“Latino supporters from Allentown, Harrisburg, Scranton and New York converged in Hazleton on Wednesday to oppose the city’s anti-immigration proposal, which they believe has national ramifications. “This is another part of the civil rights movement. That is not just for Hazleton. Hazleton is just a mirror of what’s happening in the nation,”ť Dr. Agapito Lopez, a Hazleton physician, said at the inaugural meeting of the Hazleton Area Latino Taskforce.”

Latino supporters? Things like this are what ties "Mexicans" to Illegal Immigrants. If I were an American Hispanic things like this would really p*ss me off.

Lets see if I understand this correctly.
1. Hazelton is actively enforcing immigration laws. This = civil rights violations?
2. Hazelton requires all employers to verify employess status. Civil rights violations?
3. Hazelton requires alllandlords to verify their renter's status. Civil rights violation?
4. Illegals are not allowed employment in hazelton. Civil rights violation?
Seems like the right civil rights to violate.
Barletta for congress then on to the white house.

But dont worry, they wont be "illegals" longer. When amnesty is passed they will be Americans.

Sincerely,

John McCain and/or Barack Obama
