Bills would help, hurt undocumented immigrants


Three bills that would help undocumented immigrants, and one that would hurt them, have been introduced in the Virginia General Assembly as state legislators tackle an issue that loomed large during the presidential election.

HB 1857 would protect in-state tuition for undocumented students, while HB 2001 seeks to root out such students from Virginia’s public colleges and universities. HB 1682 would allow undocumented immigrants to get temporary driver’s licenses, as long as they are paying taxes and have auto insurance. Finally, HB 1779 would expand the state’s definition of a hate crime to violence based on someone’s immigration status. > Read more.

"That shows what a nerd I am," she said with a laugh at the childhood memory, "but I've always loved the show and it's always been a dream of mine to be on the show."

Or, perhaps more appropriately: it always had been a dream. > Read more.
