September 28, 2006
ACLU Press Release – 8/15/2006
The ACLU of Florida has sent a letter to the city of Palm Bay opposing the city’s proposed anti-illegal immigration ordinance. It claims that local governments have no right to police illegal immigration and that the ordinance will lead to discrimination.
The letter threatened, “…the City of Palm Bay and its taxpayers could be responsible for monetary and legal costs associated with the litigation.”
