    VA Republicans Announce Strong Agenda On Illegals

    VA Republicans Announce Strong Agenda On Illegals

    Ensuring that at least one person on duty in every jail at all times has been certified under federal 287(g) authority (named for the section of federal law that allows more effective cooperation between federal immigration officials and state and local governments). This change means that, upon a positive identification of an illegal alien, there will be a person with federal authority readily available to detain and begin deportation proceedings, after that individual has served his or her sentence.

    No Bail For Illegal Aliens
    Creating a presumption of no bail for any person who has been charged with an offense punishable by jail or prison time and who has been determined (through ICE databases) to be illegally present in the United States. This change will help stop controversial “catch and release

    This is great, but we need to get the Governor to sign-off on it. Let's put some pressure on him to make our views known.
