More bad news from the Reconquista Front. I’ve been following this case pretty closely and as expected, once again a black-robed tyrant runs roughshod over the 10th Amendment.

US judge rules town’s anti-immigrant laws unconstitutional

A US federal judge on Thursday ruled that a small town’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigrants were unconstitutional, in a blow to similar laws adopted across much of the United States.

Judge James Munley ruled that Hazleton, a town of some 30,000 people in rural Pennsylvania, did not have the right to enact a law punishing businesses for employing illegal immigrants or landlords for renting them property.

How dare the City government lift so much as a finger to save itself from an invasion of de-facto felons.

The Illegal Immigration Relief Act was adopted last year, but has been in limbo ever since due to legal challenges posed by civil rights activists.

“Federal law prohibits Hazleton from enforcing any of the provisions of its ordinances,” Munley wrote in his 206-page decision.

206 pages of legalese justifying that which can’t possibly be justified except by judicial fiat. I’m sure his copying machine took at least an hour to reproduce La Raza’s amicus curiea briefing for the subversion and shredding of the constitution.

“Hazleton, in its zeal to control the presence of a group deemed undesirable, violated the rights of such people, as well as others within the community,” he added.

“Even if federal law did not conflict with Hazleton’s measures, the city could not enact an ordinance that violates rights the constitution guarantees to every person in the United States, whether legal resident or not.”

Obviously Judge AssMunchley also took the Gitmo Seminar™ for conferring constitutional rights on illegal aliens. Those zealous, xenophobic gringos can’t be allowed to control criminals and miscreants, doing the jobs that no American will do.

Since 2000, Hazleton’s population has swelled from 23,000 to an estimated 30-33,000, fed largely by an influx of Latino families, many from the New York and New Jersey areas, seeking affordable housing and better paid jobs.

Hazleton’s Republican mayor Louis Barletta reportedly accused illegal immigrants of “destroying the city,” and said he wanted Hazleton to be “one the most difficult places in America for illegal immigrants.”

For the math-deficient libtards out there, this small city has experienced a roughly 33% increase in population, with an explosion in crime and devastating increases in cost of services. Mayor Barletta spoke before a Senate Judiciary Hearing last year very eloquently on the situation in his city: Hazelton Mayor Barletta speaks at Senate Judiciary hearing on immigration reform. A number of other municipalities throughout the country have been watching this case as it proceeded, considering similar laws. Who was behind the push to overturn the city fathers acting rationally to save their community? Of course, the Pennsylvania Ass Crack Lickers Union. The usual suspects, as always.

But Munley said Barletta had overstepped his authority.

“Whatever frustrations officials of the city of Hazleton may feel about the current state of federal immigration enforcement, the nature of the political system in the United States prohibits the city from enacting ordinances that disrupt a carefully drawn federal statutory scheme.”

Ever since Hazleton passed its law last year, dozens of towns across the United States have sought to introduce similar legislation. It was unclear immediately how Thursday’s ruling would affect other laws.

How dare Hazelton begin disrupting the carefully drawn federal scheme to open our borders and wallets to anyone strolling across a non-existent fence. The real question is: Would Judge Manley let that ‘constitutionally protected’ group of felons live in his basement or garage?

The Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform immediately welcomed the ruling as a victory for the rule of law, fairness and equality.

“This ruling sends a clear message that the Hazleton ordinance, and other similar anti-immigrant laws around the country, are unconstitutional and will not be allowed to stand,” the group’s campaign manager Clarissa Martinez said.

Where’s the fairness for the citizen-taxpayers of Hazelton already murdered by the invading hordes? The ruling makes a mockery of the Rule of Law and the Constitution.

Judge James Martin Manley supporting illegals everywhere, I’m sure he’ll have a place of honor in the Reconquista Hall of Fame. Appointed to his dictatorial position by *drum roll* William *where’s da wimmin* Jefferson Clintoon. Surprised? I didn’t think so. The gift, like herpes, that keeps on giving.

That “RESET” button is looking better all the time, isn’t it?

    We were supposed to have three branches of government, each balancing out the other two. Sadly, we have one branch which is only concerned in serving their own interests, another which seems to be (with the exception of the WOT)completely oblivious to the needs, wants, desires of it’s base, and the third, up for grabs as far as how it interprets the meaning and intent of the Constitution along with how / if / when they can create law by judicial fiat.

    So, which one of us gets to hit the reset button first??

    “Even if federal law did not conflict with Hazleton’s measures, the city could not enact an ordinance that violates rights the constitution guarantees to every person in the United States, whether legal resident or not.”

