    RICHMOND, Va. Local governments cannot opt out of a federal program that checks the fingerprints of people who are arrested against a database to determine if they are illegal immigrants, the head of the U.S. immigration agency said Friday.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    As much as I hate federalism, and illegal aliens, I agree with the concept, but not the practice. I think this flys smack dab in the face of the Constitution.

    The power should belong to the states, and they should have the choice of what federal intrusion they want.

    As of now the States opt in. Once a State opts in, locals in that State can't opt out.

    OTOH, I agree with you re: the plans to "incorporate" every jurisdiction by 2013.

    However, I suspect that they will use the "Golden Rule" (He who has the gold makes the rule) -- via federal grants, as the feds do in so many cases. They do this to avoid the constitutionality of a "mandate". No one has to. However, if you want federal grants for "x", you must "y."
