Fairfax moves toward more affordable housing, pay raises with new budget
By Antonio Olivo

Supervisor Jeff C. McKay (D-Lee), who co-sponsored the measure with Supervisor John W. Foust (D-Dranesville), said Fairfax County has a moral imperative to help immigrant residents who face the prospect of being forced out of the country at a time when the Trump administration is escalating its immigration enforcement. “Families are being divided almost daily in Fairfax County,” said McKay, referring to data compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University showing that about 12,000 Fairfax County residents were in deportation proceedings late last year. How the local government responds to the immigration crackdown “has moral implications for the kind of county we want to be,” McKay said.
