Herndon and Immigrants Again

The Post reported yesterday the same old story. Day laborers, presumably most or all illegal immigrants, are out on the streets of Herndon, Virginia, some residents don't like it, so the town is planning to crack down, again. Of course, the town once had a center, where the laborers were off the street and registered, and not bothering people. But they closed that down, hoping to discourage the laborers, which hasn't worked sufficiently to please the good citizens.

So, they plan to escalate their fight. Reminds me of the drug war--as long as the demand (for cheap day laborers) is there, people will meet the demand.
