    They won't be laughed out of court. They'll win. Hazelton, Pennsylvania passed a law just like this in 2006 and somebody sued and a federal judge ruled the ordinance unconstitutional.

    If I recall there was a town outside of Dallas that passed a law like this and it was upheld. So, I think it depends on how it was constructed.

    Course, we could just deport the illegals filing suit. If they aren't illegal, they don't have standing.

    We could hold the judges grandchildren over a bridge to help them make the proper decision.

    I strongly doubt it's a group of illegals filing this suit. Their employers, most likely.

    That judge should be disbarred for contributing to a crime.

    From a strictly libertarian perspective there is nothing wrong with this apart from the fact that someone made it a mean spirited kneejerk law. On the other hand, where do you want your illegals living? In the sewer or on the streets perhaps? Doesn't make a lot sense and creates a few uninentional consequences.
