Town seeks ban for illegal immigrants


SUMMERVILLE --- Dozens of people turned out Wednesday night to discuss a proposal to prohibit illegal immigrants.

The town council considered an ordinance proposed by Councilman Walter Bailey to prevent illegal immigrants from living in the town of 45,000 and, in most cases, from working there.

The council was expected to consider giving initial reading later to the proposal.
