Whew! Here We Thought They Were Profiling...
Every person arrested in Prince William County will have their names run through a federal database to determine their citizenship status, even if they are not suspected of being in the country illegally, according to a draft of the county's revised illegal-immigration policy.
Whew! Thank the gods of where-the-hell-are-we-going-to-get-the-money...?!? It's all very clear now.
The Washington Post reports that Prince William County Chairman Corey A. Stewart is happy as a clam to squander dwindling tax resources to advance his lame-brained idea of rounding up people for driving/walking while Latino/a (or Latino/a looking).
And just to make sure that absolutely no one accuses PWC of profiling, Whitey Robber gets a run through the computer, same as Luis Probrecito who ran a red light.
All nice and fair -- as you can see -- or perhaps not.
