Today on NewsTalk, Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart leveled serious charges against the federal government, saying immigration officials routinely release dangerous illegal aliens back into the community because they lack the resources to deport them.

The county voted this week to sue the Department of Homeland Security for failing to comply with a FOIA request they filed last year. The request sought information about Carlos Montano, a Bolivian national charged with DUI in the death of a Benedictine nun last summer, and 3,000 other suspected illegal aliens referred by Prince William to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). County leaders say Montano was an illegal alien whose record included prior drunk driving convictions – and that if immigration officials had been doing their job, Montano would not have been free – and behind the wheel of a car – the day of the accident:

Stewart says Montano was also involved in traffic stops in Fairfax County and Manassas Park prior to the August 2010 accident. He faulted those jurisdictions for not adopting immigration policies similar to Prince William.

Our interview with Stewart also touched on his political future and the just-completed session of the Virginia General Assembly.
