Hazleton City Council in Pennsylvania recently passed an ordinance called the Illegal Immigration Relief Act which imposes $1,000 fines on property owners for each illegal immigrant renting and denies licenses to businesses who employ illegal immigrants. Nowhere is race mentioned. It would have no effect on Hispanics who are legal U.S. residents, so it clearly does NOT discriminate on the basis of race.
But according to the Solons of the Left, it makes Hazleton "the first Nazi city in the country" and this newspaper heads its story: "Hazleton codifies racism". So once again we see Leftists using irrational slurs in an attempt to suppress intelligent discussion and action.
I guess that the mega-correct British Labour Party government must be Nazis too. We read of them:
"Directors of firms employing illegal immigrants could be banned from running companies under reforms drawn up by John Reid"
And what would the loonies say of the Australian practice of putting all illegal immigrants in "detention centres" (jail)?
