Split Decision on Nebraska Immigration Law

Split Decision on Nebraska Immigration Law

"Though a federal judge struck down a portion of the controversial Fremont, Neb., immigration ordinance Monday, the wrangling is not over.  Both sides claimed victory. Though U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp threw out portions of the ordinance that barred landlords from providing housing to illegal immigrants, she let stand provisions that require employers to verify the immigration status of their workers and require tenants to obtain an “occupancy license” before they can rent a house or apartment.  Both sides have 30 days to decide whether to appeal to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals." - Omaha World-Herald, Feb. 21, 2012.
