Mayors Message Not All That Clear

They Mayor of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, is apparently sending mixed messages to community members in trying to pass a new city ordinance called the "Illegal Immigration Relief Act".

While the message is clearly stated on the cities website in the form of a letter from the Mayor about what this action is indeed meant to do, rid the town of these pesky, leaching, crime inducing population, it became evident that many people in this small community of around 30,000 residents, especially those who do not own a computer nor attend political gatherings, continue to depend on hearsay for their local news.

Some residents along with several business owners said they are confused by this proposed legislation because to them it sounds like the Mayor is asking them to help illegal immigrants by providing some 'relief' to help alleviate some of their daily struggles.

One local woman jumped at the chance to reach out to her neighbors.

"When I heard about their plight and what the Mayor was trying to do, I got in the car, drove down to the grocery store and bought the family up the street a few bags of groceries because I know they've got it rough," she said. "Always on the run from the law, trying to get free medical attention and sending the kids off to these overcrowded schools here has got to be pretty draining so I think what the Mayor is doing is really a great idea."

One business owner even offered up his garage to a family of twelve and created several new positions in his company to accommodate these new employees.

"I thought it was the right thing to do considering how hard they have it," he said.

These acts of kindness were spreading rapidly throughout the entire city because word travels fast in a small town.

The Mayor's reaction was noted in the local newspaper.

Upon hearing the news that the townspeople were banding together to help the towns illegal population several witnesses say they saw the Mayor walk out of City Hall and begin banging his head against the wall.
