Columnist: Prince William Decision by DHS Makes No Sense
"Leave it to the federal government to needlessly disrupt local laws that have been in force for five years in Prince William... laws that seem to cry out, 'Leave us alone. We're working!' I speak of a move made public this week by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to lessen, in effect, the enforcement of the county's immigration laws on virtually everyone other than known criminals," says John Merli at InsideNOVA.com. "Enforcement, therefore, is likely to wane. Given the fact that items in the federal budget will be on the chopping block for years to come, ICE is in no position to effectively enforce immigration rules at the state and county levels, and if it thinks checking some massive federal database of names will help, then we have a bridge in Brooklyn it might be interested in purchasing."
