It's Not A "Right"...

To hire illegals, you'd think a smart bunch like the ACLU would know that, if protecting people's "rights" were what they were really after...

VISTA – Two organizations have sued Vista to overturn a controversial day-labor employment ordinance scheduled to take effect next week.

The lawsuit argues that the ordinance is unconstitutional because it violates free speech and equal protection rights. The American Civil Liberties Union and California Rural Legal Assistance Inc. filed the suit in federal court Monday on behalf of three Vista residents.

The plaintiffs also have filed for a temporary restraining order to prevent the ordinance from being enforced once it becomes law July 28.

“Essentially, we think that it violates the rights of employers,” said David Blair-Loy, legal director of the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties.

The Vista City Council passed the ordinance unanimously last month, as dozens of protesters gathered outside City Hall. The ordinance has been supported by the San Diego Minutemen, a group that opposes illegal immigration.
It's not a right to hire people in ths country illegally, perhaps if the ACLU's goal wasn't the destruction of this country, they might understand that.
