Study Shows Effectiveness of Prince William Enforcement Policy

"Prince William County's controversial immigration policy appears to have had some effect, as the growth of the county's Hispanic population now lags behind that of other jurisdictions, a report from the University of Virginia states," the Washington Post reports.

"The three-year, $385,000 study - released Tuesday by the university's Center for Survey Research - also found that the county's noncitizen Hispanic population, legal and illegal, dropped by 7,700 from 2006 to 2008, and that illegal immigrants accounted for 2,000 to 6,000 of that decline."

Durham City Council Recognizes Matricula Cards

"The Durham City Council voted on Monday in favor of police accepting identification issued by the Mexican government as legal ID. The resolution, which passed 5-2, cited IDs like the Matricula Consular. During the meeting, the council heard from members of the community," WRAL reported.

"Some argued that the ID cards, which are issued by the Mexican government to nationals living in other countries, are an important way for some to establish identity. 'It's one way you can show who you are, so it's a security issue actually,' Pila Rocha-Goldberg said."

Calif. Court Upholds In-State Tuition Policy

"The state Supreme Court on Monday upheld California's practice of allowing illegal immigrants to pay in-state fees at public colleges and universities," the Fresno Bee reported.

"Had the high court ruled the law unconstitutional, the University of California and California State University systems would have been forced to repay out-of-state fees to thousands of students from other parts of the nation."

"'California has managed to find a loophole in federal law,' [FAIR spokesman Ira Mehlman] said, noting that AB 540 is costing California taxpayers millions of dollars in lost revenue. Meantime, state officials hike college fees and cut admissions. 'While the law benefits illegal immigrants, it is inflicting pain on everyone else.'"
