Responding to the unanimous passage by Prince William County of a resolution condemning illegal immigration, Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (Republican- Sterling) made this statement:

Quote "I wish to make a firm statement against illegal immigrants coming to Loudoun County. I am in contact with hundreds of residents on a daily basis including a just completed door to door canvass until late at night. Members of the board of supervisors are responding also. Thank you to the citizens and the supervisors. We need help here.

Together with other supervisors, I will co-sponsor a resolution opposing illegal immigration on Tuesday, July 17, 2007 at the regular meeting of the board of supervisors. I will support the placement of a resolution condemning illegal immigration and ask the county to adopt a policy similar to the resolution passed by Prince William County's board of supervisors. I will vote to suspend the rules to put it on the agenda. I will vote to ask the staff to work with Supervisors to draft a policy that opposes illegal immigrants residing in Loudoun County," Delgaudio said. Unquote

Delgaudio is inviting other supervisors to join him to make a statement of support for a resolution opposing illegal immigrants in Loudoun County at 9 A.M. on Tuesday, July 17, in front of the Loudoun County Government building in Leesburg at One Harrison Street, S.E. at the ground level in front of the flag poles on the plaza between the government building and the parking lot.

The board of supervisors begins their regular meeting at 9:30 a.m. with public comment from citizens 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. approximately and then regular agenda items taken up. It may be several hours until the resolution concerning illegal immigration is discussed.
