SC town drops plan to ban illegal immigrants


A town near Charleston will not ban illegal immigrants from living in the community.

Summerville town councilors voted 4-3 to table an ordinance requiring renters to prove they are American citizens or in the country legally, according to the Associated Press. The ordinance would have required a verification form be filed with the town.

Several council members warned that the ordinance could lead to lawsuits that could cost the town millions.

Councilors voted 3 to 3 on tabling the motion. Mayor Berlin Myers cast the deciding vote.

Some 45,000 people live in Summerville.

Councilman Walter Bailey said last month that the idea was prompted in part by the Obama administration's challenge of the new Arizona immigration law.

A federal judge has blocked key aspects of that Arizona law, but Bailey says his Summerville ordinance is different enough to where he doesn't think the judge's ruling applies.

Franco,

How come the Observer refuses to update the story of the hit-and-run illegal aliens?

Franco has never stood up for American. The CO is very pro-illegal. And many there want open borders. This is why they quash stores like the hit-and-run by illegals. Franco has never met an legal he didn't like. Regardless of his/her crime.

Why are they refered to as illegals?

IF they now have a place to live, that is 'openly rolling out the welcome mat, lets ship all of ours down there as NC right now is #2 behind Texas in illegals due to NC's lax laws.
This is exactly the opposite of what Arizona is doing-kind of a slap-in-the-face of AZ.
Once the crime begins, once the accidents begin, once people begin losing their lives as a result of this ultra liberal stance,I would betcha they will change-their-tune.
Both the CO and BO should be extremely happy with this little morsel of news. Absolutely amazing how the liberals in DC, NC, SC and local governments are ABSOLUTELY GIVING THIS COUNTRY AWAY! ONCE its GONE, its GONE!

HERE IN ARIZONA THE STATE WAS SUED BY THE D.O.J. FOR S.B.1070, THE SHERIFF IS BEING SUED FOR FAILING TO GIVE THE D.O.J. RECORDS, & INVESTIGATED BY THE D.O.J. FOR "POSSIBLE CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AGAINST HISPANICS", THE BOARD OF EDUCATION IS BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE D.O.J. FOR FIRING "BILINGUAL TECHERS" THAT WEREN'T PROFICIENT IN ENGLISH THEMSELVES. THIS IS WHAT AWAITS ANY TOWN, CITY ,OR STATE THAT TRIES TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT "ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION". THERE ARE PEOPLE IN POWER THAT DEFINETLY "HATE AMERICA & AMERICANS"!
