Finally an elected official states the obvious.
Gone are the summer days when you could just send your kids outside in bathing suits when it rained. As a parent it so hard to compete with the Dems and their Federal Treasury these days.
We should offer counseling services to municipalities around the country.
“The record flood of Central American children crossing the U.S. border is stretching funds and setting off improvisation at public schools.
While politicians spend the summer fighting over how to turn back the tide, school leaders across the country are struggling to absorb a new student population the size of Newark, New Jersey. More than 40,000 children, many of them fresh from violent, harrowing journeys, have been released since October to stateside relatives as courts process their cases.
“These kids were homesick and heartbroken,” said Robin Hamby, a family specialist for Fairfax County Public Schools in suburban Washington, which began feeling the surge almost as soon as it began three years ago.
Her Virginia district employs more teachers who work with non-English speakers than ever, and wrote a curriculum to reunite children and parents, many of whom haven’t seen one another in years. Houston is increasing training and translation. Los Angeles nurses are working overtime to screen for emotional trauma created on the journey north.”

The headline of PWC Board Chairman Corey Stewart’s email yesterday said it all.
Fox & Friends Tomorrow! Again!
The key part of it being “Again!”
When I first heard yesterday that Corey was going to be on Fox & Friends, I thought it was perhaps an old email regarding his appearance on Friday, July 11. Alas, it was not and why the operative word “Again!” was used in the email header.
Guess who is going to be on Fox & Friends tomorrow? Again!
Tune in bright and early to Fox & Friends at 6:15 am, while you are enjoying your Sunday coffee, as I discuss Prince William County’s renewed fight with the Federal Government over the disposition of the 7,000+ criminal illegal aliens our law enforcement officers have apprehended and handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

If only the offending teen had played on a State Champion. There is so much of this going on at Osbourn and in the schools these days; not just in Manassas. Did the Manassas Police speak with Manassas City school officials about this first? We as citizens and parents have been asked to work with the school system and give it a chance. This is how we are rewarded for holding our anger and complaints in check, while new management attempts to fix our problems? Can’t the city do a better job of warning the students of what might happen if they engage in this kind of conduct without another Bobbit moment? I understand why a defense lawyer would attempt to embarrass the city concerning the facts of this case, what I don’t understand is why local Law Enforcement would expose the city to ridicule by its handling of such a story.
Update from City Police:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Juvenile Sexting Case
On January 23, 2014 Manassas City Police was contacted by a parent of a 15 YOA female juvenile who was sent pornographic videos by a 17 YOA male suspect after repeatedly being told to stop. Upon further investigating the incident charges of manufacturing and distributing child pornography were brought against the 17 YOA male suspect on January 28, 2014 after consultation with the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office. The matter was set for trial on June 4th 2014 where charges were nolle prosqui by a Prince William County Assistant Commonwealth Attorney.
The circumstances on the decision to dismiss charges and bring forward new charges cannot be released at this time due to this incident being an active investigation and involving juveniles. New charges of manufacturing and distributing child pornography have been brought forward and a court date is pending.
It is not the policy of the Manassas City Police or the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office to authorize invasive search procedures of suspects in cases of this nature and no such procedures have been conducted in this case. Beyond that, neither the Police Department nor the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office discusses evidentiary matters prior to court hearings.

“The national immigration crisis on the United States’ southern border is now impacting Massachusetts.
Tens of thousands of children have come across the border on their own in the past year. Many of them are now finding their way to communities around Boston.
Chelsea is ground zero for this wave of children, many undocumented immigrants, coming from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
“There’s been a dramatic increase for us from January of this year through the closing of schools which was last week,” says Chelsea Schools Superintendent Dr. Mary Bourque.
Schools in this city are bursting at the seams. At the start of this past school year, Chelsea had 5500 students. They ended with 6200. 285 of those new students came from outside the country. While another 75 arrived through Texas and Arizona, home to the crowded detention centers where the children are being housed as they cross. …”
