Del Responding To Critics

October 28, 2006

>>>HELP DISCOVERY PARK FINISH THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY

If you have not yet come out to help, this is your chance. This is an
amazing project and to be part of it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime
experience. Sully Elementary School PTO needs volunteers to come out
TODAY, Saturday, 10/28 and Sunday, 10/29, starting 7am. We are very
close and just need this final push to finish this unique play structure.

>>>IMMIGRATION ISSUE AND FOREIGN CRIMINALS TODAY, TOMORROW AND NEXT WEEK.

In recent days, Loudoun county has learned of 9 jailed foreign nationals
who are slated for deportation after they serve their time, seen an
escaped murderer from an El Salvadoran prison captured, and seven
foreign nationals apprehended and held for deportation hearings.

Clearly all of these people were associated with or discovered as part
of investigations for crimes against Loudoun residents. Sheriff Steve
Simpson and his organization is to be commended for the job they are doing.

>>> PUBLIC DISCUSSION IN FULL SWING

Newspapers are publishing reports on how I am encouraging authorities to
consider the 287 G program to deport alien criminals.

A large percentage of crimes committed by alien criminals are against
the most vunerable people in our society, foreign nationals here in
Sterling and Loudoun.

>>> LIBERALS HAVE IT WRONG AND LET IT ALL HANG OUT
Interviews and letters from special interest groups and liberals from
Loudoun and Fairfax county are beginning to condemn the direction
Loudoun is going in. These liberals are claiming my intent is rounding
up illegal immigrants. They are wrong.

Fairfax liberals should mind their own business.

If we could deport these alien criminal malcontents to Fairfax County
and let them live there, it would be a just reward to these liberals but
it would not be right. They allow alien criminals to prey upon their
foreign national population and I condemn their lax and leniant policies.

In my September 12 letter to Sheriff Steve Simpson, I said (in part)
(Quote) " I propose a model allowing participation in the (287 g)
program, at a reasonable cost, without distracting your hard-working
deputies from their essential duties.

>>> TRAIN.. ONLY A FEW
Rather than have hundreds of field deputies to travel to Georgia, or
attend training elsewhere, I propose your department mandate 287(g)
authority training only for the few, eligible, personnel who process
arrestees at the Adult Detention Center. " (unquote)

>>> Delgaudio says MALDEF Critics Are Coddling Violent Criminals

In an October 27 letter responding to Ms. Tisha R. Tallman, the
Southeast Regional Counsel, for MALDEF (Mexican American Legal Defense
and Educational Fund), one of the liberal interest groups attempting to
distort and dictate to Sterling and Loudoun residents, I wrote in part:

>>> MY HISPANIC CONSTIUENTS ARE... THE VICTIMS
I must say I am bitterly disappointed that MALDEF is more interested in
protecting violent felons than they are in protecting the rights of my
Hispanic and Latino constituents. My Hispanic and Latino residents --
who are my constituents also-- are too often the victims of these
violent felons, and I would hope your organization would take a greater
interest in their welfare.

Your letter also makes many false assumptions about the direction we are
taking. Allow me to explain our goals and the model we propose to follow.

We are very aware that many law-abiding Hispanic and Latino constituents
in Sterling would be uncomfortable speaking to a sheriff's deputy with
the authority to arrest people on suspicion of breaking immigration law.
That is precisely why I did not propose such authority be given to field
deputies or those in direct contact with the community.

The direction we are considering is to train the officers who process
arrestees at our Adult Detention Center. The authority to investigate
immigration status would not rest with anyone out in the field.

>>>>SHIP THE FELONS OUT
>>> STOP THEM FROM VICTIMIZING MY CONSTITUENTS

.......Considering that those most often violated by such individuals
tend to be Hispanic and Latino, it is disappointing that MALDEF is more
concerned about the welfare of violent felons than they are for my
Hispanic and Latino constituents.

I would be interested to hear your organization explain to my Hispanic
and Latino constituents and residents why the violent felons who enter
their community illegally and rob, rape and attempt to kill them should
be released back onto their streets. They are sick and tired of having
their property vandalized, their children accosted and their lives put
in jeopardy by violent felons who have no business in their community
and cast aspersions on legal Hispanic and Latino immigrants.

>>> KEEP THE GANG TASK FORCE FUNDED

I am considering options to assist me in the protection of my
consitutents at this time. It is clear that there are elements working
to continue to deprive the right to a peaceful environment in Sterling.
These elements are seeking to protect alien criminals who are not
citizens and are currently free to prey on victims without limit.

Sterling and Loudoun must work to keep the Tenth Congressional District
Gang Task Force started by Congressman Frank Wolf funded. This has made
a critical difference in this effort to bring federal forces to bear on
a interstate and international criminal element loose in Sterling.
Congressman Frank Wolf started this Gang Task Force 2 years ago and it
is making possible the cooperation we are seeing today with federal
agents of several law enforcement agencies.

I salute Congressman Frank Wolf for having the vision and the leadership
in pushing this Task Force through Congress and obtaining President
George Bush's signature. I hope Congressman Wolf can obtain funding for
this critical program in the next Congress. It would be a disaster for
Sterling and the region if this Task Force was disbanded.
