Just when you think Corey Stewart can’t get any crazier or more extreme…he goes ahead and does! Check out this Corey Stewart press release today (also, see below). And yes, this xenophobic demagogue is the likely frontrunner for the 2018 Virginia GOP U.S. Senate nomination. Anything more you need to know about that off-the-far-right-deep-end party?

P.S. Check out Stewart’s call to arrest Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid at 10:45 or so into the video, below. Note the cheers from the crowd, which indicates the “base” that Stewart is pandering to. Great, huh? Let’s just make sure we reelect Sen. Tim Kaine in a historic landslide this November!

Corey Stewart Calls on Federal Authorities to Arrest Fairfax Sheriff Kincaid

Woodbridge, VA –  Republican Corey Stewart called on federal authorities to arrest Sheriff Kincaid for her refusal to protect Fairfax’s citizens by cooperating with ICE. Stewart made the comments at a rally advocating for the expansion of local cooperation with ICE officials through the 287(g) program in Culpeper Saturday. 

“I’ve called on federal authorities to arrest any municipal official assisting criminal illegal aliens by offering them safe harbor in their jurisdictions, and that includes Fairfax County,” Stewart said, “so I’m calling for the arrest of Sheriff Stacey Kincaid.” 

“Democrats are trying to turn the nation into a sanctuary nation, and America rose up to stop that in 2016. I’m running against Tim Kaine to stop our great nation from being overrun by illegal aliens and the crime, drugs, human trafficking, poverty and misery they bring with them,” Stewart said. 

“Our immigration policy should put American workers first: the citizens who make this country run, who go to work, pay their taxes, and follow the law,” Stewart said. “Illegal immigration and out of control chain migration hurts American workers.” 

“It is time our immigration policies served the interests of American workers and the American economy first,” Stewart said. 

Stewart released his platform to fix America’s illegal alien problem in a press conference today.

    I clearly hear Stewart calling her “Sheriff Cassidy.” Perhaps he’s thinking of another well-known Sheriff? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4adf582c32f112fc04292e98cba7734d0c50a2faa60ba7d93cc2af7d7da22312.jpg

    COREY STEWART JOINS PAT HERRITY IN SCAPEGOATING THE LATINO COMMUNITY FOR POLITICAL GAIN

    Virginia Republican Senate candidate Corey Stewart on Monday reminded us all how eager he and politically-ambitious Fairfax Supervisor Pat Herrity (R) are to vilify and scapegoat the Latino community in pursuit of their political ambition.

    In the latest example of white supremacist showboating, Stewart-style, the candidate called for “the arrest of [Fairfax County] Sheriff Stacey Kincaid” because of her February decision to terminate a small but onerous aspect of the County’s reciprocal agreement with the federal Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) Division.

    Stewart also demanded that DACA be “defunded and ended,” in part because “many of these so-called Dreamers are criminals.”

    Stewart’s attack on the Sheriff has absolutely no chance of being carried out. Kincaid’s action is a sound public policy decision well within her constitutional authority. But it calls to mind the equally gratuitous hatemongering of Stewart’s politically ambitious local confederate, Herrity, who repeatedly has insinuated that all Latino immigrants are gang members and all gang members are criminals. These falsehoods easily are disproved by even a cursory fact check.

    “Stigmatizing an entire group of people is a choice tactic of today’s Republican Party,” said Fairfax County Democratic Committee Chairman Daniel G. Lagana. “And, sadly, it’s easy to do. What’s hard is coming into work every day with a commitment to keep Fairfax County safe and secure by cooperating on a daily basis with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, including ICE, as Sheriff Kincaid is doing,” he concluded.
