Illegals = Losers

At least from a political standpoint. Don't believe me? Ask the (soon-to-be) former mayor of Herndon, VA. In this blue-tinted suburb of DC (Democrats Mark Warner and Tim Keane both carried it in their races for governor), with a strong pro-immigration community, the Mayor and City Council voted 5-2 in favor of a taxpayer-funded day laborer shelter.

Yesterday was election day in Herndon. How did the pro-illegal politicians fare? If the new council were to vote on the day laborer issue, the vote now would be 6-1 against. The mayor and his pro-illegal pals are out on their political assets.

Massachusetts politicians would be wise to keep this story in mind.
