BRISTOW, Va. — Corey Stewart, who made his name in politics by implementing what he calls the nation’s “toughest” crackdown on illegal immigration, lives in a house steeped in history.
The top elected official in Virginia’s second-largest locality, Stewart resides in the oldest house in Prince William County, located abruptly off a road lined with typical suburban American homes.
George Washington and his wife, Martha, honeymooned on what is now Stewart’s 25-acre estate, in the house built in 1740.
Thomas Jefferson spent a summer living here. Today an American flag stands tall in the back yard.
Stewart, the Republican chairman of Prince William County’s Board of Supervisors, spoke to The Daily Signal in the Parlor Room of his home for a sit-down interview about an immigration trend that especially bothers him: Thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America have been crossing the U.S-Mexico border illegally — and some are housed temporarily in his jurisdiction.

“If we define an American fascist as one who in case of conflict puts money and power ahead of human beings, then there are undoubtedly several million fascists in the United States. There are probably several hundred thousand if we narrow the definition to include only those who in their search for money and power are ruthless and deceitful.” The Danger of American Fascism, Henry A. Wallace, 1944
