Virginia Takes Stand Against Federal Government

Editor’s Note – It seems that the only protection the citizens of this country have from an out of control federal government are our state governments.  Arizona and Virginia understand this, putting the welfare of their residents first.

Is Florida up for the fight?  Check back after November 2nd, after all, priorities are priorities and our elected officials have an election to focus on first.

If more states step up on the immigration issue, the far left would no longer be able to polarize Arizona as they are currently doing. 

And, had the Florida Legislature had the will to pass legislation exempting state residents from the healthcare coverage mandate as Virginia did, instead of passing an amendment to the state Constitution, which was tossed from the ballot last week, the residents of this state would still have a chance of being protected.


Federal Judge Denies Obama Administration’s Motion to Dismiss Virginia’s ObamaCare Lawsuit

Virginia Attorney General Rules Police Can Check Immigration Status

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia’s lawsuit challenging the Obama administration’s health care reform law has cleared its first legal hurdle.

U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson on Monday denied the Justice Department’s request to dismiss the lawsuit.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli claims that Congress does not have the authority under the Constitution’s Commerce Clause to require citizens to buy health insurance or pay a penalty.

The Virginia General Assembly passed legislation this year exempting state residents from the coverage mandate. 

And, in a decision that could lay the groundwork for an Arizona-style immigration policy, Virginia’s attorney general said state law enforcement officers are allowed to check the immigration status of anyone “stopped or arrested.” 

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli issued the legal opinion Friday extending that authority to Virginia police in response to an inquiry over whether his state could mirror the policies passed into law in Arizona. 

“It is my opinion that Virginia law enforcement officers, including conservation officers may, like Arizona police officers, inquire into the immigration status of persons stopped or arrested,” he wrote.
