Pennsylvania Town Enacts Laws Against Undocumented Workers

PENNSYLVANIA TOWN ENACTS LAWS AGAINST UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS. Hazelton, PA enacted one of the strictest laws in the nation, requiring that landlords pay fines of $1,000 for each undocumented immigrant found renting their properties and businesses could lose their licenses if they were found to employ an undocumented worker. Similar measures have been proposed in Escondido and San Bernardino, CA and Palm Bay and Avon Park Florida. According to Immigration Law Expert, Eli Kantor, these laws are illegal, since they are preempted by the Federal government's power to regulate immigration.
