Mayor

Tom Macklin, mayor of Avon Park, Fla., is shown in an undated photo. City leaders are considering revising a proposed ban on assistance to illegal immigrants after learning its broad scope might block the construction of a Wal-Mart. Macklin, who has championed the measure, said the city's "Illegal Immigration Relief Act" was modeled on a similar law from Hazleton, Pa. Hazelton's law, which gained national attention, was set for a final vote Thursday, July 13, 2006.
