Fairfax County, Virginia Presents Dire Warning to America

My home county of Fairfax, Virginia was once a safe suburban area with some of the best performing public schools in the nation. It’s now a blinking warning sign to America as it hangs on the edge of complete disaster thanks to unchecked immigration and Democrat takeover of the government.

Even with the high concentration of government workers, Fairfax County was once a Republican bastion before it became a political battleground. The Bush/Cheney ticket won the county in a close race in 2000 and then lost it badly in 2004 due to a significant increase in Democrat votes.

Fairfax’s descent into its current state started with a wave immigration, much of it illegal, into the area which washed away Republican political viability.

Fairfax County became a nullification (sanctuary) county in 2018 and now puts a significant chunk of money into its budget to defend noncitizens from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, although the problem started long before that. By 2015, 30% of the county was foreign-born.

MI-13, a brutal criminal gang, is now more active than ever, and the once marquee schools have started what will be a long slide through mediocrity to abysmal.

Fairfax just ranked seventh among the highest-crime sanctuary jurisdictions, ranking just below Chicago and tied with a nearby Maryland county that has had at least nine illegal alien sexual assaults since its sanctuary policy was declared in late July. That’s staggering. Fairfax County now is on a list of shame with Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and San Francisco.

Even apart from the rapidly deteriorating safety, the schools are sinking under the fiscal and social costs. It costs on average $15,283 to educate each of the 188,000 students in the county. That’s an enormous bill, and the cost for limited–English proficiency students is likely about $10,000 higher per student.

Back in 2015, when the problem was nowhere near as acute as today, nearby Alexandria County spent over 45% of its instructional funding on limited English proficiency students.

In this context, flooding the county with noncitizens who are contributing little tax revenue must result in worse schools and far higher taxes. It’s a mathematical certainty.

But the flood of new residents achieved its primary purpose, which was to make the ground here far more hospitable for Democrat politicians. Nearly 12,000 county residents were in deportation proceedings late last year, which the county is vigorously fighting in the interest of political power.

This once Republican bastion is now a no man’s land for Republicans. On the single greatest day of 2016, Donald Trump was way ahead in Virginia with most of the vote counted. But anyone who dared to hope that this was still a battleground state was in for a rude awakening when the votes from the northern Virginia counties were added to the tally.

Virginia is gone. The only difference between Virginia and California is in the shade of blue. The state will trend ever darker blue barring a significant change in the voting patterns of the newer residents.

The dominoes continue to fall. Fairfax fell early, even as neighboring Prince William County remained in Republican hands. But that county is also now in deep trouble, and other dominoes will spread out from there, county by county. This is the same path that Texas is on, only it is a little farther behind.

The Democrat votes brought a Democrat school board, along with local county leadership. This meant the adoption of a policy framework called “One Fairfax” in November 2017.

“One Fairfax” is representative of what is happening across the country. A constellation of groups with backers like George Soros are active across America, subverting local governments and education. As the Daily Caller noted, these groups are already active in 33 cities and counties, covering 10% of Americans.

The “One Fairfax” name brings to mind Sauron’s one ring to rule them all from The Lord of the Rings. Like that ring, One Fairfax is intended to destroy all dissent or resistance and to force absolute subservience and surrender. The key buzzword used to squash dissent is “equity,” which is intended to shut down debate.
