WASHINGTON - An Arkansas-based Ku Klux Klan group has added a new twist to an already rancorous debate over illegal immigration in northern Virginia. The Klan group from Compton in northern Arkansas' Newton County distributed anti-immigration fliers that have drawn condemnation from people on both sides of the issue.
The literature arrived two months after Prince William County passed a resolution that seeks to deny many public services to undocumented immigrants and boost the immigration enforcement powers of county police. Latino groups have protested the measure with a weeklong boycott of nonimmigrant businesses and a march.
The group Help Save Manassas backed the resolution. Group leader Greg Letiecq says the issue brought out extremists on both sides of the issue. He calls the Klan's message "goofy."
