Virginia Congressmen Support 287(g) Authority for State Police.

Three Virginia Congressmen have announced their support for Governor McDonnell's request to allow state troopers to act as immigration and customs agents.  In an August 18, 2010 letter to Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-VA), Rep. Robert J. Wittman (R-VA) and Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA) stated that the "proposed partnership between the Department of Homeland Security and the Commonwealth of Virginia will improve information sharing, leverage federal and state resources, and above all, contribute to improved public safety."
