The message on the wall at 9500 Liberty Street in Manassas, Virginia is a response to the Prince William County "Immigration Resolution."
Passed by the Prince William County Board of Supervisors on July 10th, 2007, the resolution required PWC police offers to ask for proof of citizenship when they have "probable cause" to suspect a person is undocumented. It also denied certain public services to undocumented residents, like drug rehabilitation and care for the elderly.
After civil rights and racial profiling concerns were voiced by the police department, members of the government, and Prince William County citizens, the Immigration Resolution was amended on April 29, 2008, so that immigration status checks take place only AFTER ARREST, and all persons who are arrested are checked, regardless of race, language proficiency, etc.
