Neb. city council votes to delay immigration law - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100728/ap_on_re_us/us_nebraska_immigration - broken link)

Quote:
A voter-approved ban on hiring and renting property to illegal immigrants was suspended late Tuesday by the Fremont City Council, less than two days before it was set to take effect in the eastern Nebraska city.
Quote:
The ACLU and the Mexican American Legal Defense & Education Fund say the Fremont ordinance amounts to discrimination.

It is really amazing how threats of being sued and the thoughts of legal fees can keep cities and states from doing what they feel is really best for them. It makes no sense to me to keep getting bullied by groups like ACLU and MALDEF. These groups KNOW what they are doing. Do those groups have the money to keep a lawsuit going on and on? What money will they have in larger amounts than a city? Also, wouldn't stopping the trend and growth of an undocumented population in a community actually be good over time in regards to money? I mean, the city of Fremont is afraid of spending the money on court costs, but while they delay this or eventually give it up (even though the people of Fremont voted FOR it) more and more undocumented people are going to be living there, using resources and having more children, adding to the costs. So, I don't know if these people are really thinking out things. How can this city council vote 8 to 0 in favor of delaying a law that the people voted for? There needs to be a national group started that is just like the ACLU and MALDEF that will SUPPORT cities and states that want to do what is right for their community and not have to be afraid to because they can't afford it.

Wouldn't it make sense if the FEDERAL government could cover the court costs? Wouldn't that be the nationally-correct thing to do? The city of Fremont should be supported in this by the country that has already set the law that being here undocumented is illegal. So why or why should a city have to give into undocumented immigrants and these groups because they are afraid that they can't afford to go to court.

This is sad.

I thought aiding and abetting criminals was illegal.
Isn't hiring or renting property to illegals aiding them?

Exactly. This is getting really bad, the federal goverment is just letting them get away with everything and it is like we have no say. This is truly an injustice. They don't realize though, the more they violate the people, the more fired up people will get and start making their own groups, getting their own attorneys. We need a group of attorneys that are against illegal immigration and funding, then the people can start countering these crooked organizations that try to make cities and states afraid of enforcing the law and thereby making their cities more enjoyable again and less taxing.

We, the taxpayers are paying for the feds to sue, it's our money, we should be able to sue the feds too. The feds act like they are covering this personally and not through taxes.

So true, tax payer monies are not being spent to protect us.
If cities are going broke that are over run with illegal aliens then
this is proof that laws we vote in should not be challenged once the majority agree as such. its redundant and a waste of time and money.

Funny thing is, if you stop paying taxes then to jail you go. It's lose-lose for us.
