    Proposed Law to Keep Illegal Immigrants Out of Nebraska Town Causes Uproar



    Saturday, July 12, 2008

    A proposed law aimed at booting illegal immigrants from Fremont, Neb., is causing an uproar among residents and inciting cries of racism.

    The law, which applies to illegal immigrants who were born in the United States and those who came to the country later, would require everyone who rents property in Fremont to hold an occupancy license, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

    The application for the license asks people to verify their legal right to live in the United States and must be rubber-stamped by local police, according to the paper.

    "I'll fight to the dying end to do what they want," longtime Councilman Bob Warner said of constituents who advocate the legislation. "I don't know why everybody is making a mountain out of something that is very simple."

    Warner, the bill's sponsor, said some residents are "sick and tired" of what he believes is the federal government's lax approach to enforcing immigration.

    The license costs $5 and needs to be renewed each time the renter moves. Those who are caught lying on the application and those renting without a license are subject to fines of up to $500.

    Why is it causing an uproar? Because people that AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE HERE MIGHT GET CAUGHT?

    It's like a bank robber protesting surveillance cameras in banks. Or speeders protesting radar traps. Or thieves protesting people locking the doors at night or when they're gone. Or car thieves protesting LoJack. It's ridiculous. If you're here LEGALLY, then you have NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT!

    Let the illegals protest, all the way back to where they fucking came from as they're deported.
