Accomack County is one of only two on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, the somewhat isolated community is located on the southern edge of the peninsula and dotted with towns with quaint names such as Captain’s Cove and Modest Town, that still bare a strong resemblance to Andy Griffith’s “Mayberry.”
While the closest border crossing is 1,800 miles away from the tiny, rural county, illegal aliens wanted for violent crimes comprise 37.5 percent of the fugitives wanted by the Accomack County Sheriff’s Office.
However, “the shore,” as locals call it, is no longer just home to “locals,” but has become a haven for a large number of illegal aliens.
Accomack County is dominated by two industries: agriculture and commercial fishing. Of course, American workers in both of these industries have been nearly entirely replaced by illegal aliens, mostly from Mexico and Central America.
And as is always the case, these so-called ‘willing workers,’ from south of the Border, bring with them a strong criminal element.
The Accomack County Sheriff’s Office currently lists a ‘Most Wanted’ list of eight fugitives, three of whom are in the country illegally.
They are as follows:
-Name: Luis Alberto Vaquez-Zunun
Last known location: Parksley, Virginia
-Name: Juarez Dolman Barrios
Last known location: Onancock, Virginia
Charge(s): Attempted Robbery
-Name: Jose Zuniga
Last known location: Painter, Virginia
Charge(s): Aggravated Sexual Battery
As stated earlier, Virginia’s Eastern Shore has been inundated with illegal aliens, as the farming and fishing industries dominate the shore’s economy. As such, DUIs are all-too common in Accomack County.
In fact, drunk driving by illegal aliens poses so much of a threat in that part of the state that in 2005, the left-leaning Virginia Pilot newspaper ran an in-depth article on the subject entitled simply: “Hispanic laborers driving unregistered vehicles have caused scores of Eastern Shore traffic deaths.”
The article states:
A review of the Virginia State Police auto accident, reports for 2002 through 2004 on the Eastern Shore, also revealed that of the 179 accidents involving ‘Hispanic laborers:’
– Three-fourths of the drivers had no auto insurance – more than four times the national rate for uninsured motorists.
– Nearly all of the vehicles driven by migrants and other laborers were registered to other drivers.
– The number of injuries per accident was about 50 percent higher than the statewide average.
It should be noted that as wages have been driven down by these illegal aliens, both of the Eastern Shore’s two counties (Accomack and Northampton), have become the two poorest counties in the entire Commonwealth of Virginia.
