Federal Judge Enjoins Part of Fremont, Nebraska Immigration OrdinancePublished: Feb 21, 2012 9:30 am
U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp has issued a 37-page summary judgment enjoining the City of Fremont, Nebraska "from enforcing certain parts of the ordinance that prohibit the harboring of illegal aliens and provide for the revocation of occupancy licenses."
The Court's ruling permits the enforcement of the employment provisions of the immigration ordinance that was approved by voters in a June 2010 special election.
Judge Smith declined to enjoin provisions of the ordinance that require employers to verify the immigration status of employees and also requires renters to obtain an “occupancy license” prior to renting a house or apartment. Both sides of the debate are claiming victory.
