Shenandoah is less than 20 miles from Hazleton, which drew national headlines after it passed a law in 2006 cracking down on landlords who rent to illegal immigrants and companies that employ them. Hazleton is appealing a court ruling overturning the law, and Mayor Lou Barletta has made illegal immigration his signature issue as he runs for Congress.

What a bunch of hypocrits, one illegal dead vs. thousands of Americans who have lost their lives to illegal alien predators who shouldn't be in OUR COUNTRY and they have the nerve to raise hell?
