Fremont, Nebraska Wants Own Immigration Laws

with one comment

Fremont citizens step up and say enough is enough.

Fremont’s is the first city council in the state to propose an ordinance that would ban harboring and renting to illegal immigrants. Lawmakers in other U.S. localities have introduced similar initiatives, often later struck down by the courts, according to national immigration groups.

Bob Warner, the longtime councilman who sponsored Fremont’s proposal, said he did so because residents were “sick and tired” of what he said was the federal government’s lax enforcement of immigration laws.

He said Fremont residents want their own immigration laws.”I’ll fight to the dying end to do what they want,” Warner said. “I don’t know why everybody is making a mountain out of something that is very simple.”
