Illegal immigrants in public colleges
Peace pre-filed a bill to be sure those who are in the United States illegally are not admitted to public colleges in Virginia.
“There’s wide-spread sentiment that public benefit should not be going to those who are here illegally,” Peace said.
Peace said he is sponsoring the bill to ensure taxpayers are receiving the benefits of the tax dollars they pay into the state’s institutions of higher learning.
“We’re not trying to be mean-spirited here,” he said. “We’re trying to open our doors to Virginians."
Peace is running for re-election to the District 97 seat of the Virginia House of Delegates. He is unopposed in the August 23 primary and the November 8 general election.
In 2009, Peace was re-elected to the Virginia House of Delegates.
