Federal chamber against IIRA
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has sided with plaintiffs in the suit against Hazleton’s Illegal Immigration Relief Act.
The federal chamber filed a brief on behalf of plaintiffs in the case in U.S. Middle District Court in Scranton Monday afternoon.
Text of the brief was not available Monday night.
But City Council President Joe Yannuzzi said he received a call about the filing Monday evening.
“I was very disturbed over it,” Yannuzzi said. “I’m a businessman for years and I understand how it works. But I didn’t think the (U.S. Chamber) would do that.”
Yannuzzi underscored that the U.S. Chamber, not the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, filed the brief. He noted that the local chamber has taken no position on the issue.
Yannuzzi was the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce’s president for years.
Mayor Lou Barletta has not seen the brief, but was informed Monday afternoon it had been filed. He said he was “disappointed” by the U.S. Chamber’s actions.
“Unfortunately for some, this is more about businesses profiting than it is about illegal aliens,” Barletta said. “Our ordinance does the opposite. It stands up for the legal worker and punishes businesses trying to profit from the use of illegals. I’d rather be on the side of the American worker.”
Nice of them to so clearly identify themselves as traitorous weaselsnakes.
