Virginia’s fight against health care reform to go to court.
They also seem to be supporting Arizona’s stance on enforcing immigration laws.
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is having quite a day. As Todd Gaziano explains, a federal district court denied the U.S. Justice Department’s request that the court dismiss the lawsuit Cuccinelli filed on behalf of the citizens of Virginia against the unconstitutional mandates in Obamacare.
News also broke today that Cuccinelli issued an official advisory opinion on July 30 that was another shot across the bow of the Obama Administration in the ongoing fight over enforcement of federal immigration laws.
In response to an inquiry from a state representative, Cuccinelli advised all Virginia law enforcement officers that, just like Arizona police officers, they can “inquire into the immigration status of persons stopped or arrested.” Moreover, local officers can arrest any individual who has “violated a criminal law of the United States, including a criminal violation of the immigration laws.”
Bravo Ken Cuccinelli!!
I would say this is the most insane, ridiculous concept that has come out of the San Francisco in a long time.
But what do you expect from the city that has declared itself a sanctuary city for illegal aliens? Or the city that shuttles illegal drug lords around to bypass federal authorities.
At least they look to be backtracking on the sanctuary city now that they are entering the national fingerprinting program.
What I am thinking is that this is quite the example of bringing the mountain to Mohammed. All these illegal aliens lining up to register themselves to vote and get their names (and addresses) on a list. How convenient!!

Being of Greek heritage myself, I especially loved this one. For all the good Greek values Jim seems to have turned his back on, I applaud Diane Finley for letting Jim know how much of a hypocrite he is.
Well done Minister!!
