'I don't know why any legislature would give unfettered power to a Chief Executive. A key supporter of a Virginia bill that would prevent state employees from assisting the federal government’s “unlimited detention” of U.S. citizens is urging the governor to sign the legislation into law.

|Delegate Bob Marshall|
The legislation, penned by Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall, has wide support in the Commonwealth. “Interest groups as politically diverse as the American Civil Liberties Union and the John Birch Society are in opposition to the offending provision of the NDAA 2012, said Whitehead. “To veto the measure would not only be a disservice to the Constitutional rights of Virginians, but would go against the popular will of the people of Virginia.”
