Town Steps Up Against Illegal Immigration

h/t to Conservative Viewpoints for the story.

The town of Farmers Branch, Texas is fed up with illegal immigration, and they've decided to take measures to fight it. The citizens of this Dallas suburb voted to enact an ordinance which makes renting homes to illegal immigrants against the law. In fact, the vote passed with a resounding 68% of the vote.

There are those who are vocal opponents of the measure, and will attempt to fight the ordinance in court. However, no matter the outcome, it's nice to see individual cities and towns step up and take action when they feel it is necessary.

That, my friends, is democracy in action.
