This has been a big year for anti-immigrant agitation in Virginia, especially Prince William County. The Washingtpon Post reports that anti-immigrant groups in Virginia are marshaling forces into a new umbrella organization, Save the Old Dominion, that will lobby state lawmakers to place further restrictions on those residing in the state unlawfully. Save the Old Dominion members said they want to coordinate their efforts to avoid a repeat of last year's legislative session, when almost every illegal immigration-related proposal failed.
The name "Save the Old Dominion" harkens back to the days of the Confederacy. I wish that a new, if not improved, name could have been coined.
Here are some of the new immigration groups in Virginia.
