Simpson Again Getting Heat Over Illegal Immigration Failures
Loudoun Sheriff Steve Simpson’s reluctance to get involved with the federal 287(g) program became an issue in his last re-election campaign, and it looks like there will be more controversy on the topic this season. Loudoun County had an illegal immigrant in its jail but failed to find out that he was an back in the country illegally after being deported in 2003. Shortly after his recent release by Loudoun County, he raped an 8 year old girl in Fairfax County. The WaPo had a story on this where Simpson tried to explain himself, but an interesting dissection of that showed up on BVBL yesterday by someone obviously with inside knowledge, and Frank Wolf is demanding an investigation. Sounds kind of like the el-Atari backtracking to me, where political expediency trumps doing the right thing.
