The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia is urging the state police to ignore Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli’s ruling that police can ask people about their immigration status during routine stops.
The civil rights group argued that Cuccinelli’s opinion lacks a legal foundation and presents constitutional and public policy problems.
Where does the ACLU get off on instructing the Virginia police?? This is another runaway un-American organization that should be shut down. It is good to see that the VA police officials have great common sense. They are ignoring the ACLU!!
Cuccinelli issued the advisory opinion Monday at the request of state Delegate Robert G. Marshall. Rebecca K. Glenberg, legal director of the ACLU of Virginia, followed up with a letter to Virginia’s police chiefs Thursday saying the opinion is legally flawed and should be disregarded.
They will stop at nothing to get their way but I think they have met their match in AG Cuccinelli. He’s a fighter!
But so far, Virginia police are ignoring the ACLU, said Dana Schrad, executive director of the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police.
Bravo to the Police Association!
