ACLU vs. Hazleton

The ACLU has filed a lawsuit against Hazleton, Pennsylvania, claiming their new law to combat illegal immigration is unconstitutional. Since the St. Louis suburb of Valley Park has a new municipal ordinance based on Hazleton's, I invited ACLU attorney Omar Jadwat onto my KMOX show this afternoon to explain the problem with the law, whether anyone in Hazleton has actually been harmed by it, and how he feels about the English-only aspects of the legislation.

Listen to the conversation here.
