The Commercial Appeal
Tough immigration ordinance upheld
OMAHA — An eastern Nebraska city’s ordinance that bans employing or renting property to people who are not in the U.S. legally is valid, a federal appeals panel ruled Friday, opening the door for Freemont to begin enforcing its law.
In 2010, voters in the city of about 26,000 easily approved the measure.
The ordinance also required businesses to use federal E-verify software to check on potential employees.
