    Cracking down on illegal immigration: The Missouri way | The Economist



    VALLEY PARK, a small suburb of St Louis perched on the banks of the Meramec river, seems an odd place for a fight over illegal immigration. Although there are surely some illegals about, as there are in most parts of America, there is no visible community of outsiders or labour-intensive industries to lure them. But since 2006, when Valley Park passed legislation that outlawed the hiring of illegal aliens or renting to them, the battle has raged. On June 5th the federal court of appeals upheld the townÂ’s ban on hiring illegal immigrants. This has opened the door to the enactment of similar laws across the country

    this little town is fighting illegals as hard as they can....they are still fighting to ban renting to illegals....interesting article
