While visiting No Apology, I read the transcript of the Glenn Beck radio show - the segment where Hazelton Mayor Barletta was interviewed. The post is entitled, "Small Town Defender Fights On". Please take the time to read the transcript. It is just so sad and disappointing to see what is going on in our courts.
It is truly incredible how the laws in this country are not being enforced at the will of these so-called "judges", and how the ACLU defends illegal aliens with the strategy of bankrupting communities like Hazelton in order to get their way.
The illegals in this trial against Barletta and Hazelton, would not even face Barletta because they are ... well.. illegal and they are afraid of being arrested!! So Barletta was not even afforded his right to be faced by his accusers! And even more incredulous was that the judge allowed this!
While we have Mayor DeStefano of New Haven handing out ID cards to illegals in order to legitimize them, Hazeltion, PA. has a real man for a Mayor. They have someone who stands up for enforcing the law and his right as a town leader to protect his town and his citizens.
Consider asking your elected officials to enact similar laws as Barletta did for Hazelton, PA - or at least as we head into November find out what your elected officials think of this issue. Rather than aiding and abetting illegal aliens, our elected officials should be doing what they can locally to discourage businesses from hiring them, and so on. And I am sorry - that's not racist - that is enforcing the laws. I don't care what color, religion, ethnicity or nationality someone is - if they are here illegally then they are breaking the law and should be deported. Period.
To that end - if you really want to do something to stop illegal immigration in this country you can start by visiting Mayor Barletta's website at smalltowndefenders.com and send them a donation to help pay for the legal fees. The ACLU has very deep pockets. They know Hazelton does not. But Mayor Barletta is steadfast and plans to take this to the Supreme Court if necessary.
Glenn Beck said this:
I've been reading a lot, a ton on the founding fathers here recently and, you know, they were very, very clear. The federal government should be the weakest part of our government. The local government should be the strongest because the closer you get to the people, the more it is in connection with the people and its will, and the people are speaking. That's why you're seeing communities like yours all the way across the country starting to step in and saying, okay, you know what; the government's not going to do it; we will.If the federal government refuses to act to enforce the laws we have regarding illegal immigration, then the people must act.
I believe that Mayor Barletta is well within his rights - is merely enforcing the laws and I support his actions 100%.
I'll be sending my check out today, to support Mayor Barletta and his town's fight defend it's right to decide how to deal with the illegal immigration problem. I hope you do too.
