Caring Conservative Migrant Law Ruled Unconstitutional

A federal judge in the United States has ruled as unconstitutional a tough anti-illegal immigration law in the town of Hazleton in Pennsylvania.

Judge James Munley said the law denied rights granted to everyone in the US, whether legally resident or not.

Businesses employing illegal workers would have had their trading licences suspended, while landlords renting to undocumented immigrants faced fines.

The ruling could affect several similar laws awaiting approval across the US. more
