Crackdown on illegals takes toll in Pennsylvania town

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on November 2, 2006

HAZLETON, Pennsylvania (AP) — Elvis Soto’s variety store used to make money. But few customers have been walking through his door lately, and his merchandise — calling cards, cell phones, car stereos, clothing — is collecting dust on the shelves.

With bills mounting, Soto might have to take another job to stay afloat financially, and may even close the store.

On Wednesday, a tough, first-of-its-kind law targeting illegal immigrants was to take effect in this small hillside city in northeastern Pennsylvania. A federal judge on Tuesday blocked the measure, but the evidence suggests many Hispanics — illegal or otherwise — have already left.

Judge blocks town’s ban on immigrants

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (Reuters) — A federal judge Tuesday temporarily barred Hazleton, Pennsylvania, from implementing a law designed to prevent illegal immigrants from living in the town.

Judge James Munley of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania issued a temporary restraining order against Hazleton City Council, preventing it from enforcing its Illegal Immigration Relief Act Ordinance.

The measure has become a model for other U.S. towns that blame illegal immigrants for a range of social problems.

The law, which had been scheduled to take effect Wednesday, would fine landlords found to be renting space to illegal aliens, close down businesses that hire them, and allow legal employees to sue the businesses for employment lost during such a shutdown. A related law also establishes English as the town’s official language.

The restraining order is valid until November 14.

Judges now put the needs of the politicians above the needs of the American people. Instead of fighting illegal immigration, judges and politicians want to turn a blind eye in exchange for votes. Judges and politicians are supposed to protect Americans from criminals that try to come in to America illegally.
