    VA to Follow AZ?

    A Northern Virginia (Prince William County) leader is starting a movement to have the Virginia legislature pass a law similar to Arizona's aimed at cracking down on illegal immigrants in the Commonwealth...

    Board (of supervisors) Chairman Corey A. Stewart (R-At Large) said he will spend the rest of the year lobbying the General Assembly to pass legislation that enhances law enforcement powers to capture, detain and deport illegal aliens; curbs illegal day laboring; and creates specific state penalties for illegal immigrants. He called the effort the "Virginia Rule of Law Campaign."

    Prince William has received national attention for its own crackdown on illegal immigration. The county's law, which was enacted in 2007 and modified in 2008, requires that police officers inquire into the immigration status of all people who are arrested on suspicion of violating a state or local law.
    washingtonpost.com

    Stewart argues that the Arizona law does not target any one group, and is working hard on the possible VA legislation to insure it will pass any legal challenge, if passed...

    Stewart said that he is working on a final draft but that he wants the legislation to direct Virginia law enforcement officials to determine, in any lawful contact, the legal status of an individual. Another key point of the bill, he said, would be to prohibit jurisdictions from calling themselves sanctuaries for illegal immigrants.

    Stewart said his proposal would go further than what Prince William did in 2007. He said the county's law was a success -- that illegal immigrants fled and that overall crime dropped to a 15-year low in 2009.

    there are a few states considering similar legislation. Arizona, out of necessity, took the lead. This is a nationwide problem, that needs nationwide solutions.

    No. Va. represents illegal immigration on a global scale. There is illegal immigrants from just about every country on earth up there.

    No kidding. Had a restaurant owner busted with multiple illegal aliens not too long ago in Franklin, VA.

    Instead of following AZ, I think they bill should say, "Follow Mexican immigration law." It's a lot tougher. Tit for tat.

    I can't wait for Michigan to get their heads out of the sand, and jump on this bandwagon. 'Cause this is the one we need to be on when it comes to this issue. Its obvious the FEDS are found to be incompetant, and derilict in dealing with this.

    Here is to hoping the AZ law catches on and starts a snow ball effect with the rest of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
