Saved by Latinos
Ten years ago, Hazleton was a small coal-mining town in central Pennsylvania suffering a steep economic decline, with jobs dwindling and solid income scarce.
As some Hispanic undocumented migrants had started to move into the area, lawmakers pushed some ordinances to avoid the supposed "bad" influence of Latino, such as a law to ensure English was the official language of the town and a ban to stop landlords from renting to the undocumented. But these orders never came into effect, reports Vice magazine.
Now, the city is 50 percent Latino and seems to be on the rebound.
