U.S. District Judge Decisively Upholds the Right of Cities to Enforece Immigration Laws

Here's what the Dallas Morning News isn't reporting on, choosing instead to focus on the racial politics of beans: In a landmark ruling handed down on January 31, U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber decisively upheld the right of local governments to enforce laws against illegal immigration by denying business licenses to employers who hire illegal aliens. Judge Webbers ruling rejected every argument presented by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund challenging Valley Parks authority to suspend the licenses of businesses that employ illegal aliens.

Lead Counsel for Valley Park is Kris Kobach, who recently consulted on drafting Farmers Branch Oridnance 2952.

You can read more about it here and here.

UPDATE: THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS DID MENTION THIS RULING IN FRIDAY'S PAPER.

Have a great weekend,
Tim Scott
