No thanks to our federal government.

Area Hispanic business owners said Tuesday that they have seen as much as a 40 percent drop in business since the county passed a resolution aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration.
Ruben Andrade hasn't lost quite that much, but said people are not going out as much out of fear that they will be stopped by police.
"My sales at Sabor Latino -- normally I was doing about $110,000 a month, now it dropped to about $80,000," said Andrade, who owns Sabor Latino in Dale City, Tipicos Dona in Woodbridge, Mi Casita in Manassas and East Coast Cafe in Woodbridge as well as Casa Maria in Herndon.
