WASHINGTON — Leaders in Fairfax County, Virginia, worry that concern in the immigrant community about being deported could threaten public trust in local police.

People not being afraid to report crime, ask for help or provide police information help make Fairfax County the safest county for its size in the nation, according to Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chair Sharon Bulova.

“We have a very low crime rate,” Bulova said. “If we don’t have that trust, then we jeopardize the safety of our community.”

Officials discussed the issue at Tuesday’s Public Safety Committee meeting.

They’re not thinking it through:

People contemplating illegal entry to the USA will UNDERSTAND they can’t prevail on cops to rigtht wrongs:

Many will therefore not come BECAUSE of that.

The authorities are only PRETENDING to think checkers instead of chess cuz they WANT to expand government and know more illegals are the way to do that.

I doubt this leftist drone would be comfortable with the “low crime rate” if that was her daughter who was gang banged in the school bathroom last week by illegals.

I guess these clowns haven’t heard about all the crimes committed by ILLEGAL ALIENS have they?

They’re more worried about cheap grass cutting, roofing, restaurant cooks, maid service and drug dealers.

Next time I get pulled in Fairfax County, I'm going to say. . ."but officer, if you give me a ticket. . it could undermine my trust in law enforcement and I might be afraid to report crime, ask for help or provide police information to help make Fairfax County the safest county for its size in the nation!!!"

I'm sure the officer will tip his hat and say, "my bad, sir. . .have a nice day."

How about chilling the commission of crimes?

My understanding is that municipalities large and small, even in peaceful rich suburban Virginia, are up to the rafters with crimes committed by illegal aliens. Public defenders are being run ragged by the case backlog. Gang crimes and violence have exploded even thousands of miles from ‘border states’.

I suppose it would be mean to ask if these "leaders" depend on large numbers of "immigrant" votes to keep their jobs.

Do illegal aliens report crimes in the 1st place??? Like to see the stats on that one.

A horrific rape happened lately in high school Montgomery Co. I live there. The scuttle butt is that the non-Hispanic students were disgusted. The Hispanics were joking about it.

We got a big problem if this culture can’t meld with our. I thought the Muslims were are only problem. Lordy.

The People’s Democratic Socialist Workers Paradise of Fairfax County is eaten up with government and Leftist RATs on the board of supervisors (I was born there). Heck, the City of Fairfax homosexual ex-mayor was just convicted in a meth-for-(butt)sex case. They welcome illegal alien invaders with open arms, including violent gangs such as MS-13, and they are the main reason Virginia has gone blue in the past number of elections. They always report their results last in the Commonwealth to ensure the vote tally comes out “correct.”

We really, really need to wrest the media from the fetid claws of the left.

“Chilling effects” have gotten a bad rap. Sometimes they’re a good thing.

“immigrant community”

Nobody in the immigrant community needs to have ANY fears. Immigrants are here LEGALLY! The illegal alien community, on the other hand, SHOULD have fears.

Why no concern about a loss of trust in the citizen community?

Tar and feathers for these traitors!

No, not true, at least in Fairfax County. Fairfax County has over 1.1 million people and it is the safest county of that size in the US and has been for years. As a whole crime has been going down in this county with even a larger population every year. In 2015, there were only 13 murders, compared to 10 murders in 2014. Most all were domestic. Rapes around 200 each year. Crime down in 2015 as compared to 2014.

So we are good here. Of course, any crime is bad, but compared to other cities over 1 million we are doing well.

NOT ONE WORD ABOUT THE POSSIBLE FEARS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS.

Only concern for the PEOPLE HERE ILLEGALLY.
