    Just another lowlife that comes to our area to practice the trade of crime. You let the ACLU come into Hazleton to defend the rights of illegals and fight Barletta every step of the way instead of rising up as a community with Lou and demand these illegals be removed and the companies that employ them be shut down or comply with the law! You get what you deserve .
