In a display of ridiculous nativism the Pahrump city council voted 3 to 2 on November 14, 2006 to pass an ordinance making the flying of any foreign flag either above the U.S. flag or alone an offense punishable by a $50 fine and 30 hours of community service. Town board clerk Paul Willis told Reuters in a telephone interview, "All of the illegal alien protesters are waving Mexican flags, and we just got tired of it...This is the United States, and the Stars and Stripes should fly supreme." Willis is the Vice Chairman of the Nevada Republican Party.
