Fremont, Nebraska is the newest combatant in the war against illegal immigration.
Yesterday, voters in the town approved legislation to ban hiring or renting property to illegal immigrants.
The legislation was introduced because the residents of the town became worried because they feel that most of the jobs in the local meat packing plants are going to illegal immigrants and fear the unemployment rate for citizens could rise.
The measure was approved by 57% of the voters Monday evening.
The local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union of course has promised to file a lawsuit against the town due to the "racist" nature of the legislation.
When are people going to get it? When are they going to realize that this is not being racist?
When are these idiots going to understand that ILLEGAL means it is AGAINST the law?!?!?
I feel like I am banging my head against the wall here but I'm going to repeat myself here. If you are in this country illegally, you are breaking the law! That simple.
The fact that this poor little community in Nebraska is being thrown into the national spotlight because they finally decided to do something that the federal government has failed to do is a testament to the massive failures of that government.
The state legislature in Nebraska has also stated that it plans to introduce legislation similar to the new Arizona law that has garnered so much national attention.
I say good for them and I condemn the ACLU for wasting their resources to oppose a law that the PEOPLE of the city voted for.
