Va. Governor Continues Northern Virginia Outreach

By Jonathan Wilson

Virginia's Governor Bob McDonnell continues his outreach efforts in the Northern part of the state today. This morning he'll be in Prince William County, where illegal immigration continues to be the hottest topic for local leaders.

McDonnell is addressing the Prince William County Chamber of Commerce Breakfast. His visit to the county comes just as another high ranking state leader, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, revealed he has been meeting with four state delegates from Prince William to discuss legislative initiatives to strengthen enforcement of immigration laws. Cuccinelli says he and the delegates, all Republicans, expect to propose a comprehensive package of bills and policy initiatives.

Three years ago Prince William County enacted some of the strictest anti-illegal-immigration policies in the country. The county's board of supervisors chair, Corey Stewart, is currently leading a campaign urging state lawmakers to adopt policies based on Arizona's controversial new immigration law.

After Prince William County, Governor McDonnell will also stop in Alexandria and Arlington today, and will hold a town hall meeting in Herndon at 7 pm tonight.
