[The following Resolution was passed unanimously by the Loudoun County Republican Committee Convention delegates on Saturday, June 9. Congrats to Chair Ranjani Johnson (shown below reading the Resolution) and the LCRC Issues Committee. It is a very strong statement which reflects the growing sentiment among American citizens that something must be done to address the negative effects of illegal immigration in their communities.]

Resolution in Support of Legal Immigration and Enforcement of Current Immigration Law

Whereas, respect for the rule of law unites Americans of diverse ancestry and national origin, and legal immigration is grounded in respect for the rule of law; and

Whereas, fundamental fairness dictates that those individuals who respect our laws should first receive the benefits of citizenship under current law; and

Whereas, current law, which mandates deportation of those who violate our immigration laws, should be enforced; and

Whereas, the negative effects of illegal immigration are pervasive and create an increasing burden on every segment of society; and

Whereas, any weakening of our current immigration law compromises the rule of law and our national security; and

Whereas, the negative effects of illegal immigration include a depressed wage base, increased violent crime, degradation of community standards, and overburdening of our education, healthcare and social welfare systems; and

Whereas, these negative effects cumulatively threaten the national sovereignty of the United States of America; and

Whereas, it is unconscionable for those entrusted with the protection of our society to ignore these negative effects or reward the violation of our laws; now, therefore be it

Resolved, that we, the delegates to the Loudoun County, Virginia Republican Convention of Two Thousand and Seven, call on all our elected officials to oppose any legislation which rewards violation of our current immigration laws; and, be it further

Resolved, that we call on our elected officials, at all levels of government, to support and enact legislation which effectively penalizes any entity which aids or abets or promotes the violation of these laws; and, be it further

Resolved, that the Convention directs its Chairman to cause a copy of this resolution to be distributed to the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, to the Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, to the Republican members of the General Assembly representing Loudoun County, to our statewide elected officials, to our members of the House of Representatives and United States Senate, to our members of the Board of Supervisors and to members of the press.

Except for that segment that needs its toilets plunged.

Yeah, you're right, Eric. Plumbers are losers and always have been. No American should ever do such work.

Now just do it, we have a lot of teens looking for work and people on welfare. Plumbers make good money, try and get one to come to your home for less than a C-note. I do not use anyone not here legally or a company that hires them.
