Expect new restrictions on Middletown’s Hummer’s Parade in the wake of a float last year that mocked undocumented immigrants in cages.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that the float created a backlash with town officials saying the has been “haphazardly thrown together by the participants.

Under the proposed guidelines parade entries must avoid content that discriminates against, is offensive to any person or group of persons based on race, gender or national origin among other categories.

Symbols that would be banned include the Confederate Flag the swastika and blackface.

The proposed guideline are expected to be taken up by the mayor and city council tonight with the public invited to attend.
