Pro Illegals Take Notice
Herndon, Virginia- Take notice that Steve DeBenedittis has beaten incumbent Michael O'Reilly. Steve DeBenedittis was against the illegal alien labor center that was a news storm a while back. There is more! It seems the voters unseated all those who supported the labor center. Heh. The Wapo has this:
Herndon voters yesterday unseated the mayor and Town Council members who supported a bitterly debated day-labor center for immigrant workers in a contest that emerged as a mini-referendum on the turbulent national issue of illegal immigration. Residents replaced the incumbents with a group of challengers who immediately called for significant changes at the center. Some want to bar public funds from being spent on the facility or restrict it to workers residing in the country legally. Others want it moved to an industrial site away from the residential neighborhood where it is located.
This issue will play big time in the upcoming senate race. Illegal is illegal and the voters in Herndon have made that clear. This plays in Sen Allen's favor. The labor center was a reward for illegal behavior. Sen Allen has stated many times "we must not reward illegal behavior; rewarding illegal behavior will only encourage more illegal actions." His views on immigration can be found here. Pro illegals take notice!
