ACLU Urges Virginia Police to Ignore Attorney General's Immigration Opinion
Fox News ^ | August 5, 2010

The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia is urging the state police to ignore Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli's ruling that police can ask people about their immigration status during routine stops. The civil rights group argued that Cuccinelli's opinion lacks a legal foundation and presents constitutional and public policy problems. Cuccinelli issued the advisory opinion Monday at the request of state Delegate Robert G. Marshall. Rebecca K. Glenberg, legal director of the ACLU of Virginia, followed up with a letter to Virginia's police chiefs Thursday saying the opinion is legally flawed and should be disregarded.

But so far, Virginia police are ignoring the ACLU, said Dana Schrad, executive director of the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police...

"Virginia code is silent and does not prohibit law enforcement from asking about immigration status," Schrad said. "We have to give officers a certain amount of discretion in the field. We don't expect any of this will change procedures."...

Marshall, the legislator who asked for the opinion, represents a county whose crackdowns on its large immigrant population drew national attention in 2007 and 2008. Last week, the chairman of Prince William County's board of supervisors established a political action committee to press for legislation in Virginia similar to the Arizona law....

Rebecca K. Glenberg, legal director of the ACLU of Virginia, on the other hand is simply a defective person.

I wouldn't listen to her Fur Shur, besides it's ACLU of Virginia agitation that led to that Illegal Alien running down and murdering that elderly nun the other day.

When they roll him in on the gurney and hook up the juice, Rebecca should be strapped down there next to him and get a taste of it herself.

The ACLU is largely responsible for the fact that our country is abandoning the rule of law.

Not a legal scholar here, but it sounds like the ACLU is advocating criminal conduct, which itself is a criminal act.

The ACLU is a mortal enemy of this nation. They keep pushing, pushing, and pushing. Will there be a day of reckoning, a day when good men say “No more!” and begin to push back HARD?

I’m constantly amazed at how full of themselves these clowns are. Apparently in their little delusional world, police agencies all over the state are absolutely unable to function until they know what ACLU thinks.

Any reason the ACLU, La Raza, Democrats and other Leftist riff-raff never point this out?

Under Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) any US citizen that knowingly assists an illegal alien, provides them with employment, food, water or shelter has committed a felony.

City, county or State officials that declare their jurisdictions to be "Open Cities, Counties or States are subject to arrest; as are law enforcement agencies who chose not to enforce this law.

Police officers who ignore officials who violate Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) are committing a Section 274 federal felony.

According to Federal Immigration and National Act of 1952, if you live in a city, county or State that refuses to enforce the law for whatever reason, the officials making those rules are financially liable for any crime committed within their jurisdiction by an illegal alien.

They will get whats coming to them.

All it takes is a POTUS who names them as a domestic enemy and encourages people of good will to take care of the problem.

They can call the cops for protection, but I don't think they will get much help.

The people can start by picketing Glenbergs house.

Help Texas watch her borders.
Watch live on 14 cameras and report illegal alien invaders.
Night cams in operation

http://www.blueservo.net/index.php?error=nlg

Does it work? Yes.
Recently caught on cam and reported:
String of illegals running through brush with backpacks
Numerous sightings of boats crossing the river
Numerous vehicles late at night in isolated areas
IMMENSELY satisfying.
