A city in California getting tough on illlegal aliens?
From The Las Vegas Sun:
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) – The City Council wants a judge to decide whether it can legally call an election on a measure that would bar illegal immigrants from renting in the city and force day laborers to prove they are legal residents.
The council was set Monday to schedule an election date, but instead decided to ask a judge whether it would be legal to do so.
The initiative would also ban day labor centers; deny permits, contracts and grants to employers who hire illegal immigrants; and require that city business be conducted in English.
A letter from an attorney prompted the council’s action Monday. Dana W. Reed, representing resident Florentino Garza, questioned the formula city officials used to determine how many signatures were needed to put the measure on the ballot.
San Bernardino is a city of nearly 200,000 about 50 miles east of Los Angeles.
Wow! I didn’t think any city in California would even attempt to get tough on illegals. We need to see this spread accross the country like a wild fire!
