The free local fishwrap paper has a smoochy interview with Gerry Connolly, the Democratic candidate for a Northern Virginia congressional race, today. I’ve been watching Connolly for a while and he’s a big liberal–far too liberal even for one of the bluer ends of Virginia.

In the Fairfax Chronicle interview he’s wayyy left on a lot of issues–for example, hand-holding diplomacy with Iran. BUT all of a sudden he might not want you to know how liberal he is on one particular issue:

On immigration, Connolly said that securing our borders and stopping the flow of illegal immigrants must be a top priority of the next Congress; however, enforcement is only part of the solution. He said, “As a local government official, I’ve had to deal with the effects of our failed federal immigration system. That system is broken from top to bottom and needs wholesale reform.”

As Michelle might say, snorty-snort-snort-snort.

As Fairfax County supervisor, Connolly drove Fairfax County’s sanctuary policy for illegal immigrants. If he wants to fix the faults in the system, he can look in the mirror. Here’s Connolly last year:

“I can just tell you Fairfax County is not going to go the route of some of our neighbors. We’re not going to demagogue. We’re not going to essentially roll back the welcome mat.”

Oh, if you’re wondering why he’s not trumpeting his liberal policies on the immigration issue like he is with the others, here’s a clue.

In case you were wondering, Connolly’s Republican opponent, Keith Fimian, maintains a website here.
