Nebraaska Council Inks Law against Illegal Hiring PDF Print E-mail

FREMONT, Neb. -- The Fremont City Council in eastern Nebraska has adopted a voter-approved ban on hiring or renting homes to illegal immigrants.

Council members didn't discuss the ban before unanimously approving it Tuesday night.

The policy could take effect in about two weeks, but the American Civil Liberties Union has promised a lawsuit. Voters approved the measure last month.

Opponents say the plan is rooted in racism, but supporters say the ban is about people living in the U.S. illegally.

The ban requires city officials and employers to ensure that job and housing applicants are legally in the country. It was modeled after an ordinance in Hazelton, Pa., where the law has been tied up in legal challenges since it was approved in 2006.

(CNSNews.com) -- Sixty-three (63) members of the House and four senators, Republicans and Democrats, have weighed in on the legal case to defend the constitutionality of the National Day of Prayer.
 
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) filed an amicus (friend of the court) brief Thursday on behalf of the congressmen, members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, in the case of Freedom From Religion Foundation v. Obama, in which a Wisconsin federal district court declared unconstitutional the statute directing the president to declare the annual observance of the National Day of Prayer.

   (CNSNews.com) - U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert Groves told CNSNews.com on Wednesday that the Census has "no way, unfortunately, of knowing" whether or not homeless individuals were counted twice, and added, "we may have duplicates."

   As CNSNews.com reported on June 10, the Office of the Inspector General of the Commerce Department, which oversees the Census, published a report in May indicating that Census workers were instructed by a Census manual to recount homeless people who said they already had been counted.
 
   The IG's report also revealed that the enumerators (the workers who count people for the Census) were not required to collect homeless persons’ names and birth dates.
 
   During a conference call on Wednesday, CNSNews.com asked Dr. Groves, “What process is the Census using to remove duplicated records of homeless individuals who were recounted by enumerators and for which no name, birth date, or ethnicity information was collected?”
