NE Town To Vote On Illegal Alien Measure

Neb. town to vote on illegal immigration measure

By Timberly Ross, Associated Press Writer Sun Jun 20, 2010

FREMONT, Neb. – Angered by a recent influx of Hispanic workers attracted by jobs at local meatpacking plants, voters in the eastern Nebraska city of Fremont will decide Monday whether to ban hiring or renting property to illegal immigrants.

The vote will be the culmination of a two-year fight that saw proponents collect enough signatures to put the question to a public vote. If the ordinance is approved, the community of 25,000 people could face a long and costly court battle.

In other words, the taxpayer supported 501c3 ‘charity,’ the ACLU will sue the city to try keep the residents from having a say in their own government.

This is how the ACLU helps secure the ‘rights’ of Americans all across the nation, by threatening costly (and bogus) lawsuits to frustrate the will of the people.

Either way, the emotions stirred up won’t settle quickly.

"Even if we say ‘no’ … we still need to say, ‘How do we get along with each other now?’" said Kristin Ostrom, who helps oversee a campaign against the measure.

Across the nation, people have been outraged by — and demanded action against — the poor enforcement of federal laws to prevent illegal immigration.

What a shocking admission from the Associated Press.

A law recently introduced in Arizona requires police to question people on their immigration status if there’s a "reasonable suspicion" they are illegal.

But of course the AP could not resist once again completely misrepresenting the Arizona law.

A man who helped write the Arizona law is helping to fight for the ordinance in Fremont, which has seen its Hispanic population surge in the past two decades. That increase is largely because they were recruited to work for the Fremont Beef and Hormel plants, and the city maintains an enviably low unemployment rate…

We somehow doubt that illegal aliens were “recruited to work for for the Fremont Beef and Hormel plants.” If so, the city should go after these employers for violating the law.

From about 165 Hispanics — both legal and illegal — living in Fremont in 1990, the total surged to 1,085 in 2000, according to census expert David Drozd at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He said an estimated 2,060 Hispanics lived there last year.

Lest we forget, we are talking about Nebraska here. If this surge is happening in Nebraska, it is happening all over the country.

If approved, the measure will require potential renters to apply for a license to rent. The application process will force Fremont officials to check if the renters are in the country legally. If they are found to be illegal, they will not be issued a license allowing them to rent.

The ordinance also requires businesses to use the federal E-Verify database to ensure employees are allowed to work…

How outrageous. By the way, why do we have a federal E-Verify database if communities aren’t supposed to use it?

Supporters of the proposal say it’s needed to make up for what they see as lax federal law enforcement. Opponents say it could fuel discrimination.

Yes, “discrimination” against people who are in this country illegally. In truth, all laws ‘discriminate’ against those who are doing what they outlaw. That is the way laws works.

The Fremont City Council narrowly rejected a policy similar to the proposed ordinance in 2008, but proponents got it to a public vote and the state Supreme Court refused to block it.

The Nebraska chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has threatened a lawsuit, and the city worries about the cost of defending the policy. The city has estimated the legal action would cost $1 million per year to fight — costs that would have to be covered by property tax raises and city job cuts

Whereas providing services for 2,000 illegal aliens costs nothing.

But really, something has to be done about the ACLU. They were founded as a communist front group to destroy this country. And they have not deviated from their mission one bit.

The ACLU are our real domestic terrorists.

    Kudos to this town. I do not believe they can pay for the inevitable lawsuits without outside help.

    Having worked directly with meat packing plants HR people as a consultant, I came away with the absolute belief that hiring illegals is part of their business plan. I would put in an employees SSN number to see validate his hearing test and see that there were 20 “Juan Gonzalez’s” that worked there all with the same SSN and birth date. I would look into it further and an many more would pop up at different meat plants (with the exact same info) throughout the country.

      Yep, my friend worked at the Department of Revenue, cross-checking tax returns.

      Guess what? Mexicans seem to share the same SSN. Driver’s license, taxes, rental property have multiple uses of the same number…and yes, MEAT PACKING PLANTS are the main culprits.

    • heykev says:

      I’m not entirely sure why Meat Packing Plants seem to be the main culprits for these criminal activities. I would talk to HR reps and nurses (as the test results were given to them) and they were upset about it, but would not do anything about it.

      Every few months you will read about a raid at a Meat Packing Plant and 100’s of illegal workers are found there. The NEXT DAY there’s always 5X as many who are waiting in line for those jobs than who were taken away by the Feds.

      It would make for a really good real news story as to why Meat Packing Plants are seemingly the main culprits in this. As if I’m not mistaken the DOJ once placed several plants CEO’s under investigation for this, but never heard the outcome. And I never expect to see someone do a series of articles on the illegal hiring in these plants. It’s against their template for articles.

    Isn’t it stange how places where crime is high or jobs are scarce because of illegal immigration seem to be upset about it, whereas college professors, millionaire politicians, and seiu workers are happy as clams to let anybody into the country.

    It’s almost like the president isn’t telling the whole truth about the matter.

  3. Mithrandir says:

    We are almost at the tipping point, where the citizens discover that GOVERNMENT IS COMPLETELY INEFFECTUAL AND CORRUPT.

    The citizens will be so frustrated with a government that refuses to protect them, obstructs every attempt at responsible civic activism, and decide that taking the law into their own hands is not only quicker, but immediate and effective.

    Who will be the first Mexicans gunned down because of the weight of these problems?

    Geez … this is too easy.


    (head slap)

    It passed yesterday with 57 percent voting for the ordinance.
