Keep up the fight Lou!

I really hope he wins this fight and more cities start to enact this throughout the country.

A trial opening Monday pits Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta, who says illegal immigrants are destroying the quality of life in his small northeastern Pennsylvania city, against the ACLU and Hispanic groups who contend that the new rules are unconstitutional.

The Irony of all of this is that the "ACLU" is supposed to be the AMERICAN Civil Liberties Union. But the people they are defending are NOT LEGAL US CITIZENS!

The Hazleton changes were prompted by a number of high-profile crimes involving illegal immigrants. Two illegal immigrants from the Dominican Republic were charged in May 2006 with shooting and killing a 29-year-old man, and a 14-year-old boy was arrested for firing a gun at a playground.

In court papers, Hazleton said illegal immigrants have committed at least 47 crimes since last spring, consuming much of the city's police overtime budget. Illegal immigrants were the subject of one-third of all drug arrests in 2005, and they have driven up the costs of health care and education, the city said.

47 Crimes in a city of 20,000. Think of the number of crimes that are committed in cities like LA, Houston and NYC because of illegal immigrants coming in like they own the place.

Cesar Perales, president of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, said at a news conference Sunday in Hazleton that most Latinos are in town legally, noting that Puerto Ricans are American citizens.

The ordinance turns neighbor against neighbor, Perales said, because residents who suspect someone is an illegal immigrant can report them to city officials.

LOL.. The same retarded mentality that keeps drug dealers on the streets.
Putting neighbor against neighbor. But you know what. If my neighbor is a menace to society or a problem in the neighborhood. Dudes GOT to go.

Why is this so damn difficult to get through peoples skulls?
