Immigration in Chesterfield
A VCU professor stated today that counties such as Chesterfield have seen an increase in over 200% of the number of immigrants residing within the county. That is an astonishing number when you think about it. How are we at the local level planning on addressing these increases given the fact the Federal Government is about to pass Immigration reform that will in fact allow all of those with the 200% that are"illegal" to remain. We really and no one does for that matter have a handle on just what the impact is of "illegals" within our community, but you would think that now may be a good time to begin the process of figuring it out.
