Virginia's 1070

From Roz Helderman, a WaPo blogger: "Law enforcement officials in Virginia can inquire into the immigration status of those they stop or arrest -- just as they can under a controversial new immigration law in Arizona -- Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has ruled in an official legal opinion.

Written in response to a request for legal advice from Del. Bob Marshall (R-Prince William), Cuccinelli ruled that police officers and other legal authorities can look into the immigration status of anyone stopped or arrested."

Here's a copy of the letter from Attorney General Cuccinelli to Delegate Marshall.
