The citizens of Hazleton, PA were dealt a blow by one of the greatest allies a criminal can have, a judge. I was disappointed, but not shocked, to read an article from Reuters via Drudge.
U.S. District Judge James Munley said the city of Hazleton, 100 miles north of Philadelphia, was not allowed to implement a law that would fine businesses that hire illegal immigrants and penalize landlords who rent rooms to them.
“Federal law prohibits Hazleton from enforcing any of the provisions of its ordinances,” Munley wrote in a 206-page opinion following a federal trial in which Hazleton’s law was challenged by civil rights groups.
It is difficult to imagine how some judges sleep at night. This judge’s action against righteousness isn’t as grotesque as the disgusting act of Judge Katherine Savage, who dismissed the case of child rape against Liberian native Mahamu Kanneh because n interpreter who spoke his West African dialect could not be located, however this ruling may have a nationwide effect. This precedent could be used to prevent other local governments from enacting and enforcing laws that punish those that hire and rent to illegal aliens.
The struggle against illegal immigration is obviously more than building the Hunter Fence, even though that would be a wonderful start! The struggle is against the politicians who, for a variety of unjust reasons, seek to bestow legal status on those who are now here and those who would come here illegally. The struggle is against those greedy employers that continue to hire illegals and those anti-sovereignty (for lack of a better descriptive term) judges that enable these employers.
The common sense steps that would go a long way toward facilitating the natural attrition of illegal aliens within our borders are rendered useless by the actions of those entities mentioned above. These types of rulings should serve as proof that our government has become too cumbersome and the bureaucracy seems to damage our nation as much or more than it proves useful!
