ABSTRACT
This article explains that the decision of the leaders of Virginia's Prince William County to vote unanimously to enact another series of tough enforcement measures to deal with illegal immigration earned notice from the White House press secretary. Prince William's Board of Supervisors voted eight to zero to cut certain services now available to illegal immigrants and to create a new police unit to deal exclusively with the alien crisis. The Bush administration is concerned about the trend among local governments to deal with illegal immigration.
