Even over the spineless maneuverings of their governor, Virginia is leading the way in stemming the illegal immigration tide -
In January, The Washington Post reported, "The General Assembly passed the (driver's license) bill last year after reports surfaced that several of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists illegally obtained Virginia licenses and then used them as proof of identification at airports and flight schools."
In the first three business days after the new law, Virginia's Department of Motor Vehicles turned more than 3,000 people away - and those driver's license denials have been steadily growing since the inception of the law.
It's a start; and bills have been passed to deny illegals same-state tuition to state colleges and unis, to limit Medicaid for 'em, and other measures. But then again you've got the pussy-footing Gov. Warner and his multi-culti BS -
In the fall of 2003, I was pleased to establish through executive order a Latino Advisory Board to promote the development of economic, professional, cultural, educational and government links between the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Latino community in Virginia and Latin America. This legislation creates a permanent Latino Advisory Commission, appointed by the governor, to be composed of 21 citizen members, of whom at least 15 must be of Latino descent. "In addition, secretaries of the Commonwealth, Commerce and Trade, Education, Health and Human Resources, Public Safety and Transportation, or their designees, also will serve on the panel. This bill takes effect Oct. 15, 2005, when the executive order creating the current Latino Advisory Board expires. I am pleased to sign this measure into law."
You know, I'd like to have California do something similar, like a Lesbian Advisory Board in Abstentia (LABIA) (I, of course, would be the only male "member").
