APPEALS COURT STRIKES DOWN HAZLETON, PA LAW

Rate this Entry

This is a major setback for the antis and for Kris Kobach, the architect of these laws who has assured city councils that these laws are designed to withstand legal challenges. From the ACLU:



This is a major setback for the antis. From the ACLU:



The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit today issued a sweeping decision striking down as unconstitutional the city of Hazleton's law that would punish landlords and employers who are accused of renting to or hiring anyone the city classifies as an "illegal alien."



The case, Lozano v. Hazleton, has been closely watched across the country because the Hazleton ordinance has served as a model for similar laws nationwide and was challenged by civil rights groups in a lengthy trial. The suit has been underway for more than four years in the federal district and circuit courts. Today's unanimous appeals court decision is the latest legal victory against discriminatory state and local laws that target immigrants and invite racial profiling against Latinos and others who appear foreign. Many cities like Fremont, Nebraska and Summerville, South Carolina have voluntarily tabled or blocked these laws under legal pressure and local opposition.

    As I said, it will be entertaining to see Arapaio and Bartletta run on the same ticket in 2012!

    Greg can this decision be used as a legal precedent in the AZ case on that appeals court, or since the issue was already decided by this court on this part that is similar to the AZ law, the court does not have to re-interpret the law or rule again on this issue? sorry I hope I made sense...

    The case won't control in Arizona, but it will obviously be noticed by the Ninth Circuit which is reviewing SB1070.
