Prince William County, Va. citizens told their board of supervisors it's "outrageous" that the government won't protect them from the influx of illegal aliens.

"The federal government cares not one bit about people in Virginia," one citizen told the board at its July 15, 2014 meeting.

Another citizen warned of the health and safety risks posed by the illegal aliens:

"How many of them have M.S. (gang) tattoos on their bodies, how many of them have scabbies, how many of them have tuberculosis?"

"Do your jobs. That's what you're elected to do," another said.

One citizen even went so far as to suggest that, if the government won't protect its citizens, they may have to take matters into their own hands:

"The citizens of Prince William County will not stand by while our local government hides its head in the sand and pretends it cannot protect us. If you cannot protect us, who do we have to trust and turn to? Must we turn to ourselves?"

MRCTV spoke to Prince William County Supervisor, Corey Stewart, who said he was blindsided by the news that the federal government had contracted to house illegal aliens in his county.
