The Washington Times, America's Newspaper: "Federal agents arrested 14 illegal aliens Thursday in Virginia, drawing criticism from local pro-immigration advocates who say the federal government is using the raids as a scare tactic.
Ernestine Fobbs, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the agency has in custody 12 illegals who were arrested in a 3 a.m. raid in Leesburg, Va. Two others are awaiting trial before an immigration judge.
'We responded to a request by the Loudoun County Police Department [and] encountered 14 illegal aliens in a van,' she said. 'We are looking into the possibilities of [it being related] to smuggling. It's an ongoing investigation.'
The raid, and word of others like it, sparked panic among local immigrants, advocates said yesterday.

Just in case you missed this on the news and are too busy complaining that Bush isn't serious about illegal immigration.
