Keep Out

Is the holiday spirit in conflict with new anti-immigration legislation being passed in small towns and larger municipalities all across the nation? As an example of mock Virtualpolitik, the No Santa for Hazelton website draws attention to a recent local ordinance in Pennsylvania intended to exclude illegal immigrants from the community. Its web-based rhetoric suggests that consistent citizens will bar Santa, a blatantly undocumented worker from the foreign North, from their homes and businesses this Christmas.
