County and city leaders from several Virginia jurisdictions have formed a group to push for tougher measures against illegal immigrants, the latest sign that local governments in the state will look for ways to act while immigration reform remains stalled in Congress.

The Coalition on Illegal Aliens will consider the impact of illegal immigrants on residential overcrowding, crime, public services and other quality-of-life concerns while developing proposals for state and local laws. The coalition will also look at measures designed to punish employees who hire illegal immigrants and landlords who house them.

Leaders from across the state hope to capitalize on the momentum created by policies targeting illegal immigrants in Prince William and Loudoun counties and elsewhere, though it's unclear whether the policies will prove to be a deterrent.

All i can say is well done Virginia.

Not even on the ballot yet and the hospitals are already howling about having to play 'good cop/bad cop' here.
