    Once again, a liberal Judge has tossed out the votes of the people and allows illegals to go unchecked.

    Now, businesses and housing can't discriminate against people who are in this country illegally.


    Judge Blocks City's Ordinances Against Illegal Immigration

    A federal judge issued a permanent injunction yesterday against restrictive anti-illegal-immigration ordinances in Hazleton, Pa., a city described by its mayor as "the toughest place on illegal immigrants in America."

    In a strongly worded opinion handed down at the U.S. District Court in Scranton, Pa., Judge James M. Munley ruled that federal law "prohibits Hazleton from enforcing any of the provisions of its ordinances," which impose a $1,000-per-day fine on landlords who rent to illegal immigrants, revoke the business license of any employer who hires them, declare English as the official language and bar city employees from translating documents to another language without approval.

    Civil liberties organizations sued on behalf of illegal and legal immigrant plaintiffs, including the Hazleton Hispanic Business Association, saying that the city infringed on the federal government's sole authority to regulate immigration.

    The groups hailed the ruling as a historic victory for the city's Latino residents, as well as a warning to state and local governments that copied Hazleton's ordinances and to opponents of illegal immigration, who Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said "dupe local officials into adopting bad public policy that won't stand up in court."

    But the opponents vowed to appeal the decision and to continue the fight to the Supreme Court, if necessary. "Attorneys have already drafted appeal briefs," said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Seeking to severely restrict immigration, the group strongly supported Hazleton's ordinances.

    In a statement, Hazleton Mayor Louis J. Barletta said: "This fight is far from over. I have said it many times before: Hazleton is not going to back down. We are discouraged to see a federal judge has decided -- wrongly, we believe -- that Hazleton and cities like it around the nation cannot enact legislation to protect their citizens, their services, and their budgets."

    Hazleton made national headlines last year by passing some of the nation's strictest ordinances against illegal immigration, saying that illegal immigrants were draining city coffers but without producing evidence. About 100 similar measures were passed nationwide, some of which have been successfully challenged by immigration supporters, civil rights advocates said.

    That's bullshit, and it is in direct contradiction to the law. By definition, illegal immigrants have no "status" but that of illegal immigrants, and are entitled to NOTHING.

    The only thing illegals are entitled to is to be sent back to their home country and to remain silent when arrested

    Of course the anti-American ACLU is right smack in the middle of this.

    Yep, they aren't 'victims' which seems to be the new spin.

    I sure don't know what the answers are, don't really know what the questions are, but I DO know what is facing this nation, and that is an invasion.

    At this point in time the "native Americans" are losing, sound familiar?

    History DOES repeat itself..............Deal with it.:eusa_hand:

    Another example of how the ACLU is using our own Constitution against us...and its perfectly legal...the federal government refusing to enforce the laws it has written and interrupted to prevent local government from enforcing federal law.... a catch 22 if ever I saw one.....the ACLU is slick...and has the lefties believing it works to enforce our....get that OUR civil rights, while in reality it destroys OUR civil rights....

    Hunting licenses at the broders. I guarantee it would stop illegals and terrorists alike from crossing. Do you know what mexico does to the illegals coming from south america trying to get to america?? There immigrants are beaten raped robbed and more. This judge needs to be deported or at least kicked off the bench.
