On November 14, 2009 , several  members of the North Eastern PA Chapter of  Keystone United attended a  local Tea Party Against Amnesty. This event was hosted by Voice of the People USA, in  Hazleton, PA.  This small city gained national recognition in 2006 when the mayor Lou Barletta tried to pass the Illegal Immigration Relief Act, which levied fines against employers that hired illegal aliens and landlords who had given them residency within the city as well.

The event started at 2:00pm in front of City Hall. We arrived there approximately at 1:45 to be surprised to see no one was there. As time moved on we were joined by two ladies who drove out of their way to make it to this event. The women were very disappointed to see only 4 people there when they arrived, but they were glad to see such young faces being active in a pro-American cause.

With six people being in attendance at the beginning of the event, Keystone United’s regional director of NEPA , Steve Smith, had an opportunity to do an interview for a local TV channel in Hazleton, which seemed to turn out well.  Off the record, the reporter and the cameraman admitted to being on the same side as the Tea Party . Unfortunately, none of us were able to see the outcome of the interview due to the fact that we didn’t receive the channel back in our area. (more…)
