Penn Law Alum Helps Overturn Pa. Town’s Anti-Immigration Law 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

When Hazleton, PA., became the first city in the nation to enact an ordinance curtailing the rights of illegal immigrants, Ilan Rosenberg, GL’02, knew he had to get involved.

Rosenberg, who emigrated from Mexico to the United States seven years ago, said he was motivated to work on the case because he did not think it fair to deny illegal immigrants due process or to treat them like criminals, particularly in a country built on immigration.

As a member of the Cozen O’Connor legal team, Rosenberg helped overturn Hazleton’s law. Last November, he joined three colleagues from the Philadelphia law firm in reviewing the case before a group of students at Penn Law. The firm worked pro bono.
