PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – Santa isn’t welcome in Hazleton
because he’s an illegal immigrant just like all the others the
Pennsylvania town is trying to get rid of — or so someone
would have you believe.
A new Web site, http://www.nosantaforhazleton.com, says the
town intends to keep Santa out this Christmas because he
represents the illegal immigration the town council believes
increases crime and burdens local services.
But the site is a hoax, created by someone in a bid to
satirize a local law passed in July that has attracted national
attention by imposing penalties on businesses and landlords to
deter them from hiring or renting rooms to illegal immigrants.
