Illegal immigration suit

The ACLU and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund have filed suit against the City of Farmers Branch, Texas alleging that its ordinance prohibiting renting to illegal immigrants is unconstitutional.

My response- well, duh. It is discriminatory- it is a two-bit jerkwater town trying to set immigration policy on its own, and it is just racist, unlike a similar ordinance in Hazleton, Pennsylvania that apparently also applies to Santa Claus.

NOTE: The town fathers in Hazleton have referred the above website to the police for investigation, because it seeks donations, presumably to defray the costs or the domain and hosting. Sheesh, some people have no sense of humor- particularly when calling attention to their bigotry and foolishness.
