Virginia Attorney General Rules Police Can Check Immigration Status

FOXNews.com -

Virginia Attorney General Rules Police Can Check Immigration Status: "In a decision that could lay the groundwork for an Arizona-style immigration policy, Virginia's attorney general said state law enforcement officers are allowed to check the immigration status of anyone 'stopped or arrested.'
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli issued the legal opinion Friday extending that authority to Virginia police in response to an inquiry over whether his state could mirror the policies passed into law in Arizona."
