Sen. Delph: ACLU files lawsuit that appears to be against Hoosiers in favor of illegal immigrants
STATEHOUSE (May 25, 2011) – State Sen. Mike Delph (R-Carmel), author of the measure cracking down on illegal immigration in Indiana, offered the following comments on today’s court filing by the Indiana ACLU in an effort to stop the enforcement of certain provisions in Senate Enrolled Act 590.
“Though I have not had the opportunity to review the specifics of the filing, it appears the ACLU has filed a lawsuit against citizens of Indiana in favor of illegal immigrants,” Delph said. “This is not surprising given their very liberal leanings. What is equally unsurprising is their team of immigration attorneys that continue to profit financially off the backs of this captive market. Illegal immigration is just that – illegal. Those here unlawfully need to return to their country of origin and re-enter by lawful means. It’s time we stand up for the taxpayer and the American citizen who wants nothing less than existing law enforced.”
