Hazleton Ordinance, U.S. Law May Conflict

"The city of Hazleton may have overstepped its authority in passing a tough law designed to curb illegal immigration, a congressional agency has found. The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service said that the town, in the northeast part of the state, appears to have intruded into an area covered by federal law with its Illegal Immigration Relief Act Ordinance, which was passed by the City Council last week." Los Angeles Times, July 21, 2006.
