Rights groups sue city over im­mi­gra­tion law

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

FRE­MONT — The two law­suits filed against a small Ne­braska city for its ban on hir­ing and rent­ing to il­le­gal im­mi­grants wor­ried some in the com­mu­nity that it would only worsen ten­sions over the new or­di­nance. The Amer­i­can Civil Lib­er­ties Union and the Mex­i­can Amer­i­can Le­gal De­fense and Ed­u­ca­tional Fund filed law­suits against Fre­mont, say­ing the voter-ap­proved or­di­nance amounted to dis­crim­i­na­tion.