    On the one hand, I happen to believe that the Constitution applies to every person in the US — illegal or otherwise. However, if there is a law that prohibits people from being here illegally, and another law that prohibits employers from hiring and landlords from renting housing to anyone committing a crime, then that should be perfectly legal within the bounds of the constitution — as long as it is applied evenly.

    As far as I can decipher — and I’d like to consider myself more than familiar with the Constitution — there is no constitutional “right” to a job or housing.

    You just don’t like “Brown skinned people

    I love brown skinned people, black skinned people, yellow skinned people, white skinned people, green skinned people, and every other color skinned people.

    Illegals on the other hand…

    Here’s the deal: get in line, go through the processes, pass your tests, and then you can become a citizen, like my ancestors did, like Misha did, like a lot of other people and ancestors did.

    You want to come in the dead of night across the border, illegally, sorry, nice try, but we have some lovely parting gifts.

    If you are here illegally, then you need to go. It is much like you being in my living room when I get home from work. If you don’t have my permission to be in my living room, then you are illegal and must either leave or be removed.

    (yes, I am sure that some of you would love to have something to shoot at in that scenario, and I’m pretty sure that if I found someone in MY living room, there wouldn’t be much left to shoot.)

    Disclaimer: What follows is a prediction, not necessarily an endorsement.

    I think we are getting very close to the time when the citizens of the US are going to reach the exasperated conclusion that they can no longer rely on their elected officials or the courts to maintain the integrity of this nation. Ergo, having exhausted the ballot box and the jury box, they will move on to the next logical step to resolve the problem. And it won’t be pretty. :em96:

    I’m not saying I like this idea, but we can’t allow anyone to say they weren’t warned.

    OK, can someone please point me to the part of the Constitution that says SPECIFICALLY that illegal immigrants can be afforded ANY rights AT ALL under its provisions?

    I will never understand why all these groups of AMERICANS want to defend people that are here illegally! It is just ridiculous! These people are being guaranteed housing and jobs that I can’t even get!

    A few years ago the Honeywell friction materials plant was hiring for about 25 temporary positions. I applied and interviewed. They hired ALL Mexicans! Where the fuck is my job?

    Now jobs like I have worked in the past, like at auto parts stores have started REQUIRING bi-lingual (Spanish speaking)people. WTF???

    The Constitution says no person may be deprived of the “due process of law.” The Supreme Court has said that protection extends to people that have entered the country illegally.

    I would agree with DukeFenton’s comment #14.

    The defeat of the amnesty bill may have slowed down the NAU agenda, but it hasn’t stopped it. One way or another, Bush, Kennedy, et al are determined to shove this destruction of our sovereignty down our throats. They couldn’t do it through the House, so now the judicial is being used to bully us at the state and local level. It makes no sense otherwise. How can a local municipality be accused of denying “rights” to a group of lawbreakers who are in the country illegally and technically have no rights?

    …the nature of the political system in the United States prohibits the city from enacting ordinances that disrupt a carefully drawn federal statutory scheme.

    Bloody doublespeak which in essence is telling us, the American people, to go to hell. We got the shamnesty bill defeated and the Feds are laughing at us, because it doesn’t matter anyway. “Carefully drawn federal statutory scheme” says it all.

    I am sick of the anchor babies, we will have to pay about 5000 by the time I have my baby in September since we dont have insurance. Lucky or unlucky for me my husband makes good money and we don’t qualify for medicaid, which we would not take anyway. We will manage somehow.

    Exactly the point. It’s a normal fallback position for the legislative branch, when they can’t rally enough support to let the judicial branch carry their water.

    My earlier post, I Wouldn’t Hold My Breath, establishes another way for the administration to get what they really want, by half-hearted proposals and executive orders almost guaranteed to be overturned by the bench. They can shrug their shoulders publicly and walk away with a smirk at their cleverness.

    I hope they do ignore the courts ruling. What would they do? Send in the ATF to monitor every situation? What if the landlords and business owners started using contracts that said you had to be a citizen or have a visa to get a job or rent from them in specific language?

    What would the court do then? Tell them they can’t word contracts how they want?

    And lift their collective middle fingers at us and say, “Go do something about it.”

    This is exactly what happened when the good people of California voted for the proposition to deny benefits to illegals and that was promptly overturned by a Fed Circuit judge. Can’t remember whether it was during the Klintonista reign or Bush’s.

    That was prop 187 in ‘94. It passed, fifty-nine to forty-one percent. All but eight counties supported, those eight being in the SFO bay area. I voted for it. A typical tower of babel left wing judge, Judge Pfaelzer, invalidated it on the grounds of it being a federal responsibility. It would appear these folks remain hellbent to destroy this country or drive it into a civil war. It does make it easier for one to select their targets……..
