Virginia county chairman wants Arizona illegal immigration law in Virginia

WOODBRIDGE, Va. - Prince William County's Chairman of the Board of Supervisors wants Virginia immigration law to be a lot like Arizona's. Corey Stewart has started an online petition and a Facebook page for his "Rule of Law Campaign.” He says the county's controversial crackdown three years ago simply sent violators to other counties in the state. He believes the political climate is right. But opponents say Prince William County's crackdown had to be watered down to pass constitutional muster. They say immigration reform is needed but any new law should wait to see the outcome of the law in Arizona. It already faces a handful of legal challenges and the feds are also threatening to take the state to court. LINK: www.coreystewart.com/ruleoflaw
