The town of Hazleton, Pennsylvania has disclosed the hometown and donation amount of people who have donated to their legal defense fund to fight for their Illegal Immigration Relief Act against well funded organizations like the ACLU.
As was requested, Jarrod Tranguch, an attorney working for the city solicitor, disclosed the information, but did not provide any sensitive personal data which could be used for retribution by the pro illegal alien groups.

According to information released by attorney Jarrod Tranguch, the fund had a balance of $32,152, as of Friday. The amounts of the individual contributions are listed, along with hometowns of the donors. No names were provided.
Donations from people in Pennsylvania totaled $2,820 ... California ranked second among the 36 states that are included on the donor list; 39 California donors gave more than $1,400.
Tranguch said the city could not determine where some of the donations originated, particularly in cases where a letter may have been included with a check indicating support of the defense fund, but subsequently could not be matched up with a particular check.
Given that the 297 private donations in that list total $11,695, it appears the city received about $20,000 from organizations.
Tranguch said that, according to the city, there are “no known public or elected officials” to have made donations. There are some organizations that have contributed, and the city is still compiling that list.
I think this was a reasonable compromise on disclosure without putting the security of those who contributed in harms way by these groups who claim they are racists and bigots.
