board of Aldermen enacted ordinances to stop businesses in their community from hiring, and landlords from renting to, illegal aliens. When the court blocked their first ordinance, they revised it – only to be sued again by the ACLU and others. Their second ordinance was blocked and both ordinances will again be in front of the judge in March.
But the city is not backing down:
VALLEY PARK – Aldermen passed Monday night two more ordinances targeting illegal immigrants, even though a judge has blocked enforcement of two previous attempts.
The new ordinances are designed to punish landlords and businesses that hire or rent housing to illegal immigrants. One requires landlords applying for occupancy permits to provide tenants’ names, ages, countries of citizenship and relationships with other tenants. The city would then seek to verify that information before granting occupancy permits.
The other ordinance would deny business licenses and city contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
While our elected officials in Washington pretend there is nothing they can do but accept the millions of illegal aliens in our nation – and reward them with a path to citizenship – this little community is standing by the rule of law and expecting all others, even immigrants, to do the same.
Mayor Jeffery Whitteaker praised the board’s decision, saying mounting litigation costs of about $75,000 to fight the lawsuit have not deterred the city’s efforts to stop illegal immigrants.
“We’re going to hold steadfast and hopefully solve this problem,” Whitteaker said. “We can’t stop now.”
