The genie is out of the bottle... What Mayor Barlotta/Hazleton started will spread across the country, in spite of the baseless cries of racism.

The only thing that these laws state is that the cities will not be knowingly ignore those who will break the law. Come legally, and you're welcome!

Great idea by the folks in Hazelton and now in Allentown. Hopefully more will do the same and get this illegal immigration under control now.

As long as companies are hiring LEGAL Americans, and as long as landlords are renting to LEGAL Americans, no one should have a problem with it. But if they're ILLEGAL ... everyone should have a problem with it...even these politicians, who apparently have a problem supporting the citizens of their town who obviously supported them!

If you don't have a town full of illegals, what's the problem with enacting and enforcing the laws...all this talk of 'racism' is sickening...the operative word is ILLEGAL.

Actually, Puerto Ricans are not "American" they are living in a provence of America and they can travel into this country without a passport, but they pay no taxes and they cannot vote. There is a big difference.

I do agree that the problem is with Illegal Aliens. This issue is HUGE. In my opinion, it's as big a problem as the war.

Illegal Immigration is a serious problem, Citizens are being murders, robbed, and raped. there were american citizens killed in the first 8 months of 2006, then soldiers fighting over seas in the past 4 years. We are at war, we are being invaded. americans should get their heads out of the asses before it's too late.

Join your local minutemen group, or someone who is willing to help fight this invasion. this nation is fastly becoming a 3 world tolet. this is not about civil rights, I'm a black person who still face discrimination, that's a part of life, even white people are discriminated against, hispanics have jumped over the back of the civil rihgts movement, and have claimed the right to invade. They are discriminating against all of america. with the help of the american communist party, and the aclu. we must stop the aclu, and the illegal immigrants in their track, they both should be deported to Atzland de mexico.

Sorry, Deb. WRONG! Puerto Ricans are American citizens.They were granted citizenship in 1917 by an Act of Congress. They pay Social Security taxes, fight and die in our wars (65 to date in Iraq). It is true they do not pay federal income tax because they are a territory of the US, not a "provence (sic)". When they reside in ANY state of the Union, they can vote in local, state and Federal elections legally. I suppose you would not see Puerto Ricans as being equal to any uther American.

Illegal invaders. Where can we do these things? What laws are OK for us to constantly break? We are people who don't want to do these things. We sure don't want this crap going on where we live.
We already said, "STOP THIS ILLEGAL INVASION." What happened to our government representing us citizens. What happened that ALL (100%) citizens are not demanding this illegal mess be stopped?
This our home. Why is it always about these LOSER Hispanics. Can read, can't write, can't speak....on and on and all BAD. Of all the millions here we don't here about anybody else. Proof they are a problem:they are a disease spreading.
