The Virginia State Crime Commission has decided it's not feasible to deny bail to every illegal alien accused of a crime.
Commission leaders said Thursday that they'll meet with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to draft a list of offenses that would warrant automatically denying bail to illegal immigrants.
Commission chairman David Albo of Fairfax County said you couldn't build enough jails to detain every illegal alien arrested for minor offenses like being drunk in public. The goal of the no-bail proposal is to keep illegals from fleeing to avoid deportation after trial.
The proposal is one of several dealing with illegal immigration that the commission will recommend to the 2008 General Assembly.
