Fremont, Nebraska Goes after Employers...of Illegal Immigrants

Fremont, Nebraska, a meat-packing town of about 25,000 people, voted Monday in favor by 57% to banish illegal immigrants from jobs by using a federal database, and rental homes by requiring renters to provide citizenship information to the police and to obtain city occupancy licenses, overturning an earlier decision by city leaders. The A.C.L.U Nebraska will file a lawsuit on grounds that it will cause discrimination and racial profiling. The good news here is that communities are beginning to take on illegal employers, who are the real cause of the so-called illegal alien crisis. The bad news is that local police are involved, meaning that people in the region who are there without documentation will be reluctant to call the police when they're the victims of crimes, turning them into easy targets for criminals ranging from burglars to rapists.
