ACLU, NILC sue Indiana over immigration law (Matricula Consular cards) - 05/25/11
The American Civil Liberties Union and National Immigration Law Center are suing Indiana over that state's Arizona-style immigration law; press release at . 1. The Indiana law apparently seeks to criminalize cards similar to the Matricula Consular card. I haven't read Indiana's law, but if what the ACLU implies is correct, then Indiana made a mistake. Instead of criminalizing in one way or another the use of the card, they should have just prevented it from being used as official identification. Of course, the ACLU lies: MC cards are basically only of use by illegal aliens. They refer to "...

Appeals court strikes down Hazleton immigration law; what to do - 09/09/10
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has struck down the Hazleton immigration ordinance. That ordinance sought to prevent housing rentals to illegal aliens and to take away the business licenses of companies that employ illegal aliens. Per chief Judge Theodore McKee: "It is ... not our job to sit in judgment of whether state and local frustration about federal immigration policy is warranted. We are, however, required to intervene when states and localities directly undermine the federal objectives embodied in statutes enacted by Congress." Per Omar Jadwat of the American Civil Liberties...

ACLU tries to block 287g program, files FOIA request - 07/15/09
From the ACLU press release at commondreams.org/newswire/2009/07/15-4 The American Civil Liberties Union filed a Freedom of Information Act request Tuesday for new documents governing the continued delegation to state and local law enforcement agencies of federal immigration enforcement authority. The fundamentally flawed program has been associated with serious civil rights abuses and public safety concerns... [references the DHS changing their rules] "No amount of tinkering with the 287(g) program is likely to solve the fact that it threatens public safety and undermines the basic guarantee...

ACLU, PFAW, businesses sue Riverside NJ over immigration law - 10/19/06
Riverside, New Jersey is one of the cities that have adopted "Hazleton-style" ordinances, and like other cities they're being sued by far-left, pro-illegal immigration organizations such as the ACLU. While this does cost those cities money, and the far-left foundations that support those far-left organizations have very deep pockets, at the end of the day the ACLU and their fellow travelers can only file so many suits. In the current case, one of the ACLU's helpers is People for the "American" Way. Let's hope that their legal filings are a bit more precise than their misleading press...
