Virginia County Moves Forward With Illegal Immigrant Measure

October 17, 2007

Prince William County in northern Virginia is moving forward with a measure to deny services to illegal immigrants.

They postponed the matter of how to secure long-term funding for the plan, which includes allowing police to check the residency status of anyone arrested in the county and improve cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

More than 1,200 people packed the county government complex in
Woodbridge and the streets outside Wednesday night and about 400
signed up to address the supervisors during the public comment
period.

Supervisors were supposed to vote on the restrictions two weeks
ago, but put off the vote while they studied the county's budget situation.
