Senate panel refuses to hear illegal immigration bills | Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/virginia-politics/2011/feb/21/senate-panel-refuses-to-hear-illegal-immigration-b-ar-857646/ - broken link)




The effects of illegal immigration are being felt in communities across Virginia and those who continue to make excuses for unlawfully present persons and neglect their duty to represent their constituents will learn the cost of that inaction," he said in a statement.
"They are acting a bit like Democratic senators in Wisconsin who are in hiding, shirking their duty, when they should actually vote on the bills," he added.

Unless these senators physically get up and leave the state to runaway from voting on this, I don't see an issue with it. Part of the legislative procedure is for controlling parties on committees to allow or disallow bills to pass through. That is the way we work in this country.

Seems to me, any state that adopts an Arizona SB1070 type law, before that law is ruled constitutional is acting frivolous with the state's tax-payers monies.

Passing like legislation now is inviting law suits that the state will have to use state funds to defend. In a time where states are struggling with buget short-falls, proposing such legislation is irresponsible. No wonder the VA state legislature oversight committee refused to consider such a proposal at this time.
