Add Virginia To The Growing List
Bills in General Assembly would target illegal immigrantsAnd so on, and so on...
Although illegal immigration isn't expected to be a front-burner issue during the upcoming General Assembly sessions, several legislators will be pushing significant changes in the law.
"Illegal immigrants are soaking away resources from legal citizens and legal residents," said Del. Jeff Frederick, R-Prince William County. "The more people abuse the laws, the tougher the laws get."
Some delegates are drafting or have already introduced bills related to how the state responds to the increase in those who are here unlawfully.
They include punishing employees who hire illegal immigrants and creating a group to assess exactly how immigration is affecting the state.
