Chairman Whitbeck Congratulates Rep. Comstock on Gang Removal Bill Passage

— Virginia Republicans Committed to Combating Gang Violence —

Today, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-10) and Congressman Bob Goodlatte’s (R-06) bill H.R. 3697 “Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act” passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Once again we have seen a proliferation of gang violence and a growth of gang membership in the Commonwealth. Combating this scourge has been a priority for all Virginia Republicans. Gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie has worked tirelessly, like Congresswoman Comstock, to come up with a plan to make our communities safer.

RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

“As a resident of Northern Virginia and the 10th Congressional District, I’m once again proud to see my Congresswoman, Barbara Comstock, leading and fighting for safety in our communities and to see our Congressional delegation rally around such an important issue in the Commonwealth.”

“It’s wonderful to see the synergy between our Gubernatorial nominee Ed Gillespie and Congresswoman Comstock on this important issue. Ed has a clear vision for combating gang violence and making our communities in the Commonwealth safe, which will be a top prior as our next Governor.”
