Members of the Hispanic community gather on the steps of City Hall in Hazleton, Pa., during a peaceful candlelight vigil Wednesday, July 12, 2006. Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta proposed legislation called the "Illegal Immigration Relief Act Ordianance" that would make it illegal to rent property to or employ illegal immigrants, as well as make English the official language of the city. Hazleton City Council will vote on the ordinance Thursday evening, July 13, 2006. Two members of Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Rick Santorum's re-election campaign helped put together a Web site promoting the proposed Hazleton ordinance.
