Judges Shouldn’t Be “Lifers”

Federal Judge James Munley has temporarily denied Hazelton, PA, the right to enforce a new local law that would:

  1. Fine landlords found to be renting space to illegal aliens
  2. Close down businesses that hire them
  3. Allow legal employees to sue the businesses for employment lost during such a shutdown

Sounds good to me. But says Munley:

“Defendant [ed: Hazelton, PA] offers only vague generalizations about the crime allegedly caused by illegal immigrants but has nothing concrete to back up these claims.”

What about the fact that they’re breaking federal immigration laws? I guess that law isn’t important to His Honor. Maybe it should be.
