At least the Old Dominion Assembly did something right.

<<The number of immigration bills introduced in the two-month legislative session was the highest in recent years. More than 100 originated from the Republican-controlled House, where many were approved before the Democrat-controlled Senate killed them.

"The Democratic majority in the Senate "recognized that there was some demand and something had to be done. What came out was just above window dressing," said Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II (R-Fairfax), who introduced several immigration measures. "They wanted to pass just enough to try to release a good portion of the political pressure. Their goal was not to accomplish anything."

Bills that failed would have allowed employers to fire workers for misconduct if they speak a language other than English, banned illegal immigrants from public colleges and universities, required that driver's license exams be conducted in English and required that home buyers prove they are in the country legally to qualify for a mortgage.>>

Most of those bills were killed by the Democratic controlled Senate. Thanks a lot you bunch of losers........What the heck is wrong with the democrats????
