    Anger over county anti-illegals measure

    By Natasha Altamirano

    Prince William County's Human Rights Commission will hear presentations from groups opposed to a recently adopted resolution limiting services to illegal aliens, despite a warning from the Board of County Supervisors that the commission not critique its policies.

    "This thing will have consequences for years to come," commission member Carlos Labiosa said yesterday. "We want to make sure it's done properly. The Board of County Supervisors wants to make sure it's done properly."

    A four-member committee of the county's nine-member Human Rights Commission was scheduled to hold its sixth of 10 meetings last night and to hear from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Unity in the Community and the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, which has threatened to sue the county over the July resolution.

    Help Save Manassas and the Federation for American Immigration Reform are the only groups invited to speak that support the resolution, which also would toughen local immigration enforcement.

    Other presenters include the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Woodbridge Workers Committee, Tenants and Workers United, and Mexicans Without Borders, which has organized a weeklong boycott ending Monday of county businesses not owned by immigrants.
