Federal judge extended block on Pennsylvania city immigration laws

On November 6, 2006, a judge for the US District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania ruled to extend a temporary restraining order blocking enforcement of two Hazleton, Pennsylvania immigration laws. The temporary restraining order was initially set to expire on November 14. The city's Illegal Immigration Relief Act and Landlord Tenant Ordinance, adopted earlier that year, were designed to make it more difficult for undocumented immigrants to live or work in Hazleton. The court later held that the ordinances were unconstitutional, a decision which was upheld by the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
