It’s official: Stafford County is ran by morons.

The Free Lance–Star:

A group studying illegal immigration in Stafford County suggests Stafford seek the right to sanction businesses that hire undocumented workers, and to deny illegal immigrants a public education and emergency medical services.

My Lord, where to being?

A) Wow, that’s compassionate.

B) So, will this be the county’s response to someone having a heart attack?: “Let’s see, you’re not illegal, so get in this wheelchair and we’ll admit you.” Or: “Let’s see, you’re an illegal, go out in the street and die. Next!”

C) Last I checked Stafford County doesn’t run a hospital. Yes, MediCorp is planning on building one in Stafford County, but the county won’t be running it (thank God). MediCorp would laugh these people out of the building if the county came with this proposal.

D) Since the only “emergency medical services” the county provides would be EMTs/Paramedics, are they going to be ordered to play 20 questions (in addition to the work they have to do) and find out if someone is an illegal?: “Yo necesito tu papeles.” (I need your papers.) If the person is an illegal, are they going to deny them transport to a hospital and kick them out of the ambulance?

E) See A.

[…]

The report does not quantify the financial and social impact of illegal immigration in Stafford.

[…]

The report concluded that “Although we cannot quantify that impact, anecdotal evidence, as well as common sense, would dictate that it exists.”

Of course, we have no evidence to support what we’re saying, but it’s true. Trust us, we’re the government.

Scharpenberg said it’s unclear how many employers hire illegal immigrants but that “there’s a lot of winking and nodding in Stafford businesses.”

Another one of those “we have no evidence, but it happens; trust us” comments.

That’s evidence (no pun intended) of crack governing.

    I was hoping someone would point out the “quality” of these reports. How about “deny eduction” – yeah, that’s going to help, the county would be saddled for generations with uneducated delinquents if they accepted that proposal! This is what happens when a “group” gets to supply reports to local government, short sighted opinions and “group think” results. No real solutions.

    Speaking of morons, I think you mean “run by.”

  4. Tis true, I stand corrected. I really appreciate help from the people at The Free Lance–Star.

  5. Especially after you guys totally mess up the story:

    The task force studying illegal immigration in Stafford County said in its report that it recognized the need to provide emergency medical care to persons in need, regardless of immigration status. The report also said it should provide those public health and preventive medical services that ensure the general health of the population, including immunizations, outbreak investigations, TB investigation and case management, STD/HIV clinical services, communicable disease management and treatment, and other public health services as required by federal or state law. A story yesterday incorrectly reported the recommendations of the task force dealing with these medical services.

    Reread what “Interested Reader” wrote. My sentiments exactly.

    And regarding lack of compassion, please realize that everyone dies.
    Preservation of life is completely overrated. Overpopulation is going to strangle us.
