"Federal judge: Law penalizing businesses that hire illegals Ok"



'You are going to see this decision quoted by cities across the country'

The right of a small town in Missouri to deal with the cost and crime caused by the influx of illegal aliens has been upheld by a federal judge who ruled the community's ordinance penalizing local companies that hire undocumented workers is not pre-empted by federal law, does not discriminate against Hispanics and does not violate due-process rights or state law.
The ruling late Thursday by U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber was in favor of Valley Park, Mo., located about 20 miles west of St. Louis.

Valley Park is one of several cities across the U.S. that have attempted to address the problems resulting from illegal immigration and the failure of the federal government to address the issue.

City officials have been in court since 2006 after passing the town's first immigration law fining landlords who rent to illegals and suspending business permits of companies that hire them. The city eventually repealed the rental ordinance but continued to target businesses.

And; many more communities/states will join 'em.

I swear: the growing anti illegal sentiment is in inverse proportion to the Civil Rights movement of 2 generations ago.

As the pro illegal crowd continue to shoot themselves in their collective feet------more and more Americans are demanding that the former be tossed out.
