on U.S. soil would contribute towards the re-building of America. Illegal immigrants, tourists, drug dealers, hookers - everyone, would pay taxes each time they purchased something.
Each person who earns their living in America, would be able to keep their paycheck, thereby budget their own money.
The countless hours and money wasted calculating the dollars and interpreting tax codes would be converted into a production growth that will meet the newly realized interest in purchasing products.
Honest citizens who made mistakes on their tax forms, will be de-criminalized.
Class warfare would diminish.
It would remove the invasive, un-bridled, un-fair powers of the I.R.S.
Families could actually "budget" their money.
It's as fair for Joe the plumber to spend maybe $20.00 total and maximum tax on a $100.00 wrench, as John the rich man to spend $20,000 on a $1,000,000 jet.
This is so straight forward, fair, simple to execute that it absolutely must be implemented!
Charitable citizens would have the means, opportunity, freedom, desire and good cheer to "give their neighbor in need."
All goods and services should be taxed equally. Not one item should be exempt. For examples, all medical including medical Marijuana, food, clothing, shelter everything, should be taxed. This would avoid the return of The Money, Power and Control hungry and their creations of the most worthless products of all, their thousand page babbles of policies that serve only them.
Presently the nation wide Gross State Product number is falling more and more rapidly. Why? Policies built around income discourages production in the U.S. With an end to such, U.S. production would re-surge powerfully.
Because not all people pay income tax, it stands to reason that mathematically - Federal, State, County and Community would most likely collect more from its Equitable Consumption than income. For example, in Colorado, the GSP exceeds Income...and not all that income is taxed...but all GSP would be.
Individuals who off-shore their money ( really in effort to simply “keep their private property- which is their paycheck ) would no longer have reason to do so. They’d keep their money in America, thereby increasing deposits, thus improving the financial stability of banks which then would be in a sounder position of loaning money to give businesses needed capital to produce goods and services.
The enthusiasm generated from the masses opportunity to keep paychecks, would immediately result in everything great, bold and needed for America.
Not one good thing has been born out of “income” tax.
The only salvation for America, is to clearly demolish “income” tax and ACT now!
Return states rights through your own State, County and Community.
Keeping your paycheck is the change you need more than anything else!
This must be done before any more damage is done to you and your America.
Tell your representative to ACT now!!!
