Hazleton was home to the first local government in the US to pass an "Illegal Immigration Relief Act" which became a model for other cities seeking to implement their own immigration regulations. The residents felt a sense of "class downgrading". The ordonnance was central in creating divisions between the native-born population and recent Latino arrivals.
