On Tuesday evening, Corey Stewart stood before a friendly crowd outside ICE offices on Prosperity Avenue in Fairfax. Held high were two large American flags and two Remembrance Project banners, showing photos of family members who lost their lives at the hands of illegal immigrants.
Stewart began to address the crowd of about 50 people. And then the chanting and drum-beating began. A crowd half the size had waded into Stewart territory to protest his rally and to call for the abolition of ICE. Yes, right outside ICE offices, with ICE officers and Fairfax County Police standing in their midst.
Fortunately for Stewart, there was a large loudspeaker to project his voice over the din of drum-beating and music with a Latin flare. Protesters showed no respect for the crowd who came to hear Stewart speak. None. They chanted, played music and disrupted.
But Corey Stewart held his ground, delivering a powerful message of support for men and women in law enforcement who work tirelessly to keep our borders and communities safe. He stands unique among candidates for his bravery in taking that message, literally, to the streets.

Fairfax County to Stop Cooperation with ICE Detainer Requests on May 23
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is responsible for enforcing federal immigration laws as part of its homeland security mission.
Fairfax has a serious gang (MS-13) and criminal illegal alien problem. On March 3, 2017, just over a year ago after a series of brutal MS-13 gang-related disappearances and homicides in the County, Fairfax County Police Chief Ed Roessler stated “This problem is horrible…This is getting out of control and we need to stop it.” Sheriff Kincaid’s solution to the problems caused by illegal immigration in Fairfax? She is reducing cooperation with ICE. On May 23, Fairfax County will stop cooperating with …
Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam vetoed a bill that would’ve banned localities from adopting so-called sanctuary city measures, which shields illegal aliens from deportation if they report crimes. That was the selling pitch, by the way. What it has become is a safe space for people who shouldn’t be here, coupled with local authorities inhibiting the enforcement of federal immigration laws.
