The Hammer Falls on Illegals in Virginia. Lawmaker: They Should “Be Afraid.”

The Old Dominion has lowered the boom on illegals. Flush ‘em out baby! From the Washington Post.

A year after Prince William County launched a crackdown on illegal immigrants, Virginia has implemented a law that requires something similar for every jurisdiction in the state. Jail officials are now required to notify federal authorities of all foreign-born inmates regardless of their immigration status.The little-noticed law went into effect July 1 and aims to make every corner of the state as unwelcoming as Prince William for illegal immigrants charged with crimes.“With our new law, these people who are here illegally should be afraid of living anywhere in Virginia right now,” said Del. David B. Albo (R-Fairfax), who helped write the law and chairs the state’s crime commission. “If you’re here illegally, it’s not any scarier to live in Prince William than in any other county.” Prince William and about 60 other jurisdictions nationwide had previously joined in a separate partnership with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to identify immigrants who have committed crimes. But now, under the Virginia law, officials across the state have begun routinely filing similar reports to the same federal authorities that Prince William does. Under the state law, local jails probably will spend a fraction of the $10.5 million Prince Willliam has budgeted over the next five years for the ICE partnership.

If Congress won’t do their job, then states like Virginia will take matters into their own hands, and the liberals in the sanctuary states can pay for all their brand new residents when they arrive.
