Meanwhile, in the Anti-Reston....

Herndon has joined something called the Coalition on Illegal Aliens, a group of Minuteman-intensive area localities. It's in fine company with such other enlightened locales as the town of Culpeper, Shenandoah County and Prince William, where the campaign theme of the fall elections was pretty much "let's hate on the immigrants."

Martin Bernal, a community leader in Culpeper, said it has seemed lately as though the whole Latino community has been under attack. "Things have really picked up since Prince William came out with that plan," he said. "They are blaming us for everything that's going wrong in this country and with the economy."
But Herndon's even more awesome! Because of its unprecedented success in shutting down its day laborer center and protecting free and unfettered access to its 7-11s and the precious bodily fluids offered therein (Mr. Pibb!), Herndon Mayor Stephen J. DeBenedittis will chair the group. Because, you know, now that the day laborer center is closed, there are no longer any illegal immigrants in Herndon and all of its problems have been solved forever. In fact, they've even started serving meatloaf and Freedom Fries at El Campero!
